Blue Tongue Skink
Based in Middletown, California
Handsome Boy was part of the first clutch of snakes I ever hatched, backed in 2007. Though we were apart for a decade, while he was in the care of other capable keepers, I had the chance to welcome HB back into my care in 2018, where has been ever since. He's a truly magnificent animal - currently the oldest living puffing snake in captivity, and the largest, at ~11ft long and over 10lbs in weight!
