    I love your grandma's idea! I am not a seamstress, but if it helps at all, the snake cozys I have had such great success with are made from a material called 'minky'. I think the circular entrance may just be an embroidery hoop, since those come in a variety of sizes and they are fairly flexible. They look like they'd be pretty easy to make, though friends of mine who are into crafting have mentioned that 'minky' can be challenging to work with since it's so soft/velvety. I've been meaning to post about the snake cozys here. I originally thought they sounded silly, but the nearly unanimous and very enthusiastic response to them by almost all of my snakes has convinced me they are really worth having around for anyone working with nervous snakes or anyone interested in enrichment.

    My Dad said he thinks they're a good idea. Ball pythons like spaces that feel tight around them so a bag would be nice, they could snuggle in and it would be flexible enough to not hurt them.
    He also decided he's gonna call them Ballsacks...so there's that...

    You should definitely suggest them here, they sound like a good idea to me.
    Some girls were horse girls growing up. I was a snake girl.

    Almost done with my DVM! Finally!

    I specialize in rehabilitation and work with local fish and wildlife for rehab/release of native species. For exotics I work with reptile sanctuaries to rehabilitate and rehome to either qualified private owners or humane licensed facilities. I do not believe in fatal population control.
    Please feel free to message me with any questions. I don't know everything but I can point you towards resources.
    Do not message me with images of a snake you killed to identify it. I will ignore you.
