Finally!!!...a Suboc.com update!
So finally...we are very close to getting this thing up...this time it's the real deal. My goal is to have the homepage and what I call the "Paint Jobs" pages up by this weekend. Hopefully that goal is realistic enough??
We will have a few announcements concerning all of the researched pages like "Captive History", "Myths/Facts", "Captive Care", "Morph History" etc...but we'll have to wait before we divulge those...but really soon.
So...keep your fingers crossed, and we should all be finally seeing a subocs-only web site by the end of the week!

On Sunday (Feb. 19th) in the snake room , I removed the curtains (actually a dark blanket), closed the windowpane, opened the heater vents, and yesterday and today I have started to turn on the supplemental subenclosure heat for the females.
A few of the blokes are still asleep, but that is expected. However, this little girl was one of the first to start moving around, and she is looking even more beautiful than when she conked out on Dec. 22nd.
We're hoping for a good year, and it is exciting to start seeing some "old faces" after a couple months of winter slumber!

Dowling and Price, the two people who, in 1988, proposed that subocularis and rosaliae be given their own genus of Bogertophis instead of Elaphe, proposed also that the Bogertophis animals were more closely related to "Pits" than to other "rat snakes". After seeing these animals, I am a believer.
Another amazing photo by Michael Price.
