    Well, I Have One.

    A lovely little desert-phase California King, named Demetri. I was originally going to get myself a ball python, but when I saw my little stripey guy slithering about, I knew I had to have him. He was my 21st birthday present to myself. I love my scalebaby.

    Fluffy

    Fluffy is the cowardly Kingsnake - he is a California Kingsnake. He will not eat live mice because one bit him when he was young and he is afraid of them. He is such a picky eater that he will only eat one particular sort of mouse, too.
