She's growing too fast! Anyhow, I finally got a semi-decent digital camera, so here are some pics of my sweetie.
In case anyone's wondering, the little sleeping bag and pillow she has were her Christmas present from my mom. She made them by hand. Vega loves them. She goes in and goes right to sleep with her head on the pillow. It's adorable.

Snakeskin Leather at Coach
Saturday, February 2nd, 2008
Once the importation and inter-state transport has been banned, there will be a rapid exodus of breeders of these species, and eventually they will disappear from the marketplace along with a significant number of businesses and jobs. Pet owners will feel the pinch as dry goods suppliers and caging manufacturers stop producing products for that segment of the hobby, and eventually it will be impossible to obtain a new pet boa or python.
Here's an already ongoing discussion of the ban on bp.net

Can it sting me with it's tongue?
Inspired by a number of questions I've gotten lately (or the sheer number of questions) by people completely unfamiliar with snakes, I've started compiling an FAQ for the most commonly asked questions. Since my website is as much about snake PR as it is about blue beauties, I'm a bit surprised at myself for not doing this sooner.
( Here's some of the questions I've come up with/remembered/have had suggested so far.Collapse )
I'd really appreciate some input here, I'm sure a lot of you have gotten certain questions and misconceptions about your animals from non-snake people more than once! Which ones are the most common? I miss any big ones?

My research so far seems to lean in the direction of Texas Toad, but I wanted to check with you guys, who probably know way more about the topic than I do. Any info about sub-species, habitat, feeding, etc, would be greatly appreciated.

Pics of my leopard gecko, Vega!
Emerging from her hidey rock:
ON her hidey rock:
She won't eat unless I feed her from a spoon:
She will, however, play in her food dish:
She also types the majority of my LJ posts. :p :
A couple of decent pics of the entirety of her:
Vega loves her climbing wood:
She does not love kisses from her mommy:
A couple of close ups with my roommate holding her:
"That's IT! No more pictures!":

New Little Buddy

he hasn't been sleeping on his heaty pad and has been cold, but I picked him up today and he was on his pad under the news paper in his large tank. I looked at him and he's rather pink on the underside of his belly.
Why is he pink? I'm scared shitless he burned himself.
the heated pad doesnt feel that warm but im scared because Ive never seen this pinkish redish color on his tummy before.
I'm thinking about taking him into work tomorrow to have him checked out [i work at an animal hospital and one of the doctors is a reptile specialist].

UK Breeders Recommendations
Of course, I would fall in love with a rare, expensive and not available near me snake ((Black Eyed) Leucistic Ball Python)!
But I'm also interested in getting a Rainbow Boa, probably a Brazilian or Columbian though open-minded to them all.
Can anyone recommend any UK breeders/shops for Rainbow Boas?
VBB in the SE needs a good home.
It's ~6' and hasn't been handled enough. Somewhat aggressive but was showing signs of simmering down.
Drop me a line at my gmail, blue.gorgon(at)gmail.com, if you're interested or know someone who is and I'll get you in touch with her. I'll add more information to as I get it such as location etc.

All exotic wildlife, venomous reptiles, crocodile and water monitors, and crocodilians are now illegal in Washington state(or will be starting January 1st of next year).
Anyone with proof on paper that they legally owned the animals prior to the bill being in effect will be able to keep the animals for the duration of their lives, but it still royally blows.
Fuck you, Washingtion.
I mind as well live in fuckin' California.
