1st one of the year!

My beautiful eastern black neck garter courtesy of Albert! Got him this morning and man....he took my breath away!

Still needs a name. Thinking of something romantic (not romeo) due to the holiday!

Wow! What a beauty!

How about Sir Galant? He looks really galant, with that stripe down his back.

Re: 1st one of the year!

Welcome to the water snake world. You will enjoy him, I suggest giving him a enclosure as realistic as possible if you want to enjoy their true nature and clown like behavior.

Re: 1st one of the year!

Wow Mink, that's one amazing looking critter. That orange stripe is off the charts! You should name him Fabio. Didn't he used to make the ladies swoon?

Re: 1st one of the year!

As for a name how about Cyrano, in honor of Steve martins portrayal of the love sick character from the play. I feel Steve Martin and garters have quite a bit in common in the character department.

Re: 1st one of the year!

Lol, Meso.

I'm thinking Armani actually. And if he gets a gf in the future, sje can be Goochie haha.

He is a ways off from a permanent set up though. He (should be) the last snake for a while as all my savings will be going towards PVC enclosures.

Also, I was stunned at how amazing he looks! No offence Albert, but your pics couldn't touch how awesome he is in person! Lol.

No Mink! You have to name him Fabio. Have you seen this dude's hair?

LOL! Yes, I know Fabio! He also had his beautiful nose broken by a goose while riding in a roller coaster. Lol

Re: 1st one of the year!

LOL, I didn't know about the goose and the broken nose. I figured you were too young to even know he was Mink. You are wise beyond your years .

Re: 1st one of the year!

If 30 isn't young anymore I must be ancient at 51 . Any breeding plans for your garter(s) Mink?

Re: 1st one of the year!

Good to see he arrived to you in great shape Mink! He's already missed around here although I'm glad he's in good hands. He does have a shy personality until it's time to eat. Lol. Enjoy him.

Re: 1st one of the year!

Hats off to you again AL on another stunning critter you've produced. I can't remember if I saw your garter clutch.
