Did you miss me?

I'm baaaaack! I had an absolutely wonderful break, lots of fun spent with the boyfriend and pets and family.

I have quite a bit of updating to do here I see. So many things to talk about, so little time!

So I'll start with this. I bought myself a macro lens for my camera, and took some pictures during the week.

This is a close up of one of my snakes, Monty. He's a pink snow corn snake. I measured him (with great diffuculty as he's certainly wiggly) and he's 4 and a half feet long. I got him when he was under a foot, a teensy little thing. He's quite a monster now!

Raaawwwrrrr, dinner time! Here's my pacific island boa (Candoia carinata), Misty, eating her f/t pinky mouse. She used to eat only tree frogs, and has finally in the past year made the switch to mice. She's full grown at just under 2 feet.
More scaly fun - Tiger the kenyan sand boa.
Checkers the eastern milk snake says: "I SNIFF YOU!"
Napoleon, a smaller version of checkers was in blue (about to shed) so no pictures. And my camera batteries died when I went to my boyfriend's place so no pictures of Bijou and Jacques the ball pythons, but they were looking stunning as always.

And here is Buddy, the family bearded dragon. He's still a juvenile, about a foot and a half long. Such a little character.
And of course Pepper. My wittle baybee. He loves me, and I love him, we're bestest buddies. Leaving him behind while I'm at college tears at me the most. He's a caique, a rescue with some attitude, but he's mostly just silly.
That's not even all of them! More updates, features, rants and raves are on their way, don't worry. I currently need to work on unpacking and study for my statistics exam, yuck.
