Was feeding my female IJ carpet python (Carly) and decided to snap some pics.
Good pics of a beautiful Carpet snake feeding!
Thanks! She constricted it for like 15-20 minutes and is was a f/t mouse, lol.
Yes, those f/t mice take some killing!
Lol, they sure seem to think so.
I can't get over the bold marking on Carly's head, gorgeous! Looks like you have a great feeder!
That bold marking is what made me pick her. She was a very difficult feed for the first 2 months, but now she is pounding mice. She even ate 2 this time cause I accidentally counted out to many mice, so I just decided to let her have it.
Are you saying that you have too many snakes, ok I'm on my way over, I'll take which ever one you don't want,o or did you think you had more, if so I guess you'll have to get another so that your count isn't off again
I simply lost count. I have 8 snakes that are eating the same size and I thought I counted out 8, but I actually counted out 9. Believe me, it's difficult counting out snakes for 21 mice.
So pretty! And you gotta love the enthusiasm.
Nice pics! I always feed at night so I can never get the good pics. Good looking carpet too!!
I feed late at night, usually after midnight, but all my herps are in one room, so I just turn the light on for that room during feeding. Their enclosure lights go off around 6 or 7.
Reminds me, I need to feed some of my snakes today. Maybe I'll take some pictures too.
You do that.
It always cracks me up how eagerly they coil the F/T rodent. Reminds me of the Wizard of Oz:
But we have to verify it legally to see

Is morally, ethic'lly
Undeniably and reliably Dead!
Awesome IJ, when do you plan on switching over to rats??
I actually tryed to get her to take a rat pup last Tuesday, but she didn't want it. I plan on trying again Monday.
