My Little Python:Stripie meets a Spider-Tail



WOAH! What's that?







It's my tail.





But it looks like a spider!








It's my tail.




But it doesn't look like a tail!









It's my tail, kid!


Little Python fact:The snake Stripie meets is a spider-tailed viper, a species that uses the spider-like growth on its tail to attract its prey, which think the tail's a spider, come close, and get eaten.

We went to Repticon


We met some friends!



Pinkie Py(thon), the My Little Python ambassador, did too!
Hmm...is that me?

I just can't wait to be king (snake!).


We also distributed business cards, sold a few my little pythons for CHET, and took votes on the favorite Python. As usual, Stripie won.

It was a great day!

Serpentville Science Fair:6




And what do we have here?





This is my study on how much bread rises when put in the oven for different times. The first one was 1 minute, the second was 5 minutes, and the third was 10 minutes.







Let's see...everything's your own work, nothing blew up, fermented, ate me, or splashed, it's not mold or a baking soda volcano, your display board has what I required...that one wins!

Serpentville Science Fair:5





And what do we have here?






This is my project on how well my pet rat, Speedy goes through a maze. Let me demonstrate...SPEEDY? Where are you, Speedy?





Aww, he's so cute! Can I keep him?








SPEEDY!







I'm sorry but I have to say...fail. Live animals are not permitted, let alone live animals escaping!






Oh! I didn't know that. Sorry.

Serpentville Science Fair:4



And...erm...what do we have here?







This is my project on whether different types of fertilizer effect the diets of carnivorous plants.








(from inside plant) FAIL!






Drop him right now, Audrey.









It's an interesting premise, but your plant almost ate me!





Sorry about that! I didn't realize that MegaFlower fertilizer would effect Audrey that way.

Yes, we're going to Repticon!






Yes, the My Little Pythons are going to Repticon Memphis. Stop by the Coalition of Herp Enthusiasts of Tennessee Table to take home your very own Stripie Snakie, Tangerinei, Caramel Apple, Sweet Grapevine or all four in exchange for a donation to CHET! We hope to see you there!

How to Spread #Pythonlove and help the My Little Pythons!



How to be a Python?

You can be part of the My Little Python team and spread #Pythonlove. Here are some ideas that we use to help increase tolerance of snakes via the power of cute.

11)      Take part in local reptile events. Petco stores do several of these a year. If you have a friendly, calm reptile, bring it. It’s hard to be scared of a snake when it’s being held by a kid. Don’t force your snake on anyone, but just be there, showing them it’s OK.

22)      Distribute My little pythons at events where kids are, along with the blog URL for My Little Python and our social media links. If you have a local herp advocacy group or rescue, give their URL and contact information, too.  Any snake is OK as long as it’s cute and friendly looking, not scary.  The ones we use the most are these Snake Bendables . We have also found inexpensive colorful snakes after Halloween, and Wiggle Snakes are a perennial favorite.

33)      If you’re part of a group, host reptile/amphibian themed events, where kids get a chance to do activities and learn a little bit about reptiles and amphibians, especially snakes. If you have a pet snake, this is a chance to show them that the snake isn’t scary, as well as to increase understanding of the conservation issues involving snakes and other reptiles and amphibians. From Save the Frogs! day in April to World Snake Day in July, there are plenty of opportunities to teach and inform others.

44)      Get involved with local reptile education groups and rescues. They can always use more good herp ambassadors.

55)      And, last but not least, share your friendly snake art, song parodies, videos and other creations with us at My Little Python-you can tweet them with @Mylittlepython, post them to our Facebook page or to the My Little Python blog comments, or e-mail them to Alli_Draggy@comcast.net. We can always use more Python fans and creations!

Remember, one kid, one comic, one plastic snake=a better world for snakes everywhere!

Happy Valentine's Day from the Little Pythons!



I have 23 valentines.








I have 19 valentines.








A little help here?






Challenge: Help Sweet Grapevine find out how many valentines she has! Count her individual cards, and email your number to me at alli_draggy@comcast.net, comment here, or do it on our Facebook or Twitter!

Snakes! In a USPS office!

Hi. I mailed out some Little Python toys to kids around the United States in regularly-sized envelopes, and some of the snakes slithered out during the shipping process. Here is an example of what these snakes look like. If you see them, do not panic! Pick the snake up and take it home. It might be a bit stressed, because, how would you feel if you were stuffed in an envelope and mailed? However, with care, it can be a loving companion. Just a notice!

The Little Pythons that went to a Valentine's Day party

You might remember my post on My Little Python Valentine ideas, or the Facebook post of the cutest snake pit ever. With the Snake Bendables threaded through the Snake Valentines from Oriental Trading, I had My Little Python valentines! The bendables also had tags showing the blog URL and CHET, the herp organization I support. I gave them out at my homeschool group Valentine's party and the kids absolutely loved them! I saw just about 101 uses for the Little Pythons! Figure, we had chopsticks, sword fighting, biting, bending, scratching off cards, and more with the Little Python toys! Either way, the Little Pythons love getting love from kids, so it was a win for them.

My Little Python:Seeking fan art

Do you know what we crave in the winter? Well, yes, cuddles, peace on Earth, and hot chocolate, but also fan art. We would love it if any of you lovely people would get us some shiny drawings! All that's required is the URL of the image, how old you are, and who you drew. You can post it on the comments here, on our Facebook page, on our Twitter feed, or it can be emailed to our creator at Alli_Draggy@comcast.net.

A My Little Python animated short

Enjoy! It's not an animated series and toys in every Target, but it'll do.

Serpentville Science Fair:3




And what do we have here?







This is my project on how much water splashes when different objects are dropped into it. As an example...(ball splashes into water)






SPLOOSH!


 A very interesting project, however, I would have to say fail due to the large splash.






Oh, okay. It was just a project I wanted to do. I didn't realize the splash would be that big!
