Just thought I would share some photos of my (and my fiance’s) snake collection. Hope everyone enjoys the photos! (captions below)

This is Dexter, my 2010 female. I know Dexter is a weird name for a girl but at first we assumed her sex was male until a probing told us differently lol. We got her back in November and she loves to chill on the bed with me and watch netflicks.

An experimental photo I took to see if a white backround would help me capture her coloring better… it kind of worked…

Enjoying a nice soak in the sink closing to being in shed.

Really nice underbelly/ventral area shot I got. Her coloring is so neat!

Feather Stone, our newest addition. He is a boa morph known as a Motley he is also het for albino which (for those who do not know) means if he is paired up with an albino female we will get some ‘normal’ motleys and some albino motleys… in a nut shell anyways lol. Oh and this photo was taken by his breeder not myself.

A shot of his tail, the coloring is way off because we have a red heat lamp in our QT area but you get the general pattern.

This is another photo from his breeder, they are a lot better than my phone photos that’s for sure.

Checking out his new (well new/temp) digs =)

Coming out of his hide away =P he pushed his water over there as well. What is it with my snakes always trying to re-arrange their homes?

Sandy, my Fiancé’s Kenyan Sand Boa. She really is such a mellow easy going snake. The breeder told us her coloring is called Lemon but being that she (and her sister) are our first Kenyans I am not sure if it is really necessary to include when describing them.

Sandy when we first got her back in November! Man has she grown…


A picture trying to capture how yellow Sandy is right after a shed, she normally appears so cloudy since she lives in the sand.

We actually got dusty from the same breeder as Sandy on my fiancé’s birthday in January of 2011.

Tangerine Kenyan Sand Boa female.

Had to add another post to get the rest of the photos posted lol.


Wall*e my normal male California King snake. My fiancé actually only really holds the Kenayans and Moe (who you have not met yet) since the ‘larger’ snakes make him nervous but I will admit he’s getting a lot better about petting Dexter and wall*e but he still won’t hold them lol. Have to start somewhere right?

When we got Wall*e we were told was a biter and had drawn blood multiple times. Well *knock on wood* I don’t want to say anything to jinx our success so far lol. He has hissed but I believe I startled him since he did not turn around and hiss at me but more froze in place and hissed. Love him none the less.


Unfortunately we only have one picture of Moe at this time since he escaped on the 24th of January BUT we found him again about 4 days ago wondering around one of the pans near our stove. They always go for the heat! I am so glad we found him. I will get more photos in a day or two since once we found him we de-thawed him some prey and he is busy digesting =) oh and Moe is a normal rosy boa =)

Well I hope everyone enjoyed the photos and meeting all of our snakes =D

LOL right! it's like they know when feeding day is because as soon as I open up their cage their heads poke out of the sand "FOOD??" LOL

=D I am glad you enjoyed the photos. I can see who I need to have more frequent photo shoots of for the forum =P

I actually had to go back and look, I mean I knew what they were for but I thought I had done an effective job of "hiding" them so to speak lol. They were won by my show horse Dartanion =P well... semi-retired show horse since this will probably be my last year showing him unless he does lead-line with some kids or something =)

Yep, well at RTB morph pretty much the same thing IMO =P I can't lie I am a little surprised how popular the sand boas are since when my fiance said he wanted one I was kind of thinking... why?? but I had to admit they are the most MELLOW SWEET snakes ever! not to say Dexter, Moe etc the rest of them are not but you can really push their buttons if that make sence. One of our sand girls got a shed stuck on the top of her head and appose to getting hissy and nervous/skittish with us, she just hungout and let up help her remove it =)

LOL, I adore the cute chubbyness of sand boas... They look like fat little worms. :p Do they like being handled? I read that you aren't supposed to handle them very much, but your 2 seem so friendly!

I remember reading something like that. After they eat we leave them alone for about 2days (sometimes we will handle them on the second day) and they don't seem to mind being out. They like to weave between our fingers and then they will just kind of hang out there =). It can vary from snake to snake but we handle them for about 15-30minutes a day ~5 days a week although sometimes it's as little as 1 - 2 times a week during finals etc or if we go away for a couple of days.
