Here is Louise and Clark. We adopted these Ball Pythons last year. Their original names were Earth and Worm (lol). We think their ages are between 10 and 12 years old. Louise is 5 feet long and Clark is 4 feet long.
This is Clark squeezing a small rat we bought at the reptile store. We place the rat in a seperate feeding container and then wash our hands (don’t want the snake smelling dinner on us), then we place the snake in. My son set a timer for each snake and they are done in less than 15 minutes.
Next the snake eats his dinner, head first.
Almost gone. 🙂 Can you see how large the jaws get to swallow the rat? These are small rats, body measures about 4 inches.
