On the Eleventh Day of Snakes...

Posted by Sonja K. at 12/24/2013 2:02:01 PM

On this eleventh day of snakes, it is also Christmas Eve!

Today I have two species that fall under the Liasis genus.

First up is my yearling Savu. She is in the midst of her ontogenetic color change. This is the point where it's often described that they look pixelated. For those unfamiliar with the species, when they come out of the egg, they are a shade of orange and as they mature, brown and black scales begin to dominate and then as adults they are a solid deep brown to black color. Another neat aspect is that their eyes also change and become white as adults.

Next up is Ozzy, one of my younger Olive Pythons.

He was quite comical when I placed this large ornament with him.

He peeked from behind it...

And then he had to meticulously check it all out. (Shiny!)

He then paused in front of it.

Began to embrace it...

And then claimed it as his...


Hope all that are celebrating have a wonderful Christmas Eve!

The peeking around the ornament shot is my favorite. What a cutie.
