Sanji

I got this little male last October, but at the time I had planned on getting two BRBs, so I wanted to wait to introduce him until then. Well, I got the second snake I planned on, even though it wasn't a BRB. haha

He was born on August 1, 2014, and came to me at 40 grams and about 2 months old. He's now 71 grams, eating 5-7 gram fuzzy mice every 10 days. He came from a high red pairing, but is starting to turn out more of an orange color.

Humidity hasn't been as big of an issue as I thought it would be, and I've had nothing but perfect sheds from him. He's extremely laid back, he only bit me once, when I unboxed him. Other than that, he's never hissed, struck, or posed at me, although he has given little huffs if he's in shed or occasionally out of shed. He's also very active, exploring and climbing his vine at night, and quite often sleeps out in the open or on top of his vine. During the day, he's in one of his hides and may have his head out of the entrance of one of hides, so not shy at all either.

The day he arrived (he arrived in shed but still had a perfect shed a few days later):


And his size now:


And some other random photos. Some are phone photos and some are photos from my Canon.

Deep in shed, he looks like a ghost of a snake!

Re: Sanji

Pics continued!





He's been getting a lot lighter during his light phases lately, and nowadays even his head lightens up, whereas it used to stay dark.

Re: Sanji

Very nice!! Love his pattern, almost like somebody zipped him up wrong (with the spots not aligning ). I thought about naming my purple Sanji but went for Zuko because it sounded better with Xena.

Re: Sanji

I named him that because of his zig-zagged eyebrow. And yeah, I thought so, too, just makes him more interesting.

Re: Sanji

Beautiful young rainbow, personally I like the oranges more than the high reds (in rainbow boas, lol.) So you've had him all this time and didn't tell us? Now that the secret is out you'll have to update your signature.

I originally wanted to buy a male and female at the same time, but circumstances only allowed me to get one at the time. So I waited until I could get another one before I introduced him. I ended up getting a retic instead. haha So probably going to be my last addition for at least 1-2 years.

Re: Sanji

I only clicked on this cause I wanted to see if you named him after Sanji from One Piece, given the eyebrow reference you take it you did. But you know, Sanji needs a lady, haha. Beautiful snake though. If you get a female what are you gonna name her?

I have a cat named Zoro, just felt like a sharing that.

I did, actually! haha

I was thinking about getting him a nice female, but at the moment I'm not really up to breeding so he's just going to be a pet.

As far as names, I wouldn't know until I met her!

Thanks for all the compliments everyone, he's a very lovely little guy if I do say so myself. (Definitely no bias here, nuh uh.)

Re: Sanji

Well, Sanji's in shed again, which makes two snakes right now, as Bud is deep in shed.

Re: Sanji

He's about 80 grams last I weighed him, and I decided to take him out to let him crawl around and even gave him a chance in a tree. He didn't seem too big of a fan, though. He just sat there. haha It may be something for him to get used to, or maybe I should let him climb on his own next time.

He's turning a very...interesting color to say the least.

In the shade with his colors dulled....


How he looks in the sun. The green grass does weird things to his colors, this is actually accurate to how he looks in the sun and in the grass. He doesn't look as much like a badly-contrasted photo in my hands in the sun, and looks rather brown in the shade.










BRBs have some cool scales.

Re: Sanji

Sanji is looking great, love the iridescence in the sunlight.
I was thinking about letting a couple of my DRMB's try out a tree, but given their preference for climbing I'm not sure it's wise, lol. I can just imagine myself standing there trying to figure out how to get a snake down out of a tree after it's climbed out of reach...
