Let's start with Lauren's first snake, Ziggy...
Ziggy was an undeniably striking "candy corn" snake -- a corn snake with
a red-and-orange coloration like a piece of candy corn. Docile, amiable,
and well-petted, Lauren liked Ziggy so much that she bought her a "boyfriend,"
whom she named Pigpen...
Unfortunately, Pigpen evidently had a respiratory infection when Lauren
bought him, because he and Ziggy both died soon after that.
More recently, Lauren came home with a new snake, tentatively called Nubbikins.
Lauren's cat Ju-Ju Voodoo was greatly intrigued by the live mouse, and was
clearly much more interested in pouncing on it than Nubbikins, who merely
lurked on her "rock" under the heat lamp. Of course, Ju-Ju was eating
for six at that point -- note her plumpness as seen in the final photo. (This
was in fact the evening before her kittens were born.)
Here Nubby, at a mere two months
old, demonstrates her propensity to crawl into Lauren's shirt and try to
nestle in her bra. (I think this is an excellent habit for a baby python
to get into and that it should be very amusing indeed if Nubby continues
to try to crawl into Lauren's shirt when she's eight feet long...)
And here we have an excited witness to Nubby's first meal after Lauren brought her home:
And here's Pumpkinhead:
