    A perk of adopting from the humane society is that you get a free vet check with participating vets. He went yesterday, and everything looks good! They didn't have probes small enough to sex him, but they said I can bring him back once he's bigger to do that. He gave me some tail buzzing, but he seems to calm down once actually picked up. I imagine it's pretty scary being that small. He was 15 grams, so I think the paper at the humane society probably said 9.3 grams, not 93 grams lol.

    I bet you're right about his weight. And if I was that tiny, I'd buzz my tail too, I guarantee it. Can you imagine being picked up by a giant human? Yikes!

    Re: My first baby snake!

    First poop yesterday! He had a sausage butt after the vet, so I knew it was coming soon. I'm used to my ball python's poops looking like cat poop haha, so I just wanted to check to see if anyone can tell if this looks okay? Sorry about the quality, took the picture after the sun went down and lighting was bad.

    That's exactly what normal "baby snake poo" looks like. It's not as "formed" because his prey is far more digestible.

    Good question, asking is always better than worrying.

    Re: My first baby snake!

    Not sure if anyone will see this tonight, but I thought I might as well ask. I was going to feed him the second pinky, but it looks like the first one is taking up a lot of space already? But again, I don't know what it's supposed to look like. I also accidentally dropped the second one on the floor....Does the five second rule count here? lol. Sorry for all the questions/posts.

    Your beautiful little guy does look nice and full. I tend to be a little cautious about overfeeding so my personal inclination would be to just let him digest the one pinkie and not feed a second.

    I wouldn't worry about dropping a food item on the floor - just rinse and wipe it off.

    Agree exactly ^ ^ ^. He's full with one pink for now. It was hard to advise you without seeing him, & with only your descriptions to go on.

    Snake food dropped on the floor- just rinse it off & don't worry about it.

    He looks to be in good hands now-

    Great, I didn't give him the other one, though he definitely would have eaten it! I'll wait to give him two until he's gotten bigger.
