Cute little guy!
And I learned something from this thread. I noticed your guy has a black tongue; I had really only noticed our good old garter snake tongues, which are bicolored. So that drove me to the internet:
Various snake species have different colored tongues. Some species have dark colored tongues, while others are bright red, blue or cream. In some species -- garter snakes (Thamnophis sirtalis ssp.) provide an excellent example -- the tongue is often red at the base, while the tips are black. Individual variation exists in some species as well, with different specimens exhibiting differently colored tongues. Amelanistic or albino animals often have very light colored tongues.”
Not only that, but that there are actually people who ask questions about their snake’s tongue color and the health of said snake,
because if their snake’s tongue changes color, it can indicate "mouth rot”....
Inquiring minds find out things they don’t want to know.....
