Red phase Corallus hortulanus

My only other acquisition since I was last on- this beautiful snake.

As is the norm I've let Finley name him so without further ask I give you Gold Armour Minecraft Superhero...

Store pic for now as he's still settling in...

Re: Red phase Corallus hortulanus

Gold Armour Minecraft Superhero freshly shed. The contrast in his markings are becoming really quite striking. Great snake - typical ATB attitude but doesn't quite want me dead like Mrs Olive does!

Re: Red phase Corallus hortulanus

Thanks both. I have little say over the name of my snakes unfortunately!

Really pleased with how he is coming along - love the way hortulanus pattern develops over time, no idea how he's going to eventually look even now.

Re: Red phase Corallus hortulanus

I didn't know they change that much with age and for the better. I might have to more seriously consider one. Don't know what my options for them are around here but might be worth looking into.

Re: Red phase Corallus hortulanus

For the most extreme change look at a neonate Halloween phase compared to an adult. You'd never believe it was the same snake.

They're awesome snakes. Relatively easy to care for and note inquisitive and active than say a viridis. Prefers thicker perching branches than viridis as well - they like a crook of a branch to curl up in rather than to drape over a thin single branch.

Stunning feeding response and when awake - very alert.

They are very neat if I do say so myself. I'm hoping to produce some.

What's really neat is you can breed a halloween phase to a red and get solid reds or maybe some yellows!

Yep, they are not morphs as such and as far as I know (and happy to be corrected) but gene mapping to produce certain phases had not been worked out. You get whatever pops out and the same is true in the wild.

I have the chance on a yellow phase but don't know if I want a pair. I am now dangerously close to divorce territory numbers and and there's a particular snake I'm holding out for.

Re: Red phase Corallus hortulanus

I really liked the black Halloween phase ATB, the black and orange looks really cool.

You guys are making it hard to not get one of these little worms!!!!

As adults they turn to various shades (dare I say 50 shades) of grey. As I say, remarkable transformation.

If you have the space (and they don't need a lot) then there is no reason not to get one
