    ***Current stock on hand 13/10/18 - 2 x sub-adult (#3 and #5) and 1 x juvenile (*1)***


    $300ea ONO, discounts for multiples
    Absolutely stunning pythons! These robust little guys only get to 80cm max, have bold markings, and generally are good handlers.... there's a couple persistently snappy individuals.
    Pygmy Banded's are Mossman Valley locale.
    Mum and Dad both handle well.

    Selling the last 2 years cluthches to clear some space for the new hatchies.
    4 x yearlings all feeding well approx. 40cm - 25g
    4 x 2yos.... 2 x slow starters approx. 50-60cm <100g and 2 x more advance about 120g >60cm
    Also have 5 beautiful newbies, not yet ready for sale
    They have not been formally sexed but I'm not bad at judging by sight from the subtle cues.

    Willing to freight via Qantas at buyers expense

    Hi, just wondering are the pythons in the first and third image still available? If so, how old are they?

    Ok, so fairly confident #3 is a male. #5 looks to be a female by comparison.

    I just love these guys ,they were my first snakes.I bought mine 3 years ago thinking they were Perthensis because the ad said Pygmy Python. My son said get them so we have all the Childreni,turns out there are 5 types of Childreni, not 4.Should be reclassified as a separate, and not classed as a Stimsons.

    dragonlover1, I totally get that confusion. I've had to explain a few times that they are not the perthensis and that here in SA these pygmys can be kept on the basic permit, being stimsons.

    MakDaddy, I'll get back to you on that one tomorrow evening :)

    +3 (another from the 2017 clutch) is also now ready for sale eating confidently, picture to come.

    Mumma looks like she is gravid with 6 or 7 eggs, due to lay in a couple weeks too :-D

    I was lucky enough to get one of Smurfs Pygmy Stimsons and I have to say she is just the sweetest little girl. An absolute joy to own and so different to my big guys (MD, Albino Darwin etc) not just in size (obviously) but she's very curious and confident, I just love her to bits.

    Hi Dragonlover,
    My brother picked up his Banded Pygmies form someone who this happened to, he got them quite cheap in the end. Once they realised they weren't Perthensis they didn't want them. Madness!

    She does, I remember when she was so small she'd fit in the palm of my hand (she still tries to)...but she's just gorgeous and eats like a champ.
