    Hi everyone,

    Just got my 4th snake yesterday, a lovely diamond. Best of all, it was FREE!! But that means I'm going to need a mate to breed with and I'm not sure what sex this one is, although it's 'believed' to be male.

    Also pictured and keeping an eye on my reptile is my No. 1 pet, my border collie named Khan.

    To date I now have 3 bredli's and one diamond. 2 of the bredli's are around 3 1/2 years old and about 5 feet long and very friendly. The other is about 1 year old and not very friendly.

    I got it from a friend who is a licenced reptile rescuer. They can't all be returned to where they were found and consequently some have to be cared for.

    Apparently he can't sell rescued ones, but can pass them onto licenced keepers/carers if they don't have room for them. So that's how I got it for free.

    Thanks. She/he's been in captivity for a while for observation, but will be housed in a brand new outdoor enclosure I'm soon to finish, which will be placed pretty much where the photos were taken, with nice exposure to the morning sun.

    It's a bit shy at the moment, but hasn't struck or bitten, just very keen to explore the possibility of escape from my hands.

    I would be more worried about a captive bred snake than one rescued from the wild, in regards to disease.
