    After all that pining, I finally have my first Green Tree Python. And s/he is a gorgeous little snake. She's also nice and friendly, not like my snappy children's python hatchy lol.

    Bryce dropped her off today and I wanted to say thanks, and let everyone know what a pleasure he is to deal with. From the start he always kept me up to speed with little updates on her progress as well as sending photos.
    He also took the time to help me setup the clickclack (I had about 5 tubs, lol, most were unsuitable for some reason or another), but in the end he helped me get it right :)

    I haven't got any photos yet as I wanted to let her get settled in first. I sneaked a peek earlier and she's just peachy :)

    In the meantime im contemplating my next one, maybe a red one this time lol. I know how addictive (and expensive) this hobby can be and now I'm worried I have opened Pandora's box.

    Thanks again Bryce, and to anyone contemplating it, definately go thru BFR! Genuine and honest! 5 star rating :)

    Will update with a photo when I can.

    Cheers
    Kev

    Here's one from before I got her. As always, pictures never capture true colour.
    I hope to have my DSLR next week and plan to take some great photo's of my new friend.

    Hi Kevin, I'm glad you are happy mate. How did the young one settle in?

    You were great to deal with also mate. I can see the passion you have for reptiles and I know the animal is in good hands. all the best and congrats once again. f you need anything at all just give me a call anytime.

    Smiley Snake - A couple breeders I know of have payment plans. Mine go for 12months and all you need to do is put down a 20% deposit and then you can pay as much or as little as you like over that 12months.

    Depends on the animal you buy but yes 20% of the total purchase price, different breeders will have some different prices. i will pricing my animals this year differently to some. mine will start at $900 and go up to $1500 including everything in-between. In the coming 1-2 years i will hopefully also have some different localities avail as well.

    She's doing great. First thing I did this morning was head into her room to check on her :)

    And that's something I forgot to mention, your payment plan! At the time it would have been impossible for me to save that much money. I never would have been able to afford one without your help.

    Thanks again :)
