And here are a couple critters I've had for a while now

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.
