Really pretty animals you have there. Just be careful you do not heat up the crestie while taking photos.

That carpet python is a stunner with a lovely sheen.

Thank you for the quick reply and kind words guys!

I will take the overheating into considderation.. Was a quick shoot though! Just took them all out for the natural light!

The blood python has calmed down allot.... but still dont trust him (Hence the hook). I DONT WANT TO GET BIT BY THIS GUY! He strikes with allot of force and a trip to the doc for stiches would be in order i think!

Funny enough, he had a shedding problem just the other day, as i was battling to keep up the humidity in hes cage, specially with the dry Gauteng/Northwest air... he let me handle him with no problem, even allowing me to take off the eye caps with short forceps.
After all the loose skin was off and i put him back into hes cage, he started hissing at me again... Go Figgure! Just wanted my help!

I must admit, its good to see a Blood Python instead of the usual ball pythons which are starting to be a bit clichéd at the moment!

Haha.. thanks Buck Rogers.

I love blood pythons. So badly want a pair of black Bloods!

Allot of international forums tell me that mine looks like a borneo instead of a "Red" (brongersmai). Richard from Creatures and Critters sold it to me as a Red. Beautiful animal none the less...

Funny you say that, I caught a 1 meter Brown House Snake that was also struggling to shed and this snake bit me every chance it got. Then when I tried to help him with the shedding he was as calm as can be and did not bite me once while I was busy, then made up for it as I put him away again.
But then when I released him again he was OK, only biting me once, so it does seem like they know.
