Got ahold of some stinky male mouse bedding and scented some rats for Ylla and ED-E. Huzzah! The hunger strike is over!
Feeding night is always interesting with my hoard. Ylla and ED-E now both seem to prefer smaller prey so I’m trying to see if I can switch them from mice to smaller rats and gradually back up to what they were eating a few months ago. Dracarys completely missed his strike and decided to turn around and snap at his own body before finally grabbing his food. Balerion has always had a habit of flailing around as soon as he gets a hold of his mouse and somehow got under his water dish and poured water all over his newly cleaned tub; my fault for not waiting to put it back in after he was finished. Kyril…oh Kyril, I have to draw this today. Kyril got a good hold of his rat and then proceeded to drag it around the tub in his lower coils while trying to scent for where is food had gone and eventually nosing at the front of the tub for me to drop it in…After 20 minutes of this I poked at the rat and he finally turned around and grabbed it. My special babs, I think I’ll have to record the next feeding.
Ijada wins because she gets everything on the first strike.
I have a herp/fish will somewhere on my computer lol. I should update it.
Haha, glad I’m not the only one who thinks of that. I suppose I should finally get around to joining my local herp society.
Gotta love having a late night existential crisis when the question of “who will get all my snakes if I get hit by a bus tomorrow?” comes out of all that nonsense.
I don’t have local herp friends, so this is an interesting if dark question. :P I suppose I should write up some kind of herp will along with my house sitting care instructions, ahaha.
Ylla FINALLY took food, but the only thing that interested her was an adult mouse…I may have to scent some rats so this doesn’t become a thing with her.
