Hey, thanks for the replies & comments about my last posting. We all appreciate sincere praise when it’s earned, and it’s been awhile since I’ve had any kudos. It’s fun to share my hobby with you online folks – even if I don’t get to see your faces. I’ve rarely met friends or partners who shared an interest in reptiles, and landlords have often been highly critical or even intolerant.
My family & current housemate are tolerant of my reptile companions, and even appreciate them at times. My mom in particular has come a long way. I’ll never forget catching her in my room one day after school, talking to my pet anole and caressing the glass next to him. She had a strong bias initially, and opposed letting me keep a lizard in the house.
My digital camera is a basic model, and I have not yet mastered technique of eliminating glare from glass, even when I don’t use flash, so forgive me for poor quality. I will see what I can do as I have better opportunities to photograph my snake.
(Incidentally, I only kept the former Owner’s chosen name of “Buddy” as a nickname. I’m thinking of naming him Blaze. I’m still giddy over my first red snake.)
Please chime in with your Nelson’s stories & photos. Bonus points for anyone who has seen one in the wild, or recently visited their native regions of Jalisco or Michoacán.
(Cold snap alert! We are now 26 degrees Fahrenheit, 20 degrees colder than normal. Snow is coming down fast, with 3-4 inches already, in a region where it rarely snows.)
