Monty is constricting!
That means he's going to eat. For the first time since November 22, 2009, Monty Montgomery the ball python is going to eat!
Can you tell I'm happy?
Balls are known for going off their feed for months at a time. Slider once refused to eat for 8 months. I try not to worry, but I just can't help it. To go so long without food seems impossible to me. Yet for a python, it's normal. They don't every seem to lose weight, or energy. Not that they have a lot of energy in the first place. Pythons are like that.
Funny thing, while Monty is squeezing the stuffin' (the rats I feed them are humanely killed then frozen, so he can't exactly squeeze the life out of him--he just thinks he is) out of his rat, Slider is looking at me as if to say,
Tomorrow, big guy. You'll get yours tomorrow.
