Something odd seems to have happened in the Bedford area recently - no-one wants their royal pythons any more. Or other snakes for that matter. In the last month we've taken in three royal pythons, and last night, a baja ratsnake who was found under someone's car.

This is the royal who came to us on Monday





And this is the ratsnake who turned up last night. They'll all be going to the vet this week for probing and, in this guy's case, a checkover to sort out his slight mouth injury and scratches

Since posting those piccies we've had a better look and a chat with a couple of people and we're now 90% sure that we screwed up on the ID for the 'ratsnake'. S/he bears all the hallmarks of being an average sized Colombian rainbow boa!

Same here - but Bajas do have a wider head than most ratsnakes, and until someone sent us a piccie of a CRB the baja was our best guess!
