No anoles eaten last night by T3. There are 5 anoles remaining in the cage. I am going to leave the experiment running while I am gone and will update when I return.

Update on Harper

So I did decide to try handling on Monday night. I made sure he was already out so that I wouldn't disturb him too much. Slowly and carefully I encouraged him to climb onto my hand - he did seem to prefer the branches and attempted escape, but with a little coaxing I got him to wrap himself around my fingers and just sit staring at me for a good 20 minutes. Didn't musk, didn't strike, just watched. My general rule of thumb when handling snakes is to more or less move at the rate that they move, so as not to unnecessarily startle them. Seemed to work with Harper, as when I went to put him back he didn't even try to hide immediately - he just calmly started exploring the branches in his enclosure. Better yet, his little excursion didn't even put him off food - he ate a scented pinky last night. All in all, it went quite well!

He didn't even mind a quick photo

That's great to hear, and he's definitely looking well. Good work.

Very cute photo! Glad to hear he's doing so well

I got back into town and there are 2 anoles left in t3's cage. It looks as though he is sticking to the rate of one anole every other day. I plan to feed everyone tomorrow and will update with results.

Hey Chris,

I don't want to derail your thread, but I have a question about bird-eating boas and as far as I know you are the only one doing it regularly. Would you (or anyone else on here who may feed chicks to snakes) mind having a look at my thread in General Herp Talk?

Another anole was eaten last night. I've been playing catchup and haven't had the chance to feed the others yet. Tomorrow for sure.

I'll check out your thread shortly, Helen. Thanks.
