This slithery girl lives in her own little jungle and spends most of her time sleeping or curling up in her pond. In the wild, she would tighten her coils around her prey to squeeze the breath out of them before unhinging her jaw to swallow them whole... yummy! Here, however, she needs no such exertions as she gets breakfast (rabbit or guinea pig!) in bed.
