    Thereís always money in the banana stand- meet Buster!

    Hi everyone! Iím a bit late on posting my first ball python as shortly after I got him I broke my leg (2020 am right?) so hereís a little thread of 2 months of ownership

    Day 1: right out of his deli container from the expo. Not sure how old he was but still a little guy



    Deciding he wants to be a tree python while settling in


    His first handling session after eating 3 meals


    And then finally me getting to handle him 2 months after I got him this weekend.


    Heís such a good boy, eats well and is super curious but gentle. Hasnít even balled up on us let alone done anything defensive. Heís starting to get some size to him and Iím really excited to have him. Iíve been interested in snakes since I was little but never took the plunge so to commit to it feels good. Iíll be sure to post more as I can!

    And now an evening surprise! He shed for the first time since we've had him today. I did think he was looking a bit dull but hadn't caught him in blue so couldn't know for sure plus he still ate his rat on Friday night with no concerns. Got 99% of it off in one piece, just a little stuck on his tail so that's definitely good news as well and we'll get that off. Pleased with his progress so far and definitely way less nervous than I was jumping in.

    My banana BP did the same thing when he first moved in, climbed over everything for several minutes until he found where the hides were.

    See he knows where his hides are..all three of them and 4 if we count digging under his water bowl but for some reason he still just loves to climb up on these vines. He'll even take food from them. It is what it is I guess lol

    Overall though he's adjusted really well and I'm so happy because despite the 100's of hours of reading I did on husbandry I was still afraid that something would somehow be horribly wrong haha
