Meet Claude, My New Florida (Brook's) Kingsnake
« on: November 16, 2009, 03:32:01 PM »
Purchased him yesterday November 15, 2009. Today he ate a 3/4 grown FT (frozen, thawed) mouse. I was very proud of him!  :-D

A few pics show him eating a mouse, so if this would offend you, don't click on the link provided.

Here's a general information link about the snake: http://www.seaworld.org/animal-info/animal-bytes/animalia/eumetazoa/coelomates/deuterostomes/chordata/craniata/reptilia/squamata/florida-king-snake.htm

I just couldn't pass him up cause he's such a cool snake.

3/4 grown mouse??? That fellow could take a full grown rat and come back for more.  Although, you should teach him that snakes eat mice head first. He's backward.  :)

He's beautiful.

Annette, I'm sure Beauregard wouldn't mind him slithering on him some, I may have to catch some pictures of that.

Iddee, I couldn't get the guy to bring his price down but got him to throw in a dozen frozen mice, so his next 11 meals will be FT 3/4 mice! I was glad to see him eat, even if it was tail end first, tried telling him, he just wouldn't listen!

Keith, don't even think about it! ;)
