Talking Loxocemus bicolor arrived...

Well, she's not a colubrid, python, or boa - so where else would I post this?

So after a long and interesting trip to Edmonton, in which I discovered that I can almost never find an exit BEFORE I pass it...

0.1 AD LTC <i>Loxocemus bicolor</i> from Phil Blais, kindly shipped up by Grant of PCPC...

I apologize for the poor quality; taking pictures of new acquisitions is always tricky, as I ideally want to do it as fast as possible to avoid stressing the snake. In the brief time I was able to handle her, she seems like a real sweetie, though - and I noticed that they have an interesting habit of flattening out their bodies against the bottom of the enclosure to escape being picked up.

She still remains unnamed and unpaired, but hopefully I'll be able to import some mates from the US - I'm already looking at a couple of dealers. Anyone else working with this species? I'd love to compare notes.
