LOL Sara. Don't feel bad, I told Taylor he should name him "Boots". :roflhard: Maaan.. they'd be some purrrty boots! (J/K of course)
Carmell, that's awesome that you have snakes too. I might be PMing you if I have any questions. The guy at the pet store told us to bring him back in a few weeks to be probed. He said that if you probe them too early, it could damage the reproductive organs, so they wait just to be safe.
We're not squeemish about feeding him. I've seen bigger ones feeding before, and truthfully, we all think it's very interesting, even my daughter who though the baby mouse was the cutest thing ever. lol He had his first meal (at home) tonight, and all of us (the 4 of us and my mom), stood around the tank watching wide-eyed. And me, the shutterbug, with camera in hand.
