Re: Topic offshoot - Bitis Albanica faces extinction

I do not know for sure but I do believe that EWT (Endangered Wildlife Trust) managed to have a decent range of Albany thicket declared a protected area recently. They had also found adders within that area so there is a population there. I also believe that this a first for any snake species (having...

Re: Green Housie

Those are serious stripes. The house snake complex is so interesting and colour/pattern so diverse. I wonder what would happen if you bred the striped mentalis to a regular one?

Re: Green Housie

Yeah, those lineatus are just awesome. I hit a luck with my mentalis many years ago. Fooble bred some and I managed to get a few. I have never seen any since then for sale, I did manage to get a Northern cape locality House snake from Rolf at the expo in December which is close but much much darker.

Re: Green Housie

wow that is cool. I have a group of typical CB mentalis but have never seen ones like that striped one. It is very much like a lineatus.

I am also going top apologize for hijacking, but is mentalis now a separate species or is the term just been coined for a different color phase?

Re: Green Housie

Those are beautiful Ian, I have a few as well and they get better looking with every shed.

Westley do you have a picture of a Striped Namaqualand house snake by any chance? Just would be interesting to see what they look like.

Re: Aspidalaps lubricus

Here is the rest of them, I see what you mean with regards to the differences between the two subspecies. It has been very interesting seeing how the markings and colour has developed as they have grown though. My photography is so sketchy lol. They look very different in the photos. 5 http://www.sa...

Re: Aspidalaps lubricus

Haha! Thanks Westley. I will try and find some photos of them as hatchlings as they were all identical and all looked like cowlesi. Some have colored up unbelievably over the last year. The male is actually quite dull compared t o most of his offspring but I still have four more young ones to take s...

Re: Aspidalaps lubricus

Just going to carry on from this post as it seems to make sense. The above male which most people including myself decided was an inter-grade between lubricus and cowlesi (which happens naturally) I eventually decided to pair him up with a cowlesi female. I held back all the offspring which are now ...

Re: Rats and Rabbits

How big is a piglet Sico? I have 4 Carpet pythons and a couple of Boa's all around the 5-6 feet mark. Pardon my ignorance but I have never used them before. I am willing to give them a go though. The rats I will need for my Cobras, Tree snakes and smaller pythons though.

Rats and Rabbits

Good morning

Does anybody know anyone that sells and ships frozen rats and rabbits. I am based in a small town in Zululand and just do not have the space to breed my own.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you
