Congrats dude, that looks amazing. Are the 3 snakes you posted today wild-caught?

Thanks guys...

Haha...Wade, the mandarins are 100% captive bred (They used to belong to Westley). They flying snake is definitely wild caught and the tanahjampea cat snakes are long term captives from Switzerland.

Louis, you make us all jealous! I remember seeing a few wild caught ones years ago, I don’t think any of them lasted too long in captivity. I assume these being captive bred are much easier to maintain? How difficult is their husbandry? Keep me in mind when you breed, they have been on my wish list for years! :D
And yes please post lots of pictures, I can’t wait to see more!

Looking good, Louis!

I always found they were difficult to photograph because they are so shiny, haha.

Such nice snakes and also easy to keep if their very basic requirements are met. Well done.

Thanks guys !

These are really not hard to care for if you get quality cb animals. I keep them on a mix of sphagnum and soil with a moist hide and I spray them every three or so days. I think the most important thing with these is to keep them in a cool room (mine rarely reaches 26*C). They'll also eat whatever the other snakes didn't haha...

I'll post some more pics for you guys asap... ;)

Lekker Louis.

I'm glad they're doing well and I cannot wait for you to be the first to breed these in RSA!

Enough of the WC rubbish around, time for CB.

How about a few pictures of you holding them just to get an idea how much they've grown?
