    Default Neat KSB I Picked Up

    I stopped by my favorite pet store last week and just couldn't resist this little guy - my first Kenyan Sand Boa. Upon inspection he is a male and weighs 111.1 grams.

    In the shop I thought he was just an Anery because it was dim in there, but once I got him home I realized he is much more than that. He has zero black on him whatsoever, just two tones of chocolate. I've contacted a few KSB breeders and the general consensus is that he is actually a Ghost - Hypo Anery. How lucky is that??? There are VERY few of these in existence. I am not going to say he is definitely a Ghost until I can prove him out though, so I'm on the hunt for a female. Like I needed another breeding project!

    Here are a few pics of him, he is so friggin' cute.

    Thank you He is cute! I love his little dragon-face, lol. I've always wanted KSB's but never bought one, simply because the shipping was usually more than the snake. lol. This was the first time I've seen them local (other than at shows).
