Olive House Snakes Locked

Postby jka » Thu Aug 21, 2014 8:07 pm

I introduce my male and female Olive housies. (Lamprophis inornatus) with in literally seconds they were locked, the guy must be a natural.

I got the male as a adult and the female i raised as a baby.

Lycodonomorphus inornatus these days ;)

Nice stuff man. Are the Western Cape locality?

Fingers crossed for many more locks and a bunch of eggs!

I'm not really sure on locality, they pair is suppose to be captives.

I won't be calling them Ground snakes anytime soon.

Either way I'm really stoked, my previous female was a real pain to deal with hoping this girl gives me some eggs and if I'm lucky she won't chow the little dude.

Have your snakes been exposed to reality television ?
Nice, hope they deliver.

Awesome stuff Rian, you don't see too many Olives being bred.

What happened to your stumpie tailed male?

Wow. They've got some stamina. ;) I noticed there's no hand clapping emoticon so the smug looking winkey face will have to do. All the fun happens when I'm not in Oudtshoorn.

Best to get him out of there when they break up. Females are notorious for eating males.

Nice! Good to see that female will be breeding second generation captives. Lekker right.

That was my biggest concern! Hope i didn't bother them to much. I split them just after I noticed they weren't locked anymore.
