My parents won't let me get one snake because she hates critters but I think they're fascinating.

My 7 year old male hasn't eaten since last aug. We brought him a chicken this weekend he killed it saturday night about 11pm, he still hasn't eaten it and it is almost 11pm sunday. he has never taken more than an hour to eat his kill, why would he not eat this one, and when should we take the dead chicken out? This is very odd, chicken is his favorite.

I have a three year old female that hasn't eaten for at least 5 months. What can I do to get her to start eating again?

    Feed it a small lizard or bird. The following week scent the mouse with the animal you feed the week previous, and he should pick back up his eating habits again. (to scent just leave mouse in the same container with the lizard for a couple of days)

    Ball Python sexing is relatively easy. All pythons and boas have anal spurs. The spurs are a claw-like structure located about 2" - 3" from the tip of the tail. Male ball pythons have longer spurs than females. There is a theory that the spurs are evolutionary remnants of hind legs! Male pythons also tend to have smaller heads than females.

    Sexing is best done by somebody with experience. With that said there are two common ways to determine the sex of your ball python.

    #1 - Probing: Probing is done with an appropriately sized stainless steel rod with a rounded end. You first sterilize the rod. Then you lubricate the rod with preferably KY Jelly, or Vaseline. Then you insert the rod SLOWLY into the vent of the snake gently pushing the rod toward the tail until you feel resistance. DO NOT push the rod past this point! Now with your thumbnail mark how deep the rod went into the vent before resistance was felt. Now slowly pull the rod out keeping the spot marked on the rod, and lay it on the snakes tail to compare it to the amount of scales down the tail. If the length inserted is equal to no more that 2 to 4 scales ( typically 3 ) then the ball python is female. If it is more ( typically 7 or 8 ) then it is a male. Now you must remember to remove any lube that may be left on the snake.

    The second method is popping which is to manually force the snake to show their hemipenes. This method is easy to perform if done properly, but is easiest to learn if taught in person by somebody with experience.

I have an Albino corn that is now 16. My daughters friend purchased it when pencil size. I am a retired Biology teacher and had it in class until I retired. It loves being handled and only bit me once when I stupidly handled it after changing my mice bedding. He is housebroken and every few days I let him drik from the sink then place into the shower and it goes withing 5 minutes. Sanitize the floor and away you go.He loves being handled. Great snake pet.

Try puting a blanket in his tank. I put one in with my corn snake and he won't come out of it.

I really want a snake but my parents won't allow me. They are such cool critters which shouldn't be feared or pictured as mercilous and mindless hunters.
