    Lord Sorril, you live WAY too exciting a life. I'm so glad you got to that hot mess in time, & nothing worse happened.

    As for the rattlesnakes, I can't imagine preserving any of my pets for sale as a "snake in a jar"- Normally I bury my pets, though I do have the bony remains of one in particular in a classic blue speckle jar (as an informal urn) that says "Kiss my grits". He's not for sale either...

    I knew that I should have put a winking emoji, or some such, after my comment to show that I meant it in jest. Hard to imagine anyone getting rich off spiders. Now, cockroaches! That's totally different. There's gold in them there roaches.

    Just make sure you specify what kind of roaches you're selling...

    Exciting a life? Sounds like the Chinese Curse 'May you live in interesting times'.

    I know some people are into taxidermy--totally not my 'thing'. I've necropsied some of my reptile pets in the past-and I think if I preserved one in a jar...I would probably get nauseous every time I looked at it... That said: When I was in Pre-Med classes in university-I did study a lot of 'remains'. It helps a lot when you don't know anything about the life of the specimen and then you can just view it as an intriguing structure instead of a unique individual.

    Lol, I know you were joking. If I was going to breed insects it would be Blue Death Feigning Beetles. People have learned how to be breed them captively (eggs have to be incubated), but, all the vendors I see are still selling wild caught at the expos... I was also talking to vendors about the Red-Eyed Katydids. Those sound like a lot of fun. Not sure if anyone has captive bred them yet-sounds like something that would be up my alley (if I had the time...which I don't).

    Re: Snakes and Stones

    So, while I wait around for my eggs to hatch for 2024...I get a chance to take a closer look at my 2023 holdbacks.
    I noticed that two of my clown ball pythons look very different from each other (to my eyes). Both of them are 50% Possible Het for Lavender Albino.
    A bit of Het Lavender Albino interaction on the one on the left perhaps?...Only time will tell.
