Artemis - Russian Rat Snake

Hi,
here I will post new pics and updates... some of you may know Artemis from >this< thread, unfortunately all pics were removed because of problems with image hosting, so sometimes I will add here some old pics too

Today I was able to take some photos... they are not the best, but shows how much s/he grown.

Artemis at 6 months old (shortly after I get him/her)






And now, nearly 2 years old

Re: Artemis - Russian Rat Snake

Pretty snake. I really like the adult colors/pattern.

Re: Artemis - Russian Rat Snake

eminart, s/he should develop more yellow on rings with time But I personally prefer their colors as an hatchling/juvie, that brown&cream pattern was really nice.

Re: Artemis - Russian Rat Snake

I love how their adult coloration is similar to mangrove snakes, but without the venom or attitude, and with much simpler care requirements. I wish I could have one!

Re: Artemis - Russian Rat Snake

Haha, yeah, mangroves are great, but their attitude + venom are too much for me

And russians are rather "friendly" snakes, calm, inquisitive, don't mind handling... Artemis is just an exception to that rule. Although with age s/he slowly calms down so maybe s/he will develop more typical attitude.

Re: Artemis - Russian Rat Snake

Very nice transition! Can't wait to see him become even more amazing! I love to see such drastic changes in colouration as animals grow.

Re: Artemis - Russian Rat Snake

Yeah, I'm really curious how big s/he will be, and how much yellow s/he'll develop on rings

A few months ago we bought a new camera, and today I finally start to learning how to use it =D

Feeding time! It was the first time when s/he get two mouse at once, and at first it was "what? two? how can i choose which one should i eat?".

Re: Artemis - Russian Rat Snake

I love how he tasted both of them before deciding which one to eat first
