Cool pic!

They are fascinating to watch while eating. The lower jaw unhinges completely from the upper jaw when they swallow. Also, the lower jaw divides in two at the tip of the snout. While the snake is swallowing they push the prey down with a walking motion of the two halves of the lower jaw.

After the prey is swallowed they make chewing motions to realign the lower jaw and hook it back up to the upper jaw. I notice mine also goes for a big drink of water afterward.

I haven't read this thread totally yet, short on time, sorry. I can say this. CHECK YOUR STATE LAWS. Some states don't allow you to own certain snakes, though that doesn't stop people from selling the illegal ones, not usually a problem, but just in case. My vote is for what most people call a ball python or a corn snake. I've owned one python and five corn snakes, very easy to care for when done correctly. Handle them at least once daily when you first get them, so they aren't skittery about people.

Do they all get along? Do you have more than one in one habitat? Also, if you keep them together did you get them at the same time?

thanks!

they do get along, but i don't keep them together all the time ;p all our ball pythons are friendly to other pythons or snakes :) pursey is compatable with them too, and so is the cornsnake
not all of the snakes where bought together, these where separate by a day or 2? i don't remember, they both came from mail, and are both males ;)
