Sorry for being inactive. Been busy lately, preparing for my out of town work in June. I needed to sell a lot of my pets in the process. Will get them all back once i return.

Before selling magpie's other siblings off, i needed to take some vital measurements and physical check-up first just for the record :D

Here's magpie's younger siblings; Robin, Jay & Cardinal (cardy's shy :p)




Roughly 6 inches high from talons to ear tufts :D




My new temporary personal fave, Cardy (short for cardinal)




An eye for an eye




Guess who's lunch for today?! (and yes, this is payback for the chick lol)
I'll be skipping the gory part since i still love snakes! :p




Bye cute little owls! I'll see your new replacements by September :(

Snakes are the prey.
Those are my feeder for my owls, hedgehogs and coralsnakes :)

really?? owls can kill snakes??
Those snakes rarely exceed 3 feet plus they're as thin as pencils. They definitely hone the owls' hunting skills (inside my house lol).

I don't feed it to them regularly but it's about the time of the month that they do.

The owls tear the snakes apart, piece by piece lol

So as to not cause any confusion, the snakes in the pic are the food lol

And magpie is like, 'Aw hell no!' :p
