Letting my Mocha girl out for a stretch. (The birds from @my.parrot.garden are ALL covered & asleep!) She’s a curious thing. She kept moving my coffee table books around. πŸ˜„ So sweet. Remember when she was such a tiny baby? 😩 Now... 786g Still not full grown.
I was real freaked out about snakes until I met my son’s ball python then he went with me to adopt Mocha (she was 4 months old then). Mocha is gentle and docile. So tame ... and she teaches me every day that looks can be deceiving.

Happy belated 1st Birthday, Mocha! πŸŽ‰ (Hatched Sept. 20, β€˜16).
I can’t believe I’ve had Mocha a year already! I got the bitty baby snek when she was barely 4 months old weighing 132 grams. She’s really grown!
She’s so gorgeous and, dare I say, sweet. Yes, sweet. Meaning; tame and patient. And she has a gentleness about her. I can’t explain it. She’s very calming to me. I just love her.
Here’s her weight chart FYI:
WEIGHT CHART:
Jan 28 - 132g
Feb 15 - 128g
March 1 - 143g
March 22 - 187g
Mar. 29 - 194g
May 11 - 250g
May 23 - 266g
June 27 - 347g
Sept.3 - 437g
Dec. 11 - 722g
Jan. 13 - 783g
I didn’t measure her length but one time 3 months ago because... it’s hard! Try stretching out a curious, wiggly snake. πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚ It didn’t go well.
Happy bday, my pretty girl. ❀️

Old photos & vid - Just reminiscing. I don’t notice daily growth, but when I look at pics and vids from 6-8 months ago I really see it.

Excuse the horrible selfies, they are not my jam, but I’m trying to show my Mocha 🐍 on a size scale. She’s 722g and 3ft long.
Today we’re going up a size in her feeding. πŸ€πŸ™ˆ When I got her at 3 months old she couldn’ t even make it all around my neck at all, she was so tiny. She’s so beautiful and sweet. #pastelballpython

I just realized today that Mocha turned 1 πŸŽ‰ on Sept. 20! πŸ™ˆ Mother of the year. Sorry, baby.
Mocha is switching caves. She goes between her warm side and cool side. I also just upgraded her little water bowl for a corner pool. 😁 Oh, and a random pic of Harley because he was watching me work and climb d higher so he could see better lol. #nosey

Mocha 🐍 and Pepper 🦎Housewarming party in their new condo πŸŽ‰
They each took right to their new enclosure, no stress, no problem.
The lock is to satisfy my mother. She thinks Mocha will get out in the middle of the night and come attack her in her bed when she visits. πŸ™Š

Mocha is gearing up for another shed. She hasn't eaten in 2 weeks, her eyes get milky and her color dulls. She just weighed in at 437g.

LOL πŸ˜‚ Mocha is so curious about my phone case (it's very colorful). She sure is wide awake today. Usually she doesn't start moving around until evening.
And she just ate about 36 hours ago so I'm (nearly) positive she's not hungry.
Curious scardy snek!! πŸ™ƒπŸ˜±

Aww Mocha. That face 😍 My camera got all wonky... but it's rare that she shows her face this early in the day. Went to change her water and she got curious. 😊 Sneaky snek.

My little Mocha has been having a little too much fun while Mama's been away. πŸ™„
My poor house/pet sitter πŸ™ˆ The very FIRST day she was in charge Mocha was MIA... GONE! Because I forgot to latch her enclosure since I was in a tizzy leaving for my trip. #oops
Mocha was missing for 3 days, house sitter looking high and low for over an hit each day (thank God she loves Mocha) but she finally found her behind the dryer. They had to move the entire machine to get her out.
Mocha was a little cold, a little stressed, but a whole lot glad to be placed back into her enclosure because she was so thirsty. She drank for a long time and ate a few days later after she calmed down.
Wow. Mocha causing drama who knew? πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

I get asked... Question: How does Mocha know the difference between you reaching in her enclosure with your hand to pick her up/handle her or that you're going to feed her? How does she not confuse the two and bite you accidentally?
β€’
Answer: From day one I trained Mocha with these long feeding tongs that have soft, red silicone tips on them.
Before I fed I always wet over 2-3 times while her meal was thawing (I don't feed live) and clapped them together a few times to make the noise she would come to learn as her "dinner bell" πŸ”” and I touched her with them in her cave. Cool to the touch as opposed to my hand.
Then I would hold her meal with them and let her strike.
I've never wavered on this. It didn't take long for her to learn that when I reached in with my hands I would be taking her out or touching her or changing water etc.
Its funny because now when she hears the tapping and sees the red, boom, she's out so fast! She's ready to roll. Where's my supper woman? And I don't put my hands in after that.
If Mocha doesn't hear/see tongs she's a lazy slug and won't budge. I have to go in and get her out of her cave. The girl is smart. She's always listening.
Clear, consistent behavior makes the process easy for her to understand.
Hope this helps. This is what works for me, but you do you. ✌🏼 ~ Brenda

Mocha went in and explored it a little before I put it in her enclosure. There's plenty of growing room. πŸ‘πŸΌ
