    Nice snakes! I'm more of a gecko and frog guy, but still have one nice Ball Python. Your Kenyan Sand Boa looks so happy.

    He has some shedding issues though; may need to source a different bedding for him...
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.

    Yeah, collection's still growing...

    This is Tsefan. He's a Mexican Black Kingsnake (Lampropeltis getula nigrita), and a snake that I've been pining after for a few years. Looks to be a lot better behaved (and bigger) already than my finger-nibbler Halailah...

    He's still got white patches under his chin and on his belly, extending up slightly on his sides, but as he gets older he'll develop into a solid iridescent chocolate-black snake.

    Not corn snakes, but they are close relatives; these are a pair of het hypomelanistic Baird's Rat Snakes (Pantherophis bairdi), a colorful species native to southwestern Texas and northern Mexico. They undergo a massive color change as they grow up; the adults look nothing like these juveniles. The female is Leah:

    And the male is Jacob:

    On average they're about as long (sometimes slightly longer), but more slender, than corns, tend to be very laid back as adults (these two still like to rattle tails), and depending on origin may be slate gray to brilliant orange-pink, or yellow with a silver head.

    Don't have photos yet to share of the spotted pythons, but I do of two other acquisitions. First is Gideon, the gray-banded kingsnake.

    And second, my representative for Latin America: Domhara.

    No, the photo isn't upside down . She's a Dominican mountain boa, once placed in the same genus as the rainbow boas of South America but now considered part of a sister genus from the Caribbean. As an adult, she may redden up even further.
