    Drogon already ate his first meal with me! A f/t fuzzy. It's only been 3 days since his arrival.
    My trust in drymarchon appetite did not fail. LOL

    He's in shed already! I also tossed him a small pinky and he ate that too again.
    Just another photo dump and that'll be it for a month unless there's been some special news or change. He handled well, even in shed. Can't wait to work with him and see what he's like out of shed and accustomed to handling. These photos are straight off my iphone and unedited. He's so very shiny and stocky in build!

    And random, but I had someone argue with me that snakes are "partially domesticated like cats". It was a riot.

    That is one INCREDIBLE & stunning serpent, congratulations! (I don't think I'll envy your clean-up chores though, lol.)

    (I'm late- just getting around to this thread, been really busy the last couple days, just got a new roof put on my house & other time-consuming distractions.)

    thanks! Lol just think of it as cleaning up after a large dog when they're adults. I'm planning on using small animal litter as substrate when he's older, to hopefully help with keeping things easy.

    Well it's not just the size but the activity level of the snake, if you get my drift? (at least that's what I've heard)

    I was just thinking how cool black snakes like Drogon look when in blue & their eyes are opalescent, like in your photo...

    You mean pooping right? Or something else? LOL. For pooping, I was just thinking it's like a large dog- daily piles of poops to clean. Still better than horses!

    I agree, they look super cool! So I took a bunch of pictures of him in shed

    I meant they are very messy, not only in terms of amount & frequency but because they are very active snakes in enclosures, so you might find yourself doing more
    than just a quick pick up...it might be on the walls. That's what I heard from someone who kept these & what I can surmise- I once had a another kind of snake for a
    while with very similar characteristics. They ARE gorgeous & impressive, but this is not jealousy, I can assure you. Hopefully your substrate will help. Diapers would
    be ideal though... If anyone can figure out how to make this a better experience, I believe that you can. Maybe I should have kept silent, but it's not my strong suit.

    I see Indigos regularly where I hunt. Like you said, they are endangered but also further protected on the land I hunt. They are thriving there.

    Red, I have to say I rather muck horse poop then dog or snake poop any day

    I do it all daily, too. Well the horses and dogs anyway.

    Horse poop doesn't stink even nearly as bad as any animal that eats meat. Plus you have the muck fork and don't have to get even close to the poop..LOL

    Dog poop...ewww. Nasty smelling. Smaller popper scopper. Not my favorite thing to do.

    Snake poop. Fairly ew. Depends on the snake. But never fun. Have to get pretty close to it..despite rubber gloves

    Horse is definitely the easiest. Just saying..LOL
