    Meet Maxine (Max for short-Stranger Things)

    SO I just received my new coastal Carpet Python, Got her from Nick Mutton at Inland reptiles. She arrived (understandably) feisty as all hell. She is beautiful and is in her home for the next few months. I tried uploading a video but it appears I'm unable. Heres a look.

    Beautiful snake...& I love your set-up, I bet she will too! Except, is that a bowl of kibble in the square plastic container? (that's kinda what it looks like, lol)

    Beautiful carpet. Coastals are my favorite. I like your tub setup too. Those perches are great. I like to offer at least two hides when they're young. My older carpets only have one hide though. I hope you really enjoy your new critter. Carpets are awesome!

    Heres a quick Vid: https://youtu.be/hJF4pS2FScQ

    lol, No Thats just's a clump of Sphagnum Moss, I live in the high Desert, Today was a bit warmer, but yesterday it was about 30 degrees, and Humidity probably around 40%.
    She has struck at me twice when Trying to do that vid, so, I'll give her a few days before I bother her again.

    Outstanding!

    What type of coasty is that girl?

    I'm likely going to replace the retic I had to regime here.

    You have a nice looking animal there.

    I'm either going Brisbane, Coastal or Surinam boa.

    Max says hello to everyone. She is definitely living up to the feisty, defensive juvenile carpet python stereotype.

    Re: Meet Maxine (Max for short-Stranger Things)

    Does anyone have any recommendation on getting Maxine to eat. Sheís 8 months old and only weighs 78 grams; she has not been a good eater since hatched. About 5 days ago I took her out of the 35 Liter tub and placed her in a 9 liter tub with sufficient clutter and hides. The temps on warm side is 91 degrees and cool side is 76-80. I do understand during the cooler months some of our snakes wonít eat as much, but she really hasnít eaten much, ever! Iíve tried feeding her 2x last week (small eat fuzzies) with no luck. Today is feeding day I may try a rat pinkie tonight.

    On the flip side my ball python is the same age and is already almost 400 grams.

    Any help is greatly appreciated
