Here’s a good example of me being a horrible, vicious, animal-cruelty-loving reptile owner refusing to feed my snake bugs because I just like to pretend my “indoor” snake is still wild.
But in all seriousness, Olly wasn’t too great at striking today. Missed three times and then ended up wrapping it once with his body without biting it, then let it go and kinda just started eating it, then suddenly decided when its head was already completely in his mouth that he wanted to do a half-assed constriction. His temps and everything are good so I guess maybe today he was feeling a little wonky.
If you look really carefully behind this Savu Island Python’s eyes you can almost see the pure hatred burning with the intensity of a thousand suns. Despite all of the lunging and biting, I still think that this may be one of the cutest snakes in the shop.
