    That's odd about some water leaking from his face...maybe he drank water shortly before you picked him up?

    How long is Dakota? Here I'll admit I haven't measured my spot. python in a long while, so I can only estimate she's about 3.5-4' long, but the largest she eats are
    small mice/hoppers. I'm surprised at the size prey that your guy is taking, as I think they're similar size (your snake & mine).

    I thought the drool was kind of weird, too.

    I havenít tried to measure him, but Iím guessing about three feet or a little better based on him cruising around in a 2í long quarantine cage. The adult mice seem about the right size in my opinion, though the guy who previously had him was feeding small rats. The mice are the same size as those I feed my adult corn and Solomon Island ground boa. If he acts ravenous after a mouse or two, I might try the weanling rats some of my juvenile bps are on. Theyíre only slightly larger/longer than the adult mice. Iím planning to feed every two weeks like I do the majority of my adult snakes. Heís appears to be in good body shape, but maybe a bit chunky...his scales do appropriately overlap though.

    i agree with you on the smaller or right size prey and not over sizing.

    I odten play with my sizes until I find one that seems to suit the snake best

    I know it was someone's name but unfortunately it's a real source of confusion...and virtually no snake is a child's toy.

    Great looking critter! Congrats on the handsome new addition! I'm a big fan of Aussie snakes too. Judging from the size of him I'd feed him small rats and even a medium rat on occasion. A weaned rat would be the smallest meal I'd offer. Hope to see many more pics as he grows.

    Nice looking snake. Glad s/heís working out for you.
    The one thing I found that you can count on about Balls is that they are consistent about their inconsistentcy.
