Hi everyone! Just wanted to introduce the newest member of my household. Meet Rex. Rex is a two week old albino corn snake. We aren't sure yet if Rex is a male or a female, but we don't really care. We have been looking forward to bringing Rex home since he (we're going with male for now.) was hatched. We had to wait until he had eaten to make sure he was healthy, and apparently he is because he is already eating pinkies (baby mice).
I know snakes aren't every body's thing, but I love them and have wanted one since I was a kid. My dad is deathly afraid of them so it never happened. Well, except for once when I was in junior high school I found a snake and brought it home. I hid it in my closet for awhile, but then it disappeared and I have no idea what ever happened to it. I wasn't sure if the kid would want one, but he is totally into it. I even made him watch a snake eating mice just to make sure he could handle it, he thought it was very cool! Yeah! I'm so excited. I will be updating now and then so you can all see him grow, for those of you who care. :)
