My Dumeril's Boa is super active and nails rats so hard that the tail is left hanging in the tongs throughout the Spring and Summer, but as soon as Fall gets here, she slows way down, and just kind of slowly opens her mouth and swallows her food. It's pretty funny to watch her personality completely shift as soon as October 1 arrives, than again in March.

Does anyone else have snakes that you can determine the season by?

Rubber Boas were that way. Laughing

How funny. For the first time since we brought her home, our rosy boa did not strike or constrict around her food last night. Normally she is pretty quick to eat her meal but this time, she started putting her mouth around it pretty quickly but was very slow to get her meal down. The corn snake on the other hand did not waste any time according to my daughter.

Yeah, my corn snakes never refuse a meal and are always very excited about killing the dead mouse LOL. Same with the bull snake.

I have an aged prairie rattler that goes off food about mid-October every year and gets a little cantankerous even for a prairie. She thinks she should be hibernating and I should be leaving her alone. Laughing
