Next year if I can find suitable pairs: Bornean Short-tailed Pythons, DCI Carpet Pythons, Jungle Carpet Pythons, Amazon False Coral Snakes

2-3 years when some have size: Mussuranas and Bimini Island Boas

Those CA Kings are sweet!

Thanks! You have a good size collection going there. I bet they keep you busy. Not many people work with those Cat-eyed snakes that I know of.

Zach, great minds think alike. lol

Justin, I love those goini.

I'm trying to breed my mexican hogs this year. I've seen them locked up a few times, but no signs of the female being gravid :(

Next year, I hope to try my easterns and southerns.

Are you obtuse? I hope you know that there are "hognose" snakes on three continents, and they span quite few species. There are countless localities for King snakes, let alone species... Maybe you shouldn't have posted in this thread, it seems to be beyond your grasp.

No permit is required for keeping Eastern indigos in California, but one would be needed to transport them across state lines.

As far as what I have going on this year I have green tree python eggs and 2 clutches of ball python eggs in the incubator right now. I may be getting Bredl's python eggs, but I am not sure at this point. I produced 19 Rio Fuerte beaded lizards earlier this year, and I hope to produce Madagascar giant hognose, black milksnakes, Andean milksnakes, Tamaulipan ratsnakes, cave dwelling ratsnakes, and maybe Argentine boas if I am lucky...

Various subspecies and localities of Lampropeltis triangulum. It's hard to get a reliable follicle/ova palp done on a rubber boa, so one or several of my females may be gravid, too. If so, add Charina bottae to the list.

First this happens:

Thanks, Gerry! Those two particular adults are absolutly smokin'. For realz. The photo was lightened in an editing program - it was taken when the room was pretty dark to avoid distrubing them. She's about 3 times his size, so if she decides to move, he's just along for the ride.

I currently have eggs from Ghost Hondurans, Albino Nelsons, Okeetee Corns, Hypo Everglades ratsnakes, and some random corn snake eggs that came in to adoptions. I am waiting on Blackheaded Python eggs, Kenyon Sand Boa babies x3 females, Amazon Tree Boa babies x3-4 females, and hopelessly waiting on woma eggs... they don't look likely... at all. Got a few more years before things get really cool and I can breed Pseustes poecilonotus, P. sulphureus, and Spilotes pullatus. Oh and I have some carpet python babies.

Hornemadness - I'd love to see your viper boas. Candoia are one of my favorite genera.

P.deppei jani, western hognose, and in the not terribly distant future, eastern coachwhips, rubber boas, O.p.coxi. Also, working with ackies, fire skinks, and a small leopard gecko colony. I pretty much only breed the geckos to give away to friends and family wanting a beginner herp for their kids.

I'm a big fan of the uncommon, "underappreciated" stuff, with a particular soft-spot for large, active, arid-adapted colubrids. Malpolon and Ptyas (even though those are less arid) are my dream critters. As well as a whole slew of Australian elapids I can't have unless I leave the states. Sigh.

Gerry,

:lol: :beer: I hear. Thanks for the kind words, too! If you ever make it up this way, you're more than welcome. We can discuss the ins and outs of the picky little buggers over some locally-crafted beverages, even. I'm serious.

Chris,

You've caught me off-gaurd! I honestly don't have any recent photos of any of my Charina to post. Not many people seem to care what they look like, so I haven't ever been prompted to spend much time with them and the camera. I'll try to get something done soon, but work's been busy (even working weekends right now). I'll post when I get some photos done.

No worries Cole! :) I know rubber boas pretty much all look the same, but it's just something about them that interests me. They definitely intrigue me and I always love seeing them when the opportunity seldom arises.

I will definitely keep your invitation in mind, amigo! :beer: My wife and I have been applying for various MT wildlife biology/conservation positions; I haven't gotten asked to interview for anything up there yet, but I reckon it's only a matter of time until I do. And getting a job and becoming a neighbor would be even better than just visiting for an interview, of course! ;)

I am too much of a control freak to breed anymore. I worry too much about where they will go.

If I had more time at home I would breed phantasticus or other of cult following because of the obsessive seriousness of those mostly that keep them.

I love cooking eggs and starting neonates. I have only used vermiculite coarse pref. I use a cabinet with 3" flex watt (stapled across back wall)and hydor on the top shelves (looped in a spiral along side walls) which may or may not be used depending on whats cooking in the boxes. Sometimes will take in eggs. Either to keep all or for a pick of the litter. I have dabbled in suspension and would like to try more but I am almost sentimental about vermiculite .

Some kick ass animals posted here. Cole, those milks are marvelous; I honestly think some of the north american milks are prettier than hondurans and pueblans. I can't imagine breeding animals too small to take pinky mice.

Those E. milaris are pretty awesome too.
