    I finally got out to the Nashville Repticon today, and got my first BP pickup. I scored a lesser from Double K Reptiles (very pleasant to deal with), for a really reasonable price. I threw Mocha *not a mocha morph, I just like the name* on the scale when I got him home, and he weighed in at a nice 206g. I'm going to give him a couple weeks to settle in to his new enclosure before I pull him out to get some decent pictures in the light tent. Crappy iPhone pictures will have to do for now, I will update in a couple weeks.




    Don't worry, the temps and humidity are adjusted now. I had just turned on the light so the ambient was low.

    Congrats Dalton! You know how excited I am for ya man = )

    He's looking great! Like that dorsal pattern near the neck, very cool. Keep us posted on him and be generous with pictures!

    Haha yup ;D I'll update with probably 15+ pictures soon lol.

    HE HAS A FACE. I just don't have a picture of it yet. One of his spots makes a O: face. It's amazing.

    Good news, he pooped about 30 minutes ago. He was staring off into space, so I was curious as to what he was doing. When I walked over I discovered that he was releasing a compacted rat pup out of his bowels lol.

    He took his first f/t meal like a champ. He was feeding live for the breeder, so I figured I'd try to convert him. He slammed it within a minute of introducing the rat.
