So back in November I had one snake. A nice male Dumerils Boa which has his issues with eating, but other than that a generally good snake. Then I found a Splotched Sinaloan Milksnake that I HAD TO HAVE! She is doing wonderfully and growing like a weed.
Then, back in February, I went to a reptile show to get food for the snakes and ended coming home with a beautiful baby female blood python. For those keeping track, I'm now up to three snakes.
Now I was comfortable with this number. All were doing well (except for Khardeen, my Dumerils which still won't transition to f/t no matter what I do). Then a friend died suddenly from cancer, and I took in her 1.5 year old ball python.
Now at this point, my boyfriend thinks that I am a crazy person because of having so many snakes in the house.
So work takes a dive for the worse and my boyfriend, has an idea. I've been talking for a while about how if I ever won the lottery, that I would get into snake breeding. He had the idea of starting out small with a few pairs to breed, and over the next couple of years, build enough of a stock of snakes so that someday, it could be my full-time job.
Over the past couple of months, we saved enough money to buy 4 new snakes for breeding. We researched setups for tubs and we researched different morphs so we had an idea of what ones we wanted to start out with. So a week ago, we went to the Kansas City Reptile Show and bought 4 more babies.
So now I have a male mojave ball python, two baby female normal ball pythons, and a male blood python to pair with my female blood python.
*sighs* So over the course of less than a year, I have gone from 1 snake to 8 snakes. They are truly an addiction. And now some pictures of the babies.( Pictures ahoy!Collapse )
The only one that is not shown is Lilith, my milksnake. She doesn't hold still well for pictures. And that is my insane collection so far.
