What is the easiest way to measure the lenght of a Snake? I tried to measure my Boa last night because I want to keep a record of his growth but the little bugger kept coiling around my arm! I just wondered what is the easiest way without stressing him to much. Any suggestions would be appreciated.:)

Bit of string mate.
Hold one end up near the head and as he moves, move the bit of string along him till you get to his tail.

or if it's easier to get a pic of him (on something flat, not your arm) you can use this wonderful bit of programming :smile:

[SIZE=-1]Not a silly question at all! I'm having problems weighing my hatchling. I put her in the digi scales bowl, lined with a paper towel, and the little bugger shoots out. Haha.
