I'm not exactly sure.. I've had her for about a year and a half... the guy said she was around three years old.. she was pretty small for three.. but, then, he was barely feeding her.. if I had to guess, I'd say between three and four years old now.. but I'll never really know for sure..

Wow this one is really beautiful and attractive one. You are lucky mate that you are enjoying the company of this beautiful. Look at the color. Simply beautiful.

dwg1211 01-20-2009 12:48 PM

thank you... we both got lucky the day I 'found' her.. she's the best pet snake I've ever had, and she was living in some pretty bad conditions..

saltydog 01-20-2009 01:03 PM

hope you do not mind me jumping in, that is a great looking snake.

dwg1211 01-20-2009 01:20 PM

one thing about this forum, we never mind anyone 'jumping in'... thank you, as well... it's been great having her.. very rewarding to see her thrive.. everyone loves her..

saltydog 01-20-2009 01:29 PM

I would love to work my way up to having a snake like saffron. That is one cool looking snake.

DodoBird27 01-20-2009 10:51 PM

I would love a burm too!! Unfortunately, dad doesn't agree with my idea to convert the shed into an enclosure hehe. Give me 20 years, out of collage with my own place... *dreamy*

lovesnuffles 01-20-2009 10:54 PM

Lol XD Dodo, you sound just like me.

frankywdmn 01-20-2009 11:32 PM

Yeah, I've often thought about turning one of the rooms in my house into a big cage. That would be sooo awesome!

dwg1211 01-24-2009 04:07 PM

won't be long now..

went out to get some pics of Saffron in shed.. and mist her cage/her.. just since this morning her eyes have cleared and her colors are back.. somewhat.. here are some pics.. you can see where some skin is already coming off.. maybe today will be the day..

parker 01-24-2009 04:44 PM

salty dog, that pic is hilariouse. you should teach him how to ride a skateboard like dogs. and i dont think i would put my snakes in my shed, it would be a ***** to keep at the right temps. but i do wanna become a breeder.

dwg1211 01-24-2009 08:06 PM

when I say, 'in shed', I'm referring to the shedding process... but her enclosure is in a shed.. can't have her in the house here.. it was a bit tricky to get it right, but I have undertank heat (flexwatt), a 150 watt ceramic heat emitter, and two 250 watt red heat lamps.. Ranco thermostat and timer control everything.. she is quite comfortable.. going to upsize her enclosure this spring..

parker 01-25-2009 12:37 AM

this is who im getting if i get one. im waiting for a reply from the breeder. he's 40$. im guesing he's captive bred and im waiting to see where he will be shipped from. He's so cute!!!!![IMG][/IMG]

DodoBird27 01-25-2009 01:25 AM

Does this mean you have convinced the parents? Or do they not know? xD

parker 01-25-2009 01:36 AM

they dont know. im gonna work on them 2 morrow.
he emailed me back. they are captive bred. its amazing how a snake that awesome looking and professionally bred is 30 dollars more than a ball python in petsmart.

DodoBird27 01-25-2009 03:07 AM

$30!! Wow thats a great deal! Is it a baby?

parker 01-25-2009 03:12 AM

Is actually 40$. Typo. Still good deal. If the pic is of the one I would get then I have no clue. He said he feeds them pinkeys. But it looks too big to be eating them. That reminds me what does F/T mean?

DodoBird27 01-25-2009 03:16 AM

Im pretty sure that F/T frozen/thawed, I think I remember someone telling me that at some point. Good looking snake too, I hope that you can get him!

parker 01-25-2009 03:26 AM

Maybe I'll get the 2 for 70$ deal. Jk. They're kill eachother on their way here!

dwg1211 01-25-2009 03:59 AM

yep.. he's a beaut!.. California Kingsnakes will eat other snakes, so I'd keep him by himself to be safe.. especially away from other males.. ;).. good luck!

Howitz12 01-28-2009 12:59 AM

Kinda startled him when I took this picture

This is my guitar case, not his habitat lol

parker 01-28-2009 01:07 AM

he's awsome. i would get a black mexican. their awsome.

DodoBird27 01-28-2009 01:15 AM

Hes a beautiful snake, I like the yellow pattern. Haha, that first pic is funny!

MainStick 01-28-2009 01:25 AM

Great snakes and I agree, that first pic is funny. It has that, "You better be checking with me before you do that again, bud" look.

Twitch_1993 01-28-2009 01:26 AM

Love the first pic, really nice looking king

dwg1211 01-28-2009 03:04 AM

very nice!.. great markings.. love the patches.. and under the bottom jaw and throat area in the first one.. sweet pattern!

frankywdmn 01-28-2009 03:05 AM

That is one awesome looking kingsnake!

Howitz12 01-28-2009 04:32 AM

hes still pretty small from others ive seen
But hes awesome
Well, he/she not really sure

lovesnuffles 01-29-2009 02:39 PM

Very pretty little snake. That guitar case looks pretty comfy, actually :P Lol. Move over little snakey!

Roy 01-31-2009 07:13 AM

Beautiful snake, he does look startled.

merryg2 02-12-2009 12:56 PM

Why his nose are red ... is he eating something or hurt himself. But I really like the colour combination of his skin. That simply great.

lovesnuffles 02-12-2009 01:19 PM

Merry, I think it's the blood from the mouse, because if you'll look, a couple of drops splattered onto the newspaper. My mice do that all the time when they're thawed. The snake isn't hurt. Just messy.

Roy 02-15-2009 09:56 AM

Cute snake Merry, yes as Snuffles says, thawed rats can be bleeders.

Howitz12 02-15-2009 09:59 AM

Yes, very nice snake, 1st pic makes him look huge, cus theres nothin to compare his size to

I`d like to share this pic of Amber doing her favourite thing, eating!

ashgray3 06-20-2009 05:45 PM

Wow awesome snakes, are they dangerous snakes?
Actually I would like to have a pet snake.
The problem is that I do have a phobia in snakes specially green ones :(.


lovesnuffles 07-02-2009 09:20 PM

ashgray, welcome :)

None of the snakes we have here are dangerous. I don't think any of our snakes are even mean. None of us are bitten by our pets often, and if we are, it's usually our fault.

I used to have a phobia of snakes also, and I believe the best way to get rid of your fear, is to face it. That's how I got over mine. I love telling the story of how I got interested in snakes :P Lol. It was a baby albino burmese python that did it for me. The guy thrust her into my arms and I fell in love o.o It was just that simple for me. My mom also got over her fear by handling my snakes. She loves to show them off to company now and can't get enough of Whiskey, my little red tail boa :)

Why are you afraid of green snakes? MOST green snakes are generally very tame, depending on where you live .... In the US, most are fair, at least xD Once you start getting to places like Asia and Europe and stuff, you have to start watching out.

DodoBird27 07-02-2009 09:48 PM

To be honest, I think it is totally awesome that you want a snake even though your afraid of them! They really are very sweet animals. They all have their own personality and some even grow quite attached to their owners.

tmmpin 07-03-2009 11:53 PM

Any animal can be dangerous (especially the 20 foot pythons and such). As long as the proper precautions are taken there is minimal danger.
Start off with something small like a corn or a ball python. Read all the care sheets and books you can.
It doesn't hurt to buy a book or two so you have it on hand at all times.
