But his name is now Striker.
Good thing snakes don't really care about names.
Even though Striker has not been here for a week yet, and he was fed at the shop the day we brought him home, Mo decided Striker was hungry today. This was based soley on Striker's behavior.
And Mo was right!
I think Striker is getting a bit more exercise than he did in the shop.
I agree with Gosh that snakes don't really bond with people but Mo has definately bonded with Striker.
Mostly I'm fascinated by the calming effect Striker has on Mo. It's really something, I've never seen anything quite like it.
It's going very well. Snakes are very easy to take care of!
We've been through a few names. I pretty sure it's Strangles now. That paints a lovely picture, doesn't it?
Strangles is getting big -- about 2 feet long now.
