Corn Snake Gallery

Here are a bunch of pictures of our Corn Snake (Pantherophis guttatus guttatus) that we have had since early 2002.

We adopted the corn snake (we call him* Little Head – yeah, I know, we’re not that creative) from a local reptile zoo / reptile rescue called Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo through a friend of ours who used to work at Little Ray’s. Our corn snake was part of a clutch that hatched in the zoo from a rescued female that turned out to be gravid (had eggs).

Now almost 6 feet long, it’s hard to remember when the snake would cling around your wrist like a little bracelet.

So, enjoy!

* Yeah so we never had the snake sexed so we don’t know if it’s a male or female. We used to think it was a female because of the way the tail tapered but it’s never produced eggs. Now we just refer to it as him or her interchangeably. Usually it’s just “the snake”.

Audiovox 8910, BitPim, OS X and downloading pictures

Well, I finally got my USB data cable for my Audiovox 8910 cellphone. I had ordered it a while back through eBay. $10USD shipped. That’s a lot better than the $99.99CAD+tax that the Bell Store wanted for it.

Anyhoo, of course what’s the first thing I want to do? DOWNLOAD PICTURES! hehe. What else?

I tried at first to just connect it to my iBook but that didn’t seem to get me anywhere. I managed to find the BitPim application that has executables for Windows, Linux and OS X! I did get a little worried though when I saw they don’t support the Audiovox 8910. Oh No!

Now I had problems getting it to work on the iBook. I gave up and went to the XP box and had even more trouble. Finally I managed to find MAU108’s (& blu3ad3pt1’s) site which had a link to a newer version of the Curitel drivers. Once I started using those on the XP box everything started to work!

I got curious then and went back to the iBook. For some reason now it just worked. I’m not sure if this is because I was originally doing everything wrong or if it had something to do with getting it to work on the WinXP box. I had installed some ProlificUSBtoSerial driver I found on thephonemall.net and that might have been what allowed it all to work. I’m not sure because I deleted that driver and it still works. Maybe there’s something left over on the iBook from that driver install.

Anyhoo,it’s all good now! I can download all the stupid pictures I take with my camera phone now.

Corn Snake TV

Now you can watch Corn Snake TV! hehehe. This has to be the stupidest idea yet, but I want to be able to see my little corn snake while at work. I just discovered that the webcam software I’m using allows you to setup for motion detecting. Cool. I hope it works for capturing the snake motion because it’s pretty small in that huge terrarium.
