He was slithering all around her, but after about 5 minutes, she said he squeezed and lunged - not striked. He's historically done that when he starts to get uncomfortable from breathing and starts faintly popping. I didn't see it however, because my back was turned, but it made her nervous. I took him and he was okay with me for 30 seconds until I got him back in his tank, where he happily climbed all around. I also listened to his breathing and it sounded fine.

    Not 100% sure what happened, but he might have been telling her either, more support please, or that's enough handling. I am still building up his handling tolerance.


    2. He nailed another rat pup last night.

    He's a weirdo though. He, fairly frequently, will strike and coil, and then drop the prey. 1/2 the time he does this, he seems to forget about it, and I have to re-offer. The 2nd time, he nailed it again, and it was down the hatch quick.

    He had dropped the prey on his hide from his front perch, and it rolled off into the corner. He was waiting patiently on his perch begging for me to re-offer.

    I am just exceptionally happy that he is eating consistently (rats at that), growing, shedding, and breathing!

    He's doing great and really is a success story. I couldn't be happier. Katie too. She held him the other day and was amazed at his color and size (easily over 200G now).
    That's good news Dave , as you say probably needed a little more support from your friend. You now what amount of support he needs as you handle him the most
    I hate it when they drop there food after striking in the most stupid place, trying to get it back is a nightmare, even worse when they have it tight in the coils and can't get it out to offer, lol

    Yafe looks amazing! He's getting so rich colored and is getting used to handling as well. Not that he was ever aggressive, but he's definitely getting more chill.

    He weighed in today, dry, at 215G!!!!!! 2X the weight when I got him!

    I swear some snakes just want to make sure we feel "needed", lol. Or maybe to see if we know how to "fetch"?
