    Sekai is growing like a weed - he's already in blue again, which means in a little less than two weeks, he'll shed and be all shiny (and friendly) again. But for now, he's starting to get grumpy. Didn't stop me from getting photos of him today though!

    You can kind of see a blue tint:

    He's one of the darker normals I've seen... especially pre-shed.

    It almost seems like his head changed shape pre-shed... very weird!

    Not exactly sure how long he is - I think he's about 38" long. He weighs about 590 grams, and still growing!

    he is so beautiful. I especially like the last pic. I still really want one, but I've accepted that I can't have on until after I move out of my current living situation. What are you feeding him... live? frozen?

    He refuses anything but live... so he gets live. It's fairly common with ball pythons. But really, when done correctly it's not as horrible as a lot of people make it out to be. Many longtime breeders who have been into snakes for decades (who have anywhere from 20-2000 snakes) feed live - and most that I've talked to have never had a snake injured. IMO that's a lot of snakes, eating a lot of live meals for a lot of years! You just have to make sure you get an appropriately sized prey item and don't leave it with the snake unattended. The only real damage an appropriately sized rodent can do is if it's left with a non-hungry snake for long periods of time, with no supervision.

    Sekai gets a small rat once a week, unless he's in blue and then we skip a week. He never eats in blue anyway. ;)
