    Coastal skins are great, We have had some huge ones from mila.She will shed prob 3 to 4 times over spring/summer. We have a brown tree snake that lives in the roof. Only time you really see it is when it comes out into the tree at night to shed. Has scared a few visiotrs when it decides to hang out of the tree to say hi lol. We have some lovely green tree snakes around here too but i have yet to find a skin from one.One of the funniest things i have seen out here is my old neighbour from next door was over one day and we were sitting outside on the concrete having coffee. This beautiful green tree snake somes down a branch of the golden cane palm right in front of my face. My neighbour hates snakes so he was none to happy. I said hello beautiful It looked at me then went back up the frond. Within a mintue it comes flying down another frond straight at reg.(it stopped well short of his face) He just about fell out of his chair to getaway. He's screaming at me get the axe it's gunna kill you. Me in fits of laughter said reg it wont hurt you its a tree snake. (it was not trying to bite just saying hi). Well it dissapeared up the frond again and was gone. Reg finally calms down enough to sit back in the chair and after a bout 5 mins we hear this weird noise, then bang it falls off the gutter of the roof right on reg's feet lol. It quickly slithered off into the garden. Well that was it for reg he was out of here .. Cheekly little snake it was.

    I am off to collect Barnie eggs on Saturday from a local. Although I am only hatching this time to test the bator If they are good looking parents I may keep one or three LOL

    Other than nice cooper colour eggs, lacing and yellow legs are there any other traits I should look for ?

    I am going to turn this into my Brooder. The wire "Run" is not connected so I can use the stilted 'house' and put in light and food and use the run later for outside time on the grass.
