Simply Subocs' Herp Husbandry Product of the Decade

ABS Plastic Hide Boxes are back!
I thought I'd let you people in on a little well-kept secret. I thought these little pieces of heaven were gone a LONG time ago when Bush Herpetological Supply (Neodesha Plastics) went out of business.

Much to my delight, apparently ESU now makes them under the alias of the "Creature Cubbyhole".

These things are lightweight, stackable, storable, supereasy to clean, so indestructible that they'll still be around after the apocalypse, and they are hands-down the best hidebox for anyone with enough animals to make you sweat during cage cleaning time.

Oh yeah, and they come in 3 or 4 different sizes and are extremely affordable.

That Pet Place carries them under Reptiles: Ornaments: Hideaways.

Go get 'em! You can't afford to not pick these up.

Three Buns in the Oven

Got three good eggs from Celebwen (Elvish for Silver Maiden) today. Four out of the seven eggs were bad. She passed two bad eggs within 24 hours of laying the clutch beforehand; these were in random places in the cage.

Anyone else had this happen with their snakes?

Some PR for the Snow Suboc Project

Our post on about this year's possible snow suboc outcome got some extra publicity as a "Hot Topic" and is featured on the front page of KS under "On the Boards" as "Let it snow, let it snow".
Thanks to for recognizing a truly cool bit of news!

Step Two on How to Make Snow

So today I pulled out my triple het. female from one of the triple het. males' cage after being with him for about 5 days, and there were bite marks on her body!

That's a good sign with Trans-Pecos Rats. It almost always means that they bred.

So...if we get eggs out of her, then we'll have a good shot of making an unprecedented morph!
Three that haven't happened yet with the Loma Alta bloodline are the albino blonde, snow and snow blonde morphs. And the latter two haven't occured yet at all.

Keep your fingers crossed that it snows early this year!!!
