  • Before... and After. (DUW)

    My BRB, Samson shed last night... this time he actually did it in one piece. The last shed was complete, but came off in pieces. Anyway, I thought I'd share some before and after shots. The before pics were taken last Friday (Oct 23, 2009) during a spot cleaning of his cage.

    Before:








    And after.










    Samson's a burrower, and I hadn't realized it, but his snout was all dirty with mulch dust. As I was unraveling the shed the tip of the nose was all dark with dust. ...dirty little guy. But now he's all fresh and clean.

          I don't know. I kinda like the blue. But that green iridescence is awesome!

              Thanks guys.

              I've always preferred to snap photos right after a shed when it comes to any snake I've had, but while I had him out I was admiring how muted and blue he'd become, and thought a before and after series would be cool to get a real sense of how brilliant a fresh shed can be.

              BRBs get to be 5 - 6ft long. Males tend to be a little shorter than the females, but this is not a hard an fast rule. ...I've seen 6 foot males.

                Very nice! I love the differences of the BRB's in shed. My girl is crazy different. My girl is in shed right now.. I can actually tell when she starts getting dull about 2 weeks before she sheds.

                Great little girl! Good luck with her.
