Congratz man, I want some this year.
If I'm gonna be an old, lonely man, I'm gonna need a thing, you know, a hook, like that guy on the subway who eats his own face. So I figure I'll be Crazy Man with a Snake, y'know. Crazy Snake Man. And I'll get more snakes, call them my babies, kids won't walk past my place, they will run. "Run away from Crazy Snake Man, " they'll shout!”

Thanks guys !

Nzyme, I've also read and herd that they aren't easy to breed but in my opinion they are one of the easiest Asian rat snakes to breed. This will be the second year that I breed them so holding thumbs for some more stunning little pointy worms :)

Louis.

Very nice! Hopefully you'll sell some babies again this year. I promised myself I won't pass up the next opportunity to buy a pair :D

Are you planning for 3 clutches againthis year?
I don't want to miss out like I did earlier this year on account of my poor planning.
Good luck, can't wait to see the little ones.

Also did you hold back any of the previous clutches, I would love to see some pics if you did?
