    Lol was going to say, you stuff something over Caesar and he is going to push it off and continue onward. Nothing stops his forward progress, not even his face being beaten up like Rocky Balboa from a glass door lol.

    And on a side note, not sure what got into Rango last night but he was beating up his warm hide like a bad redheaded stepchild. I was seeing that thing lift into the air and shift around lol. And Luna went crazy and somehow managed to move her water bowl almost across the width if her 4x2 cage. Not sure how she did that.

I'm actually going to be setting up a little designated photo shoot set soon for taking professional pictures of my snakes and i'm going to heavily light the set with full spectrum bulbs...
    Yeah, i made a makeshift photo booth, for fairly cheap and just used florescent lights i had for my light fixtures around the house. It comes out pretty nice, but still nothing compared to seeing with your own eyes



    Heck, the cat will put up with my shenanagins more than the 'tic lol.
    I just used a tutorial from youtube, and ive used this one many times so its pretty banged up. I think im either going to make one thats heavier duty or just buy one online.

    Rambo has as of late decided to completely abandon his hide, he forces his way under his water bowl and sleeps with it leaning on his back. And Enzo has always been a re-decorator. She destroys everything haha

    Lol yeah all of the snakes have been out lately. Gina has abandoned her hides the past few days and sleeps behind them or buries herself under the aspen with just her head poking out at the front by the doors. I thought she pooped or pissed in them so i checked and nope, they are clean. Louie has been out the past few nights too which is surprising as he usually just sits in his hides unless i pick him up. I think he is finally feeling more comfortable. Dinner time is Friday so maybe that is why everyone is starting to perk up and wander around at night except Caesar and Dottie who are both in shed.

    As for the photo booth, looks nice. I'm too lazy and just plop my snakes either on the bed, the floor or outside on a chair or myself for photos lol. I'm also only using a little point and click pocket job camera. If i actually invested in a good camera and a made a photo booth, i bet i could make my snakes looks a lot better than the pics i get them in now haha.

    Is something going on?! My snakes have all been acting odd as well and leaving hides and just sort of hanging out. What is going on, is it the snakepocalypse?

    Re: So this happened

    Funny enough, today is day 6 since Sonny's last meal and when i woke up this morning he had flipped his water bowl and pushed all of the reptichip out of one corner of his boaphile. Maybe he only pushes in secret.

    That bowl trick can work great with most snakes but I do notice when I try it with a retic, as soon as the bowl is lifted, BAM, they are zooming all over the place. Easier to just take photos of them in cage when they are resting otherwise wriggly noodles are stretched out with a mission on their mind and no time for our photo tomfoolery.
