Skins and Things

I must say it is a real joy at times to be a mother to boys, especially when it means strange gifts. This Red Kneed Tarantula shed was given to d on Monday.

It has been preserved and mounted. It looks so real, people ask if it's a living spider. It has given us a real idea of how big Nipper will get.

These are what the boys brought back from Bristol. While there they went to a Reptile shop. They were given a snake shed each.
D had an African rock snake. The close up markings on the skin are fascinating.

J had a Jungle Carpet Python. This is a lot smaller than D's.

Wonder what other surprises these two will bring home.
