Re: Reptile & Mammal Keeper Wanted

And here I was thinking I was being a nice Assistant... So much for that idea.
Just walk to the Snake Room and have a look in the incubator and you will forgive me. ;)

Re: Chat room

Actually it is a Southern African Python. So it is the second largest constrictor in Africa. They could be problematic if you have small pets, but other than that they will keep well out of your way.

Re: Any advice on handling my Green Tree pythons

and a Sarong type female that seems to love it. Greggo13, source yourself a Sorong locality Chondro. My male Sorong is also completely unphased by handling. An old aquaintance of mine also has a Sorong locality male which seems to rather enjoy the chance to "explore". I realise that it is...

Re: Crotalus vegrandis
