Re: New Black Rat

That's the plan. They're quite impressive as large adults.

Glad to see he's calming down for you Dave and a snake that good looking can be forgiven for being grumpy in shed

Re: New Black Rat

Here's a pic of the shed. It came out in one nice piece. It's almost 6' in length, if I was able to hold it straight, but it measured at 5'

Re: New Black Rat

He started eating again the past 2 weeks after going off feed for the winter. Last week he ate an adult mouse and a chick. Today he shed and ate a small rat for his 2nd feeding. Now this boy can get into some growing.
