    Yurlunggur, aka Bruce (picture-heavy)

    Last weekend we want to the Tinley Park NARBC show, and we were only *supposed* to come home with my husband's Vietnamese Blue Beauty . . . Fail! My excuse is that the very few Stimson's pythons I saw at the show were very faded-looking.

    This is my new boy, who is officially named Yurlunggur, but got nicknamed Bruce on the way home:



    I got him from GFX Morelia, hatched June 2014. He's fear-nippy, just like my Centralian, but may already be getting better (or I'm learning how to handle them).

    His typical "I am a big scary snake! Fear me!" pose:


    Interestingly, he's the first of our snakes to like a top-entrance hide, presumably because he likes being arboreal.





    He decided light cables were a good perch:



    I replaced that light with one that wouldn't need cable loops in the cage (I'd tried to save a little money, should have gotten the second light to start with) . . . Fail:



    So on a trip to Reptile Rapture on Saturday I got him a Magnaturals shelf; and yesterday my husband built him a jungle gym. First test-fit:



    Trim and re-center. Bruce approves:



    I got an artificial vine yesterday, maybe tonight I can get it laced across to give him more options.

    Bruce is quite the gorgeous boy! He looks at home as well.

    Congrats!
    The one thing I found that you can count on about Balls is that they are consistent about their inconsistentcy.

    Beautiful snake, and I love his enclosure! The walls and decor really make his colors and pattern pop.

    Re: Yurlunggur, aka Bruce (picture-heavy)

    His enclosure is plain white, but I think it picks up some blue from the LED lighting we use (which has no actual blue LEDs).

    The monkey bars are mostly schedule-mumble (the thinner-wall off-white stuff) 1/2" PVC for the lower frame, uprights, and fittings. The upper bars are dowels - we found the inside-coupling elbows you can see in the test-fit picture, which allowed the use of a smaller dowel, IIRC 3/8". I think the thicker dowel is 1/2". Everything fit together tight enough that AFAIK my husband hasn't bothered to glue it together (plan is/was to use hot glue, not PVC solvent cement).

    When Bruce grows up/gets a grownup enclosure, we were talking about making a PVC tree, especially since he's also still using the tree in the pictures.

    Pretty sure my husband likes building snake toys a lot better than doing real plumbing.

    Aww!! He looks like my old jcp! They really do love climbing. Be careful though. My girl got out once and I found her curled up inside my printer!!

    However, once jcps get big they require the biggest, tallest tank you can find. They need length obviously, but they also want to climb as high as possible. Save for it now!

    Prog, by any chance did you name Bruce after Bruce Wayne, aka Batman?
