    as most of you know - i got kain - my baby yellow anaconda - about 3 or 4 weeks ago (somewhere along those lines) - and i am still as psyched about him as the day i got him!

    there is one hugely fasinating thing though - this being how fast this little booger grows

    when i first got him - he fit in my hand (coiled) - now - he wraps my entire hand (i have big hands - widthwise) with several coils - like 3 - and has a vice grip...of doom ;)

    when first recieved - his body wasnt as long as his 20L - but now - hes longer by about 2 or 3 inches...

    when held - he wont hesitate to crack your knuckles for you - only so you dont have to do so yourself :p

    hes my little buddy - and i LOVE him to pieces!

    my little boy is growing up! ::glows::

    with the short time i have had him - he has been NO trouble - well - aside from the first day - when he was a serpent chainsaw from hades...

    but second day - he started warming up - and hasnt struck since (cept fer prey items - which he LOVES to maul for some reason - he will sit in his water - and watch the food above - he will raise up out of the water and follow the food - i had him standing almost as high as the 20L last night...well - not THAT high - but about 1/4 of his body straight up with no support underneath... for a frozen thaw mouse - he got up there - and "sniffed" for a split second and ...whered that mouse go?!?!? he is lightning when he strikes - and i know now for sure if he wanted to tag me - i wouldnt be able to dodge it...

    i will argue to DEATH against the concept that yellow anacondas are evil snakes that cannot be handled

    my boy has a strong bond to me - and loves to show me just how strong it really is when i try to put him back in his enclosure...

    he actually loves being handled - and is extremely curious...

    he loves to be handled for LONG periods of time - (i have naturally warm hands) - particularly when we watch a movie - he will move around - in and out between my fingers until he is comfortable - "latch" in place - and wont move until you try to move him - in which case - his typical movements are an inward crushing movement set - to which he sees fit to squeeze fingers to the point of snap crackel pop - but if you insist - he will "resituate himself" and latch back down

    this is great - if you dont mind having purple fingertips (even at rest - he is rediculously strong - this strength isnt "tension" - it just natural to an anaconda - as they are some of the strongest snakes in the world - and some of the heaviest) - if he was tense - i would gladly recomend him for use as a tornaquet - i am simply amazed at the little boys power!!!

    ***Material below a tad graphic - younger readers - and those with a sensative stomach - beware! - you've been warned

    remember the movie anaconda - yeah - that cheaply made garbage flick...

    there was a corny scene in there where the anaconda ate a black panther (the animal - lol) - and the scene "closed" with the panthers eyeball laying on the ground - showing that it had been squeezed so tight its eye poped out....

    this sort of thing isnt far from the truth

    my yellow - who is just over 3 foot i think - takes 2med or 1 large mouse a week - and when he coils it - i have see the eyes of a mouse bug out to the point they come out of the socket

    and on an even worse note - he will sometimes squeeze prey items so hard - that he forces an abdominal tear with subsequent pressure essentially disembowling the mouse....

    none of my other snakes do this - only him - but it is quite frequent - and quite nasty...

    for anyone who read this and lost lunch - or is to young to know what the word "subsequent" means - i warned ya that it was a tad gross ... take heed nexttime

    he'll occasionally squeeze, make a mess, and abandon it - i dont think you want a pick of a mouse with its inards pushed through the abdomin - its quite nasty - and not to fun to clean up - but IF its fresh - meaning he did it - left it - and you go RIGHT in and get it - and reoffer it to him - he typically takes - i will do my best to get some pics up as soon as possible - but im afraid it may be a day or two - as 1 - i kick myself in the rear for allowing it to happen - but i upgraded to winxp pro and left it with no protection - didnt even download the new security patches - procrastinated

    last night - our PC was hit...and hit hard...

    i recognize the virus that was loaded as i have written one like it (dont point fingers - it was a school project - i have a degree in computer programming)

    it is uploaded and autoran - it reboots the computer - catches windows before the directory and file level securities and restrictions take place - and starts wiping out files - system files, config files, anything specified within the code...

    then crashes the machine

    go to cut it back on - you get an NTLOADER not found error

    NTLOADER is a WinXP bootfile and is the first file winxp (or any 32 bit Microsoft NTFS Formated OS) looks for - and if it cant find it - BOOM - lockup - says files missing - and to "press any key to reboot"

    if you gave it NTLOADER from the windows disk - it would find that - and when it couldnt find the next file - it would ask for that...

    the virus i wrote took out over 1000 files throughout windows - from everywhere including the system and system32 directories - the windows directory - the root directory - which is where your boot files are "hidden"...

    it would be a headache to spend all that time on reloading the files - and odds are - windows wouldnt function properly anyway - as with the programs we loaded have changed some config files for windows - and loading a config file that hasnt recieved these changes would make windows do what windows does best

    i am going to reload the OS - get back online - download my fav freeware antivirus software - and activate the basic defaul windows firewall - download the win updates - and then add a firewall from a collection of softwares that i have accumulated

    i have a little windows 98 laptop - but i am going to load slackware linus on it...

    all that would only take 2 hours or so - but we are ALSO going to be getting our iguana tonight!

    ill get pics up of THAT too - as soon as our Computer is fixed
