I took my brother to the snake shop and *accidently* made him buy a baby snake!
He chose a cute lil grey ratsnake/cornsnake cross! she's only about a month old! she's soooo teeny! reeeally reaaally teeny!
My brother's decorating his house at the mo, so I get to look after her for a week or two! heehee a baby!! she's a fiesty bugger too! escape artist extraodinair! the guy in the shop went to put her in the travel box and ooooh she didnt want to stay in!
I got to make a cute basic starter kit too to make it cheaper for my bro! I got a 9 litre really useful box and put airholes in......then used some leftover substrate....a glass rammikin for a water bowl, 2 toilet roll centres for hides and 2 scrunched up pieces of kitchen roll for fun! she likes climbing! lots! hehe i call it her *upstairs* when he climbs to the lip of the box!

.....oooh and she's called slinky!yay!! im an aunty again!!! :jump:

i'll try get some for tomorrow! she's beautiful! the guy in the shop said her colouring will change drastically as she gets older! she's pretty big too for her age! about same length as mr happy, only thinner than he is.
woah the glass rammekin is cool as a water bowl! actually get to see her mouth opening to drink!
heehee we took my 7 year old nephew with us.....he loves snakes, and he was telling the guy how he wants an amelanistic cornsnake! well cute!
what an ace snakey day!
heehee i'll get pics of both my baby and my new niece....(i love my baby more than any snakey in the world ever!) but shhhhh dont tell!

hehe i'm such a geek!

I don't have a name for my snakes. Lol.

My sister wants a turtle or terrapin that she calls a clown turtle, apparently it's at the aquarium around the corner to me, she gets the money and reads up i'll help her buy it lol. Otherwise she can bugger off!

aye i was looking at thai red mountain ratsnakes today.....cor.....corcorcor!! i'd really like a taiwan beauty........reckon a blue beauty's on the list though!

hehe, part of my bedroom, there's like a ...i dont know the word! my wall basically dents in for half the wall.....so my borther and i were plnning some nice shelving units :wink:

by the by........what would happen if i were to breed mr happy (diones ratsnake) with slinky (grey ratsnake cross corn)? i dont want to cause any problems if thats what the outcome would be! but i definately want to breed him just once out of interest! but i'd be more than willing to get another diones if need be :D

Mmmmm....Now I would have a pair of those if I had the money! The Mountian Rats that is....All the Beauty snakes are great, I had 4 Tai's at one point, all fantastic :D Im loving having the blues though....If i had the room Id have more!

I think the word you are looking for - the dent in the wall - is an alcove :lol: We dont have any of those in our house which kinda sucks because they are the perfect place for vivs or racks!

Re: the breeding, if they bred you would just get a hybrid diones x grey x corn, so long as you advertise the babies as that there wouldnt be a problem :lol: :lol: I think anyway .....:lol:

heehee we were going to sell them back to the shop for super cheap anyways. she was only £25 because of her being a hybrid (did i use the right clever word?)

yus alcove was the word i was looking for! deary me, it must be time for bed! all these words are confusing me! however....i just realised im watching an arnie film..........
