      Yeah they're doing great, I'd like to rebuild the water dragon tank over the next year, and make it bigger and use some different materials

      On a Monitor note, I thought my sav was smart well, he is lol But this White throat, wow. I already have him eating off tongs, frozen pinky rats, crix, superworms and dubias, and he's doing it GENTLY Basking regularly, and not huffing and puffing at me.

      But like all monitors, they have their days. The sav one day can let me touch and pick him up, then the next be grumpy and mean business lol

      Monitors are rewarding pets

      Today I framed the front panel partially, Have to figure out how to make it all glass, and able to open/close, or remove easily. Suggestions?



      And here is bowser, looks a little chubby, but he's lean, Strictly on invertebrates, No rodents for him.

      lol, Nope.

      The past few days I've been a bit more forward with the savannah. I guess because seeing how definsive the white throat is, is made me see how far i've come with him. I've been forcing my hand in his face before and after I feed him, well a fist, NEVER offer a single finger, or pointed fingers at a monitor. I've even caught a few nips with my knuckles lol I've picked him up a few inches off his floor, It doesn't last longer then a few seconds.

      But I'm making progress! This is the first REAL interaction with him since I've gotten him 5 months ago. I've come a long way Slow and steady. He measured in at 16" today as well 10" in 5 months

      On a white throat note, His feeding response is increasing, basking often, and defecating. Humidty is a bit higher then normal, but I want to help him shed easily, as the previous setup did nothing for him. I'd hate to loose a toe or two because of stuck shed

      Andddd the water dragons are still great lol The female is bored of crickets, only accepting worms this week lol
      lol, Nope.

      Very pretty. I myself just got this mojave. The stripe is interrupted but no big bleeds and I'd say I got a deal?

      I missed owning a ball python a while ago so I finally got a corn snake today. Nothing fancy or anything, i'm just glad to get back into the snake thing. Compared to bp's, I love that corn snakes eat f/t so well. ate 2 pinkies back to back with no hesitation

      And now, perhaps the grainiest snake picture ever.

      Still thinking of a name. Is Nagini too played out?

      So I finally got the female mojave last week and boy she's mean. Hoping she chills out a little after eating.
