Cribo! And florida kings

Post by Paul White » January 20th, 2012, 2:05 pm

1.1 cribos from black pear came in today :)
Image female, like 70-80 grams (after she crapped on me putting her into the scale)

The male wasn't cooperating even that well so no pictures. I'm paying on another 1.1--I'll mate them to each other I figure rather than breed siblings.

Also got 1.1 kickass florida kings from Doug Mong :D

Image that's the male...female was not cooperative. They're stunners, should grow real purty.

Paul,

John has amazing animals, I can't wait to see what they turn out like. If you guys don't know Black Pearl aka John Michels has some great snakes, and is pretty awesome to deal with.

Fantastic looking Cribo! The King looks really nice as well - great coloration! John has some nice stuff. I'm half way to paying off a 1.1 of mussuranas (female pied) from him.

oooh nice! I was originally planning on those, but I've wanted an indigo for years--and I figured cribos are the closest I can get w/out worrying about CITES BS.

Nice snakes Paul. What variety of cribo is that?

black tail. I actually like the yellows but at 600+ for CBB ones, yellows are just not something I can do right now. I could manage *one* but I couldn't really get a small group.

I thought that may have been what it was. I owned an adult for a short time some years back and really liked it. Someone made an offer on him one day and I let him go. I still regret that.

Cribos really look like they would be a blast to raise!
