Neat KSB I Picked Up

Posted by Abby McDufford at 1/29/2010 12:48:50 AM

I stopped by my favorite pet store last week and just couldn't resist this little guy - my first Kenyan Sand Boa. Upon inspection he is a male and weighs 111.1 grams.

In the shop I thought he was just an Anery because it was dim in there, but once I got him home I realized he is much more than that. He has zero black on him whatsoever, just two tones of chocolate. I've contacted a few KSB breeders and the general consensus is that he is actually a Ghost - Hypo Anery. How lucky is that??? There are VERY few of these in existence. I am not going to say he is definitely a Ghost until I can prove him out though, so I'm on the hunt for a female. Like I needed another breeding project!

Here are a few pics of him, he is so friggin' cute.

He is such a cool little guy.

Thanks everyone!! I've named him Graboid, from the creatures in the 90s movie "Tremors". The store I bought him from informed me that he would burst out of the sand and side swipe them, lol. He's been nothing but good for me though. He is also known as CC for Count Chocula, thanks to Bree! haha.
