Monday: let him out, played around for a couple of hours
Tuesday: another few hours of hanging out after work.
Wednesday: he stayed in hide, wasn’t interested in doing anything.
Thursday: good feeding, 35g weaned rat.
Took Mr Burrows a while to decide if he wanted to get out of tank for nightly stroll or eat but it’s been over a week since he fed and eventually he took the f/t weaned rat.
A few hours later I caught him lazing around, soaking in his water bowl like an ancient Roman after a feast.
Might be time to get a larger bowl,
Had Mr Burrows out for a few hours last night, he found a warm spot on couch near radiator to hang out, then we ‘wrestled’ for a while until he was not into it anymore.
When I put him back into enclosure he went head first into the water bowl, first time I’ve seen him drink.
Had Mr Burrows out of the enclosure for a few hours last night. Weeks ago he managed to get from living room to bedroom through a small space where radiator pipe goes through the wall. I blocked that but he spent a long time trying to figure out a way past. But then, this smarter-than-he-looks snake surprised me by going to the other corner of the living room in search of a small opening through the wall.
Mr Burrows finally came out of his hide after over a week in there! I think he’s grown in that time, LOL. He looked a bit thin so I quickly thawed out a f/t rat for him and he took it down as soon as I offered it. About an hour later I saw him doing his typical post-feasting soak in the water bowl.
Later in the night I heard him moving around, trying to find a way out of the enclosure but that will have to wait until Saturday evening.
For the first time ever, Mr Burrows did not leave his hide last night. I hope he’s okay. It’s been over a month since his last shed so maybe he’s starting that cycle.
