    Oddly enough , last time I tried it I'd used it successfully with about 5 different snakes ( and types ) then I tried it with one of my most docile ones - an adult Albino Florida King and she immediately went CRAZY biting and lunging in every which way .. I realised then that the smells of all the previously photographed snakes had presumably driven her to distraction !! ( kings are snake eaters )

    I tried her later after wiping the table top and the black cover down thoroughly and she was perfectly calm !

    Re: So this happened

    So i went ahead and fed sonny two small rats this past thursday (6 days ago in about 12 hours), and was hoping to see how much time before he started roaming and pushing again. He went 5 days. I came home last night and his bowl was flipped, hides moved, and reptichip cleared from the front of the enclosure. I can tell he's hungry also because whenever i come by the cage he perks up and pokes his head out of his hide. I wouldve thought that doubling the food wouldve have slowed him down a bit but i guess not. I was kind of worried it was a bit on the larger side but he pooped and by his looks and behavior you'd think he is starved haha. I was planning on giving him a single small again this week (i was planning on feeding today but my supplier is closed until tomorrow) and seeing if it holds him over the same before i definitively bump him up to 2 per feed. He seems way too slender for mediums but smalls dont leave much of a lump like they used too.

    Also, ive got a brand new chest freezer that will be ready for pick up friday so i can cut out the middle man and buy in bulk as well as get sonny some variety, pretty stoked about it.

    Re: So this happened

    Here's a couple of comparison pictures, the first is the day i got sonny 10/1/17, the second is about a week and a half later, and the last was today (1/1/15/17) when i pulled him out to clean a nice pile of poo.

    Re: So this happened

    Photo dump! Sonny is about 7 months old now and around 5 feet long. Here’s some pics taken throughout the past couple of weeks.





    And this last one is his favorite hiding spot, once he’s in he stays put while I get to clean his turds and flipped water bowl

    Enjoy it while you can. Soon, it will take 2 hands, 2 arms, 2 shoulders and half the snake will still be dragging on the floor when you walk haha. I looked back on Caesar's pic the day i got him and was able to hold him in 1 hand. Now i literally have to half wrap him around myself to keep him from dragging on the floor haha. Just so glad he is a giant attention craving lush.

    Yeah at this rate it wonít be long haha. Looks like I might as well just go ahead and get his 8ft AP now, he looks so small coiled up but he almost reaches half the perimeter of his boaphile now

    Re: So this happened

    Sonny is growing so fast! Itís really hard to get a decent picture of him stretched out, so I posted what I was able to get. Iím 6í2 if that helps at all. My arms are longer than average and my hands are really big so he never looks as big as he actually is in the pics, but heís definitely at LEAST 5.5 ft and growing fast. He ate two large rats 5 days ago and heís already acting like heís ready for another meal. He hasnít started pushing yet though so Iím going to see how much longer heíll let me go without feeding him.
