So who has seen the Hyundai Advert where the chick flicks the snake with her belt?? I have not been quick enough nor do i have a PVR so i have not yet been able to work out whether the snake is an Olive or a Diamond, Opinions please....... whatever it is it is a very interesting color. ( ͡° ͜ʖ...
currently planning a small snake rack with the threaded rod so I can adjust to different tubs but the main tubs I'll be using are 45L Starmaid tubs (730x440x235mm) and am planning on building 4-6 shelves. Will also be using smaller tubs for smaller snakes/Hatchies.
now to the questions...
So after talking to a local guy who is selling some of his collection (one of which is a mature Water Python) I have gained a interest in them.
Just wanting to know how they handle, if there is a difference between NT and QLD locales and when about do Hatchies pop up for sale?
Does anyone know who purchased the breeding pairs from Ken Worley? Due to work commitments I was not in a position to purchase one of the offspring when he was selling up. I would like to get one in the next 12 months and I like the idea that they are a line of smaller sized water python...
As the title suggests, I'm in the process of building a half land half water display enclosure. The water area would be an aquarium and hopefully I can keep some native fishes.
Just want to know if I keep a water python will it try and eat the fishes? What if I have a large adult and the only...
I came across some people selling "mix carpets" and at first I thought they were dodgy small scale but I was wrong; they have a huge following, YouTube channel etc... Only a few years ago I remember reading a devastating article about how a bunch of crossbreeds were seized and euthanised. Have...
Basically, I want an update. How collections are going, herps you are seeing and wish list stuff etc.
As for me, I've got a couple of updates. Red and Lizzie are going strong, snuggly and placid as usual. Red made his first public appearance when I showed off my new cage I'm working on at a...
The Photo Competition to get your photo featured in the 2016 Aussie Pythons and Snakes calendar is now open. It is a simple competition where you can upload up to 3 photos to our Gallery for consideration by a chosen few as well as some independent persons (to avoid favoritism) who will pick the...
Just wondering what the temperament of jungle carpet pythons is? I read a few books that said that these snakes are bad tempered and aggressive. Is that true? Bite doesn't bother me. I may be a child, but I can take the pain. So what's the opinion? Is their aggressive reputation justified?

I know everyone say to not stress if snakes won't eat. But it's bordering on almost 12 weeks and he shed last week . Was kind of expecting him to eat something this week but still keeps rejecting. Any advice?
It is my understanding when it come to jag and other morphs there is no het
I have seen a lot of reptile for sale as 50% and 100% het for jag
A friend just got a pair of 100% het jag mixed carpet python pay around $900
am i right he will not get jags from that pairing. If people are selling jag...

