I got my cali king today, from Shropshire Exotics in Newport, an excellent shop(thanks for the recommendation PendleHog :D ), and a gorgeous little snake that I handled for an hour straight, lol, and at the moment it is in one of its hides, poking its head out every now and again, a gorgeous little snake :D I'll post some pics when it has settled in :D

It wasn't the tiny Cali in the hatchling tub, it was the bigger one, about a foot, foot and half long and it has a lovely temperament. I can't remember the name of the person who I talked to when I handled the snake but he was very enthusiastic about knigsnakes and apparently didn't work there lol, he just spends most of his time there :lol: , there was also a lady there who was wearing a black coat and my brother stroked her beardies, lol, (again I didn't catch her name) but the staff were very helpful and friendly, a lovely shop and beautiful healthy snake :D

Nice one :D

It's weird, I cant imagine a snake moving about during the day. My corns just sleep all day being nocturnal! agh... kings snakes move about during the day so it must be fun to see them. :)

It fed today, two large pinkies, the first one was on the floor of the feeding tub which it took gently, the next one I held in my feeding tongs and wiggled it a bit, it strikes and misses twice, the third time, it nails it, comes flying out of the feeding tub, coils around it in mid air and lands on my bed, half in, half out of the feeding tub, it constricted the mouse that hard you could hear bones cunch, it was awesome :D
