    Photo #15

    Some local granite-esque rocks from area. There is a quarter in the photo for scale.

    At the time this photo was taken: This male is at ~1.5 years old. He has grown significantly larger since the photo and outmatches some of my older females in size.

    Some more local granite. Not the fanciest rocks in the world, but, definitely the right price for me: FREE!

    Very pretty combination! Is that his allowance for not messing up your rock circle?

    Thanks! I would give him the quarter, but, he prefers the rodent equivalent.

    I did experiment with really complex designs/patterns: One of them involved over 100 well-tumbled garnets (about the size of a dime), a few pieces of sea jasper and imperial topaz. It took me about 2 hours to setup the design, and when I put the snake in the center she flailed wildly and knocked all the stones onto the floor erasing all my effort in less than three seconds. Disheartened I just formed all the stones together in a circle again (my default) to make a photo (which is #22).

    I do have a relative who glues small stones of different colors to a background to create landscape scenes. She would love to acquire my rock collection. I would love to photograph my snakes in her artwork. Maybe someday we will have an artistic team-up....

    In that case, you can keep the quarter.

    As for your artistic team-up, it sounds like a win...
