New pictures of Octane taken just now. He is going into shed. He will be moved to a bigger tub or, if he can handle it, an AP cage with thick tempered glass doors that lock.

Goodness, he's gorgeous! Thanks for the update I've heard really good things about the Animal Plastics cages - they seem really nice!

Yeah, I'll reword my part about the venomous to more accurately reflect my feelings... Given I had the training and experience to work with a venomous reptile, I probably would under the right circumstances. And at some point I'd like to learn how to safely work with them (for work - the joys of studying to be a conservation biologist), but pigs'll fly before I keep one as a "pet" in my house; given the security measures I've taken with my Argentine boa constrictor, it'd be insane to keep a hot. Until then, I'll stick to admiring them from a safe distance and keep to my boids.

It's just sad how many people have no idea what they're getting into when they pick up that little hatchling boa/burm/iguana/etc and then do something stupid like release them into the wild. Makes those of us who do keep them responsibly look bad and causes laws that really hurt responsible keepers - one of these laws is one ammendment away from making it a federal offense for me to take my boa to the vet because it's across state lines. Take note - it takes five minutes for me, living in Illinois, to get to an extremely capable herp vet in Iowa. Were I to have to go to a vet in Illinois to comply with this law, I'd have to drive at least an hour to get to a vet of the same caliber.

It's funnier in Enochian.

xD we had wood boards that had a hole for a handle, and a shield for your hand so she wouldn't snatch your fingers. It was awesome xD

Your snake is so pretty :3 I actually kinda miss having a snake. Except our escape artist who PMS'd.

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

He's beautiful! I Just Love snakes! My friends call me snake grl, Lol. I'm not able to have one though cause my mom doesn't like them and my grandma (who lives with us too) would freak out if we even considered bringing one in the house. Lol. Love your pictures!

Rest in peace little Pizza. You were a true miracle who is dearly missed and will be forever loved by all who knew you. 2 years 10 months of love, life, and weirdness with the fish who just kept on living!
