Re: New additions!

Both look great. A little over your intended budget but I think it's a good call. I like the colours on the pastel, he is nice and yellow still. What are the weights of the two snakes? With some luck you should be breeding within the next couple years.

Re: Morphs (males) under R3000

That would be a very good buy as the male is already up to weight from what I remember of the advert. This means that if your female already weighs 1500g+ you should be able to quarantine the new male (always advisable) whilst getting your female nicely built up and then start pairing them from abou...

Re: Morphs (males) under R3000

Even if you manage to start building your collection more than one snake a year, I would still suggest either getting a couple of hatchling normal females or a morph female for the R3000 that you have, that way, when you have more money and wish to start increasing your collection more, these female...

Re: Morphs (males) under R3000

If you are planning on building your collection slowly (1 snake per year), and depending on the weight of your single normal female currently, if I were in your situation I would consider getting a female morph this year as it will take about 2-3 years to get up to breeding size. I would then look a...

Re: Respiratory infection in Ball python

The best way I have found to combat the RI's is to increase you cage temps and keep the humidity at about 60%. The fluctuations in temps between day and night should try to be avoided as much as possible, keeping thermostats on you cage maintaining the cage between 32 on the hot side and about 30 co...

Re: BP Won't move out of cool spot

Then I don't think there is a problem with your ball. He is most likely spending his time on the cooler side because of the temperatures as a result of warm weather, once it cools down he will start moving between the warm and cool sides. All my ball pythons have been camping out on the cool side of...

Re: Alternative Treatment for R.I

Hey Colin Sorry, I wasn't implying that you didn't have the money to look after him, and trust me, I have done my fair share of looking for cheaper ways to sort these problems out. After spending almost R5000 on vet bills you will think that water costs a lot of money too. The slight wheeze and popp...

Re: Alternative Treatment for R.I

That F10 is what was given to us to use with the one snake that got sick. We just used a humidifier that heats the water and that worked well, we did look into cheaper methods and there are many, we wanted to be sure that should this happen again we were set up so as not to waste time. I assume it w...

Re: Second Clutch of the season 2012

Congrats! Hope the odds are in your favour.

The chances, statistically are 25% as both parents have co-dominant genes. However, what you actually will produce will remain a mystery until the eggs hatch. Good luck and I hope you manage to get the odds onto your side.

Re: Help with Baytirl, RI.

I had a similar thing happen with the power going off and one of my snakes got really sick as a result. After about three courses of anti-biotics and two stays in the "hospital" he is doing well, except he is now not eating and has diahorea, most likely as a result of all the antibiotics. ...

Re: Bird ID Please

Honestly, I would have gone with all you guys with the Reed cormorant. But my boss, Dr. Mark Brown who is an expert in the field of birds, after reading the post over my shoulder and seeing the pic said it was a white breasted cormorant so I would have to go with that. When I see him next I will bri...

Re: Bird ID Please

This is a juvenile White Breasted Cormorant. One can tell from the size and shape of the bird as well as the fact that it already has the white throat and the speckling on the breast is just a result of it being a juvenile.

Re: First clutch of the Season 2012

Thanks LAMB Pythons. Learn something new every day. Guess I assumed it was guilty by association, however, done some research now and see they can produce some really nice combinations. Not such a long process then, and no proving needed then but also not as much excitement or fun I can imagine. Sti...

Re: Ball Python Progress update

Yea, I would say he should be able to take a small weaner once a week now. He looks like he is big enough to handle it. Don't go up in siz too fast, I found with mine that going from mice to rats of similar size to a mouse generally works, and then increasing the size of the rat over a period of tim...
