Hi thomassssss, Most female gtps will go though some form of a hormonal colour shift.
Some will even keep the colours instead of going back to there original colour.
Also the more clutches a female has the more she will change etc.
All types of gtps have some form of a hormonal colour shift.
thats really cool , i didn't know they did that and such a shift in colour not just some minor flecks , this is why i kinda like the fact that i have to wait a few years for one in nsw , that way ive got plenty of time to learn more about them getting that book the complete chondro soon i gather that would have more about this sort of stuff in it ?
This is a female of mine that actually turned blue from coluor change before being introduced to a male. According to the experts that's still hormonal. Its her hormones preparing for breeding. Something i wasn't aware of. They are truly amazing animals and we all have so much to learn from them.
Fantastic blue colouration Willo, what's her background - is she an Aussie or other line animal?

cheers willo , i have seen pics of blue gtps on google but wasn't sure if they were photoshoped or some random overseas morph i never really looked into it , cant wait until i can get my own , i think im just going to forget about getting anymore snakes until i can get one of these , im also interested in if its a native or one of the others ? (sorry dont really know all their names yet)
No probs mate, No its not an aussie, Good to see you doing your research before getting your first GTP.
Setup in the proper conditions with an understanding of them and there not a difficult species to keep.
Greg Maxwell's book is an excellent read mate you'll love it.
is that book the complete chondro , if so thats the one im planning on getting , sorta forced to do research on them as im in nsw and cant get on until im on a c2 , so plenty of time to learn more about them, there such awesome snakes , what type is it if you dont mind me asking , cheers thomas

Show me another snake species that undergoes such incredible tricolor process. In 3 years (or so) they go from yellow/red hatchlings to bright green sub-adults and then you can have a blue female after a clutch or two. Can't beat the GTPs!
Wow, love watching this thread. Looks like I will have to get my mits on a native or two this season!
