    After many years of waiting I finally have some Pinstripe (stimsoni) hatchies!

    Congrats! You'd be better off having them popped within a day of two of hatching, I personally wouldn't probe any Ants until 12 months or more depending on size.

    I had a female as my first python. Only time she ever struck at me was taking her off the eggs. She has only ever missed one feed and she was in slough at the time. As hardy as a regular stimi just smaller. I likr to put her in my hoodie pocket when im doing my reptile chores. They love to eat. Only problems ive ever had is sometimes she has trouble with shedding. But I think thats on me not her.

    Justdragons, Anteresia can be probed as hatchies with out any problems as long as you know what your doing, its quite easy really.
    I dont probe any untill after they have shed from hatching thou.

    I have a hatchie banded pygmy.
    It did bite me 3 times when I got it out of the sack but since then it has been fine.
    The thing eats like a champ.
    I would have to say it is very shy compared to my woma hatchie. But thinking about the size comparison I don;t blame it.

    As I am looking at getting either a banded Pygmy or a Pygmy python, I'd like to see them rather than buy online.
    Is anyone going to the Castle Hill Reptile Expo this year selling the above?

    They're Pinstripe Stimsons - photo's of the parents should be in this thread somewhere. :) They develop a lovely dark chocolate colouring and retain the pale 'pinstripes'.
