Looks like we’ll be picking up our little corn snek on Thursday. Mike has been looking through all the different morphs, learning proper husbandry, figuring out enclosure ideas, and going through a list of possible names. I also taught him how to do the zombie rat dance and he learned how to feed Kyril and Dracarys.
He will be assimilated.
Looks like I’m taking in a new animal after all! Glacier Rodents always has a raffle at the expos to win a corn snake and some feeders and it sounds like my boyfriend won the little babu! It’s funny because he’s slowly been drawn into my hobby, enjoying the expos and learning about my animals. Yesterday he was even talking about getting a hoggie or corn someday. Looks like the snake fates have hooked him. Good thing I already have a Q tub set up. I’ll have pictures once we pick up the little bugger. :P
So while we were at the expo we walked by a mom helping her kids pick out a snake and I overheard this.
Mom: “Okay, let’s go give daddy nightmares!”
Kids: *in unison* “Yaaaaay!”
I managed to walk away without any animals. It was a close call since I found some nice clowns, but they didn’t quite have the pattern I was looking for. Also almost caved on some albino hoggies and Dodoma flame sand boas *le sigh*.
I did manage to get some really nice hemostats and picked up my feeders from glacier rodents. I also (finally) joined the northwest herpetological society and opted to be a foster herp parent. The next meeting is on the 19th and will be a tegu talk, yay.
Ah man, I just saw that suntec on Kingsnake! It must have looked amazing in person. Damn, life was so much easier when I wasn’t aware of boa morphs.
Noooo! Finding motley aztecs on Fauna and Kingsnake is breaking my heart. I don’t really want to get more animals this year unless they’re for breeding, but it’s so tempting. Really though, I need to finish building the new rack design, grab another Proline, and figure out which incubator I want.
Watch, I’ll just end up getting animals so I can make my own motleytecs just so I can have a pile of them to myself. I can’t even explain why I like them so much, but augh, I do! Aztecs in general are on my “get” list.
