    Behind the bushes, Qld
    It appears the Liasis albertisii has been bumped over to Morelia albertisii (Underwood & Stimson, 1990). Given that scientists like to change their minds all the time tho, don't know if it's official or what. Being patternless, I would have thought liasis more suitable but hey, I'm a builder not a zoologist!

    I'm sure I read somewhere that someone in Oz has bred or tried to breed this python. Anyone know if this is the case? Would love to see this snake make it's way into the hobby at large.

    With my snakes
    Everywhere I have read lists the albertisii as Liasis.

    I wonder what made them change the bredli's name from Morelia Bredli to Morelia s. Bredli. In some of the highly recommended books such as Cogger's, Pythons of Australia the bredli was called Centralian Python and not classed as a carpet. I always thought they were a carpet but was talking about this with someone just the other day.

    even further, there is apparently sub species... although i dont think NPWS cares..

    considering their colour changes from each area, scale size and body type variations.. surely it should be generally accepted. they do with carpets.

    Just quickly

    Varanus glebopalma Black palmed rock monitor
    Varanus glauerti
    2 species known to be legally held.
    Also Nephrurus wheeleri Banded knob tailed gecko young were advertised for sale this year in NSW.
  8. Hey Cris (nice Spencers on your avatar BTW),

    You forgot Varanus Glauerti and V. Timorensis is only available off shore; our Spotted Tree Monitors are V. Scalaris!
