Working on a logo for my reptile breeding biz. Man, I am NOT good at logo design D: I just don’t have the right visual vocabulary for good logo design. So I do as best I can with what I’ve got. I really wanted to include all three reptiles that I breed: crested geckos, ball pythons (soon), and hognose snakes (also soon).
My fave of this batch is the top left and I’m going to try to work that into a more solid design. I want something simple and homey with maybe pale colors. Happy and gentle, you know. That’s how I see my reptiles.
Anyways, gonna work on this some more until I get something I can use as a facebook/tumblr/business card logo. Wish me luck -___-

These are supercute, I agree that I like the top left best. Can’t wait to see it finished!

alouncara asked: Do Asian rat snakes musk like NA rat snakes? Or are the more prone to biting and using their threat displays?

They can do all of the above pretty liberally. The weapon of choice depends on the individual.

charizardamn asked: Whenever I'm having a bad day, I just remind myself that all of your red tailed green rat snakes are named after dragon age men and that a few are female (justice I know is but I can never remember about Fenris and Anders!)

Yeaaaah I wanted a green and silver pair for the longest time. It seemed like the natural naming scheme to work with.

(I’m also waiting for a blue beauty to come along so I can name it Cole)

Anders is my forever big ol’ girl.

Your Gonyo’s are so beautiful. Gosh I need more Asian rat snakes….       Some CB G.jansenii  especially the Salayar black locality would be wonderful but where the hell am I meant to get those from ha..

Thanks!

Those are rare imports (extremely rare for Salayar black) and I don’t know a single person that has bred those purely (not that they don’t exist, I just don’t know of anyone at all). So uh…. good luck on your quest and if you find any, let me know so I can grab one too.

There was a wc jansen girl that looked amazing on the market, but I don’t have the space for her until I move auugh. I really wouldn’t mind repeating Freitas’ work sometime.

Grumpy’s Origin Story (Part I)

Once upon a time there were six little eggs. There was Dolphins Egg, Flower Egg, Sunny Egg, Stars Egg, Cosmos Egg, and finally Grumpy Egg.

Why was she so, well, Grumpy? Because all of the other eggs used to laugh and call her names. They wouldn’t let poor Grumpy join in all their eggy games.

oh

my

god

do-not-enter-the-dogpark asked: I actually did, there just isn't a lot of information on the web about radiated rats. I got his set up down, but everytime I look up stuff about behavior, I get -so- many different results! It's insane. Some people say theyre decent, some say theyre demonic, some say it depends on the snake. xx

And yes, I was expecting it. I didn’t spent 100 dollars on a snake just because it looked pretty. But I wanted to know advice for preventing it so he -doesnt hurt himself-. He gets stuff in his water a lot so I have to reach in to clean the bowl so he doesnt drink nasty stuff. I’m not saying I think I won’t get bit with an old world rat, because I know I will. I want a way to lessen the amount of it so I don’t hurt his teeth.

And I knew you had quite a few old worlds, so I thought I might aswell ask.. I really didn’t know any other tumblr users with more then one old world rat or a lot of experience. I’veg iven him extra hiding areas and even crinkle bedding to borrow in to make him feel safer, but as soon as he hears sound or I open the cage, he just bolts out and goes at me. He will bolt -out of the cage- to get in my face.

Woah down there friend, yeesh.

Here’s the thing. I don’t know you from anyone. A hundred dollars really isn’t that much if it comes to someone whim-buying a more obscure, advanced kind of snake without knowing much about it, and you asked me a question that just sounded like typical behavior. More typical for wild caughts, but yes, it’s within their normal behavior range for them to in fact launch out at you (Fenris used to do this quite a lot, and I likened him to a harmless mamba for a while). It really does depend on the snake, just like you read.

You are not going to hurt his teeth. I’m not sure how you think he will. Biting you won’t hurt him, biting a glove won’t hurt him, and dislodging teeth is relatively natural for snakes anyway. Some more than others, but it’s true. Anyone who doesn’t believe that should take a look at chondro poop sometime.

Now, I could be reading this entirely wrong, but no need to feel hurt or spam the ask box just because I don’t immediately answer. I run this blog while I’m working, and sometimes things take priority.

sinforthesenators asked: Hey, could I ask you a question about corn snakes? It's my first snake and I'm kinda worried that I'm doing everything wrong! My corn snake's an adult and I've had him for about 2 months. A few weeks ago he shed his skin and and I tried feeding him with smallish mice (He hasn't eaten anything whilst in my care before) and he refuses to eat at all! I've tried google and stuff, and wondered about maybe he's nervous or something..if you could help, I'd love you forever! (sorry if I'm bothering you)

I’m sorry, I want to help, but you’re really not giving me any information to work with! I really need a full rundown of his cage, preferably a photo of the setup, with temps you’re providing. You could even make a post and then send me a note when you’ve posted it, or something.
