    My middle son is turning 9 on the 21st of this month. One of his big dreams is to have a snake of his own....not one he has to share with me. [​IMG] Anyway, a few days ago a friend told me her niece and her boyfriend are having to sell their male/female mated pair of Ball Pythons. Soooooo, needless to say, they now live with us. We got both snakes, the cage, a separate feeding cage, all their accessories, etc. for $125!!!! [​IMG] we could NOT pass up a deal like that!!!!! [​IMG]

    His favorite series of books (Cirque Du Freak by Darren Shan) has a character named Evera, he is a snake boy. So, he named the male Evera and the female Eve. They think the female may already be pregnant, so cross your fingers for us. [​IMG]

    Here he is with his new babies. [​IMG]

    Here they are in their hidey. Eve is curled up under it and Evera is poking his head out on top of her.

    The moment of seeing them:

    Him holding them. Evera is crawling up his face and Eve has her head on his shoulder.

    They are beautiful. But they make my skin crawl. I don't know why? I don't like to see them move [​IMG]

    My mom and brother have snakes. I am glad I don't live at home!

    Oh yeah... Happy Birthday Abraham!

    Thanks guys. [​IMG] Yeah, I am just glad I like snakes....with 3 boys I would be in big trouble if I didn't. [​IMG]

    And yeah, Mark, he does look just like me. Kinda funny, my oldest and youngest have blond hair and light eyes....then there is Abraham. [​IMG]

    LOL, me too. I am a HUGE fan of snakies. My husband, however, can't stand them!!! He is so good. He agreed to get them without putting up a fuss, went with me to get them, helped carry them in the house.....he is just a sweetheart. [​IMG] Wouldn't touch one to save his life, but he is good about us loving them. [​IMG]

    Buster Back to Work

    We had two Columbian Red-tailed boas until we realized that the bigger one which was 9 feet long, had been fed rabbits that were larger than my son who was born premature. We donated them to the ISU herpatology center after that. We will probably have more in the future but not until my boys are much bigger.

    Ooooohh! Your lucky son! I am forever trying to convince my parents to get me a ball python... I almost had my mom convinced, too, after seeing an especially beautiful male in Florida...

    I totally understand that, Buster!!! My kids were all preemies (my oldest 1 lb 14 oz) and even though they are all pretty big now, the larger snakes still worry me!!! LOL Of course, they are always babies to mom!!! [​IMG]

    Maybe they will let you some day, envirogirl. [​IMG] Ball pythons are not my favorite by any means....I am a kingsnake freak. [​IMG] But, this is what he wanted soooooo bad (well, or an anaconda and that obviously isn't gonna happen!!!)!!! However, I am quickly falling for these two. [​IMG]
