SNAKES SNAKES SNAKES #1
Are there any snake keepers that use the forum?

If so jump in and tell us what you keep and your experiences. Maybe some members will benefit from extra knowledge and branch out into reptiles or any of you snake/reptile keepers will learn more or help others with your skills.
Don't be shy, I guarantee i'm not the only snake/reptile person here.

Re: SNAKES SNAKES SNAKES #2
yep i keep a per of corn snakes ive had them for quite a few years and bread them successfully a couple of times proper escape artists and love a good soak so supply them with a large enough bowl to submerge themselves fully i fines a nice abrasive rock helps them shed nicely and a good flat rock under there basking lamp never use heat rocks or heat mats as they can course serious burns to your snakes and always cage spot lamps these guys have a tendency to wrap themselves around the lamp at times their not the brightest in the bunch

Re: SNAKES SNAKES SNAKES #3
Some good advise there!

Gwa does this mean the cichlid keepers are more likely to have snakes or is just you and I?

Re: SNAKES SNAKES SNAKES #7
No reptiles here any more, but many moons ago I had a Dice Snake and an Indian Python, plus 2 Curly Tail Lizards, 2 Wall Lizards, 5 Green Anoles and a Tokay Gecko. The Tokay was called E.T, so you can guess from that when it was

I have a few. These are my latest two additions, Ben and Jerry. They are 10 week old captive bred Jayapura green tree pythons that I picked up just two weeks ago from a London Zoo vetenary nurse funnily enough.

The two are only together as this is how they were purchased from the breeder.

A couple of random shots of a female sub adult Biak GTP (Helena). She has the most sterotypical Biak temperament known to man!

I'm working in the fish / rep room all day tomorrow so may take a few pics of my others. I'm trying to produce an albino striped Sinaloan milk snake next year by crossing an albino female with a striped male. I also have a few other colubrids, boas and pythons etc.

Designer chondros are what I want to be producing in years to come, but I'm under no illusions this will take a few years. I do hope to import some animals from Bob Kelly this year, but we'll see if he himself has much success!

Along with most UK GTP keepers I'm keeping an eye on his Ella Diablo x Mr Black pairing. Neonates from his Flowers x Pastel pairing will be winging their way across the Atlantic in a few weeks!

They look like this...

Re: SNAKES SNAKES SNAKES #10
Doh! Didn't scroll down to Noodle's post before editing! Oh well, double trouble. They look good though, love the way they sit on their branches all folded up

Edit: forgot to ask ... How are you getting on with their feeding? And you have 'approval' for the US ones then?
