LOOK AT THIS CUTIE. Some wild birds were going crazy outside this morning while I was tryin to sleep so i went to investigate (chase them away) and found our resident eastern carpet python chillin in the waterpots. This guy is a regular so he is really relaxed around people, i dont think ive ever seen him strike or even go into position, so he lets you get super close (just squirmy if you try to touch him).
Hes only just woken up with the warmer weather weve been having so hopefully he finds some nice meals to fatten him up soon, although he seems to be in really good condition (correct me if im wrong) ! :>

sorry for the crappy iphone pics !

aaaggh. I’m at my wit’s end. WWe’ve been keeping it on the down low until we’d see how things played out but I’m just frustrated. 

After receiving Cypress+Ripley this Summer things have just seemed to go downhill. They’ve eaten maybe five times collectively in the nearly four months we’ve had them, they’ve given us an URI scare and now on top of that I come home to find that after finally eating, Ripley had regurgitated. I don’t want to point fingers but surely it can’t be coincidence that all of our other snakes are fine and in good health and these two (from the same breeder) are giving us so many problems. 

Not eating isn’t unusual for BPs so you don’t have to worry about it unless they’re losing a lot of weight. Granted if they’re young and hatchlings, hatchlings do have a better feeding response than adults tend to, but still not out of the realm of ordinary. One of my hatchlings didn’t eat for two months and it was fresh out of the egg. Some of my adults won’t eat for six months upwards of a year. It’s normal.

As for Ripley, get him into a vet asap with a stool sample. He probably has internal parasites. If you are absolutely certain the husbandry (temp and humidity) are appropriate for him then that’s the main reason why he would be regurging. I had that issue with one baby from a breeder, and it took about a week of meds to get the parasites out. It’s not expensive, it’s like $90 for the meds and $50 for the visit.

We know that not eating is common for BPs and have had several off feed over the last few years. the issue is that these guys are losing weight and its becoming a concern. I’m mostly frustrated with any responses from the breeder as well as the constant issues we’re having with these two snakes in general. 

A vet visit is in the works.

Anonymous asked: Hi, quick question if you've got a sec! I just purchased my first ever BP. He's about 2 months old and 114 grams and his breeder was last feeding him rat pups. I want to order some f/t rodents and I want to order them for future months (basically in bulk) to save from not having multiple shipping fees. In your experience, how long do snakes stay on pups? I know it depends on the snake, but I really don't want to end up ordering too much, or too little. Any suggestions? Rough estimations? Thanks!

Hello! Well first off, congrats on your new little noodle!
I don’t believe there is a good estimation on how long because it really depends on the growth patterns of the individual animals.

To be honest, we’ve had some of our snakes on pups for only a couple months while others don’t grow as quickly and are on after 3+ months.

I would say order about 2-3 months worth of pups and see how much he’s grown at about the 1 1/2 - 2 month mark. If needed you can try and feed double if he’s grown exponentially. Then order again around the 2 month mark for another couple months or so!

Honestly it’s hard to say since we have multiple snakes and any ‘extras’ can go to the smaller ones.

But we wish you luck and if you want any more advice please let us know!!
