Hi! I've done something funny, something impulsive I would say but still ... I got a new snake! Hahaha

The breeder I know told me that he had offspring available now and that if I wanted one he could give me a discount (advantages of having breeder friends) so here it is, my new specimen of pituophis deppei
This individual has a shi... that is, a terrible character, although it is to be expected, the young always defend themselves more fiercely than the adults
Anyway, now I am keeping her in a plastic box, it is enough for her although I plan to buy a great tank for when she is bigger
Btw, I haven't named it yet, so if anyone has a suggestion I'll listen to it, or rather read it with pleasure

Captive bred, albino gopher snakes [genus Pituophis], freshly hatched and looking sort of like a pile of chicken carbonara. Image source here.

so unexpectedly, the albino ball python’s owner wanted him back. I know how I’d feel, so I gave him back. I asked him to please consider me again if he ever couldn’t keep him, so I expect I’ll never see him again. then I went online and grief-shopped this adult northern pine snake. net result of snake = zero. second pituophis owned. this guy sounds like someone put a hole in a bouncy castle though. he’s wet in this picture because he liberally and enthusiastically shit in his travelling bin so I had to shower him off.

In case you’ve ever wondered what zoos do for reptile conservation, the Audubon Zoo in New Orleans has a fantastic breeding project going on. A large chunk of their reptile house is dedicated to the Louisiana pine snake. These cages are simple, and they all have two snakes in them right now- because it’s breeding season. See, the Louisiana pine snake is one of the rarest snakes in North America. It is extremely threatened by habitat loss and development, and so it has a Species Survival Plan in place to help protect it as a species.

See those enclosures? Each of those is a temporary home for a snake not on exhibit. Each of those represents a healthy adult who could potentially breed. Each of those cages houses precious genetic information. The captive population of Louisiana pine snakes is low- it started with less than 100 individuals- and only four zoos have gotten them to successfully breed, the Audubon Zoo being one of them. Females only lay three to five eggs per year, and so every potential baby snake is important. If you look at the first picture up top, you’ll see some of the things the zoo records about each snake. They note where the snake came from, how they were hatched, how old they are, and the locality. This helps ensure that the gene pool is as diverse as possible. 
But this isn’t just ex situ conservation! Several hatchlings are released each year into a protected habitat. The zoos’ collective goal is to establish a self-sustaining population in a restored habitat where the species has been long extirpated. Eventually, the pine forests of Louisiana might see this beautiful snake slithering around- which wouldn’t be possible if it weren’t for captive breeding efforts!

Our light patterned Florida Pine Snake (Pituophis melanoleucus mutigus). Like all Pine Snakes, these guys have quite the set of pipes and are LOUD TALKERS! 😂 The sound of their hiss rivals that of our biggest constrictors. Ours is a wonderful educational animal once he's out, however, and he is a fascinating addition to the Biofauna Family!
