Opalescent by pitbulllady Opalescent by pitbulllady
In honor of St. Patrick's Day, I present a lovely serpent, my female White-Lipped Python(Leiopython d'albertis), which I recently acquired at a reptile show. She is a doll baby, in contrast to most White-Lips, which tend to be "nippy"(code: will try to bite your face off). Her colors are real, one of the great things about this species.
These are NOT beginner snakes, as they have very particular temperature and humidity(especially the latter)requirements. Most are wild-caught in New Guinea, and will only eat live prey. Fortunately, this one slams frozen/thawed rat pups.
Her skin feels like the finest, softest Chamois cloth.

It almost reminds me of a Brazilian rainbow boa... but they are both very beautiful.

Wow, gorgeous iridescence. :D I own a snake myself, a Rosy Boa named Rosie that I've had since I was 8 years old. :heart: I wish more people like you and I loved and appreciated reptiles!

P.S. ARGH these ads on Deviantart are annoying me. D: It sounded like two of them were playing at once.... ;_; :cries:
