    There are no pure carpet lines internationally that can be proved to be pure lines

    So its basically the same as in Australian then? Jungles are only found in Queensland and it is illegal to take from the wild so any Jungles in captivity would have to be of unknown origin ;)

    Actually, Paul bought the first Zebra from a gentleman (in France I believe). It was produced by a pair of seemingly normal Jungle Carpets. That gentleman couldn't get the zebra to do anything so, it was sold to Paul. Paul then proved it out.

    Cheers,

    That is incorrect because there have been several amnesties in Australia which allowed wild caught reptiles to be registered and kept by their owners
    Some of the pure lines can be directly traced right back

    Actually this thread is about Zebra carpet python morphs.. Not opinions or information that is not relevant and that is off topic to the thread.. Feel free to start a threat on other subjects , But lets keep threads on topic.
    Heres the facts from the breeder who proved out of the Zebra Jungle Carpet morph. Paul Harris..
    UK Pythons - Investment quality pythons direct from the breeder!

    Is anyone actually waiting in line to purchase a zebra? I just cant see why there is a big fuss... I think they just look like ugly jungles :S I'm not a morph hater, quite the oposite.

    I guess these could get interesting combining the pattern(possible?)? Please advise :)

    Those amnesties were not just for wild caught reptiles but were also for people keeping and breeding captive breed reptiles as well, I am unsure how may can be "traced right back" if you have to rely on word of mouth.

    Also this is off topic so show us your pure Zebra Jungles.

    Watch for the world record price drop! I have heard of some people asking 4K! Are there really people willing to spend that on them?

    The old saying goes you get what you pay for, the higher quality and multi gene animals are still over 6k. Same as high quality and multi gene jags are still over 2k.
    They were 5k last season for a run of the mill zebra so not much of a price drop, if the actually are being or going to be sold for 4k (a lot of rumours get thrown around) I see them holding there price alittle better then jags did because you can get a super form.

    Not wanting to stir up a hornet's nest but took this dodgy pic a few weeks ago of my zeb female sitting on some nice eggs. They are looking like nice healthy eggs so far into incubation. Hopefully I get a few nice looking animals from this clutch.

    May I ask how one defines the different levels of quality in the Zebras ?

    Is it the lineage or the appearance or what else ?

    If I want to purchase a zebra what should I look for ?

    Cheers
    Sandee :)
