Re: January/February Kwa-Zulu Natal [Photo HEAVY]

Second Westley on the D. medici, but really dig the Common Purple Gloss and the Decoster's Garter. Amazing pics as always Mr T!

Re: New Babies

Hey Roland, I had many moons ago, and as with all the bigger boys and girls, with regular handling they become used to it, although again, some just never get the idea. The light male does not like being picked up, and has lashed out at me once or twice, but it's understandable considering their pre...

Re: New Babies

Westley, So after a lot of research, and a lot of questions, I am absolutely nowhere closer to their lineage. The parents of both litters were rescues, so genetically, they could be anything or nothing at all. Someone also did mention that the lighter ones could be Key West babies, but I will have t...

Dasypeltis inornata Eating from Hand

Well, a good friend asked to see a video of my larger Southern Brown Egg eater eating a chicken egg, and thought I'd put it up here for others as well. Sadly, my camera died half way, but it took the snake around 5-10 minutes from starting to swallow, right until it regurged the remaining shell. I o...

Re: New Babies

Thanks Roland, a few years before they grow up, and so looking forward to it. Westley, that would make them intergrades then? If the theory holds... I have requested pics of the parents, and will upload them when I get them. Reptile, you took the words right out of my mouth... In the meantime, here ...

New Babies

Well, after a drought of about 9 years without any boas, I finally decided to get back into the game with them, and managed to land two lovely little related pairs. The parents I saw in person. There were two unrelated mothers (a dark looking normal, and a lovely light caramel biscuit color mother),...

Re: Babies for Africa

So, after feeding (some unscented from the go) and everyone shedding nice and cleanly, here are update photos of all the cbb babies, in no particular order... 16 http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/p203/kourier/Rinkhals%202016/CBB%20Babies%20Post%20First%20Shed/16_zpsgwxiqhkn.jpg 15 http://i129.photo...

Re: Babies for Africa

Thanks Westley. Hopefully next season will be even bigger than this one! Hopefully I have it down now, and can try and start producing regularly. That's the dream. All of them have shed now, so I have to sex them, weigh them, and catalogue them now. And then the big question... Will they feed... Alt...

Re: Babies for Africa

Roalnd, Thanks man, although there is no way to really convey in words how hot it is digging out a termite mound in the blazing African sun, carefully (and slowly) so as not to hurt the occupants. In this instance, I didn't have a problem destroying the mound, as they do not want the snakes to retur...

Babies for Africa

So 2015 ended in a huge bang for me! I got a call out, around Christmas for some small snakes in a hole, at one of my regular clients. Grabbed the necessary equipment, and headed out there, expecting to find a few Night Adders. Getting there, they led me to an old underground termite mound (those re...
