    What a striking color and pattern - it's a great matching pot accessory! I love the photo, and, I'm glad I don't run across any snakes in my pots.

    That snake would probably fetch close to $100 in the pet trade. That is one of the nicest colored corns I have ever seen, even amongst all the hoddy toddy fancy bred ones.

    I used to raise and breed lots of snakes: gray band, ball pythons, sinaloan milks. I also had lots of lizards: chameleons (veiled and jackons), leopard geckos, bearded dragons, rankins dragons. Lots of babies from them too.

    I think the funniest thing I ever saw was watching a baby cham learning to eat little crickets. They would shoot their tounge out and if they hit the cricket ZAP right on in. But if they missed the tounge would stick to the bottom of the cage and they would pull themselves forward. What a riot.

    Here are a couple of pics. One is a clearer pic of a baby Veiled Cham. The second is a bit fuzzy but gives you an idea of the size of a fairly new baby.

    Oh, I can't help it. Here is a Jackon's baby too.

    Yeah, they were pretty fun. LOTS of work though. I have the whole process documented including conception, egg laying, incubation (8+ months!!!), hatching and some other hatchling pictures.

    Shouldn't have mentioned that, Steven - what are you waiting for? Start a reptile thread! But be careful not to make Peanut jealous. She's sensitive and we're very protective of her here...

    The babies are so cute! The look clumsy just like other babies. Now when they grow up........ get them bugs, boys! Do you hire them out for pest control!
