Thanks! I think you might have nailed it, from some of the pix and descriptions I've found. This one especially fits our new baby:

http://www.explorer-club.org/expeditions/17Rosy%20Boa.htm

She (?) has been real busy rearranging the sand in her new home. It's getting heaped up 3-4" deep in the middle of the warmer side, with her hide box atop it, while the cooler end has been excavated to 1-1/".

It's nice to get a freebie for a change! The boy and I have four other snakes, three leopard geckos, and a giant black millipede. This rosy's food is all Tony's responsibility. My pet food budget is maxed out at about $50/month.

:Well, if it was found in Denver, it's obviously somebody's escapee. It looks to me like a Desert Rosy (L.t. gracia)from the picture.

::Found at my son's middle school - under a snow-covered rock! :-( Science teacher took it in but we talked her out of it. Eating well, shed once, seems perfectly fine after the ordeal. Wondering what subspecies it is.
