    Hey guys so I'm wanting to get a albino Darwin carpet python. I have wanted a carpet for a while. I want a albino Darwin because not only does it look amazing but also I have heard they have a great temperament and handle very well. I have only had one other snake in the past and that was a spotted python.

    Would you recommend getting a albino Darwin or something else. I would love to hear your thoughts

    My dad has one its a great snake, nice temperament but his very nocturnal and can be a tiny bit fussy with feeding

    Maybe I'm biased because I have lots of them but I have also kept just about every other kind of Australian python. A well bred albino Darwin (must be pure Darwin) is the best pet snake by a mile, they are placid and can be dog tame with regular handling, Yes some are timid feeders as hatchlings compared with other carpets but once they get past that they are very easy to keep and well bred ones are bullet proof health wise but beware of cross breeds and jags.

    Of course you biased are YT.
    Should be honest with the guy and tell him to get a Scrubby.
