i have a small baby snake, about 30-40cm long. it looks just like a Darwin Carpet/Coastal Carpet but it has a Pink belly.
any ideas what it could be? it was sold as a female Darwin carpet python but i had a look today and it's actually a Male. so i'm starting to question whether or not it's a Darwin Carpet.
Can you post up a pic?"We do not write so that we can be understood - we should write so that it is impossible to be misunderstood."

can tell by the tale on it
looking at the tail method is only 50% correct, you need to get it probed.

So because it MAY have been probed incorrectly, the breeder got confused by what snakes they put together this season? >.> A pink belly doesn't really mean squat.

oh thanks. the video of the snake is nearly finished uploading so i'll show yous. but yer with the tail if the skinny part is short means its a girl because more fat body for reproductive system. just my 2 cents

My little Darwin was the same. When he was a hatchie he was pink and orange. He was also an odd shape, he was elliptical rather than round. But as he's getting bigger he's losing his baby colours and becoming more snake-shaped

I didn't realise purchasing abilities indicated knowledge. I must be smart!
