04/17/15 MARRON AND SUPER MARRON BOAS

I really wanted to see and have born a super Marron, and as luck would have it, I got just one! Hoping to see more with a second chance this summer, but I'm happy to see this one male super and his really nice Marron brother that was born with him! There is no mistaking a super Marron, they are very unique! All dark eyes, unique pattern, and true to its name a deep red color!

04/06/15 Well today was a great surprise!

When something totally unexpected happens when it comes to working with animals it's never surprising. That's the cool thing about working with them, you learn every day. Even after 25 plus years you learn. Frankly I think we are at day one in terms of what we potentially will learn about the particular group of animals we have been working with Boas and pythons.

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.
