Well, you can always tell when hatchling season arrives. Facebook starts blowing up with outstanding clutch shots & hatchling photos. Lots of amazing ball python creations being produced right now. Very exciting times! If you are lucky, you can also witness some nice catfights and hissyfits over this that and the other thing. Reality & drama posts are also so much fun to read! Can't wait so see who goes toe to toe this season, lol.
I was contacted recently by my good friends from The Southern Nevada Herp. Society to present a Ball Python Lecture, at the end of summer. I'm really looking forward to get out into public again, maybe I'll take a few goodies to show and a nice raffle item as well, more details coming soon!
Hatchling update: My first two clutches of this season have pipped. The babies are just sitting in the eggs sucking up all the remaining nutrients before they are ready to explore. This is going to be the start of a record breaking season for me. I had to order new hatchling racks, and can't even remember the last time I got a new rack, the anticipation is so exciting! The 2013 Hatchling photo page will be up in the middle of July-ish? Cheers!
Wow, been a brutal start to my 2013 hatching season.
I bred a double het Lavender Pied to a Pied Poss. Het Lavender: 1 Pied & 4 Hets (no Lavenders!)
Second clutch was a Lavender to Pastel Het Lavender: 3 Pastels Het Lavs & 4 Het Lavenders (no lavenders!)
Ball Pythons Wanted: If anyone looking for trades, I am in need of lesser, candy & ultramel visuals. My available animals for trade are listed in my BP Pricelist Page. Thanks :-)
Green Ghost with het daughter, I believe this is one of they key elements needed to create a blue ball. Think about it, mixing blue & yellow make green, well why not take the yellow away, what's left?
100F + from now on here in Las Vegas. Good thing I installed a new swamp cooler in the reptile room, it's holding a flat 88F so I can shelf incubate all my eggs also :-)
Check out my new page 2013 Clutch Records! Until now, I have never been able to show much of my clutch information, now you get to see it all, females, eggs, and group shot after their first sheds, Hope you enjoy!
Very long work day today... just wrapping up an email to my good buddy Marc and finished with this sentence, "Thanks again for emailing Marc, I just checked on the snows for you and found another snow female layed a surprise clutch bred to a snow male :-) Thought I was going finish up the emails, take a shower and hit the bed, guess not?" Nice! ;-)
Oh, my..... I just checked all my gravid (pregnant) female ball pythons and June is going to be a very nice laying month, I think I just may have those chubby eggs coming out of my ears by the end of next month, and that's a good thing!
Wow, working on this site all evening and searched my name in the BOI from the faunaclassifieds. I was floored to find so many wonderful testimonals that go back many years. I am so touched by all the kind words, and would like to say thank you! You guys & gals are the best!
