2 New Additions 😀

I received two new additions to my collection/addiction. The both came from Big Apple Pets in Florida. The first is a hatchling Apricot Pueblan Milksnake and the other is a hatchling Black Milksnake. I really only got the pueblan to get free shipping. They're both beautiful and I'm happy I added the pueblan. I'll post pics later this afternoon.

Black Milk



Apricot Pueblan Milk



Pay no attention to the Sesame Street band aid. I cut my finger trimming a pork shoulder for the smoker this morning and it was the first one I found.

Thanks Albert! It will be quite neat to see the black milk go through its color change progression.

Congrats on the beautiful new additions Dave. Those Black Milks are very impressive animals. The Pueblan is a stunner too.

Re: 2 New Additions 😀

Thank you El Ziggy. Been looking for a black milk, but they're not available too often. Never would have thought to check Big Apple for them, it was simply by accident I found him there.

Re: 2 New Additions 😀

Were you able to have the snake sexed and choose the gender before you bought him?

He sure is a looker. Both of them are! What did you name them?

They only had males available for the black milks and the pueblan I didn't specify bc I don't have breeding plans for it.

So far they don't have names yet. Sometimes a names jumps right out to me and others I need to have around for a bit to see what name is appropriate.

Snapped a quick pic of these two feeding. The black milk color is definitely darkening over the past few months.



Pueblan is a sneaky feeder.
