Thanks Scotty,

Is this something that will stay with the animal through multiple sheds or would it be lost with growth of the scales - is it really close to the margin of the scales? What is used - just a small hole punch or is it clipped with scissors? I imagine that if it is permanent it would be somewhat painful for the animal - sort of like ear notching in rodents?? Is it a method that could be used on hatchlings or does the snake have to be of a certain size?

thanks again for the response,

mary v.
