Sunny Update, Adoption, Etc
(pictured with his sister for comparison)
So, Sunny’s list of quirks as he’s been growing. He eats, poops, drinks and slithers, and does all those things normal little balls do… but he’s ‘grungy’ and will never quite be normal.
He has a few bite marks from when he was on pinkies and any coiling attempts during eating mostly meant he’d snag some part of himself on his teeth. This hasn’t been a problem since he started fuzzies.
He needs to be assisted to start eating: primarily, he doesn’t understand that food needs to be turned a certain way to go down, and he’ll just chew on the food until he gives up. So I’ve gotten into the routine of picking him up, putting the nose of the mouse into his mouth just to get him going in the right direction, and put him back in his bin. He’s good to go after that, since he just needs help and isn’t refusing anything. He’s used to this and doesn’t get stressed out by it.
His mouth clicks (not his lungs, and his mouth is clear). He has a crusty buildup on his nose, along his scar and some belly scales. I had the vet check all this out, I’ve scrubbed him and picked at him and kept his tub super clean, the best we can tell is ‘it’s just Sunny being Sunny’.

If you’re still interested in having a Sunny after all that:
Send me an email at egoimago-AT-gmail-DOT-com. I’m not going to make an interview form but to consider you I need to know some stuff like:
-your experience with special needs animals, if any (this even includes minor stuff like your experience with assist feeding)
-your current/previous snake collection (photographic evidence is awesome)
-what your standard cage/tub setup is (again, photos rock)
Be aware there will be an adoption fee. He is definitely not a free animal to someone wanting a cheap pet, but I’m not gonna ask the same price as a normal BEL. I will only go over this price with truly interested parties that meet adoption requirements. He can only be shipped within the US, as weather permits, via ShipYourReptile, which will be included in the adoption fee.
Edit: His new adoptive home is in the works, thanks for the interest and signal boosting everyone!
