He's looking good and will grow much quicker now he's on fuzzies. Dumerils are lovely snakes.
Thats what I'm hearing/watching and look like. I love how their patterning makes it look like they have a bunch of little faces .
Me and my buddy on this wicked snowy day, with flash.
Close up of his adorable head, without flash so his true colors.

All long from tip to tip he's about 2.5 feet now.
He's a gorgeous boy . I get him moved up another food size as soon as you can. The general rule is they can take food up to 1.5 times their girth, it should leave a visible bump in their belly. .
He's eating fuzzies now Has been for the last couple of feedings. We moved him up after his recent shed like 2 weeks ago.
oh and @Enn49 thanks, isn't he?!
In that case give him a couple more fuzzy feeds then get him onto small mice. Small mice will be no problem for him and they contain more calcium to help him grow.
Ah! Makes sense and thanks for the tip. It takes him and little longer to pass the fuzzies but I will definitely move him up as soon as possible
Hanging out yesterday
He's definitely looking good
What a cutie, and very nicely colored!
Thank you! My boyfriend and I had wondered if as he shed his black stripes on this body would start to fade but I am glad that he is keeping them. He's my pretty boy and makes me want to get another snake so bad haha,
Nice coloration , Was he tame when you got him ?
A friend of mine whats me to come get his California King that he hasn't had very long due to the fact that he isn't tame LOL !
I told him that you have to handle these guys to tame them ! I guess he is to afraid.
They will soon get used to being handled just begin handling a couple of days after feeding, they are very food orientated and may strike if hungry.
Um, sort of? He wasn't and still isn't nippy. I've held him about once a week (sometimes once every two weeks), but he is sassy. He will ball up as if a python, and the other day when I was holding him he shook his tail at me but he's never tried to nip or bite me. He tends to musk instead. I obtained him as a baby, just a few months old probably back in June.
The little guy my friend has is very defensive but I'm sure its because he still very small and frightened.
He snaps and snaps until you hold him for a few minutes and yes he musk also.
Probably. Its after this second shed that mine has calmed down some. I was afraid to hold him at first, but I watched a bunch of Brian Barcyzk's vlogs and how he handled and grabbed his snakes and now its easier for me and I am not so afraid of handling mine.
@Daniel Gann This is how mine prefers to be held once he's settled from trying to wriggle away:
Our milk snake did that also, once she figured out that we weren't going to eat her LOL !
Yeah, I think Kable is still in doubt about my eating of him but he's getting there. No musking this time thankfully haha. And when I put him back he went into his hide inside of under the bedding haha.
