    Nice uluru Saz - love the clean banding and reddish colour.

    My female Boodarie (10 months old) finally got her act together and shed today. Here she is on the same background as the male, but not as sunny. She has nice contrast.

    i always feel for the gravid girls but nothing beats seeing your snake belly up/sideways trying to get comfortable.

    Looking good Yommy.

    I can't believe it - I just blowdried a rat for my woma female 8). She hasn't eaten for a while, but I knew she was heading for a shed, so no problems. I was puzzled when she didn't take the rat after her shed, but remembered that she used to like her mice dried when she was younger. Sure enough, the blow dried rat was a big hit. She had better get over this soon! Rats stink worse when you hit them with the blowdrier.

    Sandfire. From my cream belly female. Let's hope that cream stays. Hopefully a few more will be moving around in the morning.

    I pipped all the eggs from that clutch that I had left once I found the first one pipped. Two more were out doing laps and there was another 3 with heads out with 3 more just being fidgety in the eggs when I got home this evening.

    Gee the two today are fiesty little buggers!!

    Well all the Sandfires, bar one that is still attached in the egg, are all in their new homes and weighed. They certainly do have some attitude straight out the box!! I'll get some pics soon.

    Some are relaxed and curious but yeah others are doing the defense display. I guess it's just programmed into them to survive.

    My adults are placid as. The hatches will relax once they are familiar with the surroundings.

    Hey Bryce, that female looks different from other RHD womas, but in a good way. The neck pattern on my girl is disappearing for sure, she's shed once and will probably go under another shed soon. I think she'll have faint pattern throughout, I'm planning to put my super-nice RHD male over her come breeding season next year. I think the combination of faint pattern and rich colours from my male will go very well together.

    I still have another female (the one that came with my male as a pair) that doesn't have any interest in food. I even tried a little quail to no avail hahaha. One of my mates told me he reckons if I threw a finch in there it would last about 5 seconds, one of his mates had a juvenile diamond python that wouldn't touch it's food - that is, until it was offered a live finch...ah well.

    I've had 2 stimmies before, and I can tell you stimmies can be super-aggressive. I think it's a random thing. You can get some nasty ones amongst the general population!
