Introducing Calypso :)

Posted by blind at 11/13/2016 4:17:53 PM

Well, after some months of missing having snakes, here I go...

Here is Calypso, a baby grey rat snake.
I love her eyes! They are silver. They are huge. They are cute.
For the moment she doesn't trust me at all, but it's hard to trust someone when you're 45cm long.
She still ate for me tonight. :) For the moment I will leave her alone until she's settled.

I am still a bit nervous (worrying and hoping everything will be allright), because she is small and new.

I will also get Checkmate's brother this week, also an Okeetee corn snake. I figured that with 2 snakes, if one is in shed, I can go handle the other.

I initially wanted to get a black rat snake, but they didn't have any at the expo, and I kinda fell in love with Calypso's little googly-eyed face :)

I still miss Checkmate though. Every snake is unique!

D'awwwwww! I feel compelled to boop the snoot!

Actually, I didn't do much booping yet... She has a tiny snoot and is still scared of me, so I don't want to touch her head too much.
Letting her explore is fine, but if you do sudden movements in front of her, or try to pick her up, she flinches. So I'll wait until she trusts me more before doing a boop. :)
