    Getting bigger... and getting darker... Still anxious and not inquisitive about me whatsoever, unless I tell myself that his activity when taken out is inquisitiveness (it isn't). He has only come out of his enclosure of his own accord twice ever so far. The rest is the same old, he'll sit there and look around anxiously until I pick him up, or he tries to flee. Keeping him is no different than any other docile quirky colubrid LOL. I would switch him out for a keeled rat snake if his personality is still like this as an adult, because the rumored inquisitive/outgoing personality that owners rave about is the entire reason why I picked schrenckii, not so much their looks.





    Also, there's been a wildfire nearish in the hills in the next city over. I hope it gets stopped soon and the weather better stop being so hot. Evacuating with my snakes would suck! :S

    Jack is getting so handsome and looks awesome in natural daylight! Here is hoping once he grows more he'll be more bold with you and less cautious! Also hoping everyone stays safe!

    I don't think I mentioned on the forum, but Jack rattled his tail at me the other day!! LOL. It was hitting the side of the tank and super loud too, very amusing. But also why Jack.

    It was when I opened his cage and reached in, he was apprehensive about me.

    It's just a warning to you to not touch or disturb them at that moment .. just like a dog's warning growl ...
