    Thank you! Thank you!

    Have lots of family stuff to do these days so it is not easy to find time for more elaborate Snakes and Stones photos.
    Grabbed a few more quick pics of some of my ball pythons with irises today.



    Still working on those stones though...too bad I can't find these in my area...

    Smile What types of stone?

    Hi again!

    Do you recommend tumbled stones for enclosures? And are there any particular stones you find better suited?

    Thank you!

    Heya! I don't really use my tumbled stones in my enclosures. Snake urates can be brutal to try and clean off. If I wanted to use tumbled/polished stones:
    I would pick ones with a high density and hardness: microcrystalline quartz variants (like agate/jasper) would be my go-to as the mirror polish would probably survive daily scrubs with a steel brush for months before it faded.

    Only 1 million? I'm still a 'young' guy with big snake plans: lets try for 10 million.

    Thank you Boger, and Thank you all!

    Snakes and Stones Season '22 is in progress! First clutch for me was laid on June 1st. I am up to 4 right now. Aiming for a light year of ~25 clutches this go round (next year 2X).
    I am disappointed that I will not get to use my time lapse incubator this season (I was going to upgrade to HD video). I am working too many hours so I won't be able to balance the thermal swings from the cameras and lighting. The plus side to working these hours is that 300lbs. of Rodent Food/month becomes a trivial expense.

    About 5 more photos left in my 2021 set.

    Photo #241

    Yellow Calcite, Fluorite, and a Leopard Pastel Het VPI Axanthic.

    People often say that fluorite is one of the most challenging stones to tumble/polish-that is because they haven't tried calcite yet...

    More local granite from my area (MA, USA), not the easiest stones to tumble, but, have their own character.

    You can tell there is something going on with this ball python...it is: 100% Het Lavender Albino with a 50% possible chance for Albino and Pied (though doubtful pied-due to the 'even' patterning).

    Re: Snakes and Stones

    Been very busy lately, on clutch #9 so far for 2022.

    My gf and I went to the New England Reptile Expo in Manchester NH this morning (26JUN2022): Snapped a few quick photos--got crowded really fast, we only stayed about 20 minutes, so rush-rush-rush.

    Crimson Albino Iguana


    Fat Tail Gecko (cha-ching!):

    Dumerils yawning:

    Rhino Iguana:

    Tiger Rat Snake (feisty!)




    Always lots of Axolotls...



    Super fancy bettas at a reptile expo...who would have guessed:



    I thought these bags listed by weight (shown below) had rabbits, but, they were actually guinea pigs...

    My gfs inner goth wanted this bat skeleton (shown below):





    Living in New England, anything other than a grey or greenish-grey stone is a novelty...


    What we bought: A small enclosure (for a jumping spider), a bag of live oak leaves, a bag of mangolia leaves, hornworms, and a ball python (in the bag).

    The ball python is a 100% Het.

    My first guess while scanning tables was Het Genetic Stripe, but, I was wrong.
    Anyone care to guess what type of Het she is?
    Clue: It is not a gene I have yet.

    I think Zincubus would probably be the only one of us who could accurately guess.
