Herper Friendly Bill Needs Help in NC!
Take Action Against S373 Today!
Senator Bill Nelson of Florida has Proposed a FEDERAL BAN on ALL Pythons. S373 is a Very Simple Bill that calls for no Appropriations (funding). That makes it Dangerous because it would be so easy to pass without any real consideration. We must take Action NOW to try and STOP this Bill from passing as written.
The following galleries have been updated with some new pictures!
Ball Pythons: Black Pastel, Enchi, Lesser
Short-tailed Pythons: P. Curtus Light Head, P. Curtus Yellow Head, P. Brongersmai
Just finished a quick face lift to the site to give it a little more oomph. You may also notice a small addition to the navigation bar on the right. The "What’s New" section is just a little spot where we’ll keep links to the newest content on the site; whether it be articles, pictures, or anything else that may get added off of the main page. Enjoy!
The breeding season is going pretty good for us so far. The three girls that we’ve observed copulations with have all shed recently and have some decent follicles growing. Unfortunately, the two young boys that I was REALLY hoping would go for us don’t seem to be interested in girls yet. Hopefully they’ll get the hang of it sooner than later. 😀
I just received word from our FedEx representative that we are now officially certified to ship with them. It’s only been… what, about 2 months since I originally tried to get the whole process going?
This pastel is a freakin’ PIMP! It’s only been two hours since I threw him in the tub with this girl and he’s already got her locked down. This girl is looking pretty dark right now as she’s getting close to another shed, but she is GORGEOUS right after she sheds. She almost looks like a pastel, so we’re really hoping that she’ll throw some nice, bright, clean pastels.
This will most likely be the last pairing for a while. We’ve got a few more planned, just waiting until the girls put on a bit more weight. Number one on the list is our het clown pairing from last year that we struck out on. The female is at 1400 grams right now, so we’re looking at pairing them up around February or so — which should put her right around 1500-1600 grams.
We’ve also got our female spider up to weight, just waiting for our little lesser and enchi boys to hit puberty and figure out what to do with her. Another girl we’re holding back for those two is our wild caught girl that gave us our possible het pieds last year. She’s just under 1700 grams right now, so by the time those guys are ready she should be able to lay a nice sized clutch for us. 😉
Third day into the season for us and we’ve got our second lock already. Both these snakes have a pretty nice reduced/banded pattern going on. Should produce some good looking possible het. caramels. Rock on!
First lock of the season! I’ve finally discovered something that Michigan winters are good for — ball python breeding! Just put them together last night and they were already locked up this morning when I checked on them before work. This pairing is a male pastel to a female hypo, but there’s a catch — this pastel is a 66% possible heterozygous hypo. Keep your fingers crossed!
Our breeding season is FINALLY getting started. I started three pairings tonight, and there’s still a few more girls that need to pack on some weight before we pair them up. Should be a great season for us! I should have the Breeding Projects page updated sometime this week — depending on if I see any locks or not. In other news, I’m slowly getting everything on the site flipped over to run on WordPress. It’s great for setting up news posts and simple galleries, but just a total pain in the rear for other things.
