Black mamba (Dendroaspis polylepis). One of the most interesting things I saw this species do was upon being released it "galloped" or repeatedly leapt through the air as it bolted away, we all had to steer clear out of its way which was a nice bit of fun. These snakes really don't fuck around when you piss them off, however just like all snakes they would rather avoid confrontation with people and have nothing to do with us.
Garden tree boas (Corallus hortulanus) are extremely adaptable and can be found in most South American countries, and a wide variety of habitats. As long as there is a tree to perch on, this snake will persist.

I've spent a lifetime giving my life away to the wrong people. I've been so sure of myself when in reality I was wrong. I've sacrificed a lot to make things work because I truly believed I found my golden ticket to true love. Two different relationships I was absolutely certain and ready to propose marriage to women who I knew to the core. Women who weren't deserving and less than what I deserved. I was young and blind. I've let past relationships and bad breakups steal opportunities from me. A lot of people settle for good enough then years down the road don't get why they're divorced and old. Many don't realize the Golden ticket when they have it. Don't get caught up on a mediocre bum. Love at any degree can make you blind and poor relationship choices means you're most likely dumb as well. Know your worth and go for the best. If you don't know what's best for you then aim for the stars. Equally yoked is a good start. Real kings could use real queens. Snakes and fakes are very deceiving so be careful. You'll know real when you see it. Like the Arken stone in the treasure room from The Desolation of Smaug movie. Same concept. True love should be the best thing in your life and at the same time the very thing that makes you feel like dying for. Dying for and not dying of. Two different things. If it makes you feel like dying then it's all wrong. I like how it's explained in Corinthians. Lost opportunity is hard to get back if not impossible at times. Just because it's exciting and makes you feel a certain type of way doesn't make it right. I know people who were great people with great potential and great dreams but compromised on love and lost their dreams, and all they worked for for so long. Had kids with a bum partner and now have wonderful children but live mediocre lives barely making ends meet and tolerate the person they thought was the Golden ticket but is truly a regret. Never compromise. Don't gamble on relationships. There are so many people in the world. Take enough time but not too much and be strategic. #knowledge#latenight#love#goldenticket#life#lessons#curb#fakes#snakes#bums#IG#divorce#poor#choices#blind
I posted a few videos on my Snapchat tonight because I did some late night cleaning. My boa had mites recently and I’ve started the treatment, but man, treating the room sucks!!! Tomorrow is treatment day because I’m just too tired, but my boa is going into shed now as I knew it would happen (mites can throw them into sheds more often than normal). Such a long process when you have multiple snakes, but at least I have enough spare tubs to do the treatment on everyone at one time! Woohoo! #stillunnamed#albinobullsnake#bullsnake#snake#snakes#snakesofinstagram#snakesofig
