Thread: Ball Update

Just wanted to update everyone on my Ball Python Albus. In short, he's doing great! For anyone who doesnt know, I got him from one of Demjor's recent clutches and am very glad I did! He eats like a monster, doesn't seem to care if it's a mouse or a rat, or even still a little cold, if its small and furry he's eating it He's also become very friendly, by far the most personable snake I have been around. He loves coming out and hangin out with me while im on the computer, he's on my lap as im typing this and thawing his dinner in the sink lol.
It took me a little while to get the humidity to where he was able to shed well but wasn't so moist as to cause mold to grow, but I seem to have balanced it well recently. Only issue I have had is he had one spot right on the top of his head that he couldn't get to come off during his last shed. When I got home from work he had lifted a scale up rubbing on a sharp part of his rock. I cleaned it and it scabbed right over, he's fine now and his scab should be gone after next shed. I also sanded the rock down so he can't do it again lol.
Anyway, thanks again Jordan! He's doing great!
Also, he says hi!

The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of the act

Demjor19, What Balls he has! :-D
Awesome looking snake FJ
Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.
