    Picked up this little beauty yesterday .. he's an adult male western hognose, and he has stunning colouration (unfortunately the camera didn't want to pick this up well! :rolleyes: ) .. but he has a completely black underside which is quite unusual, and some lovely orange colour. Since our other hognoses are named after The Jungle Book characters (Baloo and Bageera) we have named him Kaa, after the hissing snake in the Jungle Book. :)

    Since the original "Kaa" was an African Rock Python, I sure hope your little hoggie doesn't get delisions of grandeur! ;)

    Schoobly, sorry about that, i'm not sure why you can't see them -anyone??

    Thanks you guys, I'll try and post better pics soon, he just wouldn't sit still for his photo shoot and couldn't get the light just right to pick up his true colours! Typical, a difficult male.. hmm that's not a common occurrence :p *ducks from all the guys throwing things* :D

    Ah you see, to those who wait.. :p

    Thanks for the compliments, he is a beautiful snake. We'll let him settle down and hope for a good feeding response at the weekend, then we'll take some pics of him compared to our other two.

    I love showing off new animals!! :D
