Yo!, Brian Hubbs!

Post by DMong »

Here are the two "tiny" Outer Banks king hatchlings that were featured in your kingsnake book on page 260. Now they are all grown up, bred, and she laid a pile of 13 nice eggs last week. Hard to believe they only weighed 9 and 12 grams back then in the book photos..LOL!


cheers, ~Doug

Monk: They were captive produced...it is illegal to collect true sticticeps (where they all look like sticticeps within their small range) from the islands.

Yes, like Brian said, they are from captive-bred stock from Howie Sherman. They are a composit of Jim Kane, Bob Fengya, Carl Bartlett, Howie's, and Lloyd Lemke line animals from Dare and Hyde counties.

Well, yes, when that photo of him was taken, Howie Sherman and I both "thought" it to originally be a female when we popped it as a youngster, but come last year's breeding time, I said something ain't jiving here when I put them together..LOL!. I was putting additional weight on the wrong sex at that time,..LOL! and he has since slimmed up back to a great trim weight.

No wonder "she" was so much bigger, she was a huge over-fed MALE for chrissakes..LOL!

Thanks!

Yes, then he was too chunky 7 months ago, but he is now a perfect weight with no skin showing between his scales.

Perhaps it would be better suited on the Captive Bred forum then?

Since this is the "Yo Hubbs" thread:

Visited the Sternberg Museum today; they had your Rattlesnake and Common Kingsnakes books for sale.

Autographed copies were cheaper. Just kidding! :P

McMartinVille just needs some renovations...badly.

I ain't gone quite yet; still getting in a little last-minute herping. One lousy collared lizard today, about the "plainest" I've ever seen. Not "ugly," just "plain."
