Yeah rub it in why don't you.
:eek::eek::eek: How dare you!!!
Well, I hope to see more in the future :)
Good luck man :).
Ah ha! So you're the one getting all the rain!
Welcome to Aussie Pythons & Snakes Fiona,
Great to have you here :)
OK thanks man :)
Thanks for your help guys. So is paradox a genetic trait?
So there is no way of intentionaly producing one?
As some of you know, I've been doing a bit of study into python genetics. During my research I came across the word, "Paradox". Could somebody...
About 500 people get hospitalized from venomous snake bites in Australia per year. But it wont get reported if it doesn't sound exciting.
That is a gorgeous snake. I am now a fan of the immaculate Children's and anyone who breeds them.
BTW interesting poll selection.
Good luck Flaviemys purvisi :)
Gorgeous Red-bellied black.
I'd have him on hopper rats at that age. He could be striking because he's ready to go up a food size.
I guess my luecistic BHP dream will have to wait. I need to get me one of these.
It seems our friend Diggit has gone and found the only vegetable laying snake on earth!
Crikey! Definitely bigger than any carpet I've seen!
I have heard of snakes being more aggressive in spring as they are hungry and looking for females. Actually, it has happened with my stimmie as...
That is a brilliant idea.
True, I always take a bunch of friends when I go herping. Just in case something goes wrong...
Pure coastal albinos! Sounds spicy!
After seeing this I'm definitely going to be more careful whenever I grab wild carpet pythons. I guess you never know what the reaction might be.
I'm doing pretty well. I got a job the other day which I'm super exited about. Also went herping and wrangled a 1.5 metre carpet python. Plus...
My experience and the experience of others I know :)
By the way my BHP has finaly calmed down after handling, like you said Paul, it's all about...
For the first 2 years of their life, most BHP's will be crazy. I just bought a pair of welding gloves for my BHP :D
Weird's the word for it. What is it then, a spotted?
Why would you even produce a super jag if you know that it's going to die or end up like that?!
Haha, that's exactly what's happening with my caramel carpet. He's getting brighter after every shed.
Well thanks guys, I just wanted to clear that up. I will definitely not be producing super jags, or any jags for that matter, I hate the jag gene.
Is the super form for the jag gene leucistic? Also, is it lethal?
Is she snaping or latching on when she bites?
Well, To be honest mine has been acting a little weird as wll but he seems to be getting better. How old is yours? Black headed pythons will often...
It is confusing, because they both reduce the amount of melanin. Only hypo's reduce melanin more then caramels don't they?
I never heard that they are the same. I've never seen them depicted as the same gene. If they are the same, then why is one called caramel and one...
Does that mean that the caramel gene isn't always a co-dominant trait?
Hypo and caramel are definitely not the same gene. The thing with co-doms is that there's always a super form. Take zebra's for example; there's...
I can't seem to find out wether or not the hypomelanistic gene is codominant. I know it has a super form, could that mean that it is...
Me when I read Sdaji's posts...
Occassionally I go frog herping just for fun. I mean, it's not that hard when you have several dams in your paddock.
Here are some of my...
Thats it. Diamond python is the next on my list.
Yeah, locale was the word I meant. Thanks Bluetongue1 :)
OK, thanks everyone. I got a lot more than I hoped for :)
Thank you Sdaji!
Wait a minute, aren't daimonds a subspecies?
What's the difference between subspecies and locality? Like, with the stimson python, is a wheatbelt stimson a locality of stimson or a stimson...
Thanks man. I think if the breeder said he's caramel then he probably is. I'm really happy with him now.
The funny thing is though, I share him...
QLD sucks right now.
Yes! pic upload success!
They'll be going in the gallery, be sure to leave a like, rating and comment.
Haha, I'll try to get around to that sometime soon. No promises :p
