I haven't posted in over a week! I ran out of pictures of Norman, and the weather wasnt quite nice enough this whole week for me to take him out. Today was hot, around 28°c (82f) so I took all my African species out to get some shots in the woods. I am not going to risk a respiratory infection by taking my snakes out in weather that is cooler than their cool spot in their enclosures, even if for only a few minutes. Often that is what can cause delays in my photo posting when I am doing outdoor photos (that, and them being in shed). One thing that is super annoying with taking outdoor photos are the mosquitoes. I don't use bug spray when handling the snakes AT ALL due to the toxicity. Which means I end up wearing thick sweaters and pants in hot temps when taking photos of the snakes outside to protect as much as I can from mosquitoes. Although they still bite my fingers, hands and face and can usually go through my pants lol. Y'all pray that I don't get West Nile or something bc I'm half mosquito bites 😂. Luckily they have never even landed on my snakes, I think they prefer a soft skinned warm blooded creature like me. #normansandboa
After many stressful hours of comparing tails, popping, and probing- it turns out our sexes were backwards! Mabel and Dipper are both males and Pepé is a female! I’m glad we found this out before the men matured enough to mate because I was cohabiting them as females. Pepé is now a Penelope and I’m not sure if we’re changing Mabel’s name.
That moment when our love is on fire 🔥🔥😍😍💞💞
