    ok, are these pythons the same as "rough scaled python"? (they look similar)...
    anyway if they are you can get pairs at www.herpshop.com.au/ht/HerpTraderSnakes.html
    this person gives photos(good ones) and only sells pairs ......
    got $24,000?

    you can see the 2 cuties Krauss hatched back in the '80 on the book "Reproductive Husbandry of Pythons and Boas" by Ross and Marzec. I think that $24,000 is a VERY optimistic view as this taxon is far stranger lookink than carinatas and worht even more!
    VERY NICE!!!
    Cheers

    the question is rather....if you had the money would you pay it? the ture worth of a snake is what someone is willing to pay for it! Sorry for going off topic!!!

    I cant afford that money for snakes too! I was only speaking about a GREAT price/value in order to show how much I like them, even MORE than carinata...just my 2% of course as nobody knows for "much how" and "if" there will be ever available.

    It is also my understanding that obtaining Oenpelli is much more difficult now because their range falls entirely within Aboriginal land ownership ie. Arhnem Land. (please dont crucify me if i am wrong)

    never heard them called rock pythons? that really funny because every time I have ever been there on safari with my uncle we hear them called that all the time. Have been lucky enough to see one once.

    To me they look like children's pythons on steroids and those that have seen the first hand have not disagreed with this description.

    I know of somebody who has a captive slough of one ;-)

    you are correct, the three off at the territory wildlife park are the only(legal) ones to my knowledge and from talking to one of the keepers, they arnt that uncommon within their range. its just that they are only found on Aboriginal land. i have heard of afew legal loop holes to this though.

    so pretty much to everyone asking about their price...they are not bred or sold so, therefore, there is no price :wink:

    Hmmm loopholes, may have something to do with gifts from landowners(with a few other legalities left out). But I'm no expert!!
