On the Fourth Day of Snakes...

Posted by Sonja K. at 12/17/2014 9:57:56 AM

On this fourth day of snakes I bring you pictures of three of my Solomon Island Ground Boas (Candoia carinata paulsoni ).

This first one is a 2013 cbb male that was produced by Chris Smith. The sire in that pairing was a white one like this boy is.

Next up is a brother of his. It can take a few years before you see what their adult coloration will be. His mother is pretty high red, though, so I'm hopeful he will end up with some red, too. His pattern has just recently started to become more defined.

And last is a 5+ year LTC that I am planning on introducing a male to this weekend and hoping all goes well.

You will see in this pic, though, why I most often stick with the smaller snakes. The bigger ones just are not so easily persuaded to pose as I try to get them to, and often end up doing things their way instead.  Wink This was the best of the pics I ended up with... before she decided she had had enough and musked all over the backdrop. Yell

But isn't she pretty!? Smile


Until tomorrow....

I don't know, Sonja. Did you let her lick them? Because that is how I claim possession of things. Just ask George.

She wouldn't be surprised if I did lick them. Looks like I have some work to do.
