    Hey All!!

    Sorry I haven't posted in a while, I've been extremely busy getting the snake cages ready, and I also sold my computer haha. Anywho, they are just about ready, and just in time. Right now I'm at my brothers apartment in San Diego, and I just got back from the Reptile Super Show. And yes, there was an additional heartbeat in the car on the return trip :D

    Say hello to Roxy the Argentine Boa!!

    She is about 3 years old, extremely tame, never struck at anyone, and takes jumbo f/t rats like they were her last meal lol. I am so incredibly happy haha. The cage she is in was the display cage they had her in at the show, and I think I will need to do a little cage shuffling for a bit. The three 4' cages are ready, but the 6' cage still needs the heat panel and glass, and the 3' cage I ordered the wrong size panel so that will be replaced in about 2 weeks. So I think poor Snakey will be bumped to the glass tank, and Roxy will get into one of the 4' cages I built for Snakey lol. Just until I finish Roxy's 6' cage. I'll post pics of all the cages and the whole family once I get home and get everything switched over and set-up, either tonight or tomorrow.

    I just couldn't wait to tell you guys about Roxy :D

    Very nice looking snake...I have no doubt she will make a nice addition to your family...(BTW, love the name, it's the same one I gave my Uromastyx when I realized the one I named "Rex", needed a more feminine name.;))

    Roxy is gorgeous! Love the colors and patterns, almost reminds me of a leopard boa!

    Congratulations on a great new addition Zach!

    Haha yeah i was hopeing to find a baby too. But Roxie was the only argentine boa at the whole expo lol. And im happy with her :) shes a sweetheart, so curious too! Its amazing to walk by a cage and have a big pretty head following your movements lol. Shes definitely around 6ft, all measure her on sunday (feeding day!). Shes already a great size for photoshoots, and shes got plenty more growing up to do with me :)
