Kalrissan Rottweilers and Central Bearded Dragons
Lottie is an adult female Collett's Black Snake. Sadly, she has not had the best care prior to her arriving here and she came in quite poor condition. She had also received unknown injuries severe enough to require surgery and sutures to her tail area. She has permanent scarring and spinal damage.
After a bit of time to adjust to good husbandry and gentle care, Lottie has responded beautifully and is the best snake to handle. She has doubled her weight and shows no signs of discomfort from her injuries. She is very gentle and calm EXCEPT at food times: then she becomes psychotic!! But as soon as she has fed, she returns to her placid nature. The Black Snakes have a reputation for aggressive feeders and she takes up-keeping this reputation very seriously!! It certainly hasn't helped her to have had the start that she had. She is very reliable and predictable and it is important to give all reptiles (particularly venomous ones - a reliable routine).
Scarlet is a young Red Bellied Black
Snake and she is a great addition to our house. She's still growing but like all the Black Snakes, she loves her food!
So far, Scarlet is still getting acclimatized to light handling as it is very important not to over handle young reptiles. She will be upgraded to a larger enclosure when she grows and gains more confidence but so far, she is very well behaved and hooks calmly.
She also loves to look around and is frequently seen hanging from the glass lock in her enclosure and watching the coming and going in the house.
