Re: Atticus is growing :)

Found an odd but fun new place to take pics of Atticus! Kinda funny, I had just gotten him out when suddenly I had to go to the bathroom, I noticed how great the light was in there for him and that the TP holder would make a great perch

Still can't quite capture the full rainbow effect though!

Re: Atticus is growing :)

Gorgeous! Indeed, rainbow boas always glow so much more in real life than on camera. I always imagine all rainbow boa pictures with more iridescence, haha.

Atticus is looking great!

Re: Atticus is growing :)

Awww he looks great! And LOL most unique perch ever!

(If you're having trouble with color, the best shots are often outdoors ones.)

Re: Atticus is growing :)

Yeah I need to try outdoor shots and maybe a camera besides the one on my phone
I can't wait til he's full grown, I work at a store that sells reptile supplies (among other things) and I keep planning out his big enclosure, so hard to resist doing it now! I know myself though and if he's not at least close to full size when I move him in then I'll feel like he's outgrown it one day.

Re: Atticus is growing :)

I've had Atticus for one year now! He's grown from a little 35 gram string to 160 grams! Only ever struck at me once, never refused a meal, and never had a bad shed 😃 Couldn't have asked for a better first snake!

Re: Atticus is growing :)

Atticus should finally be breaking 200 grams by his next feeding Just a happy growing boy!



Wish he'd get his white walls going like this^ more often!

Re: Atticus is growing :)

I find that they like to get white walls when its dark and no ones looking. Definitely brings out their colors. Atticus is looking great, seems to be holding that color/pattern pretty well

Re: Atticus is growing :)

The only thing I've noticed fading on him is his little yellow crescents, they brighten up again a bit with his white walls still but they are barely visible otherwise. The rest of his patterning is holding strong though
