One of my favourite species. What is it feeding one? Congrats.

Nice. I grew up with them around the farm house. Great work.

lucky one. In my region there are only 2 species of snakes available. And you have to search them, quite a few month :shock:

Nice. Did you breed them and were the parents feeding on pinks as well.

Another question.

Are cb heralds readily available there?

Wow, lovely looking snake. They've got alot of character and make awesome captives.
Best of luck with the little fellow, I look forward to seeing more pictures as it grows up.


Ps, whereabouts are you based in the world? CB Heralds aren't common here, but they're possibly one of the most common finds whilst out herping.
I Would love to see them feature more here in the pet trade, they come in quite a wide variety of colours.

Thanks for sharing.

@ Fredsmith - just an update on my Herald Eggs, out of the 28 laid, 27 are plump and good and 1 has crumpled beyond recovery. Your wish may therefore soon be granted.

@ Nexus - Were they already feeding on pinks when you got them or did you do the conversion yourself.

I did it myself. How do you incubate the eggs?
