Tiger double het white anery reticulated python twins, produced by Aubrey Pruitt.

I didn’t know twin snakes could happen!I have so many questions. Are they always same sex or can they be opposite sex? Do they get all of the nutrients they need? Are they viable? Do they grow up to be regular snakes? Do they finish each other’s sentences??
This is very important.

In order:
Depends if they are identical twins or fraternal. Identical twins come from the same ovum and are identical, fraternal come from different ovum and are no similar than two siblings. But in this case they look to be identical.
Twins ((and even triplets)) come out of the eggs much smaller than their singleton siblings, usually sharing one yolk. So they are usually healthy, just small.
Yes, after hatching and with proper feeding they grow normally and are viable, unless there is a defect of some kind.
They always end their sentences with “Hmm” 


Fantastic.  Thank you, Brad!

Found this nasty fucker today #rattlesnake #snake

This is not a rattlesnake, dickwagon. This is a non-venomous colubrid. A gopher snake in fact.
Also, neat way to tell if a snake is a rattlesnake, do you see a fucking rattle? No? Then I have some news for you Chucklefucker.

Some new dragon stuff.  This is Snorlax, my nub-tail boy, and one of two pick-ups from Repticon Denver this past weekend.  The top picture is of Snorlax and Don Piano hanging out with me at the show (Snorlax being on the right, my left shoulder).
I feel pretty insensitive posting this the day after Trogdor died, but I am excited.  I don’t want anyone to think that I went out and immediately replaced him or anything like that.  The timeline went like this:
Sunday, went to Repticon, came home with three bearded dragons (mine, two house mates).  Already had Trogdor at home.  Four healthy dragons.
Sunday evening, Trogdor attacked by cat, taken to emergency vet.
Monday mid-day, Trogdor passes away.  Three dragons remaining.
So I guess I’ve spent a lot of time working on my new little guy yesterday and today to refocus my attention, and consequently I have new pictures to share.
I’m going to start grouting the foam thing today.  I might build a bit more, but this is going to take up almost the whole tank, so I’m not sure yet.

Please, please be careful with your pets.
My partner’s bearded dragon passed away today.  This was my fault and 100% preventable.  Trogdor was out while his enclosure was being cleaned.  He was in a small tub without a lid and I was supposed to watch him for a little while.  At one point, I had to lift a tank onto a table, so I set him down on a table nearby.  I got busy doing other things and completely forgot about him.
It was about 3-5 minutes before I remembered him again, but when I went back, he was gone.  A few minutes after that, we found him across the house.  My cat had found him, picked him up with her teeth, and carried him away.  He was only bleeding a little, but he had deep puncture wounds and was barely breathing.
We took him to an emergency vet.  They took this x-ray, gave him oxygen, and he perked up and started moving around, so we got to take him home with antibiotics and something for pain.  He really seemed like he would make it, and this morning he looked even better.  I left for jury duty.  When I got back, he had very recently died after throwing up.
I will not post pictures of his injuries, but I thought some of you might be interested in his x-ray - I always enjoy seeing stuff like this.  From what I understand, there is nothing visibly wrong in the x-ray, but if anyone with more practiced eyes sees something I would be really happy to hear about it.
but other than announcing his death, what I really wanted to say with this post is that accidents happen.  You might feel like you have everything under control, or that it might be okay to take a risk or do something that isn’t recommended with a pet because it has worked out for you before.  Do not take that chance.  It only takes one time, one mistake to kill your family member.  They depend on us.  It was an accident, but I’ve let a lot of people down, especially Trogdor, and it shouldn’t have happened.
Be kind to your pets, take care of them, and be careful.
