    Baby albino pythons

    At the risk of sounding judgemental, I think youíre better off getting comfortable with handling and interacting with your current new hatchling burm and getting your new blood python feeding first. There will always be time to add critters after youíre better established with your current snakes.

    Re: Baby albino pythons

    my baby burmese is now completely tame. he is so sweet now with me. as we speak he just got through shedding and is now ready to eat. my question would be is being around 18 inches long and girth about the size of my thumb will he be able to eat a small frozen rat or do i need to keep feeding him an adult mouse.

    Re: Baby albino pythons

    With all due respect brother, you need to know this stuff before getting something like a Burm. This is elementary care. You should be reading non-stop with the animals you've acquired already and the questions you're asking. I think you're well intentioned but your eyes are bigger than your stomach. Learn THEN acquire, not vice versa.

    Food item should be just slightly larger than his girth, and you want to get him on rats ideally if they're of the correct size. Burms can and will get hooked on mice if they stay on them long enough.

    Im glad your enjoying your snakes but I will not suggest anymore for you. Man to man you couldnít handle your Burm hatchling 1 week ago because he wanted to burrow and you didnít know what to do. Now 5 days later you say he is completely tamed when he spent the last week shedding. You havenít even gotten to work with him for 5 days strait. As honest and interested as you sound, and as eager as you are to learn, you Do Not need another snake that will be 15-18 feet until you completely learn how to care for the ones you have in the years to come. Iíd love for you to start a progression thread for your burm so we can all watch him grow. But please slow down. It seems to me your getting in way over your head. When your asking how & when to handle and how to feed then your a beginner whether you had snakes before or not.
    Get a Progression Threads going for your snakes you have now with pics and info about their age and size. Hang out here and interact with everyone... and enjoy what you have.

    Another question I have answered in the Burmese Python 101 write up. Ive tried to help the best I can and sent you 4 pages on how to care for your Hatchling. I donít understand why your not reading the heck out of it for basic care knowledge.

    Iíll add I always kept boas, just about any local I could get my hands on. Even had some BRBís and dumerils. I considered myself a boa guy. 13 years ago I got hurt bad. Had a pair of beautiful dumerils, they were adults. Like I said I got hurt bad. For a good couple years I couldnít keep. When I got back in of course I wanted bigger snakes. But due to health issues, I got a little group of balls. My mini boids, I can keep them without having to inconvenience anyone for my hobby, even though my wife is a big fan and always willing to help and handle. Just a little story. When I jumped back in I got six, that might have been two to many. Lmao, Go slow, enjoy the ride.

    This is good advice here. I learned a lot from the pros in this forum.

    Everyone else..... don't judge me. I am not an addict. Just have 10 snakes. Everything from corns to retics. Perform educational shows to help others learn and get over their fears. Have Morphmarket up every morning before work. Planning custom built bio active cages. LMAO..... not addicted at all...… On a serous note.... I really progressed much quicker than I should have. No regrets though.

    I still ask questions and learn a lot form everyone here. I consider the different ways we all do things... but I wish people starting out again or for the first time would slow down for the animals sake. I think sometimes (myself included) we get so excited we have to ďCheckĒ ourselves for the animals sake. Caring for these gorgeous creatures especially the Giant Retics and Burms that will grow anywhere from 12í to 20í is not a one man job. I myself thought about the years ahead this last time I made a purchase, what my plans are and the possibilities I could have a harder time 20 years from now caring for a large snake. As much as I hate to admit it I will be starting the road to being a Retired Elder by then hahahaha. Im hoping Im healthy and feeling good still but these are all real facts we should all consider when purchasing Pets with such a long life span that are hard to rehome and that not just anyone can care for....
