    Re: So this happened

    Weighed Sonny the other day for the first time in a while. 16.2 lbs empty. I wouldíve guessed a lot more, 16lbs feels a lot heavier when itís all muscle and has a mind of its own

    Re: So this happened

    Sonny update; pushing. Stuffed him a few weeks ago, gonna pick up some big rats monday and hite'm with the old rat rat rabbit combo to ease him for another few weeks. Got him out for some sunlight today, most definitely not going to be pulling him out without anyone home anymore.


    This one he decided it was time to explore and squeezed my left leg so hard it fell asleep. Thats when the lightbulb switched that hey; not a great idea. Luckily hes still super calm.



    Here he decided the chair was his now


    and heres 15 minutes later after giving up on removing him myself. He sat here pretty content for another 10 minutes after i brought him in the house.

    Still trying to think of a bad ass name, suggestions are welcome.
    $800 for a hypo granite burm wow that is major price in the uk they are £200 -£250 max wow I cannot believe the prices you pay over in states

    Re: So this happened

    So Sonny had been looking good, mild push face, and was post meal lounging for the past week. He refused his rabbit and ate two big rats. Checked him yesterday and he was curled under the heat, checked him today and his cage was destroyed from pushing and he managed to damage about 8 inches of his scales on his back pretty badly. It appears that he somehow managed to push a 1/4 gap in his slider open and started to squeeze through, and then realized he couldn’t fit out and scraped his back on the way back in. There was definite bleeding and now I’ve got to treat it daily. At this point I’m not really sure what to do. I’m going to place an order solely of colossal rats and switch him back to weekly feedings. If we can’t tame down the pushing within that period I’m going to have to rehome him. I don’t think it’s fair to him and I’m not sure what else to do at this point. I’m really really hoping it doesn’t come to that because he’s the best snake aside from his constant pushing.
    Anyone have any ideas?

    Re: So this happened

    Also in regards to his latest mishap; I noticed a good amount of substrate jammed in the edge of the slider, and realized that when I last locked the cage the slider lock was one click looser that usual due to the blockage. Typically this would not have been possible. Just goes to show how much diligence is required with these guys. Iíve been able to mend everything else heís done so far so we should be okay, but I do feel bad and pretty conflicted at this point.

    I feel you dude. Rehoming is a tough decision to make but I canít blame you at all. Do right by your animal, thereís no judgement here whatever the decision is

    Re: So this happened

    Hopefully im not jynxing it here, but it appears we have fixed Sonnys pushing problem. Someone told me even though my temperatures seemed alright to try unplugging his heat panel and just give him the ambient room temperatures. It seems to have done the trick. Ive been going every two weeks giving him two large rats and he has'nt been busting his face up at all. Now to just hope his face heals all the way, it looks as though he may have a cyst from the whole ordeal.
