Being retired we are busier than ever before, doing eBay and writing names or messages on rice grains, putting them in a glass vial to make jewelry at many craft shows.

OTHER ANIMALS at the FLORIDA STATE FAIR 2010
And then next to us a was huge display of the largest ALLIGATOR (Big Al), PIG, HORSE, STEER and PYTHON and the SMALLEST HORSE.
I really dislike snakes but this python really fascinated me. It was so big and long.
The head is pretty close to the front glass, but what is really interesting is the circumference of the body. It had been awhile since it had eaten so that is just it's normal size. One day the sun was shining on the skin and the dark, dark spots were a beautiful navy blue. The "handler" told me it was probably just the oil on the skin that was making it look like that. (No, he really didn't handle it!)
The thermometer is kept in there to keep the glass cage around 115 degrees.
