    We are just too excited not to share this !! :D
    We're not due to get him until November/December, but we just received some pics from the breeder, and I wanted to share.

    Have you ever seen such an unusual and stunning rat snake?!?? :D
    The two bottom pics are of the babies, the top left is the mother, and the top right the father, showing how the cute little corn-like babies will look when they grow up! These stunners are Royal Diadem or Egyptian Rat Snakes. Unfortunately there are only young males left, so we will hopefully get a female friend for our little guy some time next year. Roll on Nov/Dec!! :p

    Lol they do don't they - I think the babies look like a mixture of a corn snake and a western hognose!! :p

    The adults are amazing though, they look like no snake I've ever seen before, hopefully our beauty will be as stunning when it's older.

    Thanks Ken :)

    They are Royal Diadems, also known as Egyptian Rat Snakes. Not much about them around on the net, but they are beautiful snakes. :)
