    Two of my faves

    These are two of my favorite snakes to handle. Always eager to come out of their enclosures and never bitey unless there's food involved.

    Thanks brother! The Olive, scrub, and my female bull have been getting a few extra meals since most of the carpets aren't eating very much during the winter. The Coastal has only eaten twice since early November and that's where those missed meals have gone since the Olive's cage is right on top of his.

    The weather is getting warmer so your new carpet should be home soon! Waiting is tough though.

    Great pics Ziggy, they look great!

    I love seeing updates on your Olive because it gives me an idea of to expect with mine in a year.

    Would you say that the rate of growth is more so/faster with your Olive over the Caroets?
    The one thing I found that you can count on about Balls is that they are consistent about their inconsistentcy.

    Thanks Reinz! I'd say the Olive is growing just a little bit faster than the carpets. He was hatched in early July 2016 so he'll be 4 in a few months. My 2014 & 2015 carpets aren't as long as the Olive but they're close to the same girth. They're all on pretty similar feeding schedules. They usually eat a large or jumbo rat every 2-3 weeks on average and maybe a tad less frequently during the winter.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I feel like my girl is growing at a faster rate than my Carpets did. She’s almost 2.5 years and just now moving into medium rats.
