THE VPI DIARY

I'm in heaven now! It has been a long wait for these guys! At least five years from acquiring the original male, settling him in, breeding him to make hets, raising the hets and breeding them to see these hatch this past week.

This is exciting! Our first Caramel Albino Sumatran Short Tail Python Python curtus that we ever hatched now on eggs! She was bred to the unrelated WC male. This female laid 9 her first clutch! She has always been one of my favorites with her beautiful head color. The disposition of these snakes is awesome and they are just a pleasure to maintain.

I was waiting for these-from one of my favorite females. Her pattern is bold perfection and these babies do not disappoint! These all look great! One slug and 14 babies! I sweated this one big time. But I took my own advice and remained calm. Here is the story:

This is one of my dream snakes. She is just amazing. What makes her so amazing to me? 1) white head 2) dark red color that appears not to have any yellow in it 3) what appears to be a "motley" pattern similar to the "motley" boa or cornsnake. I'm hoping that the absence of yellow is yet another hint-as the motley boa is a rather "axanthic" looking snake. First we have to get good eggs....a girl can dream can't she?!
