Angry Baby Lucy

Description

This is my new Leucistic Texas ratsnake, shipped fresh from BHB reptiles. He's a real firery little thing! I'm sure he will tame down eventually, but right now he's convinced that everything is out to eat him, especially my camera!

Lucy the ratsnake exhibits what is called leucism, which is a condition characterized by reduced pigmentation in animals and humans. Unlike albinism, it is caused by a reduction in all types of skin pigment, not just melanin. Which is how you end up with an all white snake and cute little blue eyes!

And yes, I am the most creative name-giver of all time. But I wanted a Beatles theme here. :P


Edit:
I first want to thank everyone for all the love they've given this picture. It means a whole lot. Sadly, little baby Lucy died of unknown causes. It was a very tragic night, and she will be missed.

Edit2:

I hate to slap a huge watermark on this pic, but sadly the one I had in the corner has been edited out numerous times and this photo has been stolen more times than I can count. I don't mind the memes. I think they're cute, and honestly I find it flattering to see Lucy on so many places around the internet. But when I see that other folks are stealing the artwork to sell for their own profit... well that kinda ruins it for me. So, I do apologize, but I'm adding the big 'ol unsightly watermark to this photo from now on.  :(
