ASF Breeders

Monday, December 14th, 2009

If you haven't had the chance to check it out yet, here is a link to our ASF Breeders page.

ASF Breeders **NEW!**

And here is why to use this page. 🙂

I am pleased to announce that we will be hosting an ASF Breeders listing on our website. We are not in competition with any person or forum, but want to offer this for informational purposes. You are invited to be a part of this listing and I do hope you join.

Over the past year, our website has grown to be one of the top search engine results for African soft furred rats, with 58% of our new traffic coming through search engines alone. This is a globally reached site, with hits coming in from 38 different countries, and easily reaching between 600 and 800 visits per month. We are currently forecasting 630 views will be rolling in each of the comings months ahead to the end of the year.

PUT DOWN S. 373!!

Friday, December 11th, 2009


"The National Python & Boa ban upon passage would immediately ban the import, export, and movement from state to state of Indian Pythons, Burmese Pythons, African Rock Pythons, Green Anacondas, Yellow Anacondas, and Boa Constrictors."

"December 10, 2009 Wilmington, NC-

Driven by powerful special interests and much media sensation S. 373 aka ‘The Python Ban’ is likely to move forward despite lack of scientific justification. Pushed by Sponsor Senator Bill Nelson and the Humane Society of the United States S. 373 could devastate the trade in high quality captive bred reptiles in the United States.

Today the Senate Committee on the Environment & Public Works (EPW) will hold a business meeting on S. 373. The Committee Chair is Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and the Ranking Member is Senator James Inhofe (R-OK). The committee will hold a mark up session where they will consider S. 373, to amend title 18, United States Code, to add constrictor snakes of the species Python genera to the Injurious Wildlife list of the Lacey Act. The committee is expected to amend the bill to include the 9 snakes listed on a recent controversial report by the US Geological Survey (USGS). All tolled the bill could stop the import, export and interstate transport of as many as 45 species of Boas and Pythons.

It’s been a while…

Sunday, December 6th, 2009

Where does the time go?  I just realized that it's been almost a month since the last time I made a post on here.  There really isn't much news happening over here, we've made most of our planned pairings for the ball pythons that we're looking for and getting locks with almost every pair.  We've also started pairing up our "secret" project, but no action on that front yet.  Have to see what happens there, hopefully there will be some news in the near future with them. 😉

I'll leave you with a little picture of our heterozygous peibald male breeding with his possible het. daughter from last year.  She's up to size already, but there's no follicle development, so who knows what will happen there.  Got my fingers crossed though!
