Hi everyone! I hope you all are having a great weekend so far! Here’s some Carti to add to your feed, half of my babies are due to shed any day now (Shaki and Belle) and I can’t wait to post some more of them when they come back from zombie mode 🥰
My theory is that this 3 year old Orange Dream, 66% het Axanthic is indeed het Axanthic. She is not browned out, she is grayed out. First pic no flash, 2nd with flash but very little difference with lighting. I'll have to wait a season to test her. This year she has been with a YB Pastel GeneX Pied to test if she is het Pied as well.
The black mamba (Dendroaspis polylepis) is a venomous snake endemic to parts of sub-Saharan Africa. Skin colour varies from grey to dark brown. Juvenile black mambas tend to be lighter in color than adults and darken with age. It is the longest species of venomous snake indigenous to the African continent; mature specimens generally exceed 2 meters (6.6 ft) and commonly attain 3 meters (9.8 ft). Specimens of 4.3 to 4.5 meters (14.1 to 14.8 ft) have been reported.
The venom of the black mamba is extremely toxic, commonly causing collapse in humans within 45 minutes or less from a single bite. Without effective antivenom therapy, death typically occurs in 7–15 hours. The venom is chiefly composed of neurotoxins, specifically dendrotoxin.
Over suitable surfaces it is possibly the speediest species of snake, capable of at least 11 km/h (6.8 mph) over short distances.
Despite its reputation for being formidable and highly aggressive, it usually attempts to flee from humans unless threatened or cornered. Not being proximal to humans, bites from the black mamba are not frequent.

I was commissioned by @repz_king to draw their beautiful red eared slider, Chopsticks. I think I’ve found a love for illustrating animals recently, so this was another very enjoyable project.
Go check out @repz_king ‘s instagram, he has some amazing creatures there!
