Meet Jenkins, the Vietnamese Blue Beauty.

Hello everyone! I am a new member to your forum, and would like to introduce you to Jenkins. He's a nine month old VBB, and I've been working with him quite a bit to calm the beast down. I got him when he was only one month old, and there has been a lot of growth this past year!

This is not my first or only snake, but the one I know the least about, as there is very little information about them on the 'net.

I'm happy to be on your forum, and will be uploading many pics as this guy grows up! I suppose I could post pics of the 5x4x4 setup he will be moving into, once it gets started. Thanks for having me!

Re: Meet Jenkins, the Vietnamese Blue Beauty.

Here's a shot of him crawling down my arm towards the camera. I'd like to get a good shot of his length, but one handed photography is not easy as it is. I'll get a helper over one of these days...

The little guy mostly sleeps in his hide all the time, possibly because I'm feeding it too much. It is super active whenever it comes out, however, and doesn't show any signs of being overweight. Long, slender snakes are hard to adjust a diet for. It seems to be growing at the rate most do online, half an inch a week, so things seem good for now!

Re: Meet Jenkins, the Vietnamese Blue Beauty.

Welcome and I really like your first snake. I've had my eye on the Blue Beauties for a while now, but space limitations have kept me from taking the plunge. Very pretty snake.

Re: Meet Jenkins, the Vietnamese Blue Beauty.

Oh, it's not my first. I have a Sinoloan right now, and have had snakes on and off for years. This is the latest one, and it's taken two years to track down the breeder to get him.I'll make another post in the future of the Milksnake, and thanks for the welcome!

Re: Meet Jenkins, the Vietnamese Blue Beauty.

Uh, I'm confused, but from these pics it looks rather like normal Taiwanese, blues are.. more blue, like this (pic from pinterest), they are not having any yellow at all, even as an hatchlings:


But it's cool snake nonethless, one I'm dreaming about but I have not enough space. And welcome to the forum!

Re: Meet Jenkins, the Vietnamese Blue Beauty.

Most VBB hatchlings that I have seen start out olive green, and change with age. If you look at my other thread there is a link to a blogspot with a young Blue Beauty that doesn't blue until it is one year old. Definitive proof is forthcoming, as my snake will be one in July. There is no good documentation of this specie, something I hope to alleviate.

Edit- Not my other thread, the other thread about beauty snake owners. The credit is not mine.

Re: Meet Jenkins, the Vietnamese Blue Beauty.

Klinger, that's interesting, I was just curious, because there are different opinions about Blue Beauty's as hatchlings, I hope that yours will turn out super blue as an adult!

Re: Meet Jenkins, the Vietnamese Blue Beauty.

Yeah, I'm curious too. Gotta trust the breeder when there is no info on the net. You'll all find out when I do!!!

Re: Meet Jenkins, the Vietnamese Blue Beauty.

It's not a Taiwanese, judging by the lack of pattern on the front part of the body. But I agree, it's got too much olive coloration. So far as I'm aware, they don't change to blue as they age. A quick google search yielded this picture of a blue hatchling:


I'd guess that the one you have is a cross between the two.
