Impressive amount, and geez that's a healthy looking Mulga
It's a Top End Mulga and from what I was told recently it appears it might be the only one they have got left. I heard that someone put this bloke in with a couple of females during cleaning and he was the only one that came out of it. Nice looking critter though.
Another bit of free publicity for the ARP and coincidently just in time for the school holidays. Good on them...hahaha. Looks like they've decided to steer away from the old alligator getting stolen and returned routine...hahaha.
Geez, poor female snakes. :shock:
And yep, you're right about that free publicity, I just found this on their website lol
There is other top end mulgas about.
I spoke with Bill, this animal is a Kununurra mulga. I have a small Kununurra that is fast growing.
Awesome animal Andy!
I love mulgas, but I don't see myself getting a top end local as yet due to the huge size they get.
Will start a little smaller first hahaha
I am hoping to put a couple together this year, maybe Alice locale. Fingers crossed.
Good luck mate, there much risk for the animals when pairing up for breeding?
I really like the reds like the "St George" local.
But my wife will not allow vens until I've got a dedicated room just for them, so will be in a year or so...
I have heard stories about them eating each other but Shane Black seems to have a lot of success. I think it will be nervous at first but has to be done. I have a really nice red as well but mine is from Renmark in SA. It is best to have a good secure room with kids, I have two kids and have very strict protocols about them knocking before coming in what not.
He does seem to have quite a bit of success with a lot of elapids from what I've seem him post on FB.
I think you posted a pic of it up on the Mulga post on the FB Aussie Elapids group yeah?
There were a few stunning animals show on that.
Of course, that's why we decided (I was happy to move all the pythons out into the lounge room) we'll wait till the house is ready before making that move. Will want to do it right first time to save having to re-work things down the track.
Yeah mate it was. Here it is if there are any other red mulga fans here.
Bloody wow... Oh to have the right license...
Holy sht that's a stunner! How many mulgas do you keep?
About 9 or 10 mulgas at present. I love the variation of colours among different locals. Very cool snakes indeed.
