    This lovely Triangulum girl was frozen solid and on the edge of death when I found her in my yard during a heavy frost 4 years ago, I brought her inside and warmed her up, she had severe frostbite that caused a major chunk of her tail to grow septic and it had to be docked to prevent further spread of the gangrene that had set in. The resulting wound was treated with silvadine SSD creme and she was given Baytril orally, Metacam was administered for pain relief.

    She recovered fully and has been in my care since.

    about 4 weeks after she was brought in, I discovered she was gravid, she laid a clutch of 9 eggs, they all hatched out successfully and I found good homes for all the offspring but the one I decided to keep.

    These two snakes are extremely docile and have been very pleasant captives.

    Now for our two Pueblans...

    Here is the younger one.

    In contrast, the Pueblans are a guaranteed musk and or bite.

    Wow, sounds like it was meant to be when you found her frozen, and then find out about her being gravid! She won, you won ;) Weird, for some reason I thought they had live births, my bad!

    I love this one, looks like a clown face!

    Close to an inch.

    The frostbite had killed the tissue, and it went rancid.
