The tongue doesn't go in the glottis.

I'm an animator living in New York that also happens to love reptiles with all her heart. I love Dragon Quest, Pokemon, Monster Hunter and PURPLE THINGS??!

My career is animation, but my hobby is reptile keeping. If you have a question, I will answer it to the best of my ability! My knowledge is best on the species I've actually kept, but I know a bit about other species and I can point you in the right direction if I can't answer a question!

As always, feel free to call me out if you notice me making husbandry mistakes. I'm in this to teach about reptiles, but I want to learn about them, too!

And then this creep.  Wow.

I will flicket you while you sleep 9.85/10 SNAKBAG NO!!!!!!! Nope

Merp. How do you like having a scaleless snake? I was thinking about getting one.

They’re alright!  Hashbrown and Pancake are pretty flighty so they’re not great lap snakes, but they’re interesting, haha.

Holy poop, Hashbrown is a a lot bigger than I thought! @__@ How long is the bugger?

Hmm, I’m not sure! He sure has grown, that’s for sure!  Tx rats are one of the larger colubrids in the US, so he won’t be small!

Sad news.  Plinko is now nothing but a nose.  The rest of his body will be missed.

So will it be harder to take care of a nose or a full skink?

I think it’ll be easier taking care of a nose.  It sneezes a lot and digs around, but it is a good nose.

i feel my american-bred sense of entitlement the most when i get annoyed that the ‘united states’ is sorted in alphabetical order on a drop down menu and not just listed at the top

Hashbrown is such a cute name for a snake!

Thank you! :D He’s so stinky and rotten.

Asker Anonymous Asks:
Is Hashbrown supposed to be all wavy, like he's kinda crumpled up, or is he a rescue from some terrible condition? I don't know much about snakes but I have a fascination for them so I'm really just curious. PS he looks totally badass but at the same time adorable

lmao that’s just a thing rat snakes do, they crumple like that.. I’m not sure why but I think it’s hilariously adorable.  and THANK YOU! <3

Soooo… Hashbrown’s skin is really ashy and I’m not sure how to tell if a scaleless snake is dehydrated. so… uh.. ???? I wish I knew if this was normal or not.  I’m currently soaking him, but he’s in a PVC enclosure so humidity shouldn’t be an issue… I might start spraying him more often and see if it goes away..  It flakes off just like normal dry skin, haha.
