    Despite the similarity in appearance, I don't think Prof_Moreliarty's Dajarra python is an MD. From what I have heard and read the Dajarra python only grows to about 1.5m.
    How old is yours, P_M?

    It’d be about roughly 1.6m give or take. @pinefamily roughly what size would an average captive MD be at that age? I believe they can get 2.5m once adults?

    I think 2 metres or so is more average. Sometimes more.

    Where did you get it from, P_M? Was it sold to you as an MD or as a Dajarra python?
    The first I ever heard of them was when Kel Worley was breeding them.

    The head shape is certainly distinctive. He and I had a discussion about the similarities and differences between the Dajarra's and the Gammon Ranges pythons, which also don't grow as long as other Morelia.

    A couple of Julattens just shed, the old girl is 13 now and loosing contrast a bit, still thinks anything near her cage is food and was eying my phone. The other one is not the best colour but he is so tame with none of the usual jungle aggression I kept him to see if he stays that way.

    The new guy, freshly shed. He/she was named Striker by the previous owner, and the name's stuck.

    Here's a photo of him in sunlight. Probably should have called him Silver. I reckon Silver Striker. He certainly was a nippy little fella but already he's starting to calm down.

    My yearling gosford diamond shed lastnight, got his tail stuck in the shedding as always haha. BTW- is there something wrong with his tail? It looks a bit unusual, might be something to do with the stuck shed.
