Just realized that another "anniversary" happenned earlier this week. On May 16th 1984 I was fortunate to find a small male medium phase blairs morph on Pandale dirt road. 3.2 miles north of the rr tracks. He was 14 - 15 inches long at the time. We just passed 28 years together. He is now a dark phase with a lot of black speckling in his blotches. Still a very aggresive feeder but has developed an internal lump about 4 inches above the vent. I feed him smaller mice now so he can pass them easier after digestion. Don't know how much longer he'll be around but never dreamed I would of had him this long. Based on his size at time of capture I feel he is probably a 1982 hatchling. Don't know if this is a record but its got to be in the top 5. I also have 2 captive borns from 88 and 89 respectively. Just thought some guys might be interested. Good luck to everyone who puts their time in this summer in good ole west texas. I miss it dearly. Brad Anderson
