Thanks for the help!

We live in NW Oregon, so he'll only be able to be outside from mid-July through August. The rest of the time it is way too chilly and humid.

Thanks for the heads up on the hibiscus urine color thing, that would have freaked me out, and hibiscus (along with dandelion) are the two flowers it have easiest access to.
Are they able to eat any edible flowers that humans use, or are some unsafe? I am assuming that there are some that are not the best for them, and I do think I'll order some online until the weather allows for growing.

I have been just turning off his lights and letting him hit standard reptile room temps at night, which are generally about 70. He seems to wake up perky and makes it to his basking spot fine, so hopefully that is appropriate- what do nighttime temps range where you are?

Anyway, here he is. The MVB made colors impossible to capture, but it seems like the pattern is more important. He is quite black. The lighter areas are a nice buttercup yellow, with the tail being mostly a duller yellow. He has a couple of spikes around his tympanic membrane but nowhere else.
I have no idea what his age is or if he was cared for appropriately to allow growth, but he's approximately 6-6.5 inches SVL.

Thanks again! He is a pleasure, very calm with beautiful brown eyes.
