    What is this little guy?? I found him roaming in my room....I didn't buy him. No clue where he came from. He's a little cutie...but what is he. I assumed he's a sand boa but wasn't sure. The dime in the pic is for reference to see how small he really is. Thanks for all the help.

    It's a Kenyan Sand Boa from Africa!
    Definately NOT a Colorado native!
    Looks a bit thin and dehydrated.

    I think someone in the same building as me might've lost it....if i see or hear anything about one missing i'll return him but until then i'll tend to him. What would he eat he's so tiny? i was rearranging my room actually when i found him...he was behind my filing cabinet. he's been drinking water since i found him.

    He should be able to take a small pinky with no problem (f/t if possible).
    He definitely showed up at the right place. lol

    I wish something like him would wander into MY house.... *sigh*....
    A really small pinkie mouse and a good long soak in warm water will do wonders for the little guy!
    He's so cute:)

    Eryx colobrinus loveridgei is the the sub species known as the Kenyan Sand Boa. This particular sub species is typically orange in color with black spots and hails from such places as Kenya and Tanzania. He should be able to handle a pinky mouse with no problems and will work up pretty quick to a pinky rat. The breed is usually pretty docile. Expect a male to grow to about 2 feet or a female to 3 feet. Probably someones' lost or escaped pet, but it found the right home. Definitely a keeper.

    Wishing that snakes come wandering into my room?!?! I think you are all crazy! =)

    Nevertheless, I think that little snake win the lottery. Some other person would just get rid of it no matter what!

    Not too many people on this site Ricardo!!! I'd rather find a live snake in my room than a diamond ring! :D

    Congrats on finding the little guy, Locklynn! Give us some updates on how he recovers.

    ... err... that I'm the only sane person in this thread? =)
    On the other hand, that's highly subjective. if I'm only one thinking differently, then maybe you all are sane and I'm the only one crazy ;)

    If I ever find a snake in my room, don't die from a fulminate simultaneous aneurism and heart stroke before I could even gasp my surprise, I will let you know! =)
