Acquired: Pet store
Posted Jan 15, 2015
Jack was the Carpet Python of my housemate. I really didn't enjoy it in the house. Jack was over 13ft long and was still growing when my housemate moved out. Further, Jack smelt terrible. Maintaining his habitat appeared difficult and he would not eat his rats unless they were animated which meant trying to agitate them like puppets so that he would show interest. This lead to his near escape several times.
Overall, I would only recommend this type of pet to somebody who will not find themselves in a communal living situation because I would not like to live with somebody who owns a Carpet Python again.
