    I'm having a little situation. It all started with a good idea. As most of you know I have a snake named Lucy. Lucy is short for Lucifer for obvious reasons. Long time memebrs here may remember what Lucy is most famous for. The after dinner attack about a year ago, and her favorite predinner activity, decapitating quails. Anyway she is extremely aggressive. She's so aggressive that it's a challenge to change her water. I normally use the hand above the cage to distract her method. It works pretty good. Tonight I had a better idea. I would grab a pair of my shorts throw over her, grab the bowel while she was trying to find her way out. It worked I grabbed the bowl, washed it and filled it with water. I knew by the time I got back she would have found her way out and be ready to get a taste of my hand for the mean trick I just pulled on her. But she was still wrapped up in them. I replaced the water bowl and grabbed the shorts from the tank. I don't think I can explain what happened. I'll just show the pics.















    She still has them and refuses to let go.

    And no jokes about king snakes favoite food.

    Well, there's really no such thing as a domestic snake; no species is more than a dozen generations removed from the wild. Some species are just popular pets because they're naturally dociles (boas, corn snakes) compared to more agressive species (amazon tree boas, coachwhips).

    As far as Ozzy's situation, the solution is booze. Alcohol irritates the lining of their mouth, and they'll let go instantly. Rubbing alcohol, listerine, or, lacking those, strong alcoholic beverages all work. I've had to use listerine once in the past to remove a 12 foot burmese python from my hand, and it worked wonderfully. Just splash it in their mouth, and they should let go instantly (and be very, very pissed off as a result).

    I know that trick, but I figured since she had the shorts and not me, I would just wait her out. It worked, about 20 mins ago I reached in and grabed the shorts.
