    Miss Kitty

    My little borneo shed again, so I've gotta do an update on her. Her post shed weight is 402gr and she eats like a pig. I've got her in 2 rat pups per week now, they add up to about 40-50gr. I was sort of hoping she would have a bit of an attitude (hence, Miss Kitty for the Gunsmoke fans), but se has the most calm demeanor. Even when deep in blue she is very tolerant of any handling. After getting her settled in she hasn't shown any huffy arritude or nippyness.

    I love her colors more and more as she sheds. Her whites go bright and clean, then appear to melt into her caramel banding over her back. Her head is lightening a little but is still a nice orange.

    Migt as well show her off a little.

    That is one beautiful snake! I love her colors and pattern.

    Re: Miss Kitty


    My little girl is slowly getting bigger. She skipped a couple of meals wen I tried bumping her into 45g small rats from 20g pups. But she's currently sitting at 570g and starting to get a bit thicker. And still calm as ever. Never once bit or been huffy. I'm still waiting to see the famous attitude. The last month it has been hard getting any of the snakes out to handle them due to an auto accident, but I can still sit and handle them a bit. It's just more difficult, I'm glad she's still small since I'm on a 5 pound weight limit until my eye heals up.

    Thanks for looking,
    Kyle

    Might as well get a look at her home. She almost needs a bigger water bowl, cage almost overflows it when she gets in.

    Gorgeous !!!

    I used to have a Borneo, was also puppydog tame from day one and you couldn't make him bite if you wanted to.
    When these snakes are tame, they make the best "pet snakes". You should be glad you got a sweet one, because "Hell hath not fury like a angry short tail python". They really throw everything they got into their tantrums, LOL !!!

    Re: Miss Kitty

    Thanks! I love her look and attitude.
    I actually think she's an orange headed Sumatran, or a hybrid between that and a borneo. She looks identical to the pictures on VPI website. And I saw a table at an expo a couple months ago that looks identical to her that were the Sumatran. I had been wondering why I couldn't find any borneos that looked like her, I think that would be why. Plus the scales on her head have a gap, not touching.

    She does look more like a Sumatran. Could be a hybrid, but could also be all Sumatran. If she gets darker as she gets older, then you'll know for sure Would explain the great temperament, they are supposed to be the calmest..although my Borneo was a puppy..

    Funny I was going to ask where you got her and if you were sure on species, does look like a northern sstp or maybe a hybrid. Pretty girl either way. If I had an extra spot I would pick up an orange head sstp in a heartbeat to even out my collection, there are some really nice looking ones out there.
