Bredli or Diamond?
Hello everyone, my brother is interested in a Bredli or Diamond Python.
Just a bit about my brother:
He is a beginner, hold's my BHP yearling and my dad's Spotty. He has fed them both, cleaned them out etc etc but is still a complete beginner and would like to know about which one would better (as a hatchy) to "handle"
I have suggested a Bredli, is this the right choice or would you recommend something else?5 x Jungles, 2 x Spotted's, 2 x Bredli's and 1 x Central Beardie

both bredli and diamonds are good beginner snakes if ur looking for something bigger. from what ive read they are both fairly placid snakes. depends on which one he likes the look of better
if it were me id go for a hypo bredli

He has always loved the look of Diamonds, but has found the look of the bredli to be very interesting and has done some research on them. He is 16yrs, 17yrs in Aug but mature for his age.5 x Jungles, 2 x Spotted's, 2 x Bredli's and 1 x Central Beardie

Bredli might be a tenth easier to keep, so it really comes down to what he is going to be happier with.
I would say Bredli all the way, but that is a personal opinion, and I would not argue the point with the trolls.PURPLE FIREDRAKE WANTED

It goes without saying that he will get a second, third, etc

That sounds good, he is really interested in the Classic Bredli but has loved Diamonds all of his life.
Does anyone know the best site with the most correct information in it?
I know - Snake Ranch, Dolittle Farms, SXR etc. I know these are great sites with a lot of valuable information but interested to see what you guys think their temps should be at etc.(Bredli)

im pretty sure that bredli's are kept at normal temps like most pythons, 32 degrees at warm end and 26 degrees at cool endWish list-1 Hypo Bredli, 1 RSP, 4 Albino Darwins, 1 88% jungle jag and maybe (hopefully) one day a Paradox Albino. 1 Sand monitor, 1 Heath monitor, 1 Mangrove monitor, 1 Lace monitor and 1 Perentie.

I would say Bredli as a biased opinion haha, but as a first time snake I would say that Bredli are a fraction easier and a little more forgiving on the husbandry side of things, so are great for beginners as first snakes IMO...

Woma that has the unusual coloured head.
What are Bredli's temperaments like?
We got a Spotted as our first snake as people have said they are a part of the Children's Python family and are really quiet. But she can get moody and snap sometimes, she is still a great spotted. I know all snake's are different and they all have their moments, they are still wild creatures, I know that. My BHP that I got told not to get as they are for experienced people is the most placid snake and loves to be held, no cage aggression, eats like a horse and I think she is beautiful, being biased most likely, lol.5 x Jungles, 2 x Spotted's, 2 x Bredli's and 1 x Central Beardie

I started out with a diamond than a bredli. It really does come down to personal choice. My bredli is a snake ranch classic which im over the moon with and my diamond is from a member off this site which im not sure if he is still breeding them?. Both have great personality's and both are a pleasure to handle.
