    Here's a picture of his bump from that last feeding.

    Here's a picture from today, before feeding, he's filled out a lot! He'll be going to my friend soon, so this is likely the last meal with me. Looks like I won't have to worry about moving him out of quarantine then, he'll be at her house before his quarantine is up.

    He can handle good sized ones now, snakes are amazing.

    So cute! happy to hear he has someone who can take care of him.
    I hate the quality of reptiles at petco, the people working there have no clue what they are talking about and almost every single red tail boa i see there is a star gazer!!
  4. Any updates? This lil one take another meal yet?

    So far, it seems she'll be giving him a forever home. :) She's going to take him to her local reptile vet (don't have any for about 4 hours here -_- ) too.

    Wow, stargazing is scary. I wonder if they keep getting it from the same supplier, either way that's terrible. :(

    From the sounds of it, no :/ From what I gathered they stressed the hell out of him. "He's active and friendly"... a baby corn snake who's continually pacing around the tank and not being feisty is NOT normal >_<
  8. Okay I musta posted like right after you posted the updated pics lmao

    VERY cool! He was sure lucky you took him in! So glad to see he's doing well!!

    Sorry I missed your reply! Guess we're even now :p

    Thank you! It's rewarding to see him progress.

    He's now at 7 grams, and he just shed last night, his color pattern is very interesting now, though it probably won't really show for a few days. So I get a little keepsake :)

    If all goes according to plan, he'll be shipped to his new home on Monday, and arrive Tuesday morning.

    These first ones are from a week ago, before he shed.
    His head that gave him the "bull terrier/corn mix" title.
    I take that back, he's a rattler/cobra/bull terrier/corn mix.

    And ones from today!
    He's adorable when he's angry
    His shed next to one of Ryuk's that's about 2 months oldish. It's not terribly accurate since sheds are often stretched during the shedding process, Jor's shed is notably longer than him.
  10. Awwwww lookit the lil guy!!!!!! He's growing! And he's coloring up too! I'd end up being attached to him after all the time and effort you're putting in to him....but I'm sure it will be rewarding when he's ready if you do send him off to a new home :)

    Thanks for the update pic's!

    Is he sassy-snotty or are all snakes "angry"? :lol:

    He's sure attached himself to me, with his fangs. ;)

    Young/hatchling snakes are often very defensive and feisty but tame out as they get older. My boy Ryuk can go into Petsmart with no issues, yet he was a feisty little guy when I first got him. Nowhere near as feisty as Jor though! His new "mom" likes it though, she finds it cute/wants a snake that'll teach her cat not to poke her face in.

    He shall be going on a plan in about 3 hours, fingers crossed it all goes well.

    After having a stressful day dealing with lazy delivery men and snarky staff he arrived safe and sound.

    She was letting him slowly get acclimated to the lower temps rather than just tossing him into the cooler correct hide. (It was hotter than expected... I'm glad I decided to put that ice pack in.)
    And this is his new home, larger than it looks, he's in the tropics now. :p (She bought stuff for BPs... sooo the decor isn't corn themed by any means)

    Sorry I took so long guys! Been busy with Camp Love-A-Pet.

    Jor has been doing really well, he's settled in nicely to his new home, is eating well, and putting on weight, he's up to 9.3 grams now and 12 inches long.

    She had her vet check him over not too long ago, no respiratory infection, no mites, she said he looks good. Still too small to sex though.

    Sorry for the large size, you can see how his colors have changed in a ... interesting way. And he's got a belly now!
