    Crowley decided he wants to be a tree python now. I fed him last night and he decided to go bask under his heat lamp in his bamboo for about 6 hours (I went to bed before him so could of been longer). I always tell him he needs to rest and not climb all around his tank after eating, like he'd ever listen, that's not how snakes work but he took it easy in his branches and stayed in one spot, just readjusting slightly every once in a while. He does have a hide at 90 degrees so he could of went there to warm up if he wanted but he chose the bamboo, he did look very comfy though.

    The rats I ordered from a new place last time and they came in half the size of what I'd normally get him, so eating small rats might be why he goes climbing after eating sometimes. Hopefully next time they get my order right and get proper sized rats for my little guy, with these rats I can feed him every 5-7 days whereas the bigger rats was every 10 days. I wonder, should I feed him 2 rats in a row? I've never done that and I'm not sure if he'd take a 2nd rat or am I better off just feeding more often like I have been?

    Well here is a picture of Crowley hanging out in his bamboo after eating

    Here are Crowley's events from last night. He decided to pose all cute for the camera, this picture is just so cute other than it being a little dark, I don't like blinding him with the flash and I keep the lights dim for him as he is nocturnal and I don't want to confuse him by making it bright.



    My husband was showing Crowley his buddy Plush Crowley and he gave him a boop on the forehead.


    I went to get a drink and when I came back, I always open the door slowly, he was right at the door, I squeezed my way in and put my drink down, then grabbed the camera because the cute little guy found his escape route, I let him explore right outside his door before I put him back in the room.


    Also, during last night, my husband gave Crowley a nice little massage and that got him to pee right away, if Crowley could of said thanks he probably would of. It was an easy mess to clean up, I had to wash his heated blanket but it was due for a wash anyway. Normally I tend to wash things then he pees on it right after cleaning but not this time, glad I waited a bit to wash that blanket.

    Here is a little short video of Crowley enjoying a massage then asking you all to boop the snoot. Since I was holding the camera I could only massage him with one hand but you can see him mushing onto my arm because he is enjoying the massage. Once I turned the camera off he was back to a 2 handed massage and he loved it. He even got the 4 handed massage last night as my husband was there too and he absolutely loves that, not sure why but my husbands massages get him really in the mood for more. He'll wrap his head around your hand and hold tight just so you can massage him harder. We don't squeeze him or anything and only massage so hard as we don't want to hurt the little guy even though he asks for the deep tissue massage.

    Found Crowley like this, this morning, he thinks he's hiding. Glad he is in his warm side because I will be trying to feed him 2 rats for the first time in his life tonight. The batch of rats I got were a lot smaller than expected and are half the size of what I normally fed him (switched where I buy from), so I figured might as well try giving him 2 rats. He's eating those little rats every 5-7 days, so I want to try giving 2 and go back to feeding every 9-10 days.

    Here is Crowley sleeping peacefully, thinking he's hiding just fine.



    And an overhead shot


    I got to wake up this morning to go "aww" because that is just so cute when he does this.

    Well, I just offered Crowley 2 rats for the first time in his life. He gladly ate the first one but had no interest in the second one at all. I guess till my batch of smaller rats are gone, he will just be eating more often, which is fine by me. If he could talk he probably would of said "wtf mommy I already ate, why you shoving another rat in my face? I'm full!"

    Here is Crowley picking out his next meal on his "menu".


    As some of you may know, I also have a macaw. I put the macaw poster and cockatiel poster I have in his room so he can look at the birds. He's so cute looking at the poster it's like he's picking his next meal on a menu. Of course he only eats frozen thawed rats and not exotic chicken but hey let the snake dream.

    Oh you're such a TEASE! Talk about a "bait & switch",

    (BTW, some snakes will just only eat one item, no matter what size, & I guess you have "one of those". Silly sneks...)
