Last week, I was poking around Fauna Classifieds and came across an ad advertising a contest with snakes as the prize. For the fun of it, I checked out the site and entered, not really expecting anything. I rarely win things, but maybe that's because I never enter. :P

As you've probably guessed by now, I won. :shock: I still wasn't expecting much, since they said the prize snakes were their "surplus snakes". They arrived today, and I have to say... Holy crap. If these are "surplus snakes", what do their snakes for sale look like? These guys are awesome.

For anyone interested, they came from bigeasyreptiles.com

Check out the male's stomach in particular. I only recently got into Cali Kings, so I'm not sure, but is a black stomach on a white snake very common? I've only seen that once before.

Lucky you! Those guys are really good looking. Male/female - are they related?

Wow! Congratulations on your winnings... they look GREAT!! :D

I'm not absolutely sure about the "black belly" thing, but I can look at some of our younger ones when I get back to the shop.

Congrats! I love Cal Kings and they are fun to breed as well. The dark belly is rather common. Although, if you have one with a full stripe on the chin to the tail you can market it as such and get a little more $$$ from it.
