We went to the library and learned all about the snakes in Texas. The library owns this Ball Python, Rocksanne. We found out that she is 12 years old, won't eat anything except for freshly killed gerbils, and has been living at the library for 9 years. Because she will only eat freshly dispatched of gerbils and they can't get them right now, Rocksanne hasn't eaten in 3 weeks.

Did you know that snakes don't have eyelids but rather scales? They shed their eye scales when they shed their skin.

I love learning new things..thank for the eyelid info :) Rocksanne looks super cool. My inlaws had a snake for years..only ate fresh live mice.
LOVE the look on Freya's face :)
