Time to get down to business

I took a quick break to go home between the end of classes and the start of final exams - time for me to get my ass in gear and study (yuck).

However, I should show some photos of how much fun I had at home. Did a craft show (giveHANDMADE!, in Troy NY) two days and sadly don't have any photos, but you can see the blog here, should have photos up soon. I did pretty well and it was a lot of fun. My boyfriend Josh helped out one day, wish I had gotten pics of him with my giant centipede Cedric, they looked adorable together.

And of course I got to play with my animals - I miss them so much while I'm here at school.

Monty the monster is still growing like a weed:
Got to hang out with Buddy the bearded dragon, he's grown quite a lot the past few months. The rest of my family doesn't play with him enough, but I got him to fall asleep on me :)
Ok, and the size of Tiger the kenyan sand boa can be mysterious, as he has a small head and rarely comes up out of the shavings. My parents only ever see his head poking out, and at feeding time he just drags the mouse under the substrate. Well WOW he's gotten fat!
Misty the pacific tree boa had fun at feeding time... she kept striking and missing, and I was getting impatient. Finally the mouse slipped from my tongs... and she dove down and caught it right above the bottom of the tank! Caught it by one foot, no less. It was quite impressive. It took her a while to coil back up around it, but she managed.
Tip Toe is looking gorgeous as ever with her shiny blue fuzz and cute pink feet.
And of course, there's Pepper. He got a new toy from wyspurcreations on etsy, it's his favorite.
And he's really taken to the cup-head thing.
I should add that isn't *ALL* of our animals, there's still more I didn't take pics of, and some are staying with my boyfriend, hehe. And with that... I really need to get studying!

Is Monty a cornsnake? Which kind (type of albinism[s])?

All your animals are beautiful!

Monty is a pink snow cornsnake, meaning he's anerythristic and amelanistic.

Awesome photos!!!

About the show in Troy, would you do it again? I remember being contacted by them asking if I would be interested in doing it but I already had a show booked that weekend.
