I am so happy! Last night, Zues and Athena ate their first meal! Zues and Athena are 2 Captive-Bred Ball Pythons. First to be fed was Zues. I fed him a Hopper because his mouth isnt big enough for a weanling yet. As soon as the mouse got in there he did a sharp turn and did a 1 strike kill. It took him 10 minutes to figure out how to swallow it because he tried to eat it sideways, then ate it head first. After 2 hours I took him out of the feeding tub and put him back home. Next was Athena. I put a Weanling in with her and about 5 minutes later she found it. Long chase, but she nailed it. After she got it, she held it in her mouth for about 30 secs because it was still alive. She ate that mouse in less than 10 minutes. 1 Hour later I put her back in. Today I will be moving both of them to a brand new 55 Gallon. I read the 35 Gallon Hex had little floor space (and I agree with that). Some people told me they shouldn't live together, but I see no problem because they acually stay balled up together and never once have they ever nipped each other. They are both 4 months old from the same litter. I love them so much!
