Pythons Questions

What is a Tiger Python? A Super Tiger?

Is there a real difference between a Dwarf and a Super Dwarf?

I just got my Colubrids but I'm thinking of either a Carpet or one of the others listed above depending on size, humidity requirements, etc.

Something along the lines of 6-12 ft max.

Re: Pythons Questions

I think you may mean a tiger reticulated python. It's a pattern morph, and super tiger is the homozygous form of the tiger morph.

Super dwarf retics can stay 10' or under, and dwarves can get 15'+.

If you want 6'-12' max and are looking at retics, get either a pure SD or an SD mix with at least 50% SD blood. The more, the better. They also require very high humidity, I'd say 70-80% and no less than 60%. They will have a bad shed if the humidity falls too low quicker than something with similar humidity needs like a boa constrictor will.

Re: Pythons Questions

Thanks for the info!

Don't want a 'big' snake, and needed some more facts,before reaching out to someone about a purchase.

Put a feeler out to Bob Clark about two of his SDs. I'll see what he writes back.

Re: Pythons Questions

Did you hear back yet? I actually sent an email to Bob today before seeing this thread. I'm in a similar position as you and I'm interested to hear about your research!

Thanks!

Re: Pythons Questions

Speak of the devil...Mr. Clark responded back today! And darn my luck...they were ALL sold.

But, Bob did say he had some hatching in June. I told him to keep me up to date.
