Hatchling season almost complete, this year was amazing! I actually ran out of space and needed to order new hatchling racks to house all my new babies. Had some huge surprises, as well as some huge disapointments. Which all turn out fine in the end, I always think about the dissapointments as something else to look forward to in the future.

Recently hatched 4 eggs from a lavender albino X het lavender albino. My first two clutches of this season should have had lavender albinos (clutch records), now I know were they went! All four were lavender albino's this time :-)

Checked the rodents this morning, I am having a difficult rat season. I thought it was because of the heat, well found out a majority of my sippers were clogged and the rodents have been drinking just enough water to look fine, but not enough to reproduce. Dummy me, again!

Extremely Best  Regards Marc"

Thank you Marc! Enjoy those beauties :-)

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.


Freedom Breeder just had a 4th of July sale on a compact FB70 line rack for $800 shipping included. I simply had to snatch one up after a quick 2 seconds of consideration. Pretty sure I can find some females to fill it up rather quickly. I hope to upload some pick's when it arrives. All my Freedom Breeders are more than 10 years old, so this will be a nice thrill to set up a new rack once again :-)

Until next time, take care...

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!

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?

Took this shot today, I still think caramel albinos are breath-taking animals. This is an adult male Bell Line Caramel Albino.
