Well you know me, not into captive herps that much apart from my course snakes. However, needed something for my talks to schools etc. So meet my new aquisition, 'Rocky' the hatchling Afroc.

He is a handsome little fellow isnt he. Congrats.

Afrocks are really cool especially at that size.

Just look at that face!

Remember to handle him almost weekly or else they just turn into feeding machines. I have some which are no longer tame because I neglected to handle them often enough. They continue to feed like demons but also bite like demons.

And s&*t like demons - that smell should be used for bio warfare, nothing gets rid of it. I have tried sand, salt, lemon juice and half the cleaning products on the market. It's just NASTY!

Only snake I know where everybody rushes for the sharp end, nobody wants the bottom end. The car hasn’t even come to a full stop and all the car doors are open – people running like crazy to get there first. Bribery and corruption doesn’t even work!

Little Rocky is doing well; giving him 1 mouse a week and also handling him for an hour or so a day.

Cool pic! Is that a double reflection I see in the eye of the serpant ;) Come on, we want more photos... of some smaller beasts as well!

Hehehe. Can't your body be used as the commander unit? The guy I know with the D80 (I think) uses his body and always brags about how well it works, so it must be simple and easy to set up...

That's so funny. I'll try it in future.

So why did you call him Rocky Tony? ;)
