Re: Help Identify...

Actually this has proven to be an extremely interesting and educational thread. I did not know that black mambas came in green as juveniles. The pics posted by Daniellouw show just how stunningly beautiful the juveniles can be. Thanks Daniellouw!

Re: Women are better at snake spotting?

It could just be that at certain times of the month i.e. when your brain isn't waterlogged in a soup of hormones as it gets to be leading up to and including menstruation, that women's brains are brighter and sharper than at other times. I speak from experience here, being a woman. At certain times ...

Re: Some hot little numbers

@BV: I would like to know more about the calcium injections. Is it just calcium dissolved in sterile water or how is it made up? Do you inject into the muscle or under the skin? Do you inject in the upper third of the snake's body or elsewhere? How is the dosage calculated? How would you make sure t...

Re: Carpet Pythons 2012

What beautiful snakes! You are so lucky to have the opportunity to breed Morelia like this. I adore Morelia and have a few myself. Thank you for posting.

Re: Gotta love those neotropics!

Nice pics! I too love neotropical rattlers but I've been a bit nervous to take photos of mine after experiencing their strike range first hand. If I may ask, what subspecies of crotalus durissus is she? Could she be crotalus durissus cumanensis? She looks too light to be c. d. terrificus. In the pic...

Re: Red Tegu Female

I heard from a reputable source that the red tegus in particular need vitamin C so the fruits in her diet are very important. They apparently have a higher need for vitamin C than other tegus. Don't know why but maybe its something you can research? Berries tend to be high in vitamin C and might be ...

Re: Husbandry / Reptile Keeping Course

Um...this might be a stupid question BB but I am a little confused. Is it the reptile keeping course to which you are referring or the sareptiles expo? I know you said expo in the post but I just thought it was an odd place to put a post about the expo when we have been talking about a reptile husba...

Re: man-eating brown house snake, (pictures inside)

They are so cute! He looks a bit thin, maybe he was ravenous after his winter torpor and that's why he bit more than he could swallow :)

Re: Peoples knowledge of snakes

My ex-maid told me before she died of AIDS that it was the snakes that made her sick. I then got as mad as a snake and told her yeah it was the trouser snake.

Re: My female boa out and about

she is gorgeous! I also am very wary of feeding too much. I feed juveniles every week but the bigger boas two or three times a month depending on shedding times and the seasons. I would much rather have a healthy snake for thirty years than a super sized one for five years.

Re: Bob Clark's facility burnt down

i don't believe that the words 'decent' and 'insurer' belong in the same sentence ~ not in SA anyway. I am very glad that he is turning his loss into something positive. Good on you bob clarke! May you go on to produce many more beautiful animals

Re: Hi, I'm new!

oh good! Another student of the law who loves snakes. Welcome Peter. Thanks for the pics. I remember when I got my first snakes and how anxious I was to do everything right. Seven years later and a whole bunch of snakes. Hope you stick around for a long time. It's a fascinating hobby.
