His scales are so weird that when he gets tangled, it damages them. They look like ruffled feathers or something...super strange. Fun fact, he just clocked in at 6 ft tonight!

    That is completely understandable. Luckily, he might be the tamest scrub on the planet and I have zero fear that he will bite me. As long as I am respectful, of course. When he doesn’t want to be messed with, he reminds me who’s boss and I leave him be It’s a fair trade, since he lets me manhandle and badger the living hell out of him 90% of the time.

    I'm with you on this one W. Slytherin is a bit more daring and trusting than I am when it comes to letting a scrub near her face and she's a lot prettier than me . I'm just not there yet and I'm not sure I ever will be. Every time my guy gets too close I have to redirect him.

    I cant do this anymore.

    She switched to quail just fine, right after her shed. It's kind of hard to see but shes yawning (or whatever it is) in the first picture

    Decided it was time to give her enclosure a cleaning and weigh her, so I know the food size is right. She is 1040g.



    Then I learned a very valuable lesson: you need a lot of space to handle a wild scrub python, because when it wants to get away, it will get away, faster than the speed of light.

    Yeah, trying to weigh your scrub is a waste of time. I see you learned your lesson though. Just by looking at her I'd feed her mostly medium rats but she can easily eat a large rat. My male is about the same size.

    Well the weighing went fine, it was afterwards when I was trying to handle that it became an issue. But yea, I was literally about to send you a message and asking what you recommend. I was thinking of maybe trying a medium rat + quail combo to see if she would take rat. She has been eating two quail weekly. I also have large quail on the way.

    She still won't eat rats eh? Chain feeding a rat after a small quail might work. I'd thaw them together and hopefully the scenting will entice her to take the rodent. How much do the quail weigh?
