  • the mystery of the electric orange albino

    so many people have been getting new boas lately that i thought i'd join the club.

    w/o further adieu....

    1.0 motley het albino


    and an unrelated 0.1 albino (you should see this girl in person. the flash washed out about 90% of her orange)


    now here's the (rather lengthy but good) story behind these two...

    so steve-o and i were makin' the rounds at tinley this past month, and i came across this fantastic lookin' girl... (the pic quality isn't that great, but it highlights her orange more than the last one did)



    i was stunned, but i wasn't in the market for a female or an albino. so i just admired for a while, talked to the guy who produced her for a bit, and continued on. well, i stopped by the table a couple more times just to admire. the guy saw me looking at these, too:



    "wanna take one home?"

    i jokingly told him, "only if you'll let me do it for $400, 'cause that's all i've got!"

    well he laughed and said no. no big surprise

    i never did get the name of his company - a mistake i would soon begin kicking myself over...

    well i ended up getting my 1.0 PK poss super salmon jungle and was happy. but i kept thinking back, "man, i should have gotten that albino! she was GORGEOUS!"

    i began trying to track down the guy. i asked steve and the other RTBers who were there if they remembered, and none did. so i emailed the guy who ran the show, and he wasn't sure who it was, either. i got a floor-plan and vendor list from him to see if i could piece it together, because i knew approximately where his table was.

    no luck.

    so i gave up hope of ever solving the mystery...

    several weeks later i was scanning KS for a motley het albino to pair with the fem poss het albino i got from steve-o. i came across two nice looking males for sale and contacted the guy. his name was kraig, and his company was 'living canvas exotics.' we began talking about prices.

    after a couple of emails, i thought to myself, "man, that company sounds familiar."

    then i took a little closer look at the KS add, and had a fleeting thought that they looked ALOT like the two motley het albinos in the picture i took at tinley at the same table as the orange albino. so i examined them closer, and decided they looked nearly identical!

    i started to get REALLY excited, so i emailed kraig the pics i took at tinley and asked him if they - by chance - were his.

    he said YES! and i was so excited i about crapped my pants!

    i ended up calling him and asked him if he still - by chance - had that "gorgeous orange albino."

    he said YES again!!! and i nearly crapped myself again!

    we started talking about a package deal for the two and eventually worked something out.

    i put a down payment on the pair later that day and have been PUMPED ever since

    i will hopefully acquire them late february or early march!

                        Awesome dood! lol I remember when you put down the payment, you were just bursting to tell Steve (I think) in the chatroom but had to settle with me. I just knew you had gotten a 'bino after posting at least three times that week that you wanted one, but the Motley was a surprise. Congrats again on the gorgeous pick ups (your 'bino may be prettier than mine, but mines older and I had one first so there!) and good luck with those classified breeding projects.

                        Mat.
