Snappy is a snake that my brother-in-law rescued from the neighbors place. They both believed that Snappy was a Tiger snake and the neighbor wanted to kill poor little Snappy, but my brother-in-law has a love for animals of all kinds and convinced him not to do it. The next day I had a look at Snappy and informed him that Snappy is a harmless little Carpet Python :D

If you wish to see some Youtube footage of Snappy being released, follow the link below :)

Awww, such a cute little Snappy :) Haha

I have my Mimi <3 She's adorable ... Not eating for me right now though :( I'm a little worried about her ... She's so tiny ...

Bluerain 03-18-2012 05:42 AM

Could just be after the winter kind of thing. How tiny and old is she?..iv bin away a while??
Im guessing you will have tried all the usual tricks, like heating her prey up with a hairdryer to make it nice and toasty, offering slightly smaller prey, braining, slitting nose of prey. Let us know how she"s going ;-)

She's about six months old and she's teeny teeny tiny ... It's unreal how itty bitty she is xD Lol

She's eating pinkies ... since they are pinkies, I'm feeding her live. But she has no interest in them. She ate three of them the first time I fed her, then ... nothing :(

Bluerain 03-18-2012 05:29 PM

Now that really is strange..i always find that when any of mine go off a few live feeds always kick-start them right back into feeding again!
I guess the only thing to do is to keep offering from time to time, and just see how she goes...good luck hun ;-)

Thanks! Yeah it is really strange ... They said she was an aggressive feeder ... They said it was the only time she was aggressive :P I have yet to see it!!

That's a beautiful carpet.

Roy 03-20-2012 05:06 AM

Yes, Snappy is a very beautiful Carpet. I wish I could have kept her but law over forbids us to keep any native wildlife. I think she would have been unhappy in captivity anyway.

How long have you had your Mimi Snuffles? Is she settling in to a new environment?

WiccanWolf88 03-20-2012 05:28 AM

It amazes me how long they are laying out, but so small looking all curled yup. cutie! Go Snappy!

lovesnuffles 03-20-2012 01:52 PM

I've had Mimi for about two months now. She's settled in well. Loves her cage, she's always exploring and climbing around ((FINALLY ... I gave her a new tree to climb on and she never used it. She stayed curled up in the bottom corner, now she's getting active lmao!)). She's very sweet and handleable. Not nippy at all like babies tend to be ...

Snappy is seriously the most beautiful wild caught snake I've seen so far :O

Roy 03-23-2012 07:50 AM

Mimi sounds like a healthy snake, maybe still settling in to her new surroundings and coming out of a semi-hibernation from winter. I hope that she eats for you soon ;)

Yes, Snappy has some beautiful colouring. So many beautiful wild snakes around here that I would love to keep but can't.

Yeah, she stayed curled up inside her hide box most of the time she was with me. She didn't like captivity.

lovesnuffles 03-23-2012 12:58 PM

Lol, that ****s ... Pretty sure we're allowed to keep any wild caught reptiles around here, but we need permits for the venomous ones ...

WiccanWolf88 03-23-2012 06:04 PM

The only place around here where we can get venomous ones are if we go to the swamps on the Reservation...other than that, we don't have any here in NY.
Just your usual grass/garden/corn/milk...harmless ones.
