    I feed my king her first quail today. When I saw her with the feet sticking out, I had to get some pics.

    I was trying to hurry so the pics may not be very good but they are worth seeing.






    After she swallowed it I thought I would try to get a pic of her yawning to relocate her jaws. But instead she decided to try come after me. She came out of her tank and was trying to strike at me. I guess that's her way of saying thanks for the special treat.

    I was thinking it tasted more like a quail that was killed with Co2, frozen and then thawed. Either way when she was done she had a taste for human fingers for desert.

    Oh wow, great pics Ozzy. Graphic, but interesting. Have you ever heard of feeding your snakes in a separate enclosure than their living quarters? I remember reading that snakes will often get aggressive when being fed if their 'home range' is the same as their 'hunting range.' Back when I had a king snake I always put her in a rubbermaid bin when feeding, then moved her back into her tank when she was done.

    I did that wih her for awhile. I didn't see much difference. The reason she is so aggressive is because she spent her first 2 years in a pet shop. People would pick her up and drop her, tap on her cage, ect. I bought her because I didn't want to see her abused anymore. I used to go to this petshop every week to buy crickets. Every week I would watch her, and the pet store wanted to get rid of her because she was so agressive. They gave me a great deal on her, under one condition, I had to get her out of the cage myself.
