    Wow that's a purdy snake! I have never seen these before. I really like the pattern.

    Right?? Super cool looking. I had only heard a very little about the species, but doing some morphmarket window shopping I stumbled across them again.

    Based on them being slightly bigger than BPs but having a similar docile disposition I'm definitely considering adding one.

    I don't blame you. Very cool. I jumped on wiki to read a little about them. Apparently they are less common in captivity because of a previous civil war in the area they live. Nobody goes looking for them since there are so many abandoned land mines. They've gotta be extremely closely related to BP's.

    as for the split scales on Zina's belly.... maybe I'm way wrong but can't that sort of scale division be proof of inbreeding? not trying to step on toes at all! I just recently learned about the divided scale thing and I was curious if this could be an example.

    I have no idea! I didn't even know that was a thing. They weren't just divided, but in one area they were also mishappen and puckerd looking. It wasn't just a clean line of divided scales.
    I just figured it was cosmetic only and it didn't bother me.
    I also can't be sure if her sudden death was related to that, but I can't imagine what else could have happened. There wasn't a single day she was even slightly off or odd acting.
    Always ate, passed waste without issues. Was hydrated, beautiful and vibrant. Never acted strange either. Certainly no symptoms of disease.
    Husbandry was always just right. No power outages, no issues with the heat or thermostat.
    It was very odd and devastating.
    There was a sibling for sale as well that didn't have that issue and they were the same size and looked almost the same aside from the so called birth defect.

    Thatís so sad to lose a pet when you didnít have the chance to fix it! I wish animals could just tell us what was wrong. Iím sure it was something freak but Iím very sorry all the same. ):

    I had no idea about the inbred scales either but they donít pucker.... who knows. She just had some character!
