Gorgeous girls slim, I love the contrast in colours.

Rainbow , you must know all your snakes well to be confident to pick up and remove all snakes ( i would be scared i might pick up a venonmous one) The little stimpson is a cutie pie!

I know the "regular visitors" to our property... and am aware of various snakes that frequent the area.
We have seen on our property lots of Whip Snakes (venomous but not deady), and we just shoo them on by stamping behid them... or the chooks get them, a couple of Gwardar/Brown Snakes... these have been just passing through and were on a mission that did not include stopping to look at us the way we stopped to look at them...

I always approach with caution. A snake is a snake, and potentially dangerous at all times.

Thanks! They actually change colour too- if they're cold, they darken to maximise heat absorbancy, and go the other way if they need to cool down. It's really cool to watch. Stumpy is always darker, though, and is very impressive after a moult, because she has this really pretty blotched pattern on her back that is accented with yellow.

Do you use heat mats or do you have a light :?:



I've got a light set up in a hood over the top of the terraium, which has a broad spectrum UV bulb for their UV requirements, and a heat fitting which I swap between a 100w bulb in spring/summer, and a 250w bulb for winter. I've got a heat mat, but it's really small and innefficent for the size of the tank (I had it under my frog's tank when I adopted a frog that we found on a banana).

The terrarium is glass, which is a down side because it lets alot of heat out. I've got a dual probe thermometer, and it reads on average 30 degrees under the 250 watt bulb during winter, but at the other end of the terrarium it reads between 10 and 20 degrees depending on the day (in other words- too cold!). Stumpy's gone into brumation, and Jemima's looking like going the same way, which isn't really a problem- it's what they'd do in the wild, but never having kept beardies before, I'm never really sure what is too cold.

Oh man, he is so placid and sweet, my kids love him. :D
I worked with kids for years and took him to work with me when he was a baby no bigger than a pencil. He was soooooo cute. Still is.

Try putting cardboard or newspaper (or something similar) on a section of the tank to reduce heat loss. Also gives the reptiles some privacy from busy bees.

They're alright now, it's warmed up enough that my bulbs can handle the heating needs. I have scrounged a heap of styrofoam boxes that I'll cut up and line the side against the wall to give them some insulation.

They've also come out of brumation and are running about like crazy beardies are supposed to!
