That picture you have put up actually shows that the monitor is not a Lace monitor
but looks much more like a gould's monitor.
And the size of it...
It's not a marsh snake, it is a golden crown. Marsh snakes head shape is different.
It's a golden crowned snake.
I would say it looks like a Green tree snake skin.
It sounds like you are asking these questions as you may think
you have a neighbour has a pet python and that you are quite
paranoid about them...
It's true that green tree snakes can usually be very fussy eaters but they are not venomous
and have no fangs, the brown tree snake is the one...
Most books say that they grow to 1.3 - 1.4m but mine range from 1.6 - 1.7m
and eat adult rats.
It only depends on what species the snake is.
It doesn't matter that it is an albino as this does not have to be mentioned
in the licencing paperwork
They may be fine this time of the year being winter but just be carefull to keep an
eye on them when it gets closer to Spring and the lizards may...
It starts Friday the 30th April till Sunday the 2nd of May
at Olympic Park, Sydney showground
I actually heard a different version of this story the other day,
The story was that a friend of his had a python and she worked at a...
Yes I did get a tape measure on that snake and it is actually 3.1m which
is just over 10ft.
Goes to show you how big a real 12ft snake would look...
It's a water python
I have found some diamonds at this time of the year when they are wanting to feed alot
before the cooler weather comes on will be very excited to...
I was called out to one of these not long ago also the man pointed it out to me in the bushes
with his wife inside the house claiming it struck at...
I would say the baby turtles are actually long necks not Kreffts.
Looks like they had a good variety there on the day.
Are you asking what type of snake is trying to be replicated here as it is fictional or
do you think this is a picture of a real snake?
It is a common wood white butterfly like this one
the regent skipper has similar colours but the markings are
in different spots.
The eye is big in comparison at the moment as the snake is a baby, it will
grow into it's eyes in time and look more proportional as it matures.
Sounds good to me, John and I will look forward to it.:)
No worries Jonno, let us know whenever your in Sydney and John would love to drink
your beer even if it means you pestering him till the carton is...
Hmmmm, I must have to go back to read the fine print or I could say it was wild
if I have to.
That is the same carpet as in my photos
Ok Jonno, Since you mentioned beer it got me keen to get the tape measure
out on this carpet today.
The first pic is a pic taken a couple of...
Yes, JasonL Rex doesn't play well with others:(
The problem is mainly that since licencing came to affect in NSW in 1996 there hasn't been
enough years actually recorded for longevity in these...
I will agree with you here Markars as I know a fellow which got a lacie hatchling from
me which he treated like a pet kitten rather than a lacie...
Yes Nick, this is exactly what I am talking about as I have quite a few large lace monitors
which are quite happy to have me hang out in their...
I have kept and bred lacies for many years now and have found that there is no hard
and fast rule that suits every individual lacey as personality...
This snake is pure darwin and incubated at normal length of time as did the siblings
that hatched out next to it but the siblings looked normal...
I'm very interested to see how this snake will look as it matures
and colours change with that patterning as it looks good now.
The unknown frog looks like it is just Limnodynastes peronii (striped marsh frog)
The pole is right up close to the camera & the trick is that
the head of the snake , the ground & the officers feet have been cut
out of the pic...
When can we book you in to talk at the AHS $nake Pimp I reckon it would be a great talk
as I enjoyed reading some of the paper you have done but I...
They look spectacular, definately not your average pattern.
G'day popeye, thanks for the good comments, the weight of that olive is about 8kg.
The bad eating habits started at about 2 years of age they...
Hey Mighty, I have kept bluey's outside for years as long as you give them good
shaded areas as well as access to drinking water and good sunlight...
Bluetongues are great being kept outside in the sutherland shire thay occur
naturally there, the only problem I think you would have with the...
Ok, here's one of mine.
I have a couple of olives which I have had for 11 years now and they are the most frustrating snakes to feed as they are...
They obviously didn't talk to snake experts that knew anything about snakes or the media were happier with the readers
thinking it could have...
Olive pythons will grow quite quickly if fed very regularly & it is not uncommon
for them to grow to 2m in 12 months if fed alot & kept heated all...
Haha, come on Jason you know I'm not really quiet in person, just
usually quiet behind a keyboard
That's a good idea Jase now you have something to eat your leftovers:lol:
Looks like an Eastern brown to me.
Male diamonds don't combat as badly as some other male pythons but it does
happen sometimes with diamonds.
I have a pair of males which are...
There is a few ways of treating them as there is the mite spray known as top of descent which is used in aircrafts for the control of such...
Yep that's big enough to not see a mite and be able to hide a few hundred undetected
in the scales.
Depending on the size of the bluey their scales are quite large & the mites will hide really well & usually only come out at night or when the...
Sounds like mites, as the white spots are usually the mite poo after
feeding on the host (this case the bluetongue)
