SCYLLA is one of the most unusual pets we have boarded at Manoir Kanisha. She is a CARPET PYTHON or scientifically called the “Morelia Spilota”. We feel very privileged to care for her for a few weeks.
Originating from Australia, this long and muscular animal was a little intimidating upon its arrival on our premises.
After taking care of her for a few days, she seduced many of us by her agility, strength, and gentleness. We decided to give her some exercise periods outside her vivarium. Although Nicole was the first person to take her out of her cozy and warm environment, very soon our employees Olga and Catherine, became very at ease with SCYLLA.
It was a fascinating experience. Her skin is so soft. She was curious, animated and could stretch far away from her point of support. Because she was not afraid of us, we became more confident and let her wrap around our neck and shoulders. She never showed any signs of aggression.
As an adult, SCYLLA is feed with one defrosted frozen quail once every two weeks. She must be kept in a humid and warm environment. We verified the temperature of her environment, three times daily. We want to thank the owner who was very meticulous in providing us with a very detailed list of instructions. She sleeps a lot, enjoying the warmth and humidity of her vivarium.
