    Banana/Coral Glow Emperor Pin Progression

    Exactly a week ago today, I bit the bullet and put the deposit on a male banana/coral glow emperor pinstripe ball python from Dynasty Reptiles (who have been great to work with)! He won't be coming home until at least the middle of next month. I'm dying to meet him, but I'm also glad he'll also have time to grow just a biiiit bigger and learn how to python before his entire life is upended.

    Chun Ku was kind enough to send me pictures until he comes home.

    "If I hide my head under my body, maybe no one can see me."



    He looks a little more comfortable here, although in the picture taken after this one, he's trying to stuff his head under his body again.



    Baby got back! He's quite the chubmeister.

    He's really beautiful. That wait is gonna kill you! But will be so worth it. Plenty of time to get his setup perfected.

    Thank you!!! Ugh, it's only been a week but it feels like it's been much longer since I picked him out. I'm sure the time will go by quickly, but it looks so far away on my calendar.

    Thank you! I think he's about the prettiest snake on the planet, maybe excepting a few that cost thousands. Of course, that could be the budding snake mom in me talking too. I'm glad I have extra time to play with his tubs. I've been running the heat on them empty with a water dish, and have had some amusing and perplexing results (my cold side humidity has been getting up to 90%, somehow, which I was not expecting in a semi-arid state where winters are so dry that even people skin becomes reptilian if neglected... And the tub even has holes! ).

    Re: Banana/Coral Glow Emperor Pin Progression

    Well... Everything is here except the snake. After a few weeks of indecision, I've decided to just house him in the 32 quart tub I originally bought, instead of the six quart that I also have. This is partly due to the fact that Dynasty won't ship unless the low temperatures are above 35 degrees (totally understandable), and checking the Weather Channel's monthly averages indicated that this is not likely to happen until April. We have had some unseasonably warm days, but the lows are still generally in the mid to high 20's. He's already about four or five months old at this point, so not a very little hatchling, and he's only going to get bigger, so I figured this might be the best bet. So, until he can be shipped, I thought some tub pictures might be in order!

    I need to get another hide for the right side, and definitely some substrate, but I'm pretty pleased with how cluttered it looks with the mopani wood, half log, and water dish. I've been test my temps and humidity, and definitely need to solder some more holes to keep it dryer, which is the opposite of the problem I thought I'd have!

    FRIDAY FRIDAY FRIDAY!!!! (I hope.)

    Got an email from Chun this weekend stating that if temperatures in my area hold at the end of the week, the little guy will be sent out Thursday and I can pick him up at the hub Friday! Fingers crossed that temperatures stay put!

    Also received a new picture of the little fella- I do believe he's grown a bit, and no longer feels the need to sit on his own head for pictures.
