Super vanilla pastels!

Friday, August 29th, 2014

Clutch number 12 is fully hatched! This pairing was my smoking pastel vanilla male to a very nice vanilla female. Results are 1.2 super vanilla pastels, 0.2 vanilla pastels, 1.0 pastel, 1.1 vanillas, and 1.0 normal. All but the female super vanilla pastels will available from this clutch.

Barnhart black pastel lesser stuff…

Monday, June 16th, 2014

Well this was nice to wake up to! Now to figure out if the odd one is the triple... The parents of this clutch were Barnhart black pastel yellowbelly x lesser.

Hurry up already!

Don't make me get the spoon out...

And the first hatchling of the year…

Is this hot little orange dream pinstripe girl!

Capital City Reptile Show and super enchis!

Sunday, September 8th, 2013

Set up a table at a show for first time today at the Capital City Reptile Show.  Got a lot of attention with the black bloods but unfortunately didn't sell anything.  Had a pretty good time anyway and overall it was a positive experience! If you came to the show and would like to know more about our available Sumatran short-tailed pythons, please check out our page!

Coming home to see this clutch all out of the egg completely made up for the slight disappointment of not selling anything!  Ended up with 0.2 super enchis, 1.1 enchis, and 0.1 normals, all possible het hypo.

Orange dreaminess…

Monday, September 2nd, 2013

Clutch bp13-2 is out and the final tally is 1.2 orange dreams and 1.2 normals!  These orange dreams are killer, it's gonna be rough deciding whether to keep them or let them go...

I did nothing, the pavement was his enemy!

Bonus points if you get the reference without looking it up!

Ended up with 3.2 het clowns from four eggs in our first clutch this year.  Unfortunately the possible het clown girl didn't prove out, but I'll try her again next year.

Whoops!

Friday, December 14th, 2012

A little late, but our last clutch hatched out last week.  Ended up with 0.1 black pastel orange dream, 0.2 orange dreams, 2.0 black pastels, and 0.1 normal... NERD line black pastels.  Pretty happy with the black pastel orange dream, although it'd be nice if she was a male!  Anyways, here's some fresh out of the egg pictures of her.  Can't wait to see her post shed!

More good odds!

Friday, November 30th, 2012

Well our pastel x vanilla clutch is finished hatching out, ended up with 1.1 pastel vanillas and 2.0 vanillas.  Think I may have to keep both the pastel vanillas...

Python Curtus hatchlings now available!

Friday, November 16th, 2012

I finally found time to get some pictures of these guys and get them listed!  We're asking $300 for males, $350 for females, or $600 for pairs.  You can find them in the available section of our website!

Dreamy!

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

Boy have I been slacking on updating the webpage!  I've apparently taken to posting updates to facebook and forgetting to do it here also.  Clutches 9 and 10 are both out, and both had great odds!

Clutch 9, ended up with 3.3 albino spiders and 4.0 albinos.

Clutch 10 was great!  Ended up with 1.1 dream bees, 1.2 orange dreams, 1.1 spiders, and 0.1 normal all possible het for albino.  Unfortunately there was a third dream bee that was deformed and died in the egg.

Not a bad way to start the year…

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

First clutch is finished hatching!  Ended up with 0.1 black pastel yellowbelly, 1.0 black pastel, 1.2 yellowbellies, and 2.0 normals.  Not too shabby, and I've got my first holdback for the year!

Vanilla update…

Thursday, December 29th, 2011

So here's the three "vanillas" I hatched out this year.  You can see the clutch picture a couple of posts back, or check out the clutch record at bp11-7.

Here's what the three vanillas look like now... the two on the side are what I'm generally used to seeing vanillas look like on the forums, and the one in the middle is the big question mark for me.  Is she 'just' a really nice vanilla or something more?  They are all possible het hypo, could it just be that she landed with the het hypo gene and it's showing through a bit?

 

Better odds, but not great…

Friday, August 26th, 2011

Clutch number five is out!  Didn't get as many normals in this clutch, but still missed out on the kingpin.  I'm thinking that lesser girl in the middle might be another hold back...

Well that’s some nice odds…

Sunday, June 19th, 2011

Clutch number two is out and not a single normal!  On top of that, this girl was only bred twice.  Once by a lesser and once by an enchi.  Hope that didn't use up all our luck for the year!

Just dinkin’ around…

Saturday, June 11th, 2011

First clutch is out!  Nothing super exciting, just a dinker clutch that may or may not be something...  We picked this girl up as a wild caught adult back when we first got into ball pythons and two of the hatchlings from her first clutch with us back in 2008 had something different about them.  I've never really successfully captured their look in a picture, but they were just cleaner and brighter looking than the others.  One of those hatchlings was a male and he was bred back to her for this clutch.  Is there something going on here?  I'm really not sure, but they are some interesting hatchlings regardless.  Next year I'll be putting our black pastel yellow belly male with her to see what happens when yellow belly gets thrown in with her genes.

This little guy died in the egg before he started absorbing any yolk, and he's probably the most normal looking of the clutch.

V18 size comparison…

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

I've had a few people ask me how big of a ball python could be kept in the V18 tubs.  I thought the best way to answer that question would be to take some pictures with different sized snakes in a tub!  For a size reference, the water dish in the tub is the same size as an 8 oz. deli cup.

This girl weighs 363 grams.

This guy weighs 523 grams.

This one weighs 925 grams.

And this girl weighs 1664 grams.

V18 hatchling rack…

Sunday, May 1st, 2011

Step 2 is complete on the new racks!  These are the shelves that the tubs will sit on.  Five tubs per shelf, eighteen levels, ninety tubs!  Shouldn't run out of room for hatchlings anytime soon.  Still waiting for the extruded aluminum that I'll be using for the frame to come in at work.  Should be here this next week I hope!

And so it begins…

Sunday, April 10th, 2011

My mission to build a proper hatchling rack has begun!  Sixty Vision V18 hatchling tubs arrived this weekend, and I've finished modeling the rack on the computer.  Now to get the material ordered up at work and put it together!

Albino spiders == yummy!

Saturday, October 2nd, 2010

This guy just had his first shed and he looks great!  He's a busy little bugger too, soon as I set him down on the table to shoot a picture he was off and running.  I'll have to get some more photos after he settles down a bit.

Best year and worst year all rolled into one…

Thursday, September 30th, 2010

We've had some really good luck with the ball pythons this year.  Unfortunately our black bloods not so much.  Starting off we only witnessed one copulation between the two groups we paired up.  Then it looked like things were turning around when I came home from lunch to find that one of the girls had laid a surprise clutch.  Now however, it turns out that only one hatchling from the clutch survived.  At this point I'm pretty sure the rest couldn't pip properly and ended up drowning in the eggs.  Turns out that first one didn't get its head out of the egg until day 66 of incubation.  Anyways, here's a picture of the one that made it...

Post shed paradox!

Sunday, August 22nd, 2010

The lesser paradox just had his first shed, and he looks spectacular!  Just finished adding him to the gallery, hit the image to see more of him!
