The disappearing mouse!

Tonight Crisp tried for the second time to feed Bill the Ball Python. This time with great success :)


We defrosted the mouse and then warmed its fur with a hairdryer, wiggled it around a little with the tongs to get him interested, and he obligingly grabbed it and did his thing.


He rolled around and constricted it and then swallowed it butt-first.


Here he is after about 20 minutes, the mouse is the lump in the middle of his body.


It's awesome that he ate on only the second try, I've read about people having real problems getting their snakes to eat when initially brought home- it would appear Crisp is doing something right and has a bit of a talent for reptile keeping.
