The scales on the top/end part of the tail of my ball python has turned a redish color almost over night. Its not crusty of nasty looking, the scales still look healthy too. Any ideas?

    Has your snake shed recently? The scales are the brightest and most colorful right after they shed. On rare occasions they will have challenges shedding the tip of the tail skin. When it does fall off it may bleed a little and then scab over. Perhaps your snake had a similar thing, but leaving the skin reddish in color.

    That's crazy.

    Sounds like scale rot, not serious but check the belly of it if it has any sort of pink tint it is definitely scale rot, if it likes to stay in the water do not mist the tank or try taking the water dish out for a night or two.

Our neighbor caught a RGS yesterday, but his girlfriend wouldn't allow him to keep it. He gave her to us, and so far, so good! She ate today, and she is healthy! Her color is vibrant, eyes clear, and no mites. We are thrilled with her. (Yes, I am sure it's a girl-- I learned how to sex snakes at camp as a teen.) Knowing nothing about her, we put her in an aquarium overnight, with a screen lid on top- the next morning, she had escaped! We found her easily enough, climbing on our aquarium stand across the room. She hasn't been aggressive AT ALL, Even my children can handle her, and my husband just loves her to pieces! We named her Escape (pronounced Eh- skah- pay).

I'm thinking about getting a rtb but I don't know what kind of cage setup would be good if anyone has any suggestions I could use some help.

    Email me with any questions you may have. I have owned a RTB for about a year now which doesn't sound like long but I am very knowledgeable. My email is Youngoutlaw100@aol.com

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)
