Bahsoon is FAT! I thought she would not want to eat, having just moved in recently, so I tossed a lg hopper in there last night. She is used to live as that is what the breeder gives them until they are adults, but I am going to transition her to f/t. Anyway, I sit and watch and watch and watch. She just sits curled up watching the mouse, with her head resting on herself. After an hour, I figure she wants it dark so I turn off the light and still try to see. Nothing.

I go off to get a cup of tea and come back. I can't see a thing. I flip on her small heat lamp only to see her all sprawled out with just some hind legs and a tail hanging out of her mouth, she is motionless except for her eyes flip up at me and she has this look like I caught her doing something embarrassing. I quickly flip the light back off. By morning she is curled up in her hide flipping her tongue out the opening looking very happy. I'll leave her be for a couple days.

My dragon was sitting on my shoulder today while I was doing some work at the kitchen table. He decided that he wanted to hang on my ponytail and seemed to enjoy swinging by it when I would walk around because I kept putting him back on my shoulder and he would crawl back to my ponytail. Quite the character.

Yeah, the pet store I got my snakes from said Aden may not be eating because I kept him out in the open and in light ((Which he's still not eating anyway, but still))

She said that if you watch them and they can see you, they won't eat because they think that if they start eating and you decide to attack them ((As if, but try telling them that :roll: xD)), they won't be able to defend themselves. That's probably why she looked at you like that when you caught her eating :3 She was making sure you weren't going to attack. Or she's just embarrassed cause she's a little fat thing and doesn't want people seeing her pig out xD

I wish my snakes would let me watch =(

That sounds about right, It is rare that my Ball Python will eat when the lights are on either. (Seems to depend on his mood)

As I stated, I use his red night light so I can see what is going on and mostly to see if I have to dig the mouse out of a spot where he dropped it and can't get at it easy. The key problem is that they can pick up your heat so well.

Snakes are odd little creatures when it comes to eating.
