Best gift ever

Best gift ever

Postby CarlaSmit87 » Mon Jan 24, 2011 9:57 am

I got these as my christmas / Birthday gift (as it is inbetween them).
Firstly I got a pair of whitelip babies. These are my first hots and they are just the cutest little things ever. Still have to take their pinks from me but previous owner assured they took pinks from him.
Then I also got an amazon tree boa, he is quite fiesty! But he eats like a monster, he's about 1m and a beauty. Here's the pics!

Very nice Carla. Hope they give you lots off happiness!

I am also looking into white lips as a possible future pet. But that might be 2 or 3 years down the line.

Only in July Silvrav (but I try to buy one reptile a month at least).
So I make every month my Birth day (or my favourite is that I tell my girlfriend I bought it for her).
Carla, they are stunners, congrats again.

Nice! Please keep us updated with your progress on feeding pinks to the Whitelips...

Thanks! I have wanted to keep whitelips for ages, but snakes that are difficult to feed put me off.

I'm very excited to find out how things work out for you, because if Carla can do it then hopefully I can too!
