Interesting developments in Philippines

Postby Vrakkie » Tue Apr 07, 2015 5:27 pm

Hi there collectors

Am not sure but this might be old news to some experts, and some might even be trying this already.
This is the new crazy bug that is starting to bite in the Philippines.
Something I am trying to get my hands on. (currently going for about US$2100 hatchling)

Reticulated Python x Burmese (Bee eater)
Now busy experimenting crossing the retic with the albino burm

This hybrid has been on the market for quite some name and the name is actually Bat Eater, not a Bee Eater.

There are also numerous morphs of Bat Eater available, including albino

There are also Cat Eaters on the market which are Burm x Afrocs and then there are the Burmball hybrids. Most people are not fond of the idea of hybrids, but there are a few guys trying ti out locally, although I doubt there would be a good market for the offspring.

I think its the way to go. Seeing retics are not invasive and Burmese are(god only knows why). I reckon its the way to go. I would like to know the legal status of hybrids? Anyone of the experts who did the intensive study on which snakes classify as invasive species out there to answer?

Any hybrid with an Alien invasive species is then regarded to be potentially invasive and may not be owned as they are prohibited.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.
