You're all good; I enjoy answering them.Aww....he sound fun! Have you had him long? So he eats rats? Are they live or dead? How often does he eat? (Sorry for all the questions, I'm just so curious about snakes!
Yes I would imagine they only like live food. I guess he thinks your hand is more alive than the rat? Do you have to keep a heat lamp on him?You're all good; I enjoy answering them.
I usually feed Snek a frozen thawed small rat once every two weeks. Unfortunately I am not very good about a consistent schedule, but once every two weeks is the recommendation for adult ball pythons. I buy them frozen, and on feeding days I put one in a plastic bag and submerge it in water until it thaws. When it is feeding time, I submerge it in hot water to heat it up. Ball pythons are very picky eaters, and won't eat anything they think is not alive.
Yes, he has a heat pad underneath one of his two caves, along with a reptile heat lamp above. They don't need light, though.Yes I would imagine they only like live food. I guess he thinks your hand is more alive than the rat? Do you have to keep a heat lamp on him?
