Re: The Life Of Mercy

Coming on nicely Klaire. Lovely snake. I will start a progression thread for my boa as promised.

Was meant to do it the last couple of weeks but I lost my mum last week following a short, brutal cancer diagnosis and was nursing her at home before she passed away.

dear danny, I just read the post about your loss. I am so sorry. "Do not stand at my grave and weep. I am not there, I do not sleep. I am in a thousand winds that blow. I am in the softly falling snow." by Mary Elizabeth Frye.

Re: The Life Of Mercy

That was a pretty sweet video, you should definitely do more in slow motion like that

Re: The Life Of Mercy

Thanks Ziggy! Her behaviour towards food is definitely newly adapted. She never used to be aggressive she used to just slither up to it and start eating (hence why i don't have feeding tongs) but now she lunges and wraps it up really well so i will have to start dangling the prey for her once i get these tongs so she can have a more realistic experience and use her newly adapted behaviour better

Re: The Life Of Mercy

Yeah I'm going to need some longer tongs soon Klaire. Their strike range, speed, and strength increase pretty quickly . I'm always amazed at how slow and gracefully they move and yet how fast and intensely they strike.
