A few baby pictures

While creating my last post, I got to thinking about how much some of my babies have grown... so I thought I'd post a few then and now pictures :)

When I got Bijou, she could curl up in my hands. I'll never forget the day she came in the mail, which is when this photo was taken.Four and a half years later, I can only barely hold her with one hand if she's curled up in a ball, which she doesn't do often, she likes to explore. She's one heavy snake full of muscle, she gives good neck massages. I love her to death <3
Next up is Monty, my pink snow corn snake (meaning: amelanystic and anerythristic, not albino). He was my first pet store snake, got him from Petco in January 2004. He had a bad case of mites and scale rot, which both took a lot of time and perseverence to cure. Here he is going after a pinky mouse.
And now... eating a small rat.

And now for Tiger the kenyan sand boa. Was the definition of cuteness when I picked him up at a pet store spur of the moment a few years ago (I had done my research, though).
And while the orange coloring has faded a bit, he's certainly plumped up.

And how about Ninja the crested gecko... what a sweet little baby. I picked her out while I was working at a pet store, I couldn't resist taking one home with me. She had the best temperment and prettiest patterns.
Now a big fat happy gecko.
There's more I could share but those were some of the best shots.

They are all so cute.

It's fun to see how much they've grown.

i am so curious about Bijou. has she ever bitten you? the small snakes have never made me worry about it but the big ones look like it would hurt.

Nope, Bijou has never EVER bitten me. A few of the snakes have bitten during feeding time (accidents, from bad aim), but other than that, none have ever bitten me out of aggression. Bijou is a sweetheart :)

i like hearing that :)

Ninja is the cutest little thing ever!!! I love her! We have house geckos here in Queensland - fat little white ones, and they are so cute :) I hate it when my cat tries to chase them, I get very cross :(

I think your post is very good, rather I would have liked to read a bit more about this topic because I think it is quite interesting
