I love to talk to the snake on while tripping. I ate like 12 dry grams one day and I kept seeing him outside his cage., like still inside, but not haha, IDK how to describe it. I also always start to feel sorry for him for being a caged animal, and I don't take him out as often as I should because he's hard to handle and not used to it anymore. He's pretty heavy and hard to hold when he wants to get away. I feed him in the cage, so when I open the lid he always thinks he's getting fed and WILL bite.
Haha, my ex GF's daughter had some friends over when I wasn't there one time and this dumb 18 yr old kid opened it and reach right ion and got bit to hell LOL. I had warned them before not to reach in.
He bit me a few times when he was small, and a couple times when he was bigger, and he tore me up because he was holding on really tight, so I had to pry his face off my arm, also trying not to break his teeth. He doesn't usually do that, and once he knows he's not being fed he's really nice. I can grab his head without worrying, there's a certain posture('S'-position) and way he moves that lets me know if he's being aggressive.
I have different 'rituals' that I do when I'm opening up the cage to get him out to clean it or whatever, to let him know that it's not feeding time. I open it from opposite ends of the tank depending on if I'm feeding him, and when I am not i drop a pillowcase on his head for a minute and he knows not to bite.
I had an alligator when I was like 19. I got it as a baby, like 10-12 inches long and he grew to over 3 feet and got harder to handle, so I donated him. That was an awesome pet. I had built this cool ass cage, with a raised floor with a pond built in, and a filtration system I rigged up. I kept it stocked with goldfish for him. It was annoying to shit at night, cuz he'd be splashin' around, fuckin' up some goldfish. He'd also sit there at night making little duck noises, like 'eeh, eeh, eeh', if you can picture that. I had to feed him mice after he got bigger, that was fun lol. I miss the little bastard.
