    The New Crew

    The 3 new additions are all doing well. I couldn't be happier with my choices even though the scrub is a bit fiesty at times.




    He is strictly business when it comes to food.



    Finally felt a little bit of that boa power at feeding time tonight. He hit his food harder than ever. It's only been 10 days.



    I'm so excited to see this girl color up as she grows.

    El-Ziggy,

    Everyone looks great!

    How's the BO treating you these days?

    The motley hit hard, huh? You don't say!

    Behira, now over 1,100G and probably 4 1/2 feet, is actually starting to calm down a bit, I think. She hasn't hit the doors the last two feedings and seems gentler when hitting the rats then she used too. Maybe she knows they are F/T now and won't fight back? Maybe I am just used to it and it doesn't scare me as much?

    She's on a 3 week feeding schedule now. Do not mistake quickness to strike with force of strike. She's on the rat pretty quick!

    Really excited to watch them all grow with you! The Boas will take a lot of time to get to size, but that gives you a lot of bonding time until they are big.

    On a side note, if you want to talk about a freak when eating, talk about Figment, my adult corn snake. He, ummm, unlike Behira, makes sure it's food first, but once he does, BAMMMMMM! He usually nails and wraps up in a 1/2 a second. He hits hard and does not mess around. His MO is usually to hit the mouse, wrap it, and then keep coiling and rolling all across his 3FT cage. He goes APE for food. Again, calm until he's 100% sure, but once he knows it's a mouse, forget about it!

    Re: The New Crew

    I realized the other day that as much as I love my scrub python I don't enjoy handling him as much as I do my other snakes. Taking him out is more of a challenge. Let's see if we can tame the savage beast today is usually my attitude . It's not a bad thing and even though I hope this changes it's no biggie if it doesn't. I love his ferocity. He's just always fired up and doesn't really allow me to relax. If anything he heightens my senses and keeps me in a more alert state. My other snakes, especially the slower moving boas have a more calming/soothing effect on me. The bulls, carpets, and olive are all fairly active but I'm not worried about any of them tagging or pooping on me.

    I have to keep my guard up at all times with Mr. Klauss.





    This fella just hung out with me while I watched some footage this weekend.

    Your collection has filled out nicely Ziggy. Iím really looking forward to this new crew fill out into adults. In the meantime Iíll enjoy the transformation.
    The one thing I found that you can count on about Balls is that they are consistent about their inconsistentcy.

    Beautiful snakes man. Show some of the carpets too! That scrub python is truly something else.

    Has your BCO settled at all? My girl is still SO sassy.
    Too Many...

    That's what my wife says
