Re: Henry - Morelia spilota harrisoni

Thanks guys. I'm super happy with him. It was a tough call whether to get hon both domestically and also from the point of view that whilst there are many snakes I want there's a possibility that him and the Boa will be it so it was a case of do I go for it or decide later on something else.

More photos-well because photos. He continues to be completely chilled when handling and he'll be in a proper viv by the end of the week.

Thanks JB. Just a phone shot but the more I use the Samsung S7''s camera the more it surprises me. Will have to get the SLR out and pop on the macro lens and compare the two.

I'm liking Jerry a lot also. I let Finley handle him today and he was absolutely fine with it. Didn't flinch at all.

Re: Henry - Morelia spilota harrisoni

Not much to report of Jerry (as he is now known) other than he is growing like a weed. The difference is growth rates between a boa and a python is staggering! It's interesting as well the difference girth makes to perceived length. I actually think he and auntie Rachel are about the same length yet he seems the much smaller snake because he is so much more slender.

Still a wonderfully good natured carpet and coming on beautifully.

Very cute picture and the growth speed difference is quite something!

Re: Henry - Morelia spilota harrisoni

Jerry continues to be such a great snake - totally chilled and just a joy to own. He's eating well again since his escape and is settled in to the new house.

Caught him basking under his uv last night. One of his favourite spots at the moment.

One thing that always surprises me when comparing many pythons to say boas is their outrageous growth when young. Hes grown substantially!

And apologies. I don't know why I'm posting so many sideways photos at the moment!
