Rough scaled python pics
Decided to whip the camera out tonight and get a few pics of my little roughie. I find that pics never really do these guys justice though. This is definitely my favourite of the Morelia. The most inquisitive little snake I've come across, and it's hard to get past those huge eyes!
And here's some crappy pics I've gotten with the phone.
And in the feeding position

Yommy ...the lighter coloured one is incredible.
Actually I really dig the dark one too. Great looking critters you have there.
I love that first photo Bradchip, what camera are you using?
They are by far my favorite species.
Old photo, but here's one I took of one of my Roughies in the famous ball.
And some of my new ones, taken with iPhone.
Sorry for the tub being in the way in this photo, but it's the only way I can get a photo of her sitting like a GTP.
Same. S. Different. Day.

How do you guys find them to handle? I'm getting a couple feeding for a friend and these two are really docile (part of the reason they wont eat, is cause they won't strike) the rest of the clutch are just snappy little @"&$$! Do they settle down once they get a little older/bigger?
That is the most divine little creature you have there and your photography skills show him/her off to the max

Here's one I snapped at the Australian Reptile Park. They have a big-ish display with four or five animals on show.
Pic isn't the best, as it was through glass, but you can get the general gist.

The male i am pair with these two this season is a shade between the two so will be interesting to see what is produced.
There is some fair variance with this species with colour and pattern tones. One of the most under rated pythons in the hobby...HERPS - It's an obsession in the guise of a hobby

What fantastic photography - nice one.
Out of interest, does anyone know if most Roughies kept privately in Oz are closely related, i.e. descended from a handful of animals collected on a one-off trip, or if dealers are regularly collecting new blood? I'm assuming their collection is highly regulated.
The offspring from animals intercepted by customs here in Europe and passed to guys like Mark Mense are likely to be on the market in the UK in a year or two. I guess the species is reasonably safe from overcollection in the wild because of its remote location. Personally I wouldn't keep them (outside of Australia) as I wouldn't like to do anything that might encourage smugglers to feed demand, although I suppose one could argue that selling captive bred animals inhibits exploitation rather than encourages it.
