Callie will forever reign supreme though; at least 10 feet at this point

Leah was being cute though; pics are blurry but I couldn't get rid of them

Beautiful snakes as always! You inspired me to get into snakes about a year ago and now I have a corn snake and a ball python. Snakes are awesome. 

Callie is stunning by the way.

The corns got busy carrying on the legacy of my first snake (Midnight's the daughter of my first one), got some weird looks when I disturbed them...

Midnight update: as of today (the 31st of July), she's come back home from surgery. There was a tumor in the wall of the colon that had to be removed, so now there's 2 weeks of pain med and antibiotics injections...but she's alive and well so far. Hopefully full recovery will lead her to many more years.

And in other news:

Halailah is always watching

Tsela likes hanging out upside down...

And this is her with dull colors going into shed...

Rebel's always up for hanging out (so long as he doesn't get food-triggered first)

Food does not always cooperate...

Bindi wishes for more food, but cannot have because she just ate and is already fat anyway...

But fat or not, she is beautiful

Between the two Dominican boas I have, with Reynard already showing as much color at this size as Domhara has at near-adulthood, Reynard is definitely going to be the brighter, redder one

Sadly, after over $2500 in vet bills, Midnight went in for surgery, had a cancerous colon tumor removed...and then 2 weeks later an internal suture ruptured and the damage could not be fixed. These are the last photos to be taken of her:

She had no new babies within the past few years, so the lineage started with my first snake continues no more...though she will be immortalized with the shed pendant I have and the shed I still have that will be made into more pendants.

Focus cannot remain on the past though, much as it hurts...I have many other animals that still need attention

Some are growing fast (and make good bracelets)

Others likely slowing down in growth...and like to laze about

He thinks he's hidden...but most of him is still sticking out the other end of the tube

And...the corn snake project I have no intention of simply dropping due to a loss, and I had a hole that needed filling. This girl also fits the meaning of her name in personality (My Friend)
