Something I did do over the winter period was acquire a snake. Jeremy, as he’s known, is a gorgeous corn snake. I picked him up on the 27th of December, so I’ve had him 4 weeks now. He shed this week, growing a bit larger and  the plan is to put him on larger feed in a few weeks.

We’re still getting used to each other (he’s currently hiding on my windowsill) but I like having him here – his scales on my skin is akin to having someone else here touching me – even if his touch is a bit cooler than most people’s.
