    I recently found out one of my new co-workers is a huge snake fanatic. So after talking snakes for several hours she mentioned that she's rehoming some of her kiddos. I said that I would love to take them but didn't have room. Just when I thought they couldn't get any nicer she and her husband offered to build me a snake rack. Which we did and I ended up taking 3 of their snakes. 4 total, but they're holding on to one until we can build an arboreal tank for him.


    Around the same time I had also purchased a jungle carpet from Nick Mutton of Inland Reptiles so I have 5 new snakes all together, bumping me up to 8 reptiles.


    Here's the rack they built for me (I did pay for the material and tubs)

    This is Akasha, she's a Viper Boa. I just love her, although she bit the heck out of me the first time I handled her at their house she hasn't even tried to bite me once since I've had her. She looks venomous, her markings, her body type, even her scales but she isn't. Definitely a unique snake! (Her body/markings reminds me of a Cottonmouth actually.)

    Then there's Snippy, who I'm thinking about renaming Rin, he's a hypo pos het ghost Colombian Red Tail. I almost didn't take him because I'm not big on Boa Constrictors but my god I adore him now. He grew on me very quickly, super nice boy.

    They also gave me a little gold dust Corn Snake named Whiskey. (Trying to think of new name ideas for him) As you can see by the pictures he is very vibrant! And he's a survivor. He had escaped with his previous owners when they lived in Montana. Despite it having snowed they found him a month later when they were mowing the lawn. And if you’re wondering why his face is messed up, he did that during his escape so your guess is as good as mine.

    The other snake is a Jungle Carpet named Sparky, I'm not sure when he'll be moving in.

    And the new baby! Dante is also a Jungle, I've been leaving him alone for the most part. But when I've had to handle him he has been super calm for a baby. Hasn't even tried to bite. I'm very happy with him so far, he's a gorgeous little guy.

    The little butt still isn't eating! Still have a few tricks up my sleeve. But he's doing well otherwise, just shed yesterday.
