That first snake was fiery!

I actually had the opportunity to interact with a breeding pair of these guys over the past few weeks. Definitely a unique experience!

Thinking of snakes Nova, how are the albino ball pythons?

I actually have sold them off. I am no longer breeding ball pythons, as there are plenty of obscure species that actually do need a hand population wise.

At the moment (amongst a few other animals) I am breeding legless lizards, yellow mantella frogs, and soon I will also have a mature pair of elongated tortoises.

I also added a 25 pound African Sulcata tortoise into my collection! I have my entire house climate controlled, so I let it roam around. One day it will hit 120 pounds, but that is the benefit of having property in the country!

I think you should post some images of some of those creatures.
