    Guess what I got for my birthday...?!?!?!?!?!?!

    A... gaboon viper!!!!!

    :D Well, ok, admittedly not at our house, haha, but some friends of mine adopted one from our favourite place, Chester Zoo! I received a certificate of adoption, some complimentary tickets to visit the zoo, a quarterly magazine, complimentary adopter -day tickets, and will have my name on the plaque on the gaboons' enclosure! What a fantastic present! I love it! Will post some pics of our "new snake" when we go visit :p

    LOL :D Ah I'm not going anywhere for a long while!.. At least not until I get my very own gaboon right here! :p For now I'll stick with my adoption and with my gaboon sculpt that Lauren made me :D

    Here are some pics of the three sculpts Lauren made me, inc. the gaboon - thought I'd make them even cuter by having Rose and Cherry pose with them :p
