What I love about Indigos

Hi friends,

Of course, there are MANY things to love about these wonderful creatures! But as I meandered through various species over at KS today, I was reminded of one of the wonderful things: Drymarchon people prefer to be nice to mother nature.

The ad which inspired this thought was for a Reticulated python:
"Male lavender albino Super Tiger Motley Super Dwarf Golden Child"

Poor snake.....

Oh yes, it was also cage cleaning day.....Remove hideboxes, after snake launches himself towards first thing that moves. Encourage snake to enter hidebox. Proceed to clean cage. Snake wants to watch. Snake wants to explore. Snake wants to go investigate the cats, who are also watching. All is well, five cages later. Snakes await the feeding regimen...

I love my couperi.

I hear that!

I guess one of my biggest regrets about moving to Florida from Maryland was that I had to leave my indigo colony behind.

Before moving I contacted Florida Wildlife officials and asked if there was any way possible that I could bring them down here with me. Nope. They told me to be certain to NOT have indigo snakes in my possession when I crossed the Florida border.

Oh damn Rich! I can't take my babies with me if I move back to Maui, and I've been thinking about Florida, where I've also lived before.

I certainly trust that you investigated fully......Did you have Federal permits, and Florida Fish & Game still said no?

Because, you know, I've lived in many places.....and I prefer the warm ones. My present locale is just too cold, six months of the year!

I've lived in the West Texas desert (Big Bend), and loved it.....but Indigos don't put up with extreme heat, and the power goes off sometimes....

I parted with all my snakes, when I moved to Maui for over a decade. But I don't think I can bring myself to part with the couperi....they're my family, just like my cats. ( 4 cats moved from Maui with me - I don't leave family behind).

By the way, today after cage cleaning came feeding time: 5 snakes greedily consumed 19 quail, chicks, and XL mice. (And then crapped in the newly cleaned cages -- oh, well. Now I have to go clean again.)
