    New Pickup!

    Below is my new Lesser boy, Jax. He's just shy of 4 months old weighing 171g empty. I got him from Rice Reptiles at the East Texas Herpetological Society expo today. I wasn't originally going to purchase him. I went into the expo with the intent on getting some frozen feeder mice (for my spider who has decided she won't eat rats ) and some hides for my rack since currently I'm using butter/cool whip/etc. containers with holes cut in them. Although they are functional, they aren't very uniform or aesthetically pleasing. So, I wanted to get some RBI type hides.

    Upon arriving at the table, I was blown away by this Lesser and his sister. I've been wanting a pastel or lesser boy for awhile now and although I don't know a lot about what makes a good lesser a "good lesser", I found this guy and his sister and they were breathtaking to me. His sister as an IMPECCABLE pattern, very reduced. He is gorgeous as well. I got the chance to hold him and that seemed to move his bowls right along. He nailed my jeans and launched some urates onto the breeder's shirt. We had a good laugh as we grabbed some paper towels to catch the "mother load". Rob got a video of the event and will post it below...it will be graphically awesome with snake poo.

    After the pooping, I returned him to his deli cup and walked around the expo, trying to figure out if I wanted to get him (the breeder made me a deal on a mojave female and him to produce some BELs, but sadly she sold the female by the time I got back around). When I made it back to her table, I just couldn't seem to pass up the little boy who pooped on me. This makes my 8th snake and I'd NEVER been pooped on until this day. How could I pass him up? He popped my snake-pooping-on cherry!

    Without further adieu, here is Jax:

    The biggest live rat I saw were rat pups...but then again, they may have had then stuck somewhere else that I didn't see.
