01/07/16 VPI BOAS 2016

Quick pic for today! The VPI Snowglow and VPI Snow are among my absolute favorite Boa morphs.

This is a long ongoing project and includes multiple generations of captive breeding all done here at VPI.

When you think the odds of getting them are 1/32 for a "t snowglow" and 1/16 for a "t snow" you know when you see one of them it is a lucky day!!

01/04/16 HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL!! WELCOME TO VPI 2.0!!

Happy New Year to all! 

If you like Ball Pythons, Blood Pythons, Black Sumatran Pythons, Borneo Pythons, and Boas stay tuned!

08/17/15 BALL PYTHONS: The History, Natural History, Care, and Breeding Barker and Barker (2006)

It is that time of year, Ball python hatching time! We want you to have the best information out there to know all about this species, their history in the wild and captivity, biology, reproduction, husbandry, breeding, incubation, and health.

If you haven't had a chance to see our book here is some info. We think every Ball python fan and owner should have this book on his/her bookshelf!

08/12/2015 VPI WROUGHT IRONS PYTHON BRONGERSMAI

Its hard to believe you can breed this morph to a normal and make more of them! Its just too crazy! But that is what this incomplete dominant morph does and when the eggs start hatching you just go, wow, this egg has a normal...this egg has a Wrought Iron!
