Well, that was a good one. Another tidbit: female snakes get larger and heavier than male snakes. that's why when you hear about a 23 foot long snake it is usually referred to as female, because they are typically the only ones to get that big.
Speaking of my snake (named Kenzie), tonight I thawed out a rat but it hadn't thawed out fast enough so I put it in a cup of really hot water.It is enclosed in a small ziplock. Anyway, sometimes when you do that the rat can split open a bit. So, I gave him the rat with a little bit of gut hanging out and he still snatched it right out of my hand in a hurry so he must have been really hungry. After he wrapped himself around it (he still goes through the motions of constricting it) he kind of left it alone. I'm going back now to check and see if he finished it. If he didn't I'll have to buy another one tomorrow and let it thaw out naturally.
