Been a while

Postby Deon » Thu May 30, 2013 8:04 am

Hi Everyone,

Well it has been a while since I had a look at this site, but my eldest son recently twisted my arm into getting snakes again. Yes I am happy he did. :-)

So we have been in OZ for over 3 years now and how time has flown. Anyway our collection in the last month has gone from nothing to 3 x Albino Darwin and a 3 year old pair of Bredli (red not classic)

What I have found interesting is the price of reptile food... I went to my local Pet supplier to buy some pinkie rats for the one Albino Darwin. $28.80 for 10, yip about R280.00 for 10 rat pinkies. Large rats are up to about $15.00

There are a couple of companies that breed and supply. I have found a "supplier" that can supply me large rats at $7.00 and pinkies at $1.00, so much better than my local pet store. It has just become legal for pet stores to sell certain reptiles in NSW, so I guess they are trying to make the best of it. :-)

Keep well and I will post some pics soon.
Cheers
Deon

Was wondering when we would see you again, welcome back.

That sounds like a nice collection you started, now all we need is pics.

You can have all these snakes that we cant ..... but we have the food. Swings and roundabouts?

Take pictures of the snakes and post them here.
