Re: Meet Jenkins, the Vietnamese Blue Beauty.

It seems some of my photos are having issues. Here's a video about Blue Beauties, and a bit of talk about their color.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gTm19kAXYh4


Jenkins should shed in a day or two, will try and post some better quality pics then.

Re: Meet Jenkins, the Vietnamese Blue Beauty.

Last Saturday Jenkins and I went to an art festival, and we helped watch a booth all afternoon. He's doing fine meeting new people, very calm and happy! Here he is, 26 months old now. His tail is at the tip of my left hand (in the sleeve), you can see how big he is already! They grow up so fast....

That is awesome! Blue beauties are such pretty snakes! Hopefully he was well received at the festival. =)

Re: Meet Jenkins, the Vietnamese Blue Beauty.

Only two people were not happy about a snake being there, and it was not a problem. The kids loves him, several people who never touched a snake got to for the first time, and I got to teach a lot of people things. Comments went like this-

"Is that a poisonous snake?"- I don't know, I never tried to eat him.

"Our significant others don't like snakes, but we wanted to meet him."(Two women)- They don't seem very significant to me!

""Can I come over and pet him?"- Are you talking about me or the snake, we are both very friendly!

It was a great day for the both of us.

Re: Meet Jenkins, the Vietnamese Blue Beauty.

Wow...looks nice. Grew quite a bit since your last pics. My VBB is growing quickly too. She's just over 4' now and almost a year old.

Re: Meet Jenkins, the Vietnamese Blue Beauty.

Here is a video of Jenkins eating his dinner. Apologies for the camera quality, the lighting was very poor. He has never turned down food, but is rather shy about eating in public. He's in blue now, hopefully I'll get the good camera and some great pics of him next week.

Re: Meet Jenkins, the Vietnamese Blue Beauty.

That's a cool video Klinger. Jenkins definitely looks much greyer now than in your earlier pics where he was more olive colored.

Re: Meet Jenkins, the Vietnamese Blue Beauty.

There is still a ton of green on this guy, but it's cool because very few people can identify what he is, and I like that. it starts a lot of conversation. Every shed I wait for a magical blue change, though...

Re: Meet Jenkins, the Vietnamese Blue Beauty.

There's quite a bit of variation in colors among snakes, yours may just be a greenish phase for life. Doesn't matter to the snake... lol.
For that matter, you could breed him/her and see if the color carries over to the offspring, could eventually become a line of green beauty snakes. How awesome would that be?

Re: Meet Jenkins, the Vietnamese Blue Beauty.

Here's a photo I took today, left handed with a right handed camera. Big snakes are so hard to photograph by yourself!!! He's somewhere between 8-9 feet right now.
