    Re: My first baby snake!

    It finally happened - he tried to eat me! He's usually pretty chill once he's in my hands, but I had put him down to weigh him. I think my hands moving around above him may have triggered food mode. He's only gained 5 or 6 grams (which is what the vet predicted he should be gaining at his size - a couple grams a month), so I don't think he's quite at two pinkies yet, but possibly soon!

    Anyway, Saturday was my fourth cleaning and mite treatment of his cage, and today I saw no mites when changing his paper towels! Hopefully this means it is coming to an end.

    Also, not sure if I mentioned before, but I'm calling him Leviathan.

    Tell him he can't have YOUR "pinkies"- he has to wait for his own! It's not unusual for our hands to confuse or scare a little snake- I think I'd forget & forgive, lol.

    Hope it's the last of his mites, too.

    Nearly all the King snakes I’ve had over the years have been ‘bitey’ whilst in the viv but they’re were all ‘where’s the food’ nips

    Everyone was perfect once they were out of the viv
