****, I just paid $600.... I knew I was overpaying when purchasing, but didn't know by how much. Ah well. Lesson learned. I was warned here no to go to a pet shop. And I did. And I bought. All good, it's done now. Yeah, mine's nick name is snappy tom! But once out with the hook is placid as. Lazy eater though. Doesn't even pretend to strangle and choke hold like my other pythons, just opens mouth and starts gulping the pinky as soon as I put it in front of her. What age do they start changing colour? Sorry, I know this is a sale post. (Don't mean to hijack) She was kinda an impulse buy. Wasn't going to get an albino til later down the track, so hadn't done too much background research. But I swiped that credit card and now we have her. Looking forward to watching her grow and change, she is already a beautiful snake.
