During summer you should be providing heat for about 14hrs during the day (say 6am-8pm) and then you can lower this amount during winter to say...
@Flaviemys purvisi help us turtle man
Or smart? Why breed 30 200$ snakes when u can breed 30 2000$ snakes
What do u think about the blue tongue in op? Think it’s gonna end up in...
Today marks day 30/60!
How many snakes have you handled to come to that conclusion :O
A stressed snake would rather hide in a nice tight hole than being fiddled about with
Is this the brand everyone uses for their tub setups?
Taronga zoo had a captive cane toad, lived for 33 years with them (was already an adult before)
A week before handling , don’t handle for 3-4 days after feeding
Wondering if u have pics of “tank setup”
A baby stimmsons should not be in a...
You would want a small tub 5L reject shop tub (quadrant brand)
With a heat mat underneat tub 1 3rd, and 2 toilet paper rolls as hides, one on hot...
Well... how old is it?
Heat mat would be a much better option under a 3rd of the smaller enclosure, with the ceramic heater you aren’t giving the snake a proper heat...
Far too late to seperate haha
They’re stuck like cement.. and I wish I was joking
noticed this on one of the eggs
do I just leave it? It’s nice and plump and veiny inside
This sped up global warming sure looks weird (looks at the 20-24°c summer temps over next 2 weeks)
Great news! Loving the rain!
I just used tape wrapped around dowel a few times on OUTSIDE of tub both ends
Used a soldering iron :) they work great for holes in plastic and...
Dowel from Bunnings!
Nice and simple setup
U just need a way to stop the dowel from sliding in and out!
Make the album not private
I just use pvc caps or cat litter trays :p
I’m looking forward to seeing all of these in his new book!
Particularly the patternless bredli!
What ones have you not heard of before?...
Awesome! Hurry up and pick your favourite!
You will never be allowed to, unless you own a zoo, then maybe.
I have to admit I’m a morph/rare kind of person
But there definitely are some locales I want to get my hands on
Such as the Mt isa/dajarra...
I thought I was gonna bleed out :( I was scared, as she continued to munch on my finger
(Not gonna lie it surprisingly hurt for such a little...
Be careful with that thing! They have a nasty bite
I guess the one big thing I did was worry a lot she wasn’t going to lay... but now when I look back it was SO obvious she was going to lay.....
I’ll try make a weekly update! :)
That’s awesome, maybe I’ll try that method aswell next year!
I was just using this method as I know it’s a...
Chucked a cover of clingwrap esque material to keep humidity up to 100% as I have gone for the egg crate method
A 4x2x2 would definitely be big enough :)
For a hatchling you want a plastic container, I use 9L jumbo tubs from reject shop and put dowel for them to climb, a water bowl, and a toilet...
If u want a black blue tongue just get a land mullet haha...
You want them to be as tight as possibl to feel secure e, for example all my snakes almost bulge out the side, which might be a little too tight...
Realistically you should have one on the top of heat mat and one on cold end
So do you use a sloppy medium mix?
Honestly I have no idea, I got friends who have been breeding for decades saying to set and forget, as long as humidity is 99+% and temps stable...
Ooh they’re nice!
Unfortunately I can’t tell if my humidity is fine, it’s 1:1 weight ratio Verm:water, I have slight condensation on the side about an inch or 2...
Thanks boss man, waiting for her to lay was just the beginning of the stress levels! Now I have to wait 60 days, build a rack, setup tubs etc
Day 3: eggs are going well
34 days after prelay I was worrying she was going to do a phantom on me
20good eggs ZERO SLUGS
Don’t ask about the laybox, she...
I just make sure there’s no cold spot and food is floppy
I’ve always tapped on their enclosure before feeding, and they always come darting out of their hides.. I find it does have some sort of an impact...
@Mick666 i know this threads a year old, but would u mind telling me what size tubs these are and how much vermiculite you use for them? I’m...
I know one of the best breeders in aus started when he was 14, and now 22 and his name is known all around!
U should definitely snag that up if it has black spots on it (and it’s not an injury or mites)
Could be a paradox albino
I’m hoping my bredli is gonna birth a xmas miracle!
9/10 can guarantee the guy got his kid out, and THEN attacked the snake
They’re good, I don’t really handle my snakes unless I need to do something like a paper change or notice something
Occasionally I’ll get them...
