    Awesome critter mate. I've always found them intriguing and I'm very interested in watching his progression. Please keep us posted. I may have to move those WLPs up on my potential next critter list.

    I've wanted one for a while now. I have three ball pythons and a KSB. Wanted to step it up a bit. (I'm also on a wait-list for a BRB, but I may save my spot for another year.)

    I'm not sure exactly how old he is, but was told he was captive hatched. Seller estimated him to be between 1-2 years of age, and approximately 2 - 2.5 feet in length.

    It's been a week, but he isn't too keen on me checking in on him (I accept that this may never change). I offered a small f/t rat pup last night while he was hiding away. He got scared, made a few little noises, then thrashed about before giving it one defensive strike. I left it in with him overnight and it was still there this morning.

    I'll definitely post updates on his progression. Hopefully he starts eating for me soon.

    Thank you for sharing the link

    Definitely skittish. I heard it's typical for juveniles to be this way, and that they can mellow out with age.. I hope to work with him once he starts eating for me consistently.

    Hang in there. They all eat eventually . I've heard they cough up for balls. Is that true?

    They do. A couple days or so after eating. I think the regularity of this happening varies, but it's common.

    Re: White-lipped python

    Just an update (I posted this picture in another thread already, but I'll get new ones once he settles more):

    Now that a week has passed since I got him, it seems like he's finally acclimating. I went to check on him last night, and he was perched up in his tree. He didn't bolt when he saw me, either.

    Just for the hell of it, I offered him a f/t rat pup (scented with a chick) with tongs. He struck it numerous times, but didn't take it. I figured these were defensive strikes, so I left it in there with him while he did his own thing. It was still there this morning. I'm going to give him more time before offering again.

    He did go to the bathroom last night and his stool was fairly small. Urates had a green tinge to them as well. I'm assuming stomach bile from not eating, combined with stress.

    Because he was captive hatched and imported, I'd like to get a fecal done for him. I want to handle him as little as possible until he starts eating, but moving forward, I'll be weighing him regularly. I also lowered the temperatures a tad as suggested.

    I'm still doing more research as I go. I have a 4'2'17" PVC ordered that will hopefully be coming in within the next couple months. Fingers crossed.
