    Hey Folks,
    I've enjoyed trolling HC for a while now, but haven't posted since anything I had any knowledge about had promptly been answered =) but that's a reason I fell in love with these forums! Anyway, I'm just bored at work right now but planning on taking some new pictures of Dr. Gonzo, my yearling ball, when I get home so I'll be sure to post those!

    Apparently my girlfriend lost the camera during our recent move, so I was forced to take them with my iPhone >.< . But oh well... Here he is! Don't mind the messy wiring.. we just moved in. The cage behind him is about to become his feeding cage as soon as the custom wire top for the new one I ordered comes in.
    =)

    His head looks so clean cut, has he just shed or just that he has very fine features. I see that he is off to explore.

    Welcome! Dr Gonzo is beautiful! How old is he?

    He's actually due for a shed, he's just naturally that handsome =), his previous owner, who only had him for a few months, didn't really know how old he was. My guess is about a year now, as I've had him for about 9 months.

    Just out of curiosity- was he named for Dr. Gonzo Gates from the show Trapper John M.D.? It's the only Dr. Gonzo I know of. I know I am showing my age-43 years. He really is quite a looker, I love ball pythons, as well as any other snake.

    Glad I'm not the only one. Thanks for the back up- us "old folks" have to stick together, when the deafening sounds of our creaking bones afford us the opportunity.

    Actually Dr. Gonzo was a nickname for Hunter S. Thompson, referring to his form of Journalism and the way he threw himself into the story. I just liked the name, and considering he is my first actual pet reptile (aside from a handfull of garters I caught and kept as a child) everything revolves around him =) . I've fostered a few over the last couple years, but always adopted them out to new owners, but now my current girlfriend loves Gonzo, she actually got him for me! So she's a keeper =).

    LOL NOW you are showing your age!
    I'd wager 75% of this forum have absolutely no idea who you are talking about!

    Thanks for clearing that up. As Merlin said I am one of the 75% who has not heard of him. But you can bet I will be doing more research on him.
