    I figured I might as well say that I have been fostering a Nelson's milksnake lately. It's still not decided whether or not he's going to become a permanent member of the family but for now he's going to stay.

    He's had a lot of stress lately so his first meal here ended up regurged but I'm happy to announce that it has eaten since then and had no problems. Though I did have to cut the pinky in half since this snake is so tiny. I still haven't been musked but I haven't been holding this snake a whole lot due to the fact that it regurged it's first meal here and it was stressed out for a little while.

    Well this is my first milksnake and I've read up on them, still not sure if we're going to keep him or not, trying to find a good home for him right now, we'll see.

    Anyways, here's a pic.

    The reason I fed it only a half is because it regurged the smallest pinky I had two weeks ago and I didn't want it to do it again so this is just to get him to eat without over stressing him. I don't want it to keep doing it whether or not it's because it's so small or it was just over stressed that week I don't know but I don't want that to happen again.

    I found a home for the little guy. He won't get him till next week but I'm happy that I found a good home. He has a bunch of herps already and is happy to have another one so that's good, and he knows what he's doing so all is well.
