Thumbs up New Snake

Alrighty I got myself a snake! This guy is from a reptile store owned by breeders - He is 5 years old and was sold as a baby to some guy who went off to college and returned him to the breeders. Just a basic pueblan milk snake. Also fun fact - His dad not only escaped his cage but was found outside in the parking lot years ago. Lmao.
I need to think of a name for this guy. Suggestions welcome.

Re: New Snake

Congratulations on your new little guy and I'd call him Spot but then again you have to remember I'm Irish

Re: New Snake

Congrats on the new milk. How's its demeanor? My Apricot Pueblan is super flighty and hates being touched let alone handled. He will musk me at any chance. If I'm trying to over food and he gets spoiled by my movements he will fling musk with his tail.

Re: New Snake

Very handable, energetic and wants to be on the move but not trying to fly away.
I think I have decided on the name Sibyl.

Re: New Snake

Sibyl is a good name but I still think Spot is better

Isn't your milk young? That's pretty typical of Pueblans. Mine, and others that I have worked with, were all flighty when they were young and musked constantly. Over time they will calm down. Mine is still active and on the move when I handle him, but not in a nervous way. I can't even remember the last time he musked.

Re: New Snake

A great deal of pueblans never calm down completely and are very wirey but they usually outgrow the musk like Bandit said.

Very nice pick up, Jane!

Yep, mine is still a young one under a year old.

I'd expect that flightiness for at least another year or two.

Re: New Snake

Great looking milk, I really like the pueblan milks, like the natural coral snake look. If it wasn't for they tend to be hidden most of the time and musk a lot I might have one.

Re: New Snake

A couple updated pictures! He is doing very well and he even took a F/T mouse this morning.
