Finally some confirmation that they are in the country!

Those look gorgeous, a lot more pink (or peachy) that I would expect.

Hopefully there are some males too so we can have a load of hets in the next few years!

Congrats on the new additions guys!

Westley I know it does not make sense but I sold the male and kept the female. We do have an agreement to pair them up when they are big. I did keep two hets as well as backup. It was a bit expensive to keep both albinos. Would have been just over R100 000 invested. Too risky for me.

Wow, just look at that pink!

Gorgeous Mitton. Thanx for sharing.

I guess one can expect the colour change if you look at how much normals change with age.

I look forward to more pics in the future to follow this change.

They are so beautiful. Those faces are too cute for words. You must be as happy as a kid on Christmas morning Arno! It has always been my dream to take part in a breeding programme for endangered reptiles. It's a pity it's not something a person can just go ahead and do. It must be a great feeling to help repopulate an area with animals that are now non-existent in that area.

Oh well - we can always dream can't we?

Those pythons are difinitely not endangered Marion. Rare outside of Australia but very well protected in their country of origin.

Beautiful Albino you have! I think Albinos are one of the best looking reptile morphs out there.

Hi Carpetpython

Sorry you misunderstood. I didn't actually mean that the snakes Arno brought in, were endangered, I was just dreaming out loud.

I would love to be involved in breeding endangered species here in SA. Not snakes particularly but perhaps lizards, frogs, toads etc? I would love to keep African Bullfrogs for instance - if space allowed, and set up some sort of breeding programme to increase their numbers. Many of our lizards and chameleons are rare as well.

I am of the firm opinion that sooner or later we will only be able to see some of our reptiles in zoos and snake parks. With the attitude that a lot of people have, one day there just won't be any of them left in the wild for us to see.

It's just a dream, but then we can all dream, can't we?
