    Yes, I get so puzzled sometimes. Very well could be shed coming, I haven't seen it yet but she is probably due for one.

    Watch & see, maybe in a week she'll cloud up if that's it? Some of mine will eat in shed, others don't.

    Hereís the culprit..

    THAT innocent-looking little serpent did THAT? Yes, king snakes DO "know how to eat".

    They can be deceptive
    My scariest snake ever was about 15Ē long

    A stunning Bamboo Rat snake .

    This little swine bit me nearly every time I changed his water or moved him to do a viv clean .

    He had the sharpest little razor teeth that used to really hurt .. LoL

    I was literally a nervous wreck when I was sliding his glass door open ... he had loads of bark pieces as hides and I never knew where he was gonna come from ..

    At feeding time I opened the glass carefully then FLUNG the mouse in and slammed the door closed again

    Here he is ..

    So pretty, and sounds like a real "joy" to keep! .... Was his name "Slash" by any chance?

    I have to admit that at times, I've been guilty of "eating in front of my snakes" but never have any of them tried to take my food! That's truly hilarious.

    Personal funny reptile moments

    Sooooo years ago we ( me my son and his girlfriend ) had three young albino garter snakes ( sisters ) out of their viv on the carpet ..

    They were small , friendly and gorgeous.

    Anyways in a blink of an eye one of them went to our dogís food dish and grabbed a chunk of dog food that was about four times the size of itís head ... and proceeded to eat it slowly

    I hope the dog wasn't around? If that was MY dogs food bowls- they'd not take it "lying down"- they'd be freaked out, lol.
