Re: Atticus is growing :)

Little update on my boy He was just over 30 grams when I got him in September and today he weighed in at just over 100! He's such a great snake, getting to be more active when he's out, I'm thinking his confidence is growing along with his body

Couple pics from today



Comparison of his colors a few days apart

Re: Atticus is growing :)

I always look forward to his updates. I really am jealous lol. Seems like he's got the colors of a colombian and pattern of a brazilian. Perfect mix. Do his markings seem to have lightened any like colombians do?

Re: Atticus is growing :)

So far his markings are staying nice and dark, which is what I was hoping for when I heard he was a mix. When do colombians' patterns typically lighten? The colombian colors really came out after his last shed, thats when that picture on the left was taken but then a few days later he had darkened up again. And by the way I'm jealous of your retic!

Yeah, I think it'd be cool if he keeps his colors. Colombians have such nice, earthy colors. It doesn't necessarily happen at a certain time, just gradually. I could tell the difference month-to-month with mine. I might be able to dig up some pics tomorrow. Thanks lol he's a handful, but we'll save that for another thread

Re: Atticus is growing :)

It's cool to see how Atticus is doing. I have a CRB/BRB cross as well, and I'm curious how she will likely look as she grows.

You're in the Idaho area? I am in Boise

Re: Atticus is growing :)

Yup I'm in Nampa. Do you know how old yours is? Wouldn't be surprised if they were from the same litter.

Re: Atticus is growing :)

I got Chaska in May, and she was about a month old it seems (That is my uneducated guess, there). I bought her from the guy at Rockin Reptiles in downtown Boise. She is currently 57 grams, and somewhere around....2 or 2.5 feet in length? Almost as long as my arm. So it seems she is younger.

I forgot to ask the guy how old she was exactly, and where she came from....I was too excited about buying my first snake, haha! Maybe at some point I'll go back and see if he remembers.

Re: Atticus is growing :)

Hm she is quite a bit smaller weight wise. I just figured they aren't that common so to see two so close together I'd think they were from the same litter. Either way looks like they're both great snakes

Re: Atticus is growing :)

Time for more pics! He's now as long as my legs! Growth has slowed a bit again, gotta love those spurts though!
