Ooooooooohh pretty! Love the iridescence.

Re: White Lipped Python

Thanks Eminart! I'll have to try and get some with better lighting, he's so pretty.

I know some of you might disagree with it so soon, but he had his second meal with me tonight. He wouldn't take it till I set it down in front of his face lol. His first meal was very small, like didn't leave a lump, he was already out looking tonight so I gave him two which should be good for the week. Hopefully it's smooth sailing from here.

Re: White Lipped Python

Again, nice addition! The food response doesn't surprise me. Glad to hear he's eating so well with you so far. I actually saw few of these northerns (babies though) at the Atlanta show, reminded me of your guy. :P I don't think a second feeding so soon should hurt him if the meal was small, I just wouldn't do it all the time.

Re: White Lipped Python

Oh definitely won't be all the time, I hear once these guys get eating then their appetites are great though. In ways I wish I would have started with a baby, but overall I'm very happy with him. After this he'll get a week, and we'll go from there. Gotta get him some of the right size once I free up some freezer space.

Re: White Lipped Python

Thanks! Unfortunately I have to reschedule as we had some personal family stuff come up. Oddly though, the lump seemed smaller after he had his shed.

Re: White Lipped Python

Just cause I always see this thread on the front page I'll post here. I got a northern WLP yesterday. Beautiful creatures they are. I used a hook to get him out of the bag and at first he tried to flee but then quickly shot up my hook, up to my hand and struck my thumb lol. It drew some blood but I think I only had one puncture. It felt like a light tap with a pencil (think pencil wars in school where you break them) but it was insanely fast and no wind-up. Was just moving fairly calmly up to me and then BAM! Easy enough to laugh off.

I'll have to measure mine in the coming days but I'm guessing hes about 3 to 3-1/2 feet long. A little bigger than I was expecting from the store tbh but not bad. I'm very excited about him and cant wait to get the time to take some pics. Snoopy, it looks like you have a very very nice snake. Whats the humidity you're keeping yours at? Are sheds coming out well? For some reason when I look up their humidity I struggle to find people that state specifically what % it should be. A lot seem to just say high humidity...i take that to mean 70+ Probably closer to 80.

Re: White Lipped Python

Congrats on your new white lip. I had estimated mine at 4' at the expo but once I had him stretched out at home I realized it was closer to 6'. He's nice looking but doesn't act nice I keep mine at 75%-80%, he's only had one shed in the two months with me which was a few days after I got him. It was mostly in one piece with some tatters, just he has scars which may have made it a bit more difficult. I have also had that problem with care sheets. Right now I'm having some difficulty with him and his feeding.

Re: White Lipped Python

I saw your thread about having problems feeding. Thats no good. I'm going to try feeding mine tomorrow. Seeing as he coils back looking to strike at any chance he gets, I'm feeling good that mine will eat ok though I'm not fully expecting one or the other.

Thanks for the humidity %. I was keeping him at 75% but was struggling with it due to having to use a tank for the moment. I just threw in some soil topped with mulch. Ive found that a layer of soil under the mulch helps big time with humidity in those tanks. Anyhow, its up at a steady 80 right now. I'm in the last phase of building his proper cage right now. Just need to stain and seal.

I havent had much chance time to handle him yet as I want him a little settled before I get into handling him. He's a quick and feisty guy, always at the ready for whatever comes his way. They're absolutely stunning animals to observe while they move about. Pretty exhilarating to work with thus far.

Was trying to post a pic of mine but im having trouble uploading it to the post. Will try again some other time.

Re: White Lipped Python

This guy hasn't eaten for me since August 24th and today I realized he's lost more weight than I'm comfortable with, so I'm going to try a brained rat tomorrow night and if he doesn't take that then I'm waiting a few days and trying live. Next step will be the vet if he won't take live.

Re: White Lipped Python

Uhh I hope he'll start eating. He sure lost a lot of weight, it's really frustrating when they do this. Fingers crossed for you!

How do I do an assisted feed? I figured I'd take him to the vet anyway because he had this lump when I got him, I don't see it anymore but I want to make sure its not causing any problems.
