Default My Indigo Snake has grown

Here's Jonesy, one of my my indigo snakes. He has grown quite large over the last 5 years. The pipe in the picture is 6'3"

I have put by Boa in the picture for comparison. I've also put a picture of my Yellow Anaconda, unfortunately he wouldn't line up with the pipe.

Drymarchon translates from Greek as ruler or lord of the forest and I must say he really has become impressive.













I was telling Jonesy last week that the snake classifieds are jam packed full of surplus Royals. He thinks they're really tasty and he said if anyone on RFUK has any excess Royals they can't shift, could they please pop them around. He thinks the pretty colored ones look particularly appetizing.
