Re: Cuddles the Woma Python

Make sure the humidity is good if she's shedding. Even though you have a humid hide you can still give her enclosure a light misting to help the shed come off without any issues.

Re: Cuddles the Woma Python

I will. I have a spray bottle and whatever the spongy stuff was for the hide ready.
However, she already figured out the water dish and dipped into that and went back to rubbing.

Re: Cuddles the Woma Python

I got curious.
I waited until she was on the other side.
I saw:
  • A poop
  • A urate
  • And a single piece of shed skin
I suppose she is in good health.

Yep. I am aware. Just still aware that something bad still has the opportunity to occur.

Re: Cuddles the Woma Python

Things have gone well so far. Tonight marks the 6th meal she has had with me, so come Wednesday I will handle her for the first time.
I got gloves to help prevent me from getting too jumpy, but honestly I have never seen her strike at me. Even the vet was surprised not to see any defensive strikes from her.
Looking to only do a minute.
Thoughts?

Re: Cuddles the Woma Python

I did hold her yesterday for a minute no issues. She stood there. I stood there. And then I let her slither off into her hide. No hurry to do so.
Fast forward to today, she decided she wanted to watch me give me water. Up close.
They aren't usually this easy going, are they?

Re: Cuddles the Woma Python

As your snake acclimates and grows she should chill out more and more. I believe most snakes are pretty docile once they realize they're in no danger. A few are natural spitfires and always will be.

Re: Cuddles the Woma Python

Just biding her time until she gets comfortable enough to bite and see how you taste, lol.

That thought was in the back of my head. However, she did not take the chance today.

I did something a little different.
I gave her a light rub with the hook, but didn't try to take her out; I let her try to come out. She made her way over, looking for the glass and looked a bit before coming out to inspect the glove. I did lift her back half and she obliged. Sat there a minute before I put her back down.

Now she is wondering why the glass door is back.

Re: Cuddles the Woma Python

Not all womas are black holes with tails. You might have a naturally docile animal who doesn't regard you as tonight's special. Tap training is still a good idea, but I wouldn't be alarmed that your snake *isn't* taking shots at you... tasty human. :P

Re: Cuddles the Woma Python

I will mention this has been with gloves on. I do just want to offer her my hand after tapping her to see what happens. Sooner or later, when she does bite I prefer it be in a controlled situation. I kind of expect her to sample and test a finger.

Re: Cuddles the Woma Python

Another question. I bought this piece of root a while back. It is something like sand-blasted, sanitized rosewood. I can't remember what it was called.
Width: 16"
Length: 24"
Height: 12"

But I am thinking about putting this in after I clean the cage next on the cool side to keep it away from the panel. She has been climbing a lot, but only in the space between the inner border and the glass door by expanding.

Any reason I shouldn't put this in there?
