    The last python is in captivity, the forum is at peace... Zebes update thread

    Doing this rather lopsided as there's technically other threads where I was keeping updates, but decided it was best to move everything to a more dedicated thread where everything's more organized.

    Anyway, this is Zebes, my nearly 8 month old male banana BP. He is named after the planet featured in the Metroid video game series (all snakes I have in the future will revolve around the naming scheme of fictional video game worlds). Not the first snake I've ever had as I've owned a corn snake some years ago, but it's been so long that he feels like my first. Couldn't have asked for a better start with him though, he's been a dream. Never bitten anybody, has been sporting a hearty appetite and been patient with me as I learn (or even relearn) all the ropes. Somewhere above 2 feet long and just getting started on rat pups, he's been growing steadily. To think he was able to fit in a deli cup when I got him last September.


    A showcase of his length.

    Gamer snake lol.

    Closeup of his coloration. He's been retaining the orange well, hoping he keeps it into adulthood to some extent (specifically picked him from the breeder's selection because he was so vivid).

    Love him! My orange dream pinstripe is right behind him pushing about 7 1/2 months. They look like they're about the same size!

    Fresh out of his third shed with me (plus a MASSIVE dump...).

    A pied was one morph I was looking at, but they were just beyond what I was willing to spend unfortunately. I'm happy with my boy all the same though.

    Here he is over a year old and roughly 500 grams. Genuinely surprised he's still as colorful as he is. Guessing bananas don't fade out until full adulthood if other banana morph keepers want to verify?

    What a gorgeous baby! Those colours make him look like a dessert, such nice, soft yellows and lavenders.

    Re: The last python is in captivity, the forum is at peace... Zebes update thread

    Kind of forgot about this thread since the latest snake pic one exists, but I feel this image is special enough to revive it.

    This is my almost 3 year-old niece. Over the past few weeks (my mother babysits her and my baby nephew every Friday) I've slowly been showing Zebes to her. She was clearly afraid at first, then last week she agreed to see him and very lightly touched him in a flighty way.

    But this time today, she gave Zebes long, slow strokes with a big smile on her face, even outright saying "I like snakes!" while petting him. This is now the 5th younger relative that has grown to like snakes because of his ambassadorship. I couldn't be more proud of him.

    He's a beautiful goodwill ambassador for snakes, & your niece is a cutie, too.
