Godzilla Eats Again

November 13, 2010 Leave a comment

I know alot of these posts are pretty mundane but I like adding to my blog, and im sure my animals appreciate it haha. Anyways had a extra mouse dethawing in my fridge so I decided to feed someone today. Seeing Godzilla is my biggest snake I figured she could use it the most. I accidently dropped it in the sand so I had to wash it off thats why it looks a little wet. I try not to get their food in the sand so they dont get impacted. I ended up putting it in a dish for her then sticking her nose in front of it. She didnt bite it at first but when I used my feeding tongs to wiggle the mouse she took it. Anyways check the pictures out, thats partly why I put these posts up.

Charlie the Kenyan Sand Boa

November 11, 2010 Leave a comment

Heres my little bitey male Kenyan sand boa. Got him and his partner off kijiji from an apparent reptile rescue. I felt more like i rescued him after I saw where he came from but we wont get into that. Dont know much about him or his partner, but I believe he is full grown and seems to be in good health. He has had a little shed stuck to his tail for a while but ive been soaking him in his water bowl a little and it seems to be comming off slowly. Hes not as bad as his partner but they are both pretty aggressive it seems. I really dont like sticking my hand in their cage they strike very fast. I use a snake hook to handle them and it seems to work a little better then trying to grab their tails lol. They were sold to me as a breeding pair and I hope to try breeding them in the spring.

Godzilla The Kenyan Sand Boa

November 11, 2010 Leave a comment

Here she is, my female Kenyan sand boa. Got her as a breeding pair of sand boas on kijiji (like most of my reptiles lol). Shes about 2 feet long, quick and very agressive. She strikes almost anything, but seems to have calmed down quite a bit since I got her. I dont think her previous owners treated her very good. I hope to breed her and Charlie in the spring. I named her Godzilla because when I got her she looked huge to me, as well as very fast. Shes still got a little shed stuck to her tail and I’ve been trying to soak her, but shes hard to handle.
