Biting my nails...
When the party is over for other colubrid breeders, the "freaks" (suboc breeders) come out to claim their spoils.
Trans-Pecos hatchings usually coincide with the time of the harvest in North America, when leaves are falling and when people are making jack-o-lanterns and pumpkin pies, all of which bode of a winter soon-to-come; allowing snake enthusiasts one last "fling" to enjoy their very own brand of harvest just before the long days of hibernation are here.

A typical morning in the Suboc Room...
usually starts with this guy out basking atop his rocky ledge under a daylight bulb for about half an hour with the window open. He's a nearly two year old golden-orange or Oro del Rio (River Gold) phase from Panther Canyon/Closed Canyon parents.
Although most of my snakes are in rack units, I keep a few of them in aquaria so that I can enjoy little day-in-the-life-of-a-reptilian moments like these when I'm just walking by and want to glance in the snakeroom.

May our Heavenly Father Forever Bless His Memory
Today the world has suffered such a loss. God bless dear Steve and his wife and children. This is a such a great loss to the world. When I lived in Chile for a couple of years doing missionary work, Steve was just as famous there as he his here in the U.S.A., and he had a burning passion for life that no other will probably ever exude to such a great extent. My heart goes out to all who loved him, because I feel their deep sense of loss and pain. May our prayers and thoughts be turned towards Terri, Bindi and Bob.
