Can't be helped I'm afraid. Honestly with these, the scrubs and the Madu retic together with what I've already got I do think that's it for now - at least snake wise. Yes I'd love move but each set up costs me at least 250 just in electronics and I want to do each snake justice so big vivs.

Added to the fact I want to be sure even if I have say a job crisis I can still afford to feed everything.

And honestly there's not much that can top what I've got. Fill out the collection sure but stuff I really want?

Re: New purchase - Liasis olivaceus (olive pythons)

Looking good Danny! I'm really enjoying my Olive. I'm pretty sure you'll like them too. My male is pretty active and easy to handle but VERY food driven. I'm excited to watch our critters grow. Keep the pics flowing please.

Oh I will. Yeah feeding response will be interesting. Will be a contest between them and the scrubs as to who takes my hand off first!

She doesn't hold a patch on these, but you're right Danny the old girl still has a certain charm. You're back on the Christmas card list

Re: New purchase - Liasis olivaceus (olive pythons)

Well safe to say there's nothing wrong with the feeding response on these guys! The girl is a little more timid and was more interested in trying to make me go away at first however the male was in there without hesitation.

Always good to get the first meal down!

Always nice to get the first feed out of the way, good to hear they're eating for you

Without getting bit would be the best way

Awesome snakes Danny. Congrats. I have a pair from Jeff Hartwig. They are hands down my favorite snakes. Gentle giants and super smart. If I could only have one snake it would be an olive.

I've spoken to a few people who have owned or still own them and not one person has a bad word for them.

I think you'll agree that pictures just don't do them justice either. Such subtle beauty that's quite a surprise when you first see them in the flesh given they're essentially just green on the top and creamy white underneath.
