    Re: New to site: this is my first girl.

    Well I had her out for a while just getting her more used to being held. She was curled up on my chest as I was watching a movie. All the sudden she started moving and stretched out. I thought she was just getting restless or moving to get more comfortable. .............. Nope. ............ She pooped. A massive poop. ..... On me. ....... It just kept coming and coming out.

    So good news, she had her first poop

    I am now slightly mortified. My clothes and a blanket are now in the washing machine and I got a shower. I just hope she doesn't make a habit of this.

    Anyway I thought I'd share since you all are probably the only ones that will get a kick out if the story.

    She has eat multiple meals and I swear gotten bigger already.

    Fighting the urge hard not to get 50 more lol. There are so many beautiful morphs out there. I did not even know. I have banned myself from morph market for at least a year.
    Will not get another one until I have had her at least one year to make sure that I know I want multiple BPs.

    It sounds like all is going great with your new addition Daniel. If you think BPs are fun you should try boas or carpets. 😀

    Been there, done that. The activity + your warmth sure helped. So from now on, when you want to handle, keep in mind just where she is in her digestion, & have a glance at her tail: if it appears a little puffy or bloated above the cloaca, you might not want to cuddle up or wear your best clothes, lol. Unfortunately snakes can be quite stealthy about when they're about to do this- but if they're laying flat & you see the tail raise slightly, RUN! (-for a bag or a drop-cloth, hahahaha!)

    Mine was an adult rosy boa...a very innocent-looking* snake, if ever there was one. (*along with BPs of course) It was winter & my snake crawled into my shirt to snuggle, which I thought was pretty cute until I felt this massive cascade of semi-liquid warmth down my back, inside my shirt! So don't feel bad, it's nothing personal...we humans can be very "inspiring" for our pet snakes.

    I'm glad I'm not suffering alone lol.

    A Boa. That sounds like it would be a bigger mess than what mine did lol.

    No, rosy boas are small desert-dwellers- not over 36-40" long & about 1.5" diameter. But it was more than enough "sharing"...

    Just like the saying: Some days you're the pigeon, & some days you're the statue.

    Re: New to site: this is my first girl.

    This new boy I got is super active compared to my white girl LOL
    He is all over the place and has his head up stretching all over when I have him out. Cleo is happy to find a warm spot and just sit there for an hour.
    This is from when I first got him (in the parking lot at fedex). I need to get some new pics if he will hold still long enough.

    Just don't let him drive until he has a learner's permit. Curious snakes are really cute!
