What a stunning looking snake. And so friendly

Re: New purchase - Liasis olivaceus (olive pythons)

Thanks - I'm particularly pleased with how natural the substrate looks against the snake.

Just got to do the other Viv now. Hopefully get it done tonight.

It's cute because he is small might be less cute at 12'

Re: New purchase - Liasis olivaceus (olive pythons)

Nice one Danny! Seems like only a year ago mine was that size. The male did the same thing and still does to a point. The female is a big baby. The female does tail wag though. Which I had never witnessed in an Olive before.

I'm confident they'll chill out with age. I've spoken with a number of keepers and have only heard of rare occasions where an adult has been defensive. Not a reason not to be cautious though.

The scrubs on the other hand... Not so sure! I'll have to find a video a friend sent me of his upset scrub - they strike incredible distances.

Re: New purchase - Liasis olivaceus (olive pythons)

The female olivaceus in her new Viv. There's a marked difference in their dawn behaviour at least. The male is always in his hide at the cool end before the lights come on in the morning however the female is out roaming already.

She was also more defensive in her tub whereas the male was very relaxed but now there in the vivs she, whilst still defensive, has relaxed a bit whereas the male just wants me dead.

They are rapidly becoming a favourite and I know I shouldn't have favoured snakes but these guys are just such awesome snakes!

Re: New purchase - Liasis olivaceus (olive pythons)

As said they are beautiful snakes, and it's OK to favourites. Ours change all the time, sometimes it's our retic, sometimes it's the burms, and sometimes it's our royal/ball

He is one beautiful snake Danny , and I'm withholding my judgment whether I like you, or not. Until you start posting pics of the scrubs

Not long to wait. Donnie is on the 25th June. May well be getting the mystery locality Bcc then as well

One hungry olive on his branch. Will try and get a photo of the girl as well but she's exceptionally flighty and defensive at the moment. Really doesn't like me so I'm leaving her alone as much as I can.

Beautiful snake mate, you'll have to keep us updated on them.
