Re: A New Project (Hopefully)

Yes it is a male, and I have a sibling female that I will put him to, and see what happens. The mother is so old, she ahs been permanently retired from breeding now. She is turning black all over, and only eats fuzzy mice, or smaller now...

Re: A personal Favorite of Mine

I keep him at the local temps... Hot spot up to 34-36 during summer, ambient temps across the cage are around 26-30 from cool to warm side, and temps off during winter with no feeding. Where he comes from it is exceptionally hot during the summers. He is just coming out of quarantine, so he will be ...

Re: A personal Favorite of Mine

Thanks Gareth, I've always had a soft spot for these chaps, their attitude and character are so awesome, and a great way for newbies to get a feel for handling some of the more advanced species.

Thanks Emerald, I'll pass the compliment on when I feed him today.

A personal Favorite of Mine

Just thought I'd throw this chap in here for the heck of it. Shed yesterday, and is coming out of quarantine this weekend, and going to his new, bigger and more furnished home... http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/p203/kourier/MAINDESIGN-PC/16%20March%202016%20Various%20photos/16%20March%202016/Mole...

Re: Babies for Africa

Well, it's been a while since I updated. Some of the babies didn't make it, as they are wont to do, seeing as they are not the easiest species to get onto mice. Scenting worked for the majority of them, some of them took straight off the bat, and others have had to be "helped" along. So fa...

Jungle Jag and Sibling

Well, after a deal gone south with my coastal carpets, and getting a bit of a sore tooth about the Morelia spp., I was lured into temptation by vuduman at the 2015 December Expo in Durban, and bought a pair of his carpet offspring. I can honestly say that I am not disappointed. Jungle Jag female htt...

Various Boaedon

Cleaning and feeding last night and snapped a few quick shots of some of the many house snakes that I have in my zoo. First off some Hybinos. I never remember if they are T+ or T- (They have the red eyes). These are little progenies from Rolf Dennison, and I have a particular liking for the striping...

Re: A New Project (Hopefully)

I apologize to everyone for not updating sooner! Completely forgot about this thread! :oops: Snapped a quick shot of the light one last night, and I will let the picture speak for itself. I will take some photos tonight upload a group shot of the 3 together again. http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/...

Re: Babies for Africa

Thanks Roland, these are my two keepers from the litter. Have big plans for them.

Arno, that is the plan, I hope these two are a pair, otherwise, at least a mate for my clean belly yellow male. I can only imagine what I would like to have pop out of these.

Re: New Babies

Two of the little babies shed this week, so I decided to try an impromptu photoshoot quickly. I think it went alright. Much easier than working with little children, and most adults actually... Without further ado, some weekend exotic eye candy... Normal Male http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/p203/...

Re: Babies for Africa

So, another special female dropped for me, and I have been undecided whether to put any of the pics up here just yet. This is a long term project that is hopefully starting to bear fruit. I have been fascinated by Rinkhals since I got my first one many moons ago, and have been slowly working on coll...

Re: Not A Reptile

Roland, those pincers are used during the nymph stage of their life cycle underground. They spend years (2 - 17, species dependent) underground, before coming up, and changing into their adult forms.

This website has some detailed info on them for you : http://www.cicadamania.com/
