Snake eating blue headed lizard in Stellenbosch

Friend of mine was cycling yesterday and came across this snake eating a blue headed lizard near Stellenbosch mountain yesterday. My knee jerk reaction was this it is a tabak rolletjie, but on closer inspection of the higher resolution photos I received today I'm leaning more toward a less common co...

determine sex of yearlings

Hey guys,

Is it OK to sex a yearling? it just seems a bit early in live, also could you harm or hurt the animal doing it? Which technique do you use?

Re: Juvinile corn

My Snow female used to shake her tail (rattle) every time I opened her enclosure, she calmed down after about a month of handling, she was about 6 months at the time. On the other hand my one male is so calm that when he is fed he will always take his feed gently when fed and pull a little on it unt...

The tail looked fine at the time but last night it seems...

Re: Need I.D Cornsnake Morph.

Chantal, Your snakes are stunning! I'm thinking one could have a new name for almost every color morph you have there, maybe we should just stick to classifying a morph as beautiful, nice or not :) @mailjvdb: Considering all that has been said here and Chantel's photo I would say that you have a Ame...

Re: Need I.D Cornsnake Morph.

Normal Okeetee has well defines black areas around the saddles.

I'm unclear on reverse Okeetee vs Albino (though albino was without pigment)

Amel doesn't have the white areas around the saddles.

Re: Need I.D Cornsnake Morph.

How did you "find" it?

And who neglects such a beautiful animal? Last week I saw a albino Burmese python that got burnt by an a open light bulb, I got so mad! luckily he is in good hands now.

Does look like reverse Okeetee.

Hope he brings you lots of joy.

Re: My second clutch

They look really wet, I wouldn't spray any water directly on the eggs, if you vermiculite was mixed correctly (1:1 in WEIGHT NOT VOLUME) and your "egg box" has no breathing holes, there should be no need to mist the eggs at all. Point taken, my mix was 1:1 in approx weight when I put it i...
