    Not a bad idea I'll be keeping my eye out for snakes&stones.com!

I will begin taking photos of all my ball python hatchlings with stones starting this year (2021) prior to rehoming. I expect my photo collection to grow significantly in a relatively short time and the plan is that each year (ideally) the morph combos will become more interesting over time...

    If not a coffee table book, how about a calendar?

    Hahaha, maybe someday in the far future I will include a free calendar with each snake purchase...
    Currently my rock tumbling skills continue to grow, and (for better or worse) I'm becoming increasingly ambitious with my 'stone shaping' projects in 2021.

    Is this really a rock? Or where did you find my brain, & can I has it back?

    Hahaha, Labradorite is always neat. It is not unusual for one to lose their mind. It is unusual for one not to find it again though.

    These stones were found in Massachusetts as well. They were part of a 5lb. rock nodule that looked interesting so I broke it up and tumbled. I was disappointed that I had only found one of these nodules in my travels up to that point.

    Last year I was thrilled to find another nodule...it weighed about 40lbs.--Unfortunately it was about 3 miles from my car on a deer-fly/mosquito infested hiking trail (and I had no tools with me). I really wanted it though...and paid the price in blood to carry it out...

    Snake-lovers & rock-hounds have a lot in common- we all insist on collecting & carrying things that fight back. You did good though.

    Rhodonite: My state gemstone.
    I divided the material I finished into the lighter and darker stones. These are the lighter colored ones.

    These are the darker stones.
    Note: I have no 'normal' ball pythons in my collection--everything is 'something' even if just Het for recessives.
