    It's Morelia viridis, chondro is just nick name now, and intergrade is to gradually come together or gradually change from once thing to another.

    and its the last thing you want your pythons to have !!!

    Dicco, we just call them viridis m8, we knew we were on about morelia, so no point stating the obvious! :wink:

    Chondro is a really old name for them, you can blame the americans for that name i believe!

    PeterJohnston64,

    your definition of thermostat is wrong - it should say "a device that regulates the temperature".

    :p

    well I just want to say what a great idea this is!!!

    I was a little confused with some of the scientific name abbriviations especially... so soon learnt what they were.... a good example is Mac or Maccie... Dahhh now I know, but do you know how many sankes have the 'mac' in their scientific name!>!>!>????? no to mention if I thought it might have been a monitor or other lizard...

    SO THE POINT - - - YESSS THANK YOU PETE, AND THE BEST OF LUCK.
