    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.

    How is Jack doing? Has he become more inquisitive/better towards you? Some say it takes them a while to get out of shy mode.
    Hope he's doing better for you.

    I sold him a month or two ago! He was about 1 year and 4 months old. He basically is just as inquisitive or not inquisitive as any other average colubrid, but people I saw online have really hyped it up with a bit of projection, so my expectations were different from reality LOL. I strictly bought him for what people describe so lavishly about their personality, but turns out he hides all day like a ball python. Just a typical docile, shy snake.

    And funnily, my friend Missterdog with Kallari the melanistic russian rat snake and I compared notes as Kallari and Jack grew up, and Jack is on the shy side even in comparison to Kallari. So I guess I just lucked out with a ball python in a russian rat snake body LOL.

    But Genesis, my northern pine snake hatchling, is showing all the activity, boldness, and inquisitiveness that Jack didn't have- I absolutely love her. So she made up for it!
