Re: White Lipped Python

Thanks guys! I don't wanna chalk his calmness up to being cold, there were other animals there that needed the same temps and were more feisty lol. I have wanted one for awhile. It was the perfect opportunity. He looks ready to shed, pink belly. He's got a few marks from live feeds (hopefully he takes f/t fine) but with the right care he'll be fixed right up. He warmed up a bit when I got him home and was still super calm when I hooked him out, and he even seemed hungry. My biggest concern is that there's a small lump on one of his sides, I'll have to grab a pic later.

Re: White Lipped Python

Well, Albert(?) is deep in blue. He has a vet appointment on Friday, so I'll update everyone then and get some pics. Going to try feeding tomorrow, we'll see how it goes.

Wow! Very unique. Great choice and I hope he adjusts and enjoys his new enclosure.

Re: White Lipped Python

White lips are so gorgeous! Not a fan of their typical temperament, but if I ever find a really chill individual I would snap it up in a heartbeat. They're one of my absolute favorite wild types. Very impressive animals.

Re: White Lipped Python

Thanks guys Very happy to have him. Hopefully his attitude doesn't change once we fix him up.

Re: White Lipped Python

Unlikely that would affect his disposition, though I did hear of a ball python that had a bad case of mouth rot many years ago when I was in college. He was taken in by the school as a rescue, and along with the antibiotic shots they force fed him for some time. I don't know how his temperament was prior to that, but they kept him in a large glass fronted display case type enclosure, and he would strike the glass quite hard whenever he saw anyone in a white lab coat.
Back in those days BP's were almost always WC imports, and considering the condition that one was in I can't imagine he'd had a good experienced with people in general before he was taken care of.

Re: White Lipped Python

Offered food today, he refused. Going to go ahead and order some quail for him.

Re: White Lipped Python

He had his first shed here last night, came out nearly perfect aside from a few spots that tore, which isn't surprising since he's got a few healing scars. Woo!

Re: White Lipped Python

Totally jelly. Getting ready to build a new cage for a new wlp. I cant wait to start my actual search for one. Beautiful snake you picked up. Knowing it shed last night Id suspect thats why he didnt eat. Maybe not but i'd give it another go.

Re: White Lipped Python

They're beautiful, and unique-looking snakes. They remind me a lot of their cousins and neighbors, the Boelen's python.

Definitely!! I prefer these over Boelen's because they're less 'blocky' I guess.

Why order quail if you fed him right before a shed? I would try again with a rodent in a few days.

Re: White Lipped Python

I'm going to try again first, I guess I just felt it'd be a good idea to have them already in case he won't take the rats. I planned on ordering them big enough for him but small enough for my rainbow boas so that way if he still won't eat them my rainbows get some variety too. I'm going to wait him out just a bit longer though.
