This seems to be my motto all week. Came home from vacation to find my only blue male rat dead. The reason: turns out I had a double rex male who finally started molting. We also didn't get a single spider from our spider male (banner photo) that we sold months ago. Instead there are some gorgeous morphs in that clutch of Kelly's that we may get and... a black pastel ringer! Finally, not snake related, I didn't get a job right away up here because Home Depot was waiting for me. I'm already headed to bigger and better things. So everything has it's reason, even though you may not know it yet.
PS- I noticed the font was too small, so I went bigger! :)
Well our setup is definitely not working for us. The change in weather from Phoenix to Flagstaff and not having more heat has caused alot of our balls to refuse. Kelly said they think it's winter and they're fasting. I wouldn't doubt it! So some of our females might get sent to her so they can grow. January we may have to find a new apartment with a separate bedroom for these guys. We need some AP racks in this place! On the other hand, our rats are thriving... go figure.
Oh! We are seriously considering getting a blood python. Bloodpython.com's Sumatran black bloods are really enticing us ;) So we'll see how that goes. They don't need as much heat as balls so our setup now is perfect. We may even get into breeding them someday, who knows. Stay tuned for some pictures if we get one
