Here's Ninja my 2010 nicaraguan. Was previously named Demon Horror Cow when i got her as she was an outrageously insane pogo-ing "im gunna rip your face offfff" kinda snake. With much time, patience and love she has calmed right down and has become a really lovely snake (still wouldnt trust her near my face though) but she is very handleable now and quite a sweet lady and much loved. I think her colours are really nice :)

Welllll....i got a hook, used it once, she worked it like it was part of her :devil:...shot up it etc, so that never got used again! heh heh.
Just swept in her rub in a smooth movement so she didnt have time to react....and she sorta realised over time that "yeah, this actually aint that bad" i would get her out for 10 seconds....25 whatever, just so she knew i was picking her up then putting her down so she would associate it with nothing overly scary for her. lengthened time and started touching her with my hands instead of just standing there like a petrified lemon.....she's come on leaps and bounds :)
