A rare & beautiful snake, it bares a striking resemblance in posture to Python regius, but behaves completely different.

Stunning snake, stunning pics.
Is that just in the garden or is it a type of photo studio you built?

Yes these snakes are captive bred. Nobody bothers with wild caught ones anymore. The captive bred ones breed quite easily but unlike poor slangman who lost his female after they had mated.

Emerald reptiles had one for sale on their website some time ago R50 000. From the online pic it looked like a hatchling or just a bid older

Amazing snakes and cool pics mate . Their character is so different to royals as you mentioned . I find them to be very inquisitive snakes by nature .
Thanks for the mention bushviper ! I did indeed loose my 7yr old female this season whilst she was laying eggs . Its a sad loss but I recon its better to have lost than not have had them at all .
I still have a super nosey male to play with and perhaps in the future , I will get another lady for him .... Now off to purchase another euro lottery ticket ! Wonder what will be first on the purchase list should I win the 166 million pound ?
Thanks again for posting those pics of these awesome snakes

Just saw this now, and must say WOW. The pictures in my snake book are not as nice as these. Do these need any permits or anything considering they are on CITES? And do we need any permits for them because they reside in Namibia, Angola et cetera or are they considered exotic? I know this is thread is old but I mean WOW

These are not classified as indigenous and no special permits are required in most provinces (Cape ones excluded). There might be some available in April or may this year. They will not be near the 50 grand though and are guaranteed captive bred with CITES permits if required. The importer will possibly advertise them when they land.
