    For some reason my guys were awake this afternoon so I figured I'd get some photos. I also wanted to show in pictures the difference in keeping Chondros and Ball pythons. First my chondros, don't know why they were awake but it was nice to seen them moving during the day. Maybe all the cleaning I was doing today and changing their water out. Anyway enjoy!



    Waking up i think


    This is where she dared me to open the door.... I didn't :)

    Now for the Ball Python..... Male spider

    female lesser....

    See my point ;)

    thanks everyone! I know my snakes well enough to know when I'll stick my hand in there and when I need my hook :)

    Do you have to handle them to clean the cage?
    How do you get a chondro from their perch using a hook? I have only seen people rub their belly with their hands to get them to move onto their arm. Educate us! or perhaps just me? ;)
    My female red tail is a super eating machine and I have to move her to clean her cage so she won't strike at me, shes already grabbed me once when I was changing her water and didn't realize she was under the leaves by her water. Luckily, she is little so I got was a lil bitty scratch. She is fine once she is out, not aggressive at all, but she is in total feeding mode until she is out of that cage!

    I don't have to handle them to clean unless it's a full cleaning. If that's the case their perches are removable because you can spend a long time getting one off. Once they're out they can be coxed off their branches easier. The hook I used when I'm moving stuff around and they get much too interested in my hand :) Once I tap them with it a couple of time they see it's not feeding time and usually coil back up unless they're really hungry. When they're out of the enclosure they're pretty calm though.
