The Countdown Continues... 2 days 'til Christmas

Posted by Sonja K. at 12/23/2012 1:23:16 PM

Today features a little girl that I simply adore. It is Carina, an African White-lipped Snake, aka Herald Snake (Crotaphopeltis hotamboeia).

She has grown so much in this past year!

This was her in one of her Christmas pictures last year:

This is her this year. Enjoy!


Until tomorrow...

She's pretty! Kind of looks like a little viper.

Thanks! Yep, she does because she is rear-fanged... I love that look, and since I will never own hots, I will continue to enjoy the times she shows me that look - which isn't often anymore, at least not in handling her normally.

She went up to a hopper mouse last feeding. Last year at this time, I was excited about her finally being ablt to take a whole one day old pinky.

She was my favorite picture from last year & I think she is again today! Sqqqueeee!!! I'd love to get one with red lips, but i'd settle for white lips. They don't appear to be easily found for sale, sad

Thanks all!

Niki - I had found a male and paid to pick him up at Tinley - unfortunately a worker at the company resold him before the show.. I was so bummed - it was even another CBB one! Exports from Tanzania are currently closed, too, and have been for more than a year. Who knows when / if they will open again. I would love a red-lipped, too, and want to find a mate for her badly.

Hmmm, I have a friend who has one, about the same age as yours. Would be funny if he bought the other one!

The snoman picture - best!!

She has SUCH a cute little face!  I just want to pinch those cheeks (okay, not really... but kinda) and give her smooches.  Love the irridescence too.  What it must be like to walk through your collection...
