Wow Guys!

Congrats!
Thoses guys look amazing! and the boa too...lol

I love seeing this species getting the recognition they deserve.....
They truly are amazing snakes.....

Length wise, u can expect those guys to get 4 feet easily....usually maxing out at 6 feet for females from what ive seen.....

As for Temperment, I have not witnessed any difference in it, because its kind of impossible to tell which local they have come from.
The malaysians are said to be more of a "blood red" and nastier...
but i am saying this solely on "heresay"....

Marketing wise, it would be better for those selling them, to say they are from Sumatra...but i dont think anyone really knows for sure, unless u get papers with them....

again Congrats, and feel free to pm/email me with any questions....

Grant vg,
PS. Also doing the Happy dance!

Thanks Grant,

Thanks for the info. Actually, your constant flow of information had a great deal to do with us choosing this species. We fell in love with them as they're drop dead gorgeous... and we wanted bigger pythons that don't neccessarily get lengths of 20+ feet!

These guys seem to be very sweet so far... we have them in a 52 quart rubbermaid with an 11" wide flexwatt over the back 1/3, a shoebox rubbermaid for water, aspen bedding, and we drilled quite a few holes for ventilation.

I have to get the thermometer / humdity gauge today... but our temp gun is reading the suggested temp on multiple tests... There is a slight fog to the inside walls of the rubbermaid? Too much or just right? Like I say, I'm off to buy the gauge today...

Jon

They Ate!?!?!
Great, thats always a good sign...lol

Usually, when its foggy.....thats too much humidity......
Its ok for a few hours after a misting, but i would try to keep it down to 60%.....Constant fogging is usually up at 80-90%+

But ur getting ur hygrometer...so ull be able to monitor it.

Yep they ate pretty well... everybody had to be still for a while and we turned the lights down and down the hatch.... {G} - they seem to be still a bit timid... but very sweet tempered. Most likely can be attributed to the stress of the show environment and their change/s in habitat... we're putting the finishing touches on their new enclosures and hope to have them in it by tomorrow or the next day...

Thanks for the tip on the humidity... we think it's too high in their present enclosure as well... have to drill some more holes I suppose... they do seem very content however and they feel great when ya go to handle them...

We are just totally enamored of these beauties.

Jon & Tay
