    Default Sssssnake In The Grass - Viper Boa

    Got some nicer shots of my viper boa finally. She's such a snake in the grass. lol


    Moved her to another location for some different shots. She looks really wild here I think. Like I spotted her out in the field or something.

    Ah--okay, I know she is a much-beloved pet, but she kind of gives me the heebie-geebies.

    I must have stumbled across too many snakes in the fields growing up.

    AND...those dark photos of her make her even more scary... LOL. Thanks for sharing the photos. Do you take her outside often? How fast is she?

    Cheers,

    Sadie, lol!

    Brutal Dreamer, this was her first outdoors experience in my care, but she'll probably have more. She's faster than she looks but not so fast that I couldn't catch her fairly easily if she decided to make a break for it.

    Pavel, she's actually full grow. She's about two feet long.

    Yeah, I love the texture of his scales, she's a very interesting species.
