    Cohabiting pythons is one of those things that sounds really great and interesting in theory, but in reality just doesn’t risk well.

    someone may have already said this, but snakes don't get emotionally attacked to anything - ever. They are not social animals, they don't have a well developed reasoning system in their brains. They learn that person caring for them = not predator, not danger. Mine has "learned" that food appears at a certain spot in the cage and waits there, that's about it.
    No cage is too large - nature is the best template - a snoot can't be booped too much

    And that's about as complicated as it gets for me also. Go to my seat at the table and wait for food.
