06/26/13 VPI CARAMEL ALBINO BLACK SUMATRAN PYTHONS PYTHON CURTUS 2013

 

I have a lot of "favorite" projects, and this is one of them! If there was ever a candidate for "best pet snake" this is one of them!

They are a dream. Great size, Great attitude, Great feeders, Great breeders. These snakes have "perfect" written all over them!

The wild type is such a nice contrast of colors to the Caramel Albino form, that having both normals and albinos is cool.

There appears to be a genetic basis to head color. In the normal animals you can get a dark head or a bright orange head and in the

Caramel Albinos you can get a tan head and an orange head. Pattern wise we see some good potential for development. We have seen   

reverse striping and thick, very cool banding.
