Some breeding updates.

Just about finished relocating everyone after building the 41 qt rack.  That one is all filled up with our smaller short-tailed pythons, the rainbow boas, the adult corn snake, and our 5 biggest ball python girls.  Just have to move a few juvies from the hatchling rack over to the 28 qt rack and I should have enough room to house all the possible hatchlings we may still get this year.

These are just a couple of locks from the past couple months or so that never got posted.  The first is our wild caught girl, who threw some really bright normals last year, locked up with our pastel.

 

This is the first lock I’ve actually observed from our lesser.  Apparently this girl being in shed was enough to get him going. 😀

I’ve been proven wrong

I know I’ve been seriously slacking with blog updates, but you’d think Chris would find something to write here, now wouldn’t you? 🙂

Work has been crazy for me these past few weeks, and when I get home, I find I can’t muster up a little bit of energy to write about anything snake related. On our side of the world, things have been relatively uneventful these past few weeks.

Chris did build a new 41qt breeder rack last weekend. Turned out costing far more than it should have. He feels he should have just built one at the shop from aluminum instead. While I think the metal racks are very nice, it takes forever for him to get around to building it! I often say, Chris flip flops more than a politician. Ha! I’ll more than likely get a picture up of the new rack shortly. It was nice to move the Brazilian rainbow boas into their new larger tubs. They appreciated it!

Now the next big TO-DO is mustering up some cash for purchasing new Boaphile caging for the bloods. Every one of them has grown so much in the past year, it’s time to upgrade!

We got pippers!

Chris and I are happy to show off the little ball pythons that just began to emerge from the egg, and a little pastel pipping!
