I'm not sure when the last time I shared about my snakes were, but here's a thread! (I always like taking photos of animals anyway LOL. Just sharing a few.) This is my big animal hobby besides dogs. I'm breeding my first ball python clutch this season, lesser butter x butter. It will produce more butters and lesser butters like Yukon! They've locked three times since the beginning of November so far, and I can't palpate for follicles for crap, so I'm just pairing before storms and hoping for the best.

There was someone who messaged me asking about my two male ball pythons, and if you see this, your inbox is full and I couldn't reply. But I got Cake (my first ball) from Breeder's Circle in Florida, and Yukon is from a hobby breeder through the groups on facebook. People always push ball pythons as a "beginner's snake", but I really disagree. The only thing beginner's about them is their mild temperament- but their husbandry really needs to be researched and on point, get the right equipment, or you'll run into issues with refusing to eat.

Dumeril's Boa female from 2015 (Vigil)
Aru locality green tree python from 2007 (Gem)
albino male ball python 2015 (Cake)
lesser butter male 2015 (Yukon)
butter female 2012 (Blissey)
super pastel cinnamon poss het pied female, hatched July of 2016 (Drizzle)
super pastel calico congo female, hatched August of 2016 (Togetic)

All my snakes are the most docile, adorable creatures. No creepy wrangling/strangling of animals going on here.

Anyway, boring info over, photodump here!

The most elegant of boas. She's 3 years old and about 5'8" and eating large f/t rats.



Dog face.







My loveliest elder girl. She had an accident during her last breeding, requiring surgical removal of an oviduct. So she can no longer be bred safely, and she is with me!





Just a hobo bindle LOL

They do! The females can get huge and they're very muscular! But being such a docile and chill species, they're still really easy to handle. Their growth spurt is up to 6 years old, so I'm hoping mine can be at least 7 feet in the end.

Snakes aren't slimy :D. Frogs and salamanders are slimy. Snakes just feel like. . .well, if you've ever felt a snakeskin purse/wallet/whatever, then you know what snakes feel like.
