@Herptology how much did the chimeras sell for?

I'm not sure what he sold his for (I'm sorry, I just can't type that name with that spelling), but chimeras are all unique and price varies with quality. When I've sold them I've put them up as EOI. Last season there did seem to be a bit of a going rate established for 'top end' chimeras among people with their finger on the pulse, but a fair few jokers would ask if they could have them for the same price as a regular marble or maybe offer just a little extra. Haha, pretty funny.

Hopefully we produce more this season. It's always very exciting because they're all so different and unique.

So someone is clearly at home in their new enclosure! Got home about an hour ago, and my new Stimmie hid around the log for a bit (warm end) now just chilling at the front for photo opps :)6ADED761-4A9D-4FA4-99FE-493B1568125B.jpeg

Looks about the same size as my new stimmie @Ronnii! Your enclosure looks a lot bigger than mine though, loving the rock wall!

Thanks!! It's about 30cms long. Can't wait to start to begin to handle the little one. The enclosure is 45x45x45. Plenty of room but not overly huge.

So I got Smaug out today to see how he'd be with some handling, and he was totally chilled out, just exploring around my hand and the doona cave I made for him. Cleaned his enclosure and weighed him... All of 37 grams :D

Am thinking of his forever home though. He loves being able to explore, always reaching up to the top of his tank like he wants to climb on something, so he doesn't appear concerned about the big world.

First snake. Received last night (via a 9 hr freight ride) from peter birch. 8 month old Ghost Childrens. He was super active in the little setup I put him in till he's big enough/set up the 90x45x60 that I have for him. Kept reading everywhere not to feed him, then others saying could feed him. He kinda seemed to be looking for food... and had been told and have his feed history that he's a really good eater and was due a day or so ago so thought 'worse case I'll just feed all my local outdoor snakes the fuzzy if he won't take it'. Little bugger snapped it straight away and downed it in 3mins from start to finish.... guess I was worried for no reason!