Just wanting some advice on housing snakes together, I've got two water python hatchlings (male and female), I want to house them together as adults in a 8x4x2ft enclosure. Would it be better to introduce them and house them together now? (In a smaller tank) Or when they are larger? I would feed...
Species Common Name
- Probably a fair bit smaller than most her age, as she has been fed only moderately, but is perfectly healthy and would grow fast with more frequent feeds...
I am a big fan of comparing certain species of snakes. I have researched infrared/thermal detection between some of the boa constrictors here in the Americas compared to some of the pythons with visible heat pits by reading studies, and I've observed activity levels between my boa and other two...
I'm new to the forum, but not keeping reptiles. Im looking to meet new peeps and make friends because my other mates think snakes are scary.
This is my newest addition, Fred.
I also have a water python, who hasn't got a name yet.
And a few others...
My next snake which I plan on...
What's everyone's thoughts on cross breeding snakes (jags)? My thought is that I don't like it at all. If this is ok than what's stopping me from breeding a roughie with a GTP? Or a black headed python with a woma?
Im about to start building a 8x4x2ft enclosure with a my 6x2x2ft aquarium built into it. I just wanted some advice about the two cross beams on top of the aquarium. I want to make the tank look as natural as possible but the two glass cross beams running right through the middle of the...
Black headed python has stopped eating about a month ago and today I realise his bottom half has gone what feels kind of squishy and also seems to be full of liquid. Any ideas?
- - - Updated - - -
Don't worry the squishy ness was a result of an empty belly and for some reason he has just...
I have not been able to find much info on this subject but I read the Mark O'shea book BOAS AND PYTHONS OF THE WORLD
In the book he mentions the scrub python having a potential predator, and that predator was said to be the Olive Python. I don't think I have seen much other info on the subject...
Myself and my partner have been on a few herping trips lately and I thought id put up a few of the highlights.
I'll start with the local stuff. I've just done a couple of pretty dismal nights herping around Brisbane so far.
As there isn't too much to find I've been able to experiment with...
Not too long ago, myself and my girlfried, CVHG, umped onto a pressuresed metal tube and flew 2848.54 km / 1538.09 nautical miles to the NT's night life crazy CBD, Darwin.
We landed at midnight, with boots, camera equipment, a bag full of field guides and a sleeping bag each.
Hey sorry guys quick question.. I got a water python a week and half ago. Tried feeding him twice now once about 3 days ago and again just now.. The guy who sold me him said he needed a lot of handling because he was angry and he never had any time. Mentioned he just shed that day and would be...
Made this custom Terrarium for adult sized python. Really happy with the final outcome. And was relatively easy to do.
In total i payed 170 bucks on materials and a further 100 on bits and pieces for personal likings. Hide hole, water bowl etc.
Basic routine followed measurements made size to...
Hey everyone just joined, new to this so still trying to figure stuff out. Just bought a kick *** new Male water python today! Beautiful colors literally just had a shed to! [emoji16][emoji7] pretty happy.
I'm going to reptile expo on the gold coast in a few weeks and I have my eye out for a new little baby for my birthday.
Can't decide what I'll be getting between a Water python, Roughie or a Blackhead python or a woma.
I guess I'm just posting this to see what others think about thier...

She rubs in against my chin or neck and nods her head up and down quite rapidly, all while pushing, almost head-butting into my neck/chin. Think of the motion as a...

Please share how you got into reptile keeping
Always had a fascination
A friend kept some reptiles
Your kids wanted a snake
My son wanted a snake from the time he could talk....LOL saw one in a pet shop in Melbourne and that was it
Picked up this beautiful female Water Python today.
She's 4 years old, about 6ft and absolutely stunning!
Was going to get an Olive, but the missus wasn't so crash hot on the size factor, this was a compromise but I'm pretty sure I made the better choice. When the light hits her it really is a...
So I've read people saying for a first snake or any I guess not to settle but to get what you want/like. I have become really fond of the water python. I've seen people say that the QLD ones with the yellow belly can be great placid snakes and have heard of people having a great...
It appears that the authorities in Queensland are starting to enforce the rules around hybrids as I have heard of someone getting fined and snakes being confiscated. Has anyone else heard of this happening?
just like to say, when i was thinking about getting a water python, pet shops, reptile breeders, friends who own snakes, had all told me not to get a water python because of the "natural" aggression. i went out and bought a hatchling, wasn't even a month old, he was in shed and was hating the...
hey i just start today, and i just want to see everyones water pythons, as i know they are an uncommon python. i own a 3month old water python, and I'm seriously in love with him, any information or tips would be much appreciated :)
Strange night herping.. drove over a water python on the highway coiled and thought it was dead. Did some more searching 10-15mins later drove back to have a look at the "dead" snake.
Turns out snake was very much alive... with it's tail end coiled jumped out and had a look (busy...
I was sent this earlier today.
Python found in kennel after eating family pet dog
Interestingly there was a google add for dog insurance at the top when I opened it. I didn't know they insured against accidental death by snake.
Hi there everyone, new to the site and will soon be the proud parent/chew toy for a hatchling water python. I had a couple of questions about the enclosure as Ive received a bit of conflicting advice.
The hatchling will be in its own tub that it can hang out in for a couple months. I was told...
Snake eats crocodile after epic fight in Queensland
News reports, and now Wikipedia, have this as a water python, but my first instinct was that it is an olive.
AROD distribution also suggests that it should be an olive python: AROD > Reptiles / Squamata / Pythonidae / Liasis | AROD.com.au
