    Re: Yafe - Albino Carpet - FINAL - Progression Thread

    Yafe is an awesome display snake. I don't know how he's comfortable in some of his weird positions, like the one below, but he seems happy enough.

    He looks comfortable to me- maybe because I'm used to seeing my rat snakes in similar positions using their branches as furniture. Long slender snakes have to learn the art of casually draping oneself...

    I hear you. It's not the draping so much, it's how he has his head turned to the side and his tail barely holding on, etc. He's often in positions like this and I often find it amusing!

    Maybe it's like how one would stretch their legs out from the couch far enough so that most of the legs are suspended in the air aside from the feet on a table or ottoman. "Stretched out relaxation" I guess you could call it.

    Re: Yafe - Albino Carpet - FINAL - Progression Thread

    I cleaned Yafe's tank tonight and changed his water. When I put him back, he was still wrapped around my arm, but happily drank.

    I love when the snakes have developed enough trust with me that they are willing to be vulnerable and drink while still attached to me. Solana does it sometimes and so has Behira. They have to be thirsty are the right time, but also trust me, which is key. I also have to manage to get my phone out of my pocket quick enough and without spooking them to take a picture!

    Yafe looking awsome dave,. His colours and contrast are great.

    I hate it when they get spooked by fumbling for your phone, why is it always in the wrong pocket too

    Re: Yafe - Albino Carpet - FINAL - Progression Thread

    Got some good shots of Yafe when I went to take him out and when I put him back. He was pretty active tonight and climbed all over me too. He's such a handsome guy, and so calm and gentle too.

    Again, that's a 4X2X1.5' Boaphile he's in.

    My sister Ally with Yafe. She even fed him, Jeff (BI), Solana (corn), and Shayna (BP).

    If those were my brat-snakes, they'd probably be ducking into the holes in those pants-
