The Whip!

The enclosure is up on a desk, and has sliding front doors. When I went to feed Mr Burrows I approached at such an angle that I was directly facing him and he was already coiled up and ready to strike.

As I moved my hand forward, holding the rat in tongs, the snake lunged forward and grabbed it so fast that I actually heard the ‘whip’ sound. Freaked me out a bit – i backed away and left the door open for a while because I didn’t want my hand anyhwere near something that could move so fast LOL.
