    2018 Yellow Progression

    Just got home from the Sacramento Expo... with my new Yellow male!!! This guy is SMOKIN! He's in his quarantine tub now and in about 6 months he'll get a Sonnys old boaphile. I picked the one with the brightest yellows. Ive got to try and get a few hours of sleep before work but ill add to the post later!







    Now for the hard part... the name!

    Re: 2018 Yellow Progression

    Here he is again; my yet to be named yellow male. I got him from Shedskin Reptiles, based out of Stockton CA at the Sacramento Expo. He will be the last addition to my group for a few years, so i think he's the perfect snake to end my collection growth with. The breeder said he was born July 14 2018. I pulled him out for a few minutes to get his quarantine tub set up better but other than that i'm giving him until Friday to continue to adjust. So far he has been great, he seems to be in perfect health and while he is wary of me he hasn't been overly defensive or even struck at me for that matter. Hopefully he'll accept a live rat fuzzy Friday (thats what the breeder has been feeding him), and then we can start working on short and sweet interactions a couple days after. Im also going to get his weight once all that begins, so i can somewhat document his growth. He was definitely the pick of the litter, or at least the pick of what was brought to the show. His ventral colors are so bright and crisp. Once he's more comfortable I definitely want to get some quality pictures.

    Anyway here he is in really bad lighting, being introduced to his new set up




    I think i also want to run fake Ivy across the top edges of the back and sides of the tub for extra foliage.

    Wow i didnt know you got an annie. Thats pretty cool. And even better that it is mellow. Usually yellows tend to be more bitey than greens. If you are a member of the anaconda FB pages, go look over there. There is guy over there who just posted his 16 foot girl who is thicker around than most peoples thighs. Thing is freakin huge. It's a green though. Funny part is he said now that she is older, she is picky and only eats a guinea pig every couple weeks iirc.

    An Annie would be sweet but no way i can deal with something that big. Caesar is the biggest i want to deal with lol.

    Yeah i figured a male yellow would be a lot more manageable than a male green size size. I donít need another monster snake, Sonny is quite the handful already. And I figured Iíd have to work through the nippey stage but maybe not haha. I had considered going with a gtp after seeing Pat and Alex but I really like to be hands on so I donít think a gtp wouldíve been a good fit for me, at least at this point.
    And if the post youíre referring to is what I think it is, Iím pretty sure I screenshotted it and sent it to a friend. Those female greens are no joke!

    He took his first meal with me like a champ! He got a live rat hopper, heíll get one more next week before I try the switch to frozen thawed. Iíll get him out for some handling in a couple days and snag some more pictures/get a weight on him

    Great looking snake, just beautiful! Congrats!

    I came so close to getting a Green Anaconda about a month ago. I decided to treat the urge like a tattoo and see if I still feel the same in a year.

    So, I am very interested in seeing how things go for you. Maybe a Yellow is in my future instead?
    The one thing I found that you can count on about Balls is that they are consistent about their inconsistentcy.
