Got a new friend over the weekend Pretty good turnout at the NARBC show and well I couldn't resist this gorgeous Argentine Boa. You can't tell but it has red and pink speckles throughout. Looks super mean looking but is probably the calmest snake I've ever handled.
Hey again! Crazy snake mama got another one. This is Sunny. She's a 7 month old pastel ball python that I picked up yesterday at the reptile show in New Hampshire. Guy said she wasn't eating well and would let her go for cheap. Brought her home set her up in a new tank (the rack system still hasn't come in. I'm about to just sleep on tanks myself! ) and she spent the night trying to escape but not being successful.
This morning I pulled her out and tried feeding her a frozen fuzzy and she was a little hesitant, but alas the supposed bad eater ate like a champ and went back to the nap I so rudely interrupted to feed her. She's gonna full of personality. I can tell.
You guys have some nice set-ups! If I ever get motivated, I want to set something up for the frogs.
That Argentine is smokin'!

I love the Argentine's eyes!! We need some close-ups!!
Nice! I was just at NARBC in Tinley Park (South Suburb of Chicago) 2 weeks ago, thats where I picked up the Argie.... I'll work on the close ups lol, I just fed her. If I can make room I may start with the Piebalds, I love them!
This is all I have for now until she digests yesterdays dinner. I'm working on my Macro camera settings but she loves licking the camera so it's difficult
You have a beautiful collection... somedayyy.... I'm so jealous of your Lucy! And that website has some pretty good deals might have to look into that. How did you get the mystic potion?! It's beautiful! Also if you don't mind me asking, how did you let the eggs incubate? Did you leave them with momma or use a system? I've been researching and I'm hoping to do my first clutch next year when I have everyone comfortable in the new apartment and I have the space for it. But wow what a collection!
So sunny has been a very VERY complicated eater since I got her. It's been exactly 1 month and she only ate twice for me (not including today). This was last week, and I'm noticing now, she's only down to eat live. Hoping to get her on at least prekilled cause live rats makes me very very worried.
Although she's the only snake I have that draws blood when she bites... So I guess maybe she'd do ok if only I were ohkay with it as well.
A few small updates, dragons are doing great, healthy and active, and growing! Turned out the one I thought was male is a female, and female is a male lol
Bowser is growing like a weed
And I'm making progress on his tank
Slowly but surely lol.
And Lately I've been wanting something else, had a void in me I found this guy, a 4-5 month old White Throat Monitor and saved him, Man, it was sad to see how he was held. This was the tank he was in
A few weeks ago I let my Plated lizard go to a good friend, Who has been itching for one for a while, It was very hard to do, but She's in good hands and I will see her often
So *unamed monitor* is in this setup for 2-3 weeks, till the savannah tank is done and will be split into two seperate tanks for a few months till they both need a bigger space
and here is a close up He's in ok shape, Healthy at least, a bit thin but that will change.
Thats the first time in his life he's had a surface temp of 140+ and he's been fed live rodents for "show" But I'm very happy with him, and can't wait to literally watch him grow in front of me. 5-7 inches a month I'm hoping He/She will crack 6ft
