Default New species found.... Kenyan Tree Boa!

Went to check on the Kenyan Sand boa today and found him like this!



He's always liked climbing his plant every now and then but never seen him round the bulb before. I'm not sure he quite new how to get down as he was just sat there He has funny little habits.

Also a reason why you need a bulb guard no matter what the species i'd say! (don't worry this bulb isn't actually connected up)

Hehe, some snakes don't quite understand how they're supposed to behave do they? If I were you I'd grab some photos of burrowing snakes to show him

glass bulbs should be guarded whether they are wired up or not. What if he crushed and shattered it. Could be nasty. Jus' sayin'
