    Re: Miss Kitty

    A little update. She's up to about 800gr now. And is eating a 50gr small rat per week. Except when in shed when she wont eat for a couple weeks.
    She still has the same calm demeanor and has still never huffed or hissed when handled. She does get a bit squirmy when held and will about back up off your hand if your not careful.
    I'm glad she's still holding onto her coloration well. She muddies up a bit when going into shed. But brightened up afterward. Now for a few pictures.

    I'm glad to see she is growing and doing great! She is gorgeous! I am willing to bet that she is probably a Sumatran x Borneo hybrid. She has the markings of a Borneo, but the coloration of a Sumatran. Aren't you able to ask the breeder? Either way, very pretty girl!

    I agree that she could be either or both. It reminds me of these that were sold last year - on their site it says Borneo, but they previously labeled them as crosses. I will bet they were telling the truth the first time.

    Honestly, if you can't verify exactly which species it is, breeding isn't a good idea. I'm sure she will make a wonderful pet, but there is so much confusion already with crosses - pure orange head Sumatrans are not always easy to find right now.

    A little update on 'lil miss Kitty. Still as calm as day one and even less uneasy being held off the ground. She's up to about 1200g, and I don't think her colors have shifted much if at all. I've been feeding her a small rat each week with the occasional refusal to eat. Which is typically when I try to feed a larger small rat. She's still my favorite to get out. She just sits on my lap and snoops around a little, but rarely leaves a 3 foot area.

    Likewise! Never was tempted to get a blood before, but they just look like such an awesome species to work with... now I have to admit I spend quite a bit of time browsing for them.

    Hmmmmmm. Decisions. Decisions.

    Hereís a little update on my orange headed girl. Sheís a bit over 1.6kg and as calm as ever. She just had a shed a couple days before these pictures. Iíve started to move her onto every other week feeding medium rats. Still loving these short tails and am thinking about adding another in te future.

    I jumped on board the STP train a few months back and I'm glad I did. My Borneo is unlike any snake I've ever kept or handled.

    When researching, I saw a quote that said "ball pythons are for reptile lovers and STPs are for snake lovers." So it almost sounded like a "challenge" and ended up motivating me to learn more about STPs and i ultimately made the decision to go that route.

    Re: Miss Kitty

    Hereís a little update on my squishy girl. I finally put a tape measure on her. She is 46Ē from tip of tail to tip of nose and an even 2kg. I was actually surprised at how well she sat there and took being measured. I weigh her about once a month, but donít tape my snakes often as itís a pita usually, since they donít like the tape being touched to them.
    I decided to get a short tail since I like there max size expectations, big but still handle able. I was expecting to see an attitude and some fussy ness, but Iíve seen none. Usually I can just slide out the tub, crack the lid and pull her on out after digging her out of the bedding or water bowl. The only time I have to watch is when she is hungry. Then she will go after anything thatís warm. Iíve still never seen a tantrum out of her that short tails are known for.
    And here are some pictures.
