Just wanted to make an update on the male alterna I caught May 16th, 1984. He is still going strong after 29 years living in Kansas. Must be clean living! LOL. I found him on Pandale dirt about 3 miles north of the railroad track @ Langtry. He's approximately 40 inches long. He has had a growth of some sort about 6" above the vent. Don't know if this will eventually be his demise or not but he's had it now for over 2 years. I feed him "hopper" size mice so he can digest/pass them easier because of that growth. I've kept him on newspaper with a hidebox and cool him down to 60 degrees every winter. Nothing earth shattering about the way I keep him. Just lucky I guess. I also have a captive born male from 88 and a cb female from 89 (both Juno's) that are still going strong as well. Also still have a male celanops I caught in May of 88 on River Road and a captive born Bairds rat from 85. Just thought I'd share these longevity snakes with you guys. BA
