    I have two hatchlings they are around 3 months

    now. they are in a tank that was used for another snake. I pit in a makeshift partition but the female keeps escaping to the other side to be with the male. should I just let them live together or should I separate them?

    2am and my a**hole snake is trying to eat

    himself again. This of course means I have to turn on all of the lights, get up out of bed, and grab a Q-tip and rubbing alcohol. Like, I know you hate the taste of alcohol but if you didn't try to eat yourself all the time I wouldn't have to put a Q-tip of it in your mouth.

    Fluffy

    Fluffy is the cowardly Kingsnake - he is a California Kingsnake. He will not eat live mice because one bit him when he was young and he is afraid of them. He is such a picky eater that he will only eat one particular sort of mouse, too.

    hey guys I recently got a couple of Ball python

    hatchlings is it a characteristic of these snakes that sometimes they feel a bit "floppy". I have seen them both feed so they should have energy. it has worried me once or twice is all. I guess it's because they are young, not greatly strong right now and why support your weight...
