    Re: So this happened

    Update: The swelling in his mouth has gone down significantly. Not 100% back to normal but definitely a whole lot better. Looks like it will surely clear up on its own in the next day or two. Thanks a ton Jmcrook and AbsoluteApril for the input, much appreciated.

    Re: So this happened

    So Sonny-boy is looking better, he started the shed process a day or two after his last meal and his blue cleared up yesterday so hell be in his fresh paintjob sometime this week. His face looks fine, his mouth looks 90% better. Also a new box with $200 worth of rats and rabbits will be on my doorstep no later than Saturday, all for him. Im also debating just building him an 8x3x19 melamine enclosure to last him until Im ready to throw and extra grand at an AP for him.

    Re: So this happened

    Welp Sonny shed sometime last night and woke me up by banging around in his cage and shaking the whole tower. I got him out and cleaned his enclosure but his mouth is a bit swollen again. Im gunna go pick up a rat to hold him over, my shipment will be here Thursday but I dont want to try and make him wait that long. I want his face to look normal again.
    heres what it looks like now:

    Re: So this happened

    Cleaning day and feeding day for Sonny! I love this snake, he's got such a laid-back personality. I grabbed a few pictures of him during cleaning and after about 20 minutes of handling. Had to keep it short today but he's got a rat thawing so he'll be content. Also snagged him a new bowl from tractor supply, it holds more water and takes up less space than the make-shift one i had before. I also want to try and get an accurate weight on him soon, all i know is when he goes dead weight when i try and pull him out one handed he's heavy as sh*t, haha.






    I've started picking up all of the materials for Sonnys new cage, the only thing i'm waiting on is having enough free time to sit down and build it. It's going to be 6x3x 19 in tall i believe is what i had worked out. As of right now it looks like ill have the weekend two weeks out to get it built. I also still need to order a RHP for it which ill probably order this week.

    Re: So this happened

    Just got home from work and the snakes have decided to destroy their enclosures. Sonny is the only one that soaked everything though. Took one look at him and saw that he was bashing his face up while I was at work, so it's feeding day. Ive got his food thawing as we speak. He also had a tooth sticking out, which we got out with ease. I opened up his cage and propped him with his head out, and he let me rest his head on one hand while i grabbed the tooth via tweezers with the other. I didn't think it'd be so easy. His cage is scrubbed now and we're just waiting to feed so I can finally go to sleep.







    Even with all the work this guy is, Im so glad I picked him up last year.

    That poor boa. Noisy upstairs neighbor! I had one of those back in grad school.


    Sonny is absolutely gorgeous!
    Too Many...

    That's what my wife says

    Re: So this happened

    Finally have a day off so I went to pull Sonny out for some quality enrichment time. I put him back pretty quick though, as he has massive sausage butt going on and without a doubt is going to make a HUGE mess tonight, and Id much rather it stays in his enclosure. Hopefully hes voided tonight so I can get him out for cleaning and pictures/enrichment tomorrow.

    Re: So this happened

    Sure enough Sonny exploded early this morning. I gave him a nice soak while I scrubbed his enclosure down, and he even hung out in his tub while I petted/rinsed him down. Super cool experience, it's amazing how calm and trusting he is. So after about 30 minutes of scrubbing his enclosure and getting it set up again, and then a bit of handling he decided to try and squeeze into his water bowl, flooding his enclosure. Sooo I changed it out again and decided what the heck and kept him out with me a bit longer. I also cant really get pictures during handling without a second person anymore, he's just too big now. He's prowling his cage at the moment, and i'm really hoping he just settles in and doesnt start pushing. Last feeding which was only 4 days ago he got a 2XL rat AND his 1st 1lb rabbit. It left a pretty good lump, but here we are. He's pretty much a stomach with eyes and sharp teeth.

    Heres the sh!t storm:



    And some post cleaning shots, flooding the water included:
