    I'm so excited that I just had to share the news with people who understand the feeling... after some gentle persuasion I managed to convince my wonderfully patient awesome husband to let me get another snake. We pick her up tomorrow afternoon. I'm so excited I doubt I'll get much sleep tonight. I'll post pictures once she is settled in. :D ......now I need to think of a name for her.....any suggestions?

    When I get another snake.
    I don't ask for permission!
    But I expect forgiveness!
    So far all I've got is grudging acceptance!

    My partner doesn't get a choice if I get more haha. The deal is I won't complain about how much money he puts into his car and he (very grudgingly) helps me fund my increasing reptile collection.

    I think it works out well :D

    My breeder here is selling her for 190 which is pretty good, shes a yearling. I could have gotten a coastal for 60 but I love bredli's.

    thomasssss - When I used to live in outback nsw (40+ degree heat) we kept animals in our shed and we had a setup that had cool water cycle through pipes over the roof (sort of like a solar hot water setup for a pool) which made it tons cooler in the shed then outside.

    Well she is here. She is stunning but a little jittery and snappy, I only got 1 photo when I was transferring her from her bag.
    View attachment 260973 It isn't a very good photo and she looks bigger and prettier in real life but she tagged the phone so I wasn't going to take anymore, lol.

    I decided to call her Valkyrie.
