    Talion Progression Thread

    Well, the noodle finally arrived! We had a two hour drive to go get him, and now he's home :3

    In my excitement I completely forgot to take any pictures before we put him away. We did weigh him though and he's all of 78 grams. He hatched July 10th, so he's just under four months.

    I did open his lid and take a quick picture of him, so we had SOMETHING to document his first day here. Poor little man is pretty scared though, stuck at his hide when I was putting it back. Won't be bothering him until feeding day.

    Breeder said to try him on Friday, but I'm thinking I should give him a full week to chill out. Thoughts?

    Anyways, here he is! I'll get more, and in better lighting in a few weeks when he's settled in.

    Beautiful boy!

    When it comes down to the when to feed question there are different schools of thought. Some go by a hard fast wait a week rule. I personally prefer to read my snake. If he is starting to peek his head out by Friday and is active at night chances are that he'll be ready to feed.

    Thank you! Clowns always have to most interesting head stamps, don't they? And the uniqueness of his pattern was the deal breaker between him and his brother for sure.

    Thanks

    That's probably exactly what I'll do in terms of feeding him. If he seems ready on Friday I'll go for it, if not he can wait the full week. Thanks for the input.

    Thank you! I'll let the little sir know the next time I see him.


    On our way outside to let the dog out before bed last night I saw him climbing on his vine and exploring a bit.

    So happy! I just want to go hold him but.. must. resist. the. urge.

    Thanks! He was my favorite too. Plus I'm pretty sure the other snake that he switched to f/t was actually not the second snake that we were considering sooooooo that made the final choice pretty easy haha.


    Also, I know this is an awful picture, but I'm so happy to see him go for his quick little explorations at night! This is taken through the tub, so I'm sorry, but it's the closest thing to interaction that I have right now xD

    I could stare at him all day <3

    He ate!!

    *happy dance*

    I'm such a proud momma right now! I wasn't sure if he was actually settled in enough to eat, and the smallest rat fuzzies that the store had were a tad on the large side for him. Tim assured me they would be fine, so I figured why not, let's try today. I've caught him poking around once or twice at night and it's been a week and a bit since his last meal with Tim.

    Thawed in cool water, then heated it up with the hair dryer and once I took his hide off of him he went right for it. Didn't seem scared of it at all, just went for a great strike and construction.

    Aaaahhhhh I'm so happy. I love that feeling!

    I'm sitting here yelling to Bryan "He struck it!!" ..... "he's eating it - yay!" .... "come watch him eat!" And he's looking at me like I'm nuts haha. Probably am. Oh well!

    (Seems silly to be so proud of a snake for eating haha)
