    reptile rescue

    Hey everybody!
    Well this weekend was the Wasatch Reptile Expo. It was a great show. Not as big as I had hoped, but you deffinately cant complain. My bp.net hat and pin didnt ship in time I guess they had some problems making them or somthing, but they are comping the shipping and I should get them today.
    Well we have some new additions to the family!
    I came home with a very nice looking garden phase ATB. Let me tell ya, when people say they have a nippy temperment, they arent kidding! lol.
    I got tagged at the show looking at one. The thing lunged at my wifes head three times (luckily, they have bad aim) and tagged me once in the 2 minutes I was holding him.
    I ended up getting a different one, but he is no calmer!

    I had my heart set on one, but no one had any captive borns. So I ended up with a wild caught from LLL. They said he is well established and has had no problems. Ill schedule a vet trip in the next few weeks anyway to get him treated for internal parasites. I wanna let him settle in first. Ill get you guys some pictures soon, but for now, you'll just have to take my word for it. He is a very beautiful snake, and I am a very happy boy

    My wife ended up getting three red eyed tree frogs. They are cute little guys. We spent about 3 weeks building their enclosure and I must say, It turned out very well. Ill get you guys a picture of them soon too.

    The frogs are named Ned Rod and Tod.
    I havnt decided on the ATB yet. Anyone have any good suggestions?

    How much did you pay for the snake? I am thinking of getting one, and a local pet store has some definate CBB ones, but I am wondering if their price is fair.

    I paid 39 for a wc. Their price varies quite a bit depending on the color. The red, orange, and yellow tend to cost double what the olive and garden phases cost. If you look around at online breeders, a cbb garden or olive neonate tends to run around $40-50. While the high end colors run around $100-150.

    But as Im sure you know, pet stores tend to put a high margin on their pets due to feeding, houseing, and lease costs so you pay quite a bit more. I would expect to pay around $70 for the plain colors and $150 for the high end colors at a pet store...

    borrowed my brothers digi cam last night
    hoping to do a photo shoot tonight.

    I am excited. He is a cute bugger. I've named him Gandhi.
    I want to let him be to get used to his new home, but he is a little bigger then I expected. I went in looking for a neonate but he is a little older. So I need to build him an new enclosure in the next couple weeks anyway...

    Ya know, in my exitement I totally spaced asking about its age/sex. Im such a goof. I guess I need to take him to the vet anyway...

    But yeah, I aughta have some pics tonight or tomorrow.
