Orange Devil by LuckisGONE
Orange Devil
My little orange baby.  I can't wait to see how large she ends up being, and how well she keeps her colors.
Puppy by LuckisGONE
My future giant long dog.  She's currently a teeny 3' long, but within the next 6 months or so she'll be a medium-sized 5'-6' snake, and she'll be right around a year old at that time.  She'll continue to grow and grow from there.  The person I bought her from said that her parents were huge, so I'm guessing she could end up anywhere from 10' to 17'.
Convenient Feeding Perch by LuckisGONE
Convenient Feeding Perch
Sanji my Brazilian rainbow boa eating his hopper mouse from his feeding tongs.  This is what it looks like when a 2' boa rapidly twists through the air like a plane that's been shot down until he just -happens- to hit his mouse and latchs on.  I need to remember to film his next feeding...they tend to be interesting when he misses because he's weird.
!!!!OMGZ GIANT SNAKE!!!! by LuckisGONE
Extremely facetious title trying to cover up my poor camera-orienting skills.   Draco is actually a 1'-1.5' 26 gram checkered garter snake and not giant by any stretch of the imagination.
Yesterday was the local expo, which I've wanted to go to one since I got Cloud, and I was finally able to go!  Mostly because it was in-town. haha  It was a very small expo, but there was a good variety, which was awesome.  There were two vendors selling retics, of which one had like 10 retics on display, which is where I got my little girl.  They had some really nice-looking boa constrictors and retics on display.  They had a young Hog Island on display that was already looking like a really nice Hog, in really good shape, too.  I really wish I would have remembered to take pictures at their booth, but I was so busy ogling all the awesome snakes. :/  They were my favorite booth by far, though.  The guy also had a nice conservative feeding schedule mentality, which I can get behind.

As far as what was there, there was a lot of retics, boa constrictors, and ball pythons.  As far as snakes go, I also saw a Calabar ground boa, a couple of Amazon tree boas, green tree pythons, emerald tree boas, blood pythons, house snakes, an extremely defensive paradise tree snake, ratsnakes, kingsnakes, milksnakes, a couple hognoses, and a couple of corn snakes.  There were some monitors, tegus, albino bullfrogs, uromastyx, crested geckos, gargoyle geckos, leopard geckos, hedgehogs, pigs, rabbits, degus, finches, and a bunch of others.  My mom saw the axolotls there, and now she's dead-set on getting some to breed. *rolls eyes*

I know I said I'd wait to get one but....I went ahead and got a reticulated python.  She's a female poss het purple albino reticulated python, born somewhere around October, so she's about 6 months old, or 2 months younger than Sanji.  The breeder wasn't there, but one of the vendors there on behalf of them said that she thought she was hatched thereabouts.  She's about 3'-3.5' and weighs 150 grams.  She was easily the best looking retic at the show, if not the best-looking snake.  I'm thinking about naming her Riverrun, but name suggestions are still welcomed. :)

She's got a slight bit of nose rub and some dry scales, but it looks very minor so I think it's just from the ride to the expo.  Hopefully with some humidity and plenty of room she'll clear right up.  There's no sign of mites or illness to her, so that's good.

I had her out during the expo because she didn't seem to like being in the plastic container (I don't blame her!), and she spent most of her time sleeping on my arm or crawling on top of my head.  She was very laid back and didn't seem stressed out at all about the whole situation, which is good, hopefully she'll stay that way. :P  She's in Draco's tank temporarily while I have some heat tape shipped in, so that she will have some heat as it will take about 5-7 days for the tape to get here.  Then, when I get the heat tape I've got a nice 61 qt tub to set up for her, and I'll give Cloud's Herpstat 2 to her and Sanji to run their heat tapes.  I'll eventually get two more Herpstat 2's to run the set of RHP's and CHE's in the enclosures, as I plan on putting Bud back into his 6' enclosure until Riverrun gets some size on her.

She's spending most of her time basking under the heat lamp, but she's also been cruising around exploring and I saw her take a sip from the water dish.  She saw me come and look at her, and immediately zeroed in on me and started crawling towards me, tongue a-flicking.  She seems just as aware of her surroundings as Draco is, and even followed my finger a bit.  Having my first poop painting from her is going to be fun, though!  Looking forward to that. lol  She's still laid back, and didn't protest at all when I took her out real quick to show her to my brother and clean up the little bit of urates she left.  Now to force myself to leave her alone for the next week or so.

I'm 20 and I mostly do photography, since I can't get motivated to draw. I especially love animal and nature photography. I prefer photos that show the true animal, or get as close as you can to the true animal. I usually don't like black/white or photoshopped photos, but a slight touch to the photo that still looks realistic can still be beautiful.

At the moment I own four snakes: Cloud Strife the boa constrictor, Bud the ball/royal python, Draco the albino checkered garter snake, and Sanji the Brazilian rainbow boa.

Although I rarely ever get on anymore, send me a note if you use duelingnetwork, and we can have a duel! :D I used to be pretty good, but I haven't played in months, and I wouldn't mind some practice. :P My username is IFiredMyParents.

I am currently in college, majoring in Biology, and I hope to eventually specialize in Herpetology (the study of reptiles and amphibians). Snakes are my main interest, and talking about/researching/blabbing about my own little guys take up a lot of my time, and has been since I got my boa constrictor 3 years ago (although I've had the ball python 8 years, he did not do much to spark my interest in snakes). :P
