Agathos can SEE!!

Well, got other eyecap off last night... Agathos was so happy to see again thathe did not even want to eat his mouse. Will try feeding again tonight. Daimon, on the other hand, was so hungry he struck at bowl before Spirit could get miceicle out of it... so he missed. 2nd try equally futile... he got towel underneath mouse as it tumbled onto floor. 3rd try he also got towel because he would not wait for us to pick it up w/tongs and elevate it...he was HUNGRY!! Solution finally was to put mouse on cardboard piece so Daimon could make a clean, unencujmbered strike..SUCCESS!!
Took Indra & Hecate out of habits as well... Indra has improved by leaps and bounds ... I am so happy. He got fresh mangoes for a treat while he watched Spirit cook dinner. Hecate did not stay out as long, she was so excited (and so small, so fast) I was afraid she'd get away & then Callie (who was watching us SO intently) would have a new game... "help chase the dragon!"
Got to …

feeding day... the new one

Well, today is feeding day for the snakes. Used to feed them Mondays, but getting that and everything else done was running way too late ... don't get home from Austin until 8pm. So we let them fast a day so we could move it to Tuesday.
Daimon has settled in quite well, gone thru 1st shed with us successfully... and having a great time in his own roomy habitat. When we saw him, he was in a 2.5 foot cube tank with 3 other pythons his size...eek! Weigh-in last night--he tipped scales @ 3 pounds, about 4 feet long now.
Agathos had not yet shed his eyecaps so we peeled one off last night, will try for other one tonight before we feed them miceicles. Not sure who was more traumitized by the event. Took a warm wet songe and coated him in some "easy shed" spray, then a warm wet washcloth over and over his head (only part that has not completed the shed process) until one eyecap ame loose. Spirit plucked it off...ouch!! He weighed in at a hefy 2.5 ounces... not quite 2 feet lo…
