Posted in Boas, Pets, Reptiles, Snakes with tags , , , on 15 September 2013 by rainforestexotics

This remarkable sunglow boa is a special added collection. Down in California when we’re staying here, we’ve had such opportunities of meeting tons of snake enthusiasts 🙂

Today, we have purchased a one eyed sunglow boa… which my husband named ‘one eyed Willie’– fitting to his circumstance.


At first meeting. He is so docile…amazing temperament…perfect for school kids 🙂 Willie is a childs pet, i was just told.


Willie’s colour is definitely amazing 🙂


I love the high coral colouring on his tail, the high orange is a perfect contrast to his yellow body-


His scales are soft and tight…he’s a perfect eater, i was informed-


Here he is at home- enjoyn his new surrounding and new family 🙂

Sunglow boas are amazing snakes. Not only because they are pretty and give live births, but also because they are such cool snakes for kids 🙂

Until next time mates-

Hermann’s Tortoise named QB

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on 7 September 2013 by rainforestexotics

A tortoise is what my kids always asks for when we take a trip to the local pet stores-

Last week, we all took the kids to one of the bigger pet store in the east bay- there were plenty to look at and marveled at the size of full grown reptiles that were displayed. To say the least, my kids were paneled at the tortoise’s section. So my eldest daughter wanted a tortoise. She checked out their selections, from the russian tortoises to the sulcatas, to the greeks and finally chose hermann’s tortoise. She wanted something that doesn’t get too big- so we’re settled with the baby hermann’s tortoise-


My daughter was so eager to take his home and enjoy her tortoise. Her younger siblings encouraged her to name her lifetime pet. So my daughter decided on the name ‘QB’…


QB is only a baby, a good one month old hatchling. He is the biggest of his clutch and enjoys to eat, so his survival rate is higher than the rest. We went home with a care sheet and instructions. We had a long day that day, so wherever we went QB came with us-


Just in thst brief moment, people were attracted to him…how cute he is and a delight to see- as you can see, his photos speaks for itself.


He loves to eat and bask…soon enough he will enjoy the sunlight. For now, until he’s a few months older, we cannot play or hold QB…he must be fed regularly and soaked in water for thirty minutes daily. It is to make sure he is hydrated enough to avoid getting sick.


Just as you can see, QB is enjoying his time in his new environment-
