My New Buddy

I would like to introduce everyone to my new pet, Boo:

He is an albino corn snake. He is about 5 years old and is about 4 feet in length right now. Since they rarely exceed 5 feet, he is nearly full grown.

Corn snakes are constrictors like pythons or boas, so watching him eat is very interesting. Though his head is quite small, he can (and does) eat full grown mice. He eats one mouse per week. We buy the mice frozen and then thaw one out for him every Saturday.

Boo is a very friendly snake, as you can see. He is crawling all over my friend John's head in this picture. He is very content to just hang out around your neck, so he will be a good snake to take to Ren Faires and the like.
