    The joy of Radix

    We have aquired Pinjohn's Radix pair. Up til now I've been all about the checkereds... Not anymore. I have fallen in love with the female. Amazingly sweet natured! It's like she's always lived here. I am now a radixette.

    That's the lady Char was referring to. She's a hefty girl, I'll weigh and get some proper camera pics over the next few days. She's also got what looks like a bit of swelling immediately after her vent, she almost looks male... Hope she's not got an infection since John's been ill. Considering John had seen the pair locked either she's female or smells like a girl.

    Too big to be a male.

    Beautiful big radix.

    Thanks Steve. Couple more pics to come your way when I get a chance. Also need to pop up pics of the male - he's got lovely pattern and a bright yellow stripe. Good that they both ate as well after such a disturbing day.

    I knew as soon as I read what Char wrote that Steve would just love it! I can't wait to have a radix! So glad that John's snakes are in loving hands.

    Re: The joy of Radix

    Char has named her Adorabel (character in Terry Pratchett's "Going Postal"), she's a big girl, when I spoke to Steve earlier I hadn't weighed her and he guessed at 205g based on the photo. I've weighed her now and she's 260g. So not up there in The Enforcer's league, but a good healthy weight.

    From some other photos I sent to Steve he agrees that she looks like she has an infection below her vent, so trip to the vet tomorrow.

    Glad to see you are taking her to the vet to get that checked on. Good grief! I thought Cee Cee was a big girl at 170g! She's got nothin' on these radixes...I like me some big solid snakes!

    Re: The joy of Radix

    This is the male... Char has named him after Adorabel's love interest in Going Postal, so he's Moist Von Lipwig. We're going to call him Lipwig. He's a friendly, curious little guy, he's been out and about exploring his new home.
