    hey guys, just looking for some advice, I have a boa, just coming up to 2 years old, he has always been the most docile snake and just recently he's getting more aggressive. I don't think he is angry, I think its just a feeding response. Its only ever when we have mice out for feeding or in...

    Hey guys! Just a quick discussion. Okay, so - My snake never strikes and coils his dead frozen thaw mice. He's become really finicky with feeding recently and won't take mice from tongs for the past few feeds. He used to all the time and now i have too leave the mouse in a tub and a towel over...

    Hi, yesterday I rehomed an approx 18 month, male royal from a rescue centre. He was originally surrendered by a store due to being aggressive through a complete lack of handling whatsoever to the point he would strike at the glass pr his viv when people went past him. The rescue had him approx 4...

    Hey everyone :) I bought a male approx 1 and a half year old BCI late last year and found him to be very tame, maybe a little skittish and fast but had no problem removing him from his little rub, which had a lid that opened from above, that i kept him in whilst i was waiting a few weeks for the...

    Hey guys, I'm sorry if this question has been posted before but I'm curious... We recently got our little hoggie (cutest snake I ever saw) and today was her first feed since bringing her home. The shop said she was happily strike feeding but she showed absolutely no interest when I tried. As...

    Well I have had him for a week now and he is one of the most exciting snakes I have kept. Typical Radiated flattens body, strikes a lot and loves to gap his mouth when disturbed. He is so fast and unpredictable it makes cleaning his tub a lot of fun. :-) I love this snake, everyone should have...

    Hello everyone! So my corn snake, Bo, is docile as anything when outside of her viv. I had to change feeding her outside to feeding her in the viv because i didnt have anything to put her in and now any tiny movement she sees she strikes at thinking its food! Now i can't even get her out of her...

    Helllooo, Just a wondering really, my royal is now eating small mice and seems to want more very quickly. I got him out this morning due to him moving around his rub for about an hour put him on my bed and he decided to bend his neck back (as they do to strike feed) at me and just sort of...

    Hi all, So I am currently teasing my royals into strike feeding but this is becoming a tedious task and taking a lot of my time. My question is how many of you drop feed your royals and are they successful feeders week in week out???? I'm hoping to switch over to drop feeding but I don't want...

    Our Royal Python is striking but completely missing his rat. Is there any known reason for this, they are both (the male and female) doing this but never as bad as tonight. He just keeps striking as if to go for my hand rather than rat. Any advice appreciated Thanks

    My hognose baby seems to think he is a cobra. Feeding brilliantly on pinkies twice a week but any attempt at getting him out results in him flattening his head and raising it into a sort of hood like a cobra with seriously impressive hissing and striking I'm hoping this is a phase (or I'm...
