All my snakes use their humid hides. Just a call me the master humid hide maker! Shadow found his this morning.



I'm also becoming the master indigo poop cleaner, lol.

Eat more, poop more, and smellier poop. But I knew that going into it

Today was a very short (2 to 3 minutes) but positive first handling session. I say first, but of course I've handled Shadow for purposes of cleaning and feeding. This was the first time I just picked him up and held him for that purpose alone. My impression is that he is a little more confident and calmer than my baby corn snakes were at this age, but he's still definitely a baby snake!

I understand. I takes a while to be able to identify different species.

I can assure you the inside of his mouth is a lovely pink, whereas the black mamba mouth is black. Black mambas are actually more gray than black.

Eastern indigo snakes are a lovely glossy black as adults. Some have a red to mahogany color on their face and chin. This is frequently bred for and is very fashionable right now. Shadow still has white baby speckles, though his chin and throat should retain the hint of white he has there now.

Edited to add:

Here is a picture of Shadow's sire. I'm sorry it doesn't show his face, but you can see what a beautiful snake he is. It was taken at Reptilefest (in a display, not his normal housing) and Shadow's dam had just laid her eggs days before in early April. I've held his sire twice and his dam once. Both are beautiful, with the sire being larger, longer and more muscular as is typical of this species.
