    Feliz looks incredible. He is simply stunning.

    Not sure Uncle Al had fun, but he put on a good face .

    Re: Feliz - Venezuelan "Dwarf" BCC

    As promised, post shed Feliz pictures with the DSLR. He didn't particularly want to stay still today in his holding container. However, I got a bonus video with me holding him, and when being held, he's very chill and content.

    He hasn't pooped since day 2, but he had a massive pee that I cleaned today. He weighed in, not completely dry, obviously, at 134G. Today we started gentle bonding/handling. It couldn't have gone better. He's a gem.

    Re: Feliz - Venezuelan "Dwarf" BCC

    Feliz took his third meal with us tonight, a 13g hopper mouse. No more shy Feliz! He was out and about hunting tonight. Mouse went in on tongs, a few seconds later, mouse was wrapped up and coiled by Feliz. I am away tomorrow night, so he got fed, along with everyone else due tomorrow night, tonight, but again, he's eating meals a little smaller than normal for him. I'll bump next Sunday (8 days). I wanted the first three meals to be very manageable.

    Love his demeanor, but I also love his Boa food response. "For me?" BAMMMMM!

    Boas make such great pets, and you gotta love their food response...nothing picky there. Glad he’s doing so well for you. He’s a handsome little devil.

    Hey, you're on a roll tonight! Yeah, boas ARE fun to feed! And so are most rat snakes, & Pituophis...it's just BPs that make you tear your hair out.

    Yeah, 4/4 tonight, all mouse eaters, either for life (Solana and Figment), or for now (Feliz and Yafe). Shayna and Behira are off this week.

    Yeah, sometimes too fun. Last feed I almost got nailed by Behira who decided to sneak her head out and come see what I was up to! All while the rat was two inches from her in the tank on tongs! Figment decided to do the same thing today. Darted half his body out before I had the enclosure door open 20%! Had to entice him back in with the mouse! I'll be keep the hook near by for those two from now on. Figment isn't a big concern, but Behira's curiosity could get ugly!

    I've made my peace with Shayna (BP). She knows when she wants food. I don't worry about it anymore. However, I do love the snakes who eat like clockwork (all my other snakes - hopefully Yafe included now).

    Re: Feliz - Venezuelan "Dwarf" BCC

    Feliz, wow, what a sweetie. He's chill as can be. I've also been working with him every other day and we've been getting to know one another. We've both been very respectful. The other day, I took him out. He was wrapped up and it was clear he didn't feel like exploring and was a little nervous. We had a little "chat." He said, "Dad, I'm a little nervous. I'll tell you what. If you let me stay wrapped up around your fingers and in your hand like this where I feel nice and safe, I'll stay really calm, and there won't be any hysterics or nipping, or hissing, or anything like that, okay? If I feel like exploring, I will, otherwise, I'll just chill here and feel safe, okay?" I said, "Sure Baby. You do whatever makes you feel comfortable. I want you to learn that I am here to protect you and care for you. I will never hurt you or make you uncomfortable on purpose. I'll let you chill for a minute or two, but if you don't start exploring, I'll call it a day and put you back."

    After a few minutes, I put him back and let him be. Today, different snake. He was happy and exploring and calm and curious.

    Re: Feliz - Venezuelan "Dwarf" BCC

    Feliz dropped a "butt bomb" and weighed in at 135G. He is just the chillest, calmest, coolest, baby/juvenile snake I've ever met. He's really awesome.

    I got some pictures and video of our longest bonding session yet. He was ready to rock and roll today. He was like, "Dad, let's play!" as soon as I took him out. He was almost disappointed I put him in his holding container while I cleaned his tank first. Then, when I went to put him back, he did the whole BOA CLIMB! thing and kept shooting straight up and over the tank! I finally, and gently, got him back in. .
