Female Prasina

I found the female out roaming around her tub the last couple nights, they're both usually tucked up in a cave or duck into one when I open the lid. She didn't, so I pulled her out for a few minutes while I changed their water bowls and grabbed a quick cell phone pic. Growing quite nicely, though even at their current size they still only want fuzzy mice. Anything larger is simply ignored, but it doesn't seem to be stunting their growth.

She didn't appreciate being picked up, tagged the back of my other hand, no pain and very little blood. If I hadn't seen her bite I wouldn't have known she had, very quick hit-and-run. She did calm down after a minute or so of rapid movement trying to get away and held the same position until I allowed her to slither back into her tub.



Here's a pic taken 9 months ago:

I found a breeder/seller on fauna classifieds last year, had a pair shipped last February during an unseasonably warm spell of weather.

Here's a couple closeup pics of the male, he wouldn't hold still like the female for a full body shot. Isn't easy to wrangle an active rat snake with one hand and use the cell phone for pics with the other one, lol.
