    Just curious, is that fish that you are feeding the babies?
    They are just too sweet and tiny:x

    Man! You have one heck of a collection! I think I'm going to come visit you for a while... possibly a few years at a time? lol

    So gorgeous! I had no idea the extent of morphs they are capable of producing. The one with the screaming blue has got to be my most favorite ;) Beautiful!

    Yes, in nature the first thing they eat is generally minnows and tadpoles. Since they are way too small to even consider any rodents, I usually mince up a mixture of pinkies and fish, gradually reducing the fish until they are big enough to just accept pinks.

    A friend of mine has a tool that looks out of this world, it used to grind up pinkies with different size holes for each passing slowing getting smaller and smaller.

    Edit, its called a pinky pump! Weirdest thing I ever seen used for snakes

    I just dice them up while they are frozen, it's a lot cleaner...

    They look awesome! The babies are so tiny lol, I don't think I would ever want to deal with anything too small to take a pinkie. Fantastic collection you have :)

    You want to see small.... I have worked with and bred Dekayi snakes, they are small.

    So a hatchling puget sound is to small to take the smallest size pinkie? How do you dice the pinkies? I can just see pinkie guts going everywhere :-&

    That is gross and yet very very cool. I didn't realize snakes would eat mice milkshakes.

    I chop them up while frozen, it's not bad at all... they are not messy when frozen.

    "Sunshine" the yellow garter I found in November with the nasty tail injury..

    I like his cream white chin. Compliments the yellow nicely.

    And this is the red/orange snake the guy up the road was going to chop up with a shovel, he called me to come remove her... she was so pretty I just decided to keep her. Capturing her true colour is difficult, she has a copper red hue with a dark orangish yellow dorsal stripe.
