Gorgeous!! I'm fond of the name Athena too! I think it's very possible she's 2 and a half--a one year old snake is still young and only a few feet long! We got maru as a yearling and I still consider her a baby even if she's a big girl now! So I can understand where she'd mistake the age(especially after not really owning baby snakes before) Athena could have been a few months old when purchased and now she's just around 2!
