The Life of Bean (BRB)

This is Bean (Jelly Bean David Hisselhoff)

He started his life in a warehouse deep in Hollywood Florida, where they supply reptiles to pet stores and large companies all over the US.

Bean:
"One day, a walking tree showed up, took me out of my shoe box, and proceeded to hold each one of my roommates while I held on for dear life.

My roommates are all going back in their boxes, but I won't let go... I know a good thing when I see it. I'm going home on this tree!"

And so the adventure begins...

I started my adventure on Amtrak. A 16 hour train ride as a smuggled passenger. But it was quite pleasant, I kept warm under my tree when necessary. Had water when I needed it, and I was actually calm, if not a little curious through the experience. (OK, I slept through most of it!) LOL

Here is my traveling bag so nobody knew I was a snake

I was estimated to be 3 months old, so from this day forward, my official birthday will be October 22nd, 2015.

Re: The Life of Bean (BRB)

I was a calm fellow right from the start. A little strange for a Rainbow, I know. But I'm proud to be different. I have never struck, or even huffed at my new family, and I'm a perfect eater too. Here are some pics in FL on purchase day.

Re: The Life of Bean (BRB)

After setting up a temporary home, I settled in nicely with my new family. I have never been nervous, and I enjoy being socialized without any signs of stress

As a juvenile, I do live in an aquarium, but many modifications have been made, including a plexiglass cover under the screen top. Works great for heat and humidity control, as proof shows from my awesome shedding skills

I'm going to have to get a better way to post pics, or I'll be doing this forever... (Frustrated and taking a break) LOL

Re: The Life of Bean (BRB)

jellybean is a real beauty. enjoyed his life story! lucky devil! i love riding on amtrak. don't think it would be much fun in a bag, though-you couldn't go to the cafe car for a glass of wine.

Re: The Life of Bean (BRB)

Thanks Albert! Thank you Marvel...

MacandChz: he went to the cafe car too... No problem staying under my blanket while I hung out drinking a beer

Although he prefers to drink at home

Re: The Life of Bean (BRB)

Bean has quite the fashion sense sometimes, too

He especially likes hubby's glasses

Re: The Life of Bean (BRB)

Thank you Danny and Tsubaki!

Q: Bean has those extra spots in his circles on his back (I don't know the proper lingo) and has kept them now for 11 months.

Any idea if this is something he may hold onto in adulthood?
