Eish sly, why not rather try get a male green house snake, and keep the bloodlines clean. Never heard about a Zambian green housesnake, sounds interesting...

Open them in ms paint, type ctrl+w and enter resize percentages according to the size of the original. The resized image should measure about 15cm x 15cm. Then save it under an altered name and upload that.

I have seen these green ones from Burundi and Rwanda as well. Which species they are is anyones guess till the final papers on them are published.

If anything comes from the breeding of these two species then please do not allow any to escape or get released.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Yes BV, i'm not to sure of the classification of this green female but i suppose the juvies will tell a story of there own, could be hybrid or maybe even different colour morph of Lam. Ful. I don't know but none will be released at any stage. Also i didn't have a male of the same species to use but have seen them around.

Sly where did you get that green house snake. Looks very cool.
Honestly BV, I doubt that anything will come of this. I have never heard of a hybrid between the two of them. the amiricans would have done this by now if it were that simple...

I hear you, but no harm in trying i suppose. I honesty believe that House Snakes are the most underated snakes in the world. We have all the resources and stock in Africa in terms of colour morphs and new bloodlines to do something new and different. Why wait on the Americans.

Don't get me wrong i appreciate and respect what breeders like Bob Clark has done with Pythons, and kathy Love has done with Corns and The Sutherlands have done with Ball Pythons.

My grip on things is let a few of our breeders step up to the plate. :shock:

Sly, why not?
Just don't let a hybrid out into the wild, everything will be fine!
So where did you get the green snake? Never seen one before!

I bought this female in Jan 07 and have had her in quarantine for 6 months. I will post pic's of the seven eggs she laid in Oct 07 as they should be hatching in the next 3 weeks.
