    My latest addition..

    Bought this male from a young lady, she called him "Sundance". He's from a T+ Albino x Cherry Bomb mating. He's all attitude, hence the water splashed on the paper. But hopefully, he will produce some pretty babies..

    Thanks for the kind words...He's 3 yrs old this month, and she said he ALWAYS had an attitude...so he may or may not calm down. My 2 females are dog tame, so if produce anything, maybe the babies won't be too bad...lol. I keep native venomous, so used to things trying to bite...lol

    For some reason it always seems to be the really pretty ones (that we can't resist) that have such attitudes, lol...I guess they know they can get away with it?
    Maybe the females will calm him down...looks like they'll make really pretty babies too.

    It's harder to tell, because these are wild animals that we EXPECT to be feisty, and also because a significant number of owners PREFER them that way, but I have
    to say that snakes are getting the genes of both parents and if we really want to produce snakes with better temperaments then all breeders should be selected not
    merely for looks, but for their temperament as well....just as is done for dogs & other pets. The bigger question that raises though is whether we want to change
    our snakes (over time, gradually) into "domestic" pets? Or do we love these things BECAUSE we figure they'd survive in the wild & could replace the loss of wild
    species in the event they disappeared? Let's face it, that's a real possibility for many if not most species given the rate of human population, habitat loss & pollution.

    I know that when I bred rosy boas (known for being sweet little pets) years ago, I got very different results from my mature & once-wild* female, depending on who
    her spouse was. (*she was unwanted & given to me by a nature museum after refusing to eat & being problematic there for years.) Both of her mates were wild
    rescues likewise turned over to me: one was much mellower than the other though, & while all her offspring were strong feeders that did well, those produced from
    the union of one male were noticeably more feisty...to the extent they were biting each other & needed separated (& even FED, PRE-shed) at a day or two old, LOL!
    I took gleeful satisfaction in their survival instincts, & I had no trouble providing feeding records of 10+ feedings for those I didn't keep. And I must admit that to me,
    there's nothing sadder than wimpy babies that appear clueless about eating & survival. I once had a litter of Mexican rosy boas like that that were obviously inbred-
    I'd gotten the parents from one source who had "assured" me they weren't related... (I never bred them again & even re-homed the adults.)

    So I guess I come down on the side of keeping the "wild" in our snakes, like the old story...."Well you KNEW it was a when you picked it up..."
    That doesn't mean I don't enjoy taming, handling & relating to all my snakes...I guess I just want there to be some challenge?
