    Simple procedure just cost more $$$$ which is crazy but thats the system. And especially if your going to put the topaz together (there would be an extra 8-12 to add to your books)
    At least you have time to save for the boodaries :)

    Good project there Jason after the pilbara womas the RHD are No 2 on my favourites list.

    Have a great new years everyone great things for 2012 i reckon :)

    It's just my personal opinion. I just like the bold pattern and contrast of the boodaries straight out of the egg.
    Here's one of my adult pairs, I think they would be regarded good looking RHD's by most peoples standards, however as hatchies in my opinion they look crap. I hatched out a male last season that will look much better than these guys but I think he looks crap currently, I just have to be patient and wait for him to color up. sorry about the male pic being so crap

    These photos are taken over a few days, from start of hatching to when i moved some to their containers... out of 7 eggs, only 6 were viable, of those 6 eggs, 4 have come out, the other 2 have pipped but still in the eggs.. so of 6 viable eggs, 100percent hatch rate... WOO HOO weights of hatchlings range from 31.0 to 32.1g so far.
    Thankyou all

    Love that white colour, just saw the other thread on variations, and that white WA woma is a stunner!

    Keep up the good work No-two! :D

    Don't you love it when you cop a bite and the next day the bite mark is itchy and you pull two teeth out your arm. Lol

    I got nailed once by my large female, yep you guessed it she was hungry and had been making rat-a-tat-tat noises on her tub - for the first time - and one of the teeth went right in, had to boil a stitching needle, wait for it to cool, then dig in and prise the tooth out. Didn't feel nice, but there was plenty of betadine on it.

    Now I know every time I hear that tapping sound she is hungry and a rat comes out of the freezer and sits on the bench for a few hours, then pull the tub out and in it goes, a few seconds later she's wrapped tightly around it like a rubber band.

    I'm usually pretty good at dodging getting bitten cause once you pick them up they realize there is no food on offer and handle awesome. But I just picked up one of my females and she latched onto my wrist. Lol. Took forever to get her off. Had to run her under the water in the shower. Lol.

    All of mine have crazy feeding responses. They all launch and coil hard.

    That's how womas should be. Food crazy. Any of the womas I intend to breed (and sell offspring) will be food crazy. If some are difficult feeders they won't be used in my breeding program and if they are they will be selected for their enthusiasm for food - to me that is the key indicator of the health of a snake. If a snake is easily stressed, goes off their food, it is not a healthy animal, of course that is my opinion but I'll bet Brisbane to a brick that my views on this have their basis well founded in science.

    Yeah, mines the same. He's SUPER inquisitive ALL THE TIME, gorgeous to handle, never refuses a meal but never goes psycho and tries to eat me instead of the food. He's only a year old though. We'll see what happens as he matures. XD
