In Reply to: Nice pic. Small eye for juv Taipan, is that normal ? np posted by rbc on October 05, 2002 at 18:35:11:
No you are correct, this isn't a normal specimen. He was born blind and therefore has smaller eyes. Very observant of you I might add! ;-))
Because of this he wasn't going to be sold to anyone and after seeing him, I decided to give it a go and bought the poor critter.
Took me a few months to get him to feed on his own, but nowadays he takes hopper mice without any problems.
Only problem is, that he is lightning fast if and when he smells food, and because of that goes like an out of control rocket through the enclosure to get to it.
Which means that being blind, he sometimes (almost) comes out of the enclosure while doing this.
So I will have to find a solution for this in the future. ;-))
