lol He's a kenyan sand boa. They normally only get 3-4 feet as adults. And hes camera shy, i can never get a pic of him without him burying his face into my fingers. The camera did good justice on his colors on this one, hes a yellow-ish orange i suppose heh. Heres his feeding vid i just made today

He's one awesome looking little dude. He's YELLOW! .... That trips me out :/ Never seen a yellow one before :P

Poor mousy. I don't think it even felt that bite, did it? :P

TylerAlmighty 11-12-2009 11:32 PM

I dont think so either, i think the mouse was more like "wtf?" about it at first lol. His first live pinky he struck it fast and double coiled it, but he might have been nervouse becaus he just shed and hes 4 days late for feeding..?

Tyler,
hes cute, what is his name? is this a beginner snake or no? i watched the video, and the mistake he made was biting the mice on the butt.. but that just what i saw..

They are good beginner snakes Nikki. No, he didn't make a mistake in eating the mouse. The only mistake he could have made would have been to try to eat it belly first. My snakes try that sometimes.

Lol PJ has eaten one belly first before xD He totally bent the poor thing in half, I didn't think it would fit down his throat!
KSBs are good beginnger snakes, but they can be nippy sometimes.

Good Vid, good lighting and a very pretty snake.....but come on, there's no reason for you to feed it live rodents. It's getting to the point now that the RSPCA are actually prosecuting some people who feed live vertebrate food items to snakes.

Do the right thing and switch to frozen or at least prekill the mouse first, there's no reason for it to suffer like that.

Also newly proven, frozen is better for the snake....because freezing the mouse/rat/gerbil kills almost all parasites in the food item.
