    His colours are lovely! And I love how his pattern changes too... kinda reminiscent of the change of pattern in a Rough Scaled Python.

    Thanks stompsy his pattern and colour are pretty cool, I love how the tails on boas are so different to the rest of the pattern, some are just so spectacular

    I don’t know how the Hypo gene works in pythons but in boas it’s a great cleanUp gene that reduces black pigments and increases the red,plus his Hypo harlequin gene is a line bred polygenic co dominant colour mutation of which in the super form can be nearly patternless and that’s really red[​IMG] i actually prefer the tail colour

    My stimmy had a full clean shed last night and my blonde spotted is shedding right now, he/she has been at it for a bit over 5 mins and has the old skin completely off except for a little bunched up bit about half way along his/her body that It's busy trying to rub off now. So by tomorrow morning I'll have 2 great looking photogenic pythons. Will get them outside for decent pics if the rain holds off.

    As promised, here's a "few pics" of my Freshly shed Stimmy and Spotted pythons taken earlier today. The Stimmy shed on the 23/02 and the Spotted shed late yesterday afternoon.

    Warning - Picture heavy, I never handle these guys at all, I only remove them weekly to clean their enclosures and I simply lift their hides that they're hiding in and take them out without handling the snakes themselves so this was a good opportunity to handle them (with some help from wifey and my eldest daughter) and get a good look at them.

    I'm very pleased with how they're going. The Spotted is 13 months old and the Stimmy is 14 months old.

    Enjoy. PS. this is only the first half of the pics, more following.

    She’s 2, was a really bad feeder before she came to me! She’s smashing rats happily now :)
    I’ve never owned an albino so can’t wait to see how she develops :)

    Grey freshly shed. Probably the last one for a while. It's practically winter here and all the critters know it. It was interesting to note that this particular shed cycle took the longest to complete. It was roughly just under a month. He didn't have any problems shedding. It just took him a very long time compared to the usual two weeks, which I find to be more typical among my snakes. Anyway, summer can't come fast enough!

    Wow, those BHPs are big! How long are they? I've heard the Queensland ones can grow as big as 3 metres, but the Western Australian variety are supposed to be a bit smaller.
