    I took Aurora out to see one of the calves we have on the farm, and found this cutie on the way back home.
    Sorry about the poor quality! Trying to take photos while holding the baby is no easy task!

    I`m going to guess it`s a Garter snake, but I have no idea what a "clave" is (unless it`s another name for a leaf?)... (I see lots of claves in autumn here in England).... :-"

    Its an eastern garter snake, we have them everywhere in VA. Calves= plural for calf, which is a baby cow! She actually escaped so I went to find her and on the way back almost stepped on that little guy.
    Oh! Hahhaa sorry for the typo! CALVES...eesh.

    How very convenient for you when you can edit misspellings days, even weeks later (you lucky girl, you). I wasn`t sure if I`d just misread claves... That`s what you get for typing two kwickly.. (And not being able to spell proply)...
    Do you mean Aurora escaped so you had to go searching for her (have you thought of putting her on a lead)? (They`re so adventurous at that age, you`ve got to watch their every move).... :((( :cool:

    Lol, I is good at grammer and speeling. Thankfully I have a rainbow baby cage for Aurora, so she almost never escapes. The calf conveniently enough ,was harnessed.

    Can you post some pictures and list your temps and humidity? Also, how are you measuring them? What are the dimensions? Babies grow fast, you should probably start working on her adult enclosure now.

    This is her enclosure. She already has a dedicated room, or nursery and mostly she free roams.
    Hopefully I find more herps this weekend when we go hiking, nick can play with the baby, I'll be flipping rocks ;)

    Sad, isn't it? I wasn't sure what to marvel at first in the picture...the grass or the snake! ;)

    I'm thankful spring is here, I need the hot sun and green grass.

    Did you guys get hit with a blizzard? we got 10 cms last night so not to bad. My brother is stuck on the highway between Whitecourt and Fox creek. Highways closed there. I'm starting to think we only have 2 seasons, winter and mud.

    You`re going to lose most of the heat and humidity with an open top like that, maybe you can cover it with chicken wire or something?
    How did you get to be a moderator doing stuff like that??? :confused: :confused: :confused: ;|(|

    Chicken wire and wet towels should do it. No comment on how I became a moderator, I gotta keep some mystery about myself. ;)

    We were hit with a lot of snow last month, and we made an ugly snowman that melted the next day because it was 60degrees out.
