    Great episode Brian! ... Since I'm your friend, I just wanted to make sure you knew that if you're ever buying snakes and run out of room I'd be happy to help you out ... I'm good like that!

    More Mojave Spinner! It looked soooo clean ... love it!

    Re: SnakeBytesTV-Too many snakes???

    Brian~ Great episode!! I do have a question/comment though.

    In the segment "Ask the Breeder" you discussed feeding in the cage vs. in a feeding tub. You mentioned that it was not a bad idea for people with just a few snakes to feed in a separate tub so the snake does not think of the keeper as food.

    I disagree with this and would ask that you look to your own collection as proof of this not happening. You feed all of your snakes in their own containers, and I don't get the impression that any of the snakes held on any sort of regular basis perceive the keeper as food. Is this true?

    In my limited experience, and having only 13 ball pythons and 3 boas, I feed all of them in their own environments and have never had a snake mistake me for their prey item on non-feeding days. Of course, I don't smell like a rodent on non-feeding days and so this might have something to do with that!

    So, I wonder if you really believe that feeding a snake in their own enclosure leads to the snake perceiving the keepers hand as prey-- on non-feeding days and when the keeper has no rodent smell on them...?

    Thanks for taking the time to read this... I'm not a morning person so I hope that this is coherent enough!

    Take care, McKinsey

    I do agree with you for the most part. I don't think that our snakes look us as food, but I do think in our facility when the cage opens the first thing that our animals think is they are getting fed. More often that not when the cage opens food is introduced. So it's more of a stimulus response then them viewing us as food. One of the things that sucks about doing vids like this is you don't always articulate your point the way that you mean to. I'm sorry if it came off the wrong way and in looking back at it now I see your point. Darn videos Thanks, Brian(BHB)

    Nice pickups, Brian!

    I don't always comment in these threads, but I _always_ enjoy SnakeBytes! (Chewy has made me LOL with enthusiasm over the last few weeks - he's a really good sport!)

    Weekends, I host birthday parties and do guided tours at the local public aquarium. A few weeks ago, I listened to myself talking and heard something different about my speech patterns. It took a moment to sort out what was going on - I'd picked up some of your contagious enthusiasm, and it was filtering out as I spoke; some of your cadences had entered my voice!

    Thanks for all you do!

    Perhaps you could run a 'Fact or Fiction' on this using snakes that are handled and have not been conditioned to 'open tub- receive food'??

    Here on this forum we have a lot of beginner snake keepers who have been told to feed outside of the enclosure for the reason you suggest. Many members here are quick to point out that they feel moving the snake to a different enclosure, and then back again, actually increases snakey stress and increases the likelihood of the keeper getting tagged.

    Oh Chewy.....

    Agreed.

    Muahaha.
