My aunt found this fellow in a field near a swap meet in North East Texas. She called and told me she had caught a ball python. :)
It had a couple injuries and was in shed. I had to help with the shed, especially around the scab on the nose. Its been about 3 weeks and it eats small rats without a hesitation and is active and friendly. I have no clue whether its cb or wc but its took right to its cage (soak in water bowl, hide in hide box, eat frozen/thaw)and is very calm when handled. Its got some beautiful yellow under the chin too.
Its got two more weeks in quarantine to stay healthy and mite free and then it can go in a nice cage in the snake room :)

To be honest...I'm glad its NOT a ball python. ;)
