If these pictures look super awkward it is because they are. I blame the snakes. They lost it and started getting super squirmy once we stepped outside! Too many new smells I suspect.

I always knew Charlie reacts like this to the outdoors, but Snakey has always loved being outside! So strange. She got super nervous. I was struggling just to keep them calm and in view of the camera.

Snakey and Charlie, my two biggest blood pythons currently. :D

Where did u get those jeans

If you have questions

Hey there new people! I noticed I got a lot of new followers over the snake thing, and I wanted to let everyone know I’m always happy to answer your blood python and short-tail python questions be it about care, handling, etc! :D I know a bit about various snakes, but I am most experienced with those.

If you please though, ask them over at my talking blog where I talk about reptiles and fish. Sometimes I talk about my life too… I was about to say my life is boring, but I saw THREE wild bears last weekend so no, not boring. Totally awesome.

Metal Monkey Exotics has a really nice chart showing blood python health sizes on their blood care sheet if people are still giving you shit.

This one might be it, it’s the one I have saved at least: image

has there ever really been an obese snake? :O feel bad for the poor dear, as I don’t think it’d be able to really slither right with that much weight, correct?

I think this is about the fattest I’ve ever seen. I see A LOT of fat ones, really unfortunately obese animals.

Btw I blocked out the guy’s face because he isn’t the one who got the snake in this condition. Like, look how tiny the head is compared to that giant body.

Also, Ruby was really fat. She slugged out her clutch she was so fat. She was put on a diet after this pic was taken.

My snake, stetched out alongside the wall so he can size up the door to eat it.

But no, seriously— snakes look so weird when they’re stretched out.

I’m going to be harpooned for this, but this snake is obese.

That’s why it looks so weird! It would be cool to see a post all about obesity in reptiles or birds, I imagine it’s difficult or some owners to recognize. 

If you refer to my various posts on my blog in response to theexoticvet’s inaccurate response, you will understand that my snake is NOT obese and is NOT overweight, and that he is completely healthy. Thank you.

Okay I’m going to reblog this to my main account instead of my “talking” account like usual because I feel this is pretty serious and should be spread.

I’ve seen people starve their bloods ALMOST TO DEATH because a vet told them it was obese.

I have had 2 out of 3 vets tell me my “ball pythons” were obese after I already said they were bloods and short-tails. They just didn’t know what bloods were. No I don’t think you should trust a vet automatically, they won’t always know what they’re talking about.

I’m seeing a lot of comments saying, “Just trust your vet!” and I disagree. You need to make sure the vet actually knows what they’re talking about. A lot do not.

Simca is healthy. :)
