Well I've aquired a few animals since the last time I've been really active on this board. Here are some pics.

It looks so focused in the second picture, which makes it look so goofy because of the huge piece of food in its mouth. Razz

And your local T is a mature male . . . probably won't get much life out of him. Mayhap re-release him and let him "spread his seed"? Very Happy

Nice rattler! You're crazy as you-know-what to keep one of those! I'm guessing that you have a lot of experience with snakes like that Surprised

I have a MM T and I've gotten about a year out of him so far. Every time I look in there I expect him to be dead ;x

Thanks guys. The rattlers's cage is a 4x6x4ft enclosure. The snake itself is about 2 1/2ft. I'll take more pics. I haven't posted any of my completed animal room. I'm still learning how to use this camera i've had for over a year.

Pretty wicked. But it has calmed down a lot. At first it was all rattles. Only struck a couple times. I give it its space. Now I can go in the room and work for hours at a time and only hear one or two short rattles when I move too fast. I've had it for about a month.

The longnose on the other hand is a fiesty little bugger. It likes to aim for the face. Still having some issues getting it to eat.

I dont have any experience with the longnose... but I do like the colors. What is their normal diet?

From what I've read it is insects, lizards and small mammals. I have not been able to get him to eat a pinky mouse or a cricket. I believe there diet consists mainly of lizards so he isn't adjusting to the change of diet. Any suggestions to get him to feed?

have you tried scenting a pinky with a lizard?

wash the pinky first with UNscented soap the scent with a lizard.... preferably something from their normal habitat.

I'll have to give that a whirl. I just have to catch one of those buggers.
