After a mix up at the shop last week, I've finally got my BRB. Here's some pics:





They were really good about it, had realised the mistake and were about to call me, and swapped the snakes over at no extra cost, even though they usually sell the BRB's at 180, and I paid 95.

It's female, about 12 weeks old, 20 inches, and I've named her 'Rossi'.

I might pop down and have a look, though might have to wait a bit before getting another one, .

A-town are OK, they've sorted it, so I'm happy now. Apparently, they had the CRB and a BRB come in at the same time, and they got mixed up. It had only been in the shop a short time before I got it, and they were really busy, honest mistake I think.

That's more like it! :D

Mixing up BRB's and CRB's is nothing - a while back, the bloke at my local shop put a 5ft "snow corn" in a viv with several other corns, then realised a day or two later it was actually an albino cali king! :shock:

My current set up is descibed in this thread : http://www.reptileforums.co.uk/viewtopic.php?t=14942&highlight= ,

As it says, I'm using a flat exo terra, but wish I'd gone for a contico box, as the lid on the exo terra let out humidity, and I have to cover with a towel. Looking to get a small viv in the new year.
