Almost 6 years old and still as beautiful as ever. Male from page 1 of this thread.

And the male that is a baby on page 5 of this thread.

And then a female I kept back from the clutch on page 10, she is about to drop her first clutch, bred to the first male.

Awesome looking snakes, that first pic is almost hypnotic.

Those are some stunning Carpet pythons. Nobody can doubt if they are jungles.

That golden male is a real stunner.

Do you have any specific line-breeding project going to produce jet black and golden Jungles?

Great snakes. Congrats

Thanks guys.

Westley, the first male usually produces awesome banded babies, even with my stripped female did I get a few nicely banded babies. So he mated with his banded daughter to hopefully produce perfectly banded babies, will see in about 2.5 months.

Wow Eugene!

That's the nicest Jungle I've seen in SA, it looks like some of the very nice ones available in the States.

It is such a great feeling to be able to hatch a baby, feed it and raise it and then one day breed it.

This is the female I hatched 2009 and this morning had her first clutch, looked like 19 perfect eggs, no duds. I am very excited to see what her babies look like.

I also had another clutch the day before, 16 good eggs and 2 duds.

Congrats Eugene! I can't believe how plump your female looks, even after dropping the load of eggs!

Are all those eggs from normal Jungle sires, or are there some morphs in the mix?

Believe me, they are super skinny after they drop the eggs.
It is one of the best and worst experiences ever, getting eggs is great, taking them away from the female and her searching for them sucks, breaks my heart every time.

These are just Jungle to Jungle, this female had the nice banded male on her and the other female had the highlighter yellow male on her.
Hopefully there will be some morph eggs soon.

Some nice looking cluches you got there Mitton. Yours are some of the best looking classic Jungles in SA!

All my Jungle eggs hatched in December, of the 35 eggs 34 hatched.

Here are a few pics of the babies from the banded female on her eggs in the pics above and the banded male. All the babies are banded.
