Wow, Jerry!
That male is absolutely stunning! I've always liked piceus - in my opinion, they are nicer than even the reddest testaceus.
I once kept a male, black phase piceus and it was a heartbreaking day when he died. He was one of the most inquisitive, intelligent, and interesting snakes I have had the pleasure to keep.

Anyway, that's my piceus rant. I wish you the absolute best of luck with your charges, and I hope your female drops a clutch of healthy eggs!
