2020 Update!

Sunday, February 23rd, 2020

Hey everybody! Long time no post! Do people even keep snakes anymore?!? Joking aside, this sure hasn't been updated in a long time but is probably still helpful to some people so we keep paying the dues to keep this site up and running (with tape and sticks).

Updates: We did finally remove the ASF rat breeder page as it seemed very out of date and a few emailed us asking for their names removed. We've killed the page just to make sure.

We do still have a few snakes left, and plan to probably reduce down to maybe 1 or 2 keepers, but largely are now out of the reptile husbandry.

That's it for now! Our email is still active so feel free to reach out. Cheers!

No more rats!

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

Hi everyone,
Beginning in 2006, we've always had some rodents in the house. Either as pets, or feeders, or both. As of earlier this year, we no longer breed any rats. It has also been several years since we kept ASF rats either. All we have left are probably house mice and our two big boy pet rats (Biggs and Wedge).

I have updated all of the rat pages to note that we no longer keep rats; hence why this post.

We occasionally get emails asking for pet rats, and we even provided some as pets to local people. But we just made the decision to switch completely over to frozen thawed for the snakes.

Please feel free to continue to send in your comments or questions. We still love to know what people think of the website. Even though a lot of the cost data is very old and out of date, we know that we still get a lot of visitors and hope the rodent pages here continue to help people who want to breed.

Best of luck!

New site host!

Thursday, February 16th, 2017

I've just moved the site over to a new host and am running into some database issues, so some parts of the site may not be working properly at the moment. Sorry for any inconvenience!

Male clearance sale!

Monday, November 21st, 2016

I'm looking to move as many of the males I have listed for sale out before the end of the year so have cut all their prices in half!  If there's anything you've been eyeing up now is a good time to snatch it up!

Last of my Sumatran short tails!

Sunday, August 21st, 2016

This guy is the last of my Sumatran short tails! He was a hold back from my reverse stripe project, hatched in 2012, and weighs in at 3857 grams. He's sold!

Oh my…

Thursday, August 18th, 2016

Just got this little girl in... 😀

Albino orange dream development!

Wednesday, August 10th, 2016

Albino orange dreams go through a pretty amazing transformation with some age... This is the same animal as a hatchling in 2014, 2015 at a year old, and today almost 2 years later.

This girl though!

Monday, April 4th, 2016

Sittin' pretty at 1500 grams. 😀

About time!

Saturday, August 8th, 2015

Pretty excited to see this! The enchi/orange dream/vanilla male is finally locking with my clean vanilla girl that produced those smoking hot pastel super vanillas for me in 2014.

This girl’s a little hottie…

Tuesday, August 4th, 2015

Finally got some outdoor pictures of this girl! 600 grams and still the hottest animal in my collection. The range of colors and contrast on this girl are just amazing to me!

30% off all listed prices!

Sunday, March 22nd, 2015

I'm offering a 30% discount on all listed prices for the rest of the month as a thank you to everyone who has liked the facebook page!

Looking good!

Monday, February 23rd, 2015

Black pastel orange dream pinstripe after her latest shed... can't wait to add fire or yellowbelly to this mix!

Super enchi!

Thursday, February 19th, 2015

Super enchi female looking good at 1300 grams! Pretty sure I'm going to pair her with the enchi orange dream vanilla male later this year. 😀

New mobile site!

Wednesday, February 11th, 2015

If you're accessing the website through a mobile device you may see some bugs here and there as I'm in the process of setting an optimized version of the site for mobile users.  Just a heads up!

The hottest girl around!

Friday, January 30th, 2015

I was taking pictures of some other ball pythons and couldn't resist snapping a few more of this Barnhart black pastel/orange dream/spider/yellowbelly girl... she's by far my favorite that I hatched in the 2014 season, can't wait to see her at 1000 grams!

Enchi orange dream and enchi orange dream vanilla!

Sunday, January 25th, 2015

Just a quick update shot of the enchi orange dream female and enchi orange dream male... loving these two!


Saturday, January 17th, 2015

My 'last' clutch from 2014 ended up being my first clutch of 2015!  Five eggs from an albino spider bred to this enchi het albino girl. 😀

Christmas clutch!

Thursday, January 1st, 2015

The Barnhart black pastel yellowbelly X dreambee clutch made for a pretty nice Christmas present!  Here's the highlights of the clutch -- a female black pastel/orange dream/spider/yellowbelly and a male black pastel/spider/yellowbelly.

Couple of hopeful pairings for 2015…

Sunday, November 9th, 2014

Enchi orange dream vanilla X pinstripe vanilla and fire orange dream pinstripe X black pastel orange dream. Both of these pairings could have some really cool outcomes!

Enchi orange dream vanilla!

Saturday, November 8th, 2014

This guy just had his second shed and I couldn't be happier with him.  Can't wait for him to hit 500 grams!

Dreambee on eggs!

Sunday, October 26th, 2014

This is what I THOUGHT was going to be my last clutch for the year.  Really looking forward to hatching this clutch out right around Christmas.  She was paired with my Barnhart black pastel yellowbelly. 😀

Here comes a curve ball!

Sunday, October 26th, 2014

Guess I'm not done yet after all! Opened up this enchi het albino girl's tub last night to feed her to find that she had shed and started glowing. I stopped pairing this girl up months ago as she was the smaller of the two girls and didn't feel much development going on. Just goes to show you that just when you think you've got ball pythons figured out it's pretty much guaranteed they'll throw you a curve ball!

Hypo enchis!

Monday, October 20th, 2014

Hypo enchis have shed! Pictured are 1.2 hypo enchis along with the female enchi possible het hypo clutchmate.

Orange dream enchi vanilla!

Tuesday, October 14th, 2014

Didn't make it to Tinley this past weekend but I did get this guy in today.  He's going to have his work cut out for him when he's ready to go this next season. 😀

Shattered Dreams post shed!

Tuesday, October 14th, 2014

They darkened up quite a bit, but I can't wait for the orange dream to kick in after a few sheds!  Click on the image to go to the gallery page for more pictures of them.
