    Thanks Rich. BP's can fade pretty good with age, and she was quite bright and glowing as a youngster, with more white on her also. However, she's still pretty stunning now, it just depends more on the light, and it's more subtle. However, if she shed recently, or is having a good day, and you catch that "spider" pattern right, she absolutely glows. Katie says it looks like someone drew on her with a yellow hi-lite pen! Her heard, especially, has retained much of that neon brightness.

    As you know, I'm loving my Boas, and Yafe, my Carpet Python, is growing on me. However, I've always had a BP in the collection and a BP was my first snake (corn snake second - and yes I love Figment and Solana as well - but I've had corns for almost as long as BP's). What Shayna lacks in inquisitiveness, she makes up for in beauty, gentleness, and for getting me back into reptile keeping in a big way 6 years ago. I guess you could say she was my gateway snake; BP's always have been. I've always enjoyed them and they felt safe to me. Shayna was such a great snake (and I already had George at the time - bearded dragon who made it to 11 before having to be put down - RIP) that she inspired me and gave me the confidence to try keeping other species. I wouldn't have Behira, Feliz, and Yafe, if not for Shayna.

    Shayna will always have a special place in my heart.

    Shayna doesn't come out much during the winter because she's pretty inactive and mostly brumating, and she refused her last meal (she's been taking every 6 weeks or so and maintaining weight). However, I had her out for a few minutes today and she looks pretty good. Good body definition and shape and good color. Snapped a couple of pictures and thought I would share. Still sweet as always.
