    Picked this one up at the Hamburg reptile show a few weeks ago. Labeled as a jungle cross, so daddy was a jungle and momma was a mystery. I suspect there's some coastal in the family tree, but doesn't really matter in any case. I'm not looking to breed, don't even know the sex for that matter.
    Great disposition, hasn't struck or bitten at all. Took a couple weeks before it would eat a f/t fuzzy mouse, then went into shed for another week +, just finished tonight. The skin on the head came off in little pieces, the rest wasn't moving, so I gave it a warm bath and then folded a wet washcloth over it this afternoon and placed it back in the cage, under the ceramic heat bulb. When I got home from work tonight it hadn't moved much, but the old skin was softened up nicely, and with a little help it all came off cleanly.
    Will offer a f/t day-old quail chick tonight, gotta be hungry again by now.
    Fresh from the show, edge of a 29 gallon aquarium:

    Freshly shed and feeling much better:
