    Eastern Indigo - Drogon

    This hatchling was ready for me to pick up a few weeks earlier than anticipated. He's on unscented rodents already.

    If there's going to be a final snake to any collection, it better be an eastern indigo! He's hatched 7/27/18 and I've named him Drogon. I love dragons and I thought it's fitting for his colors and future large adult size.

    Eastern indigos are endangered and are the largest native snake species in the US. They're not constrictors, so they actually kill their prey by just grabbing and crushing. As adults, they eat and poop like large dogs and are high-maintenance snakes- ideally need to be fed multiple prey items per feeding with frequent feedings every few days. Some general info on the species LOL

    Also the most money I've ever dropped on a snake.

    Yay at last he's here! He's so regal and handsome and Drogon is such a fitting name! Definitely a king of kings! I can't wait to watch this boy grow and read about his behavior!

    thanks! The white specks will fade quickly with age, as it's just a hatchling thing.

    Incredible looking snake. When I was young this was the snake all books called the perfect pet. Only my dream list.

    Beautiful, gorgeous snake!

    Also one of the smartest snakes apparently - I'm interested to hear how his personality develops as he grows!
