Font picking is hard…
They behaved like school children. They were intentionally hurtful and overly sensitive, rather than dealing with a conflicting opinion like adults.
Some of the people in the reptile community really disappointed me today.
I would expect better of you. Immediate unfollow from me.
Grow up girls, Honestly.
I’m thinking I’m going to need a FAQ soon :) What a good excuse to write one!
The easiest way to handle them is to hook them out of the enclosure and just do your thing, if you are afraid of getting bitten, the best thing to do is to get bitten lots. The first bite always still makes me jump a little, but after that one you’re fine because you remember it doesn’t hurt.
Taming an angry snake is a fine balance between handling enough to make it tolerate you, but not so much that it becomes an unpleasant experience. I generally handle each of my snappy babies (I.E Dax and Anastasia) 3-5 minutes each night to work on taking them down. However it is a long process that you have to be patient with :)
I don’t keep all of my animals in tubs, just the young ones and recently Kana who was upgraded to a big girl tank but hasn’t been eating so is back in the tub.
I keep them in the tubs because it is the best thing for hatchling snakes. They are small, vulnerable and large spaces often make them go off their food because of that.
Tubs are great:
They’re opaque so the snake feels secure and hidden at all times.
They’re super easy to maintain stable temperatures in.
They’re hygienic because the cleaning is so easy.
Monitoring and managing humidity is simple! It makes sure our fragile little babies have good sheds, every shed.
They’re safe and the risk of escape is low (Finding a missing adult is far easier than a 20cm hatchling!)
In general they are just a much more stable environment for the little babies… People do keep adults in tubs as well and that is all dependant on the species and what is best for individual animals. If my Kana won’t eat in her adult cage, she can stay in her tub forever. Snakes don’t know the difference between timber, plastic and glass. They just know if they feel secure or not!
Tubs are good, we like tubs.
Holy moly! I have… So many… I posted it a while ago, I’ll find it and reblog it with any additions.
Top 3: Please note that I am a practical and boring person when it comes to pet ownership and I will be so completely dull.
1) A Blue Merle Heterochromatic Australian Shepherd.
2) A Bull Terrier, any Bully will do!
3) An Eyelash Viper.
I just really miss having a dog in my life, especially lately. So on the provision I had a place on property and I didn’t work so much… That would be what I want!
Of course I would love a big cat or a giraffe or something but I wouldn’t want people to follow my example and get hurt. So pups and snakes will do it for me :)
Hey there! My pair are Eastern Shinglebacks (Tiliqua Rugosa Asper).
Aww thank you Love! I’m dozing on the lounge watching Community and drooling.
As I can speak from experience, not all petstores are the spawn of satan! It sounds like you’re doing all the right things :) How pretty! I’m so jealous, I would love a ball python… I would kill a man for one!
Sounds like an excellent, thorough and responsible breeder! That’s really good to hear, there aren’t many of those left! What morph are you thinking? You don’t have to be anon :)
It sounds like you have a god plan going so far! Definitely consult your new book before you buy your scaly friend and test your enclosure thoroughly before purchasing! :)
My boyfriend has been playing WOW for 12 hours… Now normally I am okay with that but my car is dead and I can’t go and get myself dinner :( There is no sign of him getting up. I’m being starved for 45K of imaginary dollars…
