PostSubject: Linus ate last night, finally   Tue Nov 13, 2012 11:35 am

Linus, my Solomon Islands Tree Boa.
Been picky ever since I picked it (I respect its privacy) up. The shop said it ate, but could never see evidence of this.
In the showroom I posted a pic of the anole (supposed food for the snake) sitting on top of Linus' head, without fear.

In any case, I put a much larger anole in the tank Saturday, and Linux went and hid (its very shy and retiring) but as soon as the lights went out, BAM! Whack! Thud! Crash! Pow! Eeeee!

Linus struck and ate the anole.
I can now sleep better knowing it does, on occasion, eat.

P.S. the smaller anole is still untouched, go figure.

Sweet! It's a great feeling to see a snake eat after a fast.

I knew it had a slow metabolism, as well as being a lizard/frog eater when I got the snake. But it did concern me for some time. It's also funny watching Linux drink, the snake puts its entire head under water to drink, rather than sip from the surface like "normal" snakes.

On the plus side, Linus is very docile, rare for a tree dwelling snake (in my experience)
