    I miss the early days with Wallace. I wish had some Jewel branch pictures. She came around rapidly after I started using a branch to handle her.
    Most of the time she’s on her perch and I just pull the whole thing out of the tub and let her do what she wants. Tonight was actually the first couple bites she’s landed in a while.

    She gets better looking every time you share pics. She's absolutely smoking after shedding!!!

    How often are you handling her? For about how long?

    Thanks man! She really is getting better with every shed.

    Handling maybe a few times a week, for at least 5min at a time. Longer if she’s being relaxed.

    Spot cleaning her tub earlier and she poked her head out of a hide very inquisitively, not defensive. Handled for a little bit and she was pretty well behaved. I think she’s just going to be a bit nervous until she gets more size.

    Last few handling sessions with this critter have been splendid. Hasn’t even squared up on me in strike posture in a while now

    Great news JM!

    I’d trust any of my Carpets with anybody.
    The one thing I found that you can count on about Balls is that they are consistent about their inconsistentcy.

    Mack The Knife, 2013
    Lizzy, 2010

    0.1 Normal Ball Python, Elvira, 2001
    0.1 Olive (Aussie) Python, Olivia, 2017

    Please excuse the spelling in my posts. Auto-Correct is my worst enema.

    Sweeeeet!!! That's awesome man. I can only speak for my limited experience with Fernie, but once she "turned the corner" she never looked back. She's been sweet as can be since. Hopefully you have the same luck.

    Hitting a home run brother! As stated, once you hit the point where they no longer fear you, its a done deal. You are on the fast track to really enjoying the species.

    Last night I had another friend out.



    She's the best and most "social" handling snake I have.

    Something about those Aussie snakes!!!!!!!!!!

    Your's looks fricking awesome to boot!
