My two horses were not really rescues but from Owners who could no longer care for them.

Fish....we live in an apartment complex that doesn't allow pets.

I have a 29 gallon fresh water tank with Zebra Barbs, Sunny Barbs, and a 6" pleco.

Greenbird76------

I have 2 Ball Python's.
Both are about 3 1/2'------ they will not eat dead rodents.
Both still eat fat mice. I change up their eating.
I have them on random (like natural) feeding.
If they go over 3 weeks with out me feeding them - I will only feed each a single mouse.
Then wait 5-7 days then give them multiple mice.
I had a Ball Python years and years ago that was about 5 1/2' (max size).
It too, would not eat dead rodents.
I feed that one 2- 3 medium rats per month.
Had to get the rats dizzy before feeding. Otherwise, the rats would bite and chew at the snake if the strike/constrict wasn't full on.
Really strange how docile the Ball Python's really are.
I actaully work in veterinary.  Do not overfeed your snakes.  They do very well a feeding every 3-4 weeks.  The wierd weather up here has mine all screwed up.  He is usually hibernating right now and doing so for about 4-5 mos a year.  But he is still stirring.  I go through periods where he will not eat dead stuff and I will by no means feed him a live 250 gram rats- The snakes skin is very frail and will tear easily and they are very prone to infection.  I have fed him a few large mice this winter but nothing more.  spring is around the corner and so is the humidity and that is when his appetite should change again.  Ball pythons are such fussy animals when it comes to feeding.  I really did not want a snake, but we in the vet industry really have no place to put them and they usually end up being euthanized.  I rescued mine from a friend who could no longer keep him.  That was 12 years ago and he was only about 15 inches then.  I keep my snake in a 75 tall which you see in the picture.  They also can be great escape artists so keep your cage or enclosure latched well

My 19-20 year old cat is named Mashapaug after the town she was found in by my little  sister in 1992 or 1993. Hence  the age discrepancy.  lol .  names always have some sort of significance. IMO

I have a 5-6 foot ball python.  Exotics are cool.  My snake should be around for another 20 years or so.  My brother had a Rosy Barb Tarantula when we were growing up.  It was all black with these tiny red hairs or barbs all over it.
