    Salazar!

    Well, hello there!

    This is Syd again with a new snake and some info you probably knew already: kingsnakes are really hard to take pictures of. I picked up Sal yesterday from a woman who wanted to find a new home for her snake that she felt like didn't get enough attention. So I got a ~13 year old California king, a 40 gal. tank, a huuuuge water dish, some nice driftwood, a half-log hide, and some plastic carpet type stuff all for $50. Wow.

    Sal is super sweet and only musked on me when I was putting him in his new quarantine bin (his tank smells!!) after the car ride home. Before that moment, I tried to grab some pics while holding him, which was... difficult.



    NEW SMELLS???



    NEW SMELLS!!!!!



    WHERE GO???

    Sal, plz.

    This is probably the best pic I got, since he wouldn't stop moving.



    It's hard to tell in my gross, yellow living room light, but Sal is pretty brown and a really pale yellow, and not black and white, like the cool toned pictures I got originally suggested, haha! I don't know much about king morphs, but they had another king, Slytherin, who was banded like you'd typically expect from a king. The woman's son actually apologized that I wasn't getting the cool banded one. I didn't want to make him feel bad by saying I thought Sal looked cooler, so I just replied, "Aw, that's okay! He's still pretty!"

    I'll update this thread in a few days when I weigh him and, if the weather clears up, with some better pictures!

    Edit: As a testament to how bad the lighting is, that's a blue/teal sofa. It's not nearly as green as it looks here.

    Thank you guys!! I'm very excited to finally have him home! Planning a pick up date has been a process that took about a month, but it finally arrived!! He's by far my oldest snake, but I think this will be a good lesson in how to care for an older snake.

    I know you said Magma would be your "last", but I'm thinking you should come full circle and complete the collection with a King....just sayin'
