THE VPI DIARY

04/04/15 Day 104 post shed

This is a combination blog from May 1st last year and now, in case you missed the earlier entry just to get up to speed on one of our favorite Boa projects.

01/11/15 IVORY MORPH PYTHON BRONGERSMAI

VPI named the "Ivory" Blood python morph after it was proven as the "super" form of the VPI Matrix. We are really proud of this project because it represents a perfect example of our original goal: to produce all captive bred and hatched animals that are easily identified as not being removed from the wild.  In fact, at this time we are thrilled that after what must be considered a very short time, private breeders working on multiple projects with Python brongersmai, have absolutely become successful at maintaining and breeding this species in captivity.

01/01/15 HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Happy new year to all.

We couldn't be happier that 2015 has arrived!

Look for good things this year!!

Look for great things this year!!

In with the positive!!

Tracy and Dave

12/28/14 LAVENDER SNOW CLOWN PIEBALD PYTHON REGIUS PROJECT OF THE FUTURE

Even though I'm designating 2015 as "The Year of the Blood Python," for our Ball python fans fear not, we are working on Ball python projects and bringing some amazing ones together!

Combining just a few of our favorite morphs, some originating here at VPI after a huge amount of work we are able to offer you the maximum short cut! Here we show our progress integrating the Lavender Albino, VPI Axanthic, Clown, and Piebald genes. Of course these are all recessive and we have more work to do!

12/25/14 PART 2

Here is a second, third, and fourth baby of the new VPI Python brongersmai morph. This is not a combination

morph it is a unique morph on its own with nothing added (but they are also 100% het for Red Albino).

12/25/14 MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!

It probably seems like we have fallen off the snake planet as another 6 months have flown by!

As I wrote 6 months ago "nothing could be further from the truth, in fact we have all kinds of cool projects going on that we are really excited about!! These include Ball pythons, Blood pythons, Short Tail Pythons, and Boas!"

We have been writing away, including working on finishing a book on Indonesian pythons, articles and chapters on all manner of snakes, and no matter what happens next in line is the Blood python book!

2015 is going to be the big year for VPI! 

06/19/14

It probably seems like we have fallen off the snake planet while we have been working on The Invisible Ark book project!

Nothing could be further from the truth, in fact we have all kinds of cool projects going on that we are really excited about!!

These include Ball pythons, Blood pythons, Short Tail Pythons, and Boas!

It is hard to think about this coming year, I am still loving what we had this past season. Actually, we don't even have a "year" or a "season" anymore, everything is just running along month by month now.

06/10/14

Our 24th anniversary today. Wow I looked a lot younger 24 years ago, Dave hasn't aged at all!

It seems impossible, but having our son Tom just finishing his first year in college and our son Guy now a senior in high school tells me it is possible!

This has been a few crazy weeks! First finally getting the next printing of "The Invisible Ark" done, then Dave was first at Snake Days in west Texas, and onto the "Pit Viper Symposium" in Tulsa, while the boys were really having a blast at the X games in Austin!

06/02/14 VPI Pastel Fire Axanthic Python regius

In ball pythons, the VPI Axanthic morph continues to offer up some incredible combinations and this is one of my favorites! 

This awesome female, what I believe to be the first of this combination was produced by Wes Harris.

The contrast and outlines on the blotches of this snake are outstanding!

Now I'm going to add the VPI Sugar Axanthic to make VPI Pastel Fire Axanthic Sugar and we are still at

VPI Axanthics day one!!!!!
