Sadly not, Dine off the Lamprophis forum offered her male for sale I believe and I was thinking say €50 - smashing, job done but she was asking €120! And without any possibility of finding it a mate in the forseeable future, I thought 120 euros was a bit much (especially since I was completely broke and had no way of getting it from Germany to Scotland at the time - lol) so gave it a by.
Kinda regret it though as, in hindsight, if I had one, I'd only need to find 1 other, rather than having none and needing to find 2.


Very Pretty, Fooble, I'd love to find wild Housies - will need to, some day, get myself a passport and to South Africa for a spot of field herping!

It was asked how one would differentiate between a T+Snow and a regular T+ - since I now have regular hatchling T+ at my disposal - so to speak... I've taken a few shots:
First up the T+ - nice and definite yellow.

Now the T+ Snow - much paler, more pink-pale yellow.

And together for direct comparison, though the Snow was attempting to be the front runner.

As we can see, there is a definite difference in colour here - I can't help but wonder if perhaps some of the animals regarded as being 'regular T+' and 'just varied' are actually Snows....

I was holding the T- Snow earlier too, with a slight backlight he went near enough completely see through - I could see the blood pumping through his veins and everything - it was fascinating yet disgusting. Sadly he never sat still for a photograph - I reckon that would have been interesting!
He should 'thicken up' a bit with age and stop being see through. I hope.
Cheers,
Erik

OK well one egg has hatched! Nothing too exciting because it looks average for now :) very healthy though :) the anery markings are very apparent but will have to see how well the red comes through after its first shedding and after some growth :)
