Well done little LP. My 2 were an inch dls when they came 10 months ago and are now almost 6''.
I've got 2 large(ish) dogs (GSD and Husky X), but their no. 2s are nothing compared to when I walked a friend's American Bulldog. "We need a bigger bag!".Yeah...the LP waste. As my husband says about never wanting a bigger dog than our current one (17 lbs): bigger dog, bigger poo. I guess the same is going to apply to the LP. Should be a "blast" (ha) dealing with that.
I always kept my boas, even the 9 footers, on beech chip so all I had to do was use a plastic bag like a glove, pick up the poo with surrounding substrate and it was already in the bag. Many keep their snakes on newspaper but I find that very messy as you have to empty the viv to clean it. The worst I had was my Blood Python, now his were enormous, and on one occasion he'd completely filled his hide - an extra large ExoTerra cave, and it was still steaming. Luckily they don't poo as often as most snakes.I've got 2 large(ish) dogs (GSD and Husky X), but their no. 2s are nothing compared to when I walked a friend's American Bulldog.

I've also got 2 corn snakes. One, Ozzy, is a midget, barely over 3 feet and quite slender. He poops very often, but it's very small and doesn't smell.
My other corn, Draco, is about 4 ft long and quite bulky. He poos once after every meal (rat weaner or XL/Jumbo mouse once a month), but, boy, does he leave a mess. And it smells like rotten fish and eggs. The first time I actually had him out with me on the couch, I tought, "Oh, how cute he's snuggled up behind my back", only to feel a spreading wet patch and this horrible stench coming from behind me, lol.
I wonder how people with large snakes like Retics or Burms clean up. Do they call in a JCB?
