Back in late 2008, I received a male eastern indigo as a donation to use as an educational animal from Matthew Rand. Thus began my journey raising what has easily became my favorite snake of all time. It's hard to express how much I enjoy interacting with this snake, not to mention how many people he has helped get over their ophidiophobia. He is a permanent resident in my classroom during the school year and invariably, when terrified students walk into my room in August, by October they are interacting with him like they're best friends. I was extremely fortunate a month or so ago to be able to pick up a little 2010 female to start raising as a hopeful future mate, and she is already displaying some of the personality traits I enjoy so much about him.

Anyway, enough talk. Here are the pictures.

This is him back in February of 2009





And today, enjoying a little bit of sunshine









I would say I wish I lived where these things can be seen wild, but then I wouldn't have the pleasure of keeping them!
