    Ecosnake, does your outdoor enclosure face northeast so they bask in the sun. And do you have a indoors enclosure for them during winter. I'm just after some tips as I want to do the same. Feed time must be fun with a walk in enclosure.

    Thanks Browns, I bought him as an ugly little hatchling that no one else wanted off a guy in Coffs Harbour. As he grew I started to get lots of compliments on him even though I thought he was nothing special but overtime he has really grown on me and become a very special snake...a favourite in my collection. I just wish I could find a female that looked similar or get ahold of the guy that bred him to see if he has anymore that have turnede out similar or to find out any locality info.

    Another one. Poor fella has an enlarged heart, so he's just a pet now and will never be bred from. Waste of potential.

    Put it near a phone, if it crawls around it you have a female.
