THE VPI DIARY

10/12/18 PART 1 UPDATE 2018 BLOOD PYTHONS AT VPI!

If you are looking for Blood pythons from VPI, this is the year!! I am so excited about the babies we have hatched!

Our season was very early and almost all of our babies are already super well started!

We learned some pretty cool facts this year!

#1 The Magpie, is the "super" of the incomplete dominant Golden Eye. Not that we doubted it...but seeing the results makes it absolutely a fact that a Magpie is a very powerful, as well as a beautiful morph! We bred a Magpie x Ivory and produced ALL 007's and they are amazing looking!

10/12/18 UPDATE 2018 BOAS AT VPI!

After many years waiting, this year has been great on the results front for some long, but fun Boa projects!

We could not be happier with our 2018 babies from just a few really special litters!

It's like a dream!!

IMG X MOTLEY LITTER

Well I really underestimated this combo!! Wow these are so beautiful. But then again how could you go wrong with IMG and Motley,

these are rainbow city!

03/14/18 BALL PYTHONS, BLOOD PYTHONS, BOAS AT VPI!

We are working away and things are going really early this year! We are a mere 3 weeks away from our first Ball pythons hatching and our last females are ovulating. The Blood pythons are ovulating and starting to go in their nest boxes, and the Boas are almost finished their ovulations, so that means 120 days and counting until babies!

Here are some pics of what has been going on during this 2018 season!
