Herp "Quirks"

Hey all,

Just wondering if your herps have any unusual or unique quirks. Something that sets them apart from others of their species. I'll start with mine.

Morpheus, the "Gentle Giant" corn snake has one quirk just in his size alone - 6 feet, and he appears to still be growing. But the biggest quirk with my big guy is that he never constricts his prey! It's almost like he knows that it's already dead. He just grabs it, and starts swallowing.

Also, he goes out of his way for human contact even while he is feeding. It's really unebelievable. He's the most gentle snake I've ever seen in my life.

My BCC also has a weird trait in that he doesn't seem to be the least bit interested in heat. He spends most of his time in the cool end of the viv, which is usually around 77 degrees. I even tried giving him a hide on the warm end, and he wanted nothing to do with it.

So, tell me all.. what weird traits do your herps have?
