    Hey guys, I'm new to owning snakes, my first snake is an Albino Darwin Carpet Python, I'v only had him for almost a week now his 3 months old and I'm keen to see the progress on the colouring as he gets older. I'm just curious on how many months till they start showing some yellow and white colouring. If use could post some photos and how old they are that'd be great.

    Thanks,
    Shay :)

    There are entire threads with pictures like that. If you use the search function you should be able to find some although the pictures may have disappeared by now if they are older threads. Have a look while you are waiting for someone to answer your specific requests.

    Keep trying different search terms until you find what you are after. Being a Friday night, many people will be busy so you may be waiting a while for photos.

    he just turned 2, male. those pics were taken about 4 months ago, he is a bit small for his age as he is a fussy feeder. but last 2 months he has been feeding every week.

    Ha ha, yea he was moving house and it was easier to leave him on there than try to extract him from his favourite bit of mangrove.

    Yep. There's no shortage of mangrove here. I just give it a soak and a scrub and all good!

    Most snakes try to anchor themselves where they are when you try to move them.
