New purchase - Liasis olivaceus (olive pythons)

Been a while since I've been here-still trying to sort out the house move but should be on th next week or so.

To christen the new reptile room through I've bagged a cb16 1.1 unrelated pair of L olivaceus. Very rare in the UK and just had to snap them up. Big plans for their enclosures when they're bigger

They're still at the store for now but here's the shop pic of what I think is the female. Can't wait to get them home...

When it eventually happens. We were meant to complete a few weeks ago but such is the joys of property transactions.

At least I have a 2 room cellar to look forward to and these will fit right in

Awesome! They're rare here too, never had the chance to buy one myself.

Not even at Houten? They're not common though by any means-been trying to talk myself out of these but couldn't pass up.

Future breeding project now

Great addition Danny! I got a 2016 CBB male Olive back in January and he's a blast so far! Looking forward to seeing many more pics of your critters!

Saw that post El-beautiful snakes aren't they. My local store has had 2 pairs this year, the first sold in 20 mins.

These have been there longer but I feared that someone else would snap them up before I was properly ready for them so I've paid in full (not cheap but not wildly expensive for what they are) and will pick them up in a couple of weeks.

Out of interest what's the going rate for them over there?

You can get a normal male in the US for $350-$400. I never see lone females for sale.

That's pretty reasonable. I paid somewhere around $940 for the pair and they had to go as a pair-the store wouldn't split them.

I've never seen them for sale in the UK before this. They may very occasionally come up at the main expo we have otherwise it's a trip to Europe to source them.

I think you'll really like them. My male is far more active than my carpets and spends equal time perching as he does on the ground. And he eats like a pig! I'm excited to have another olive keeper among us.

Maybe, but not that I specifically remember. I haven't been inside the houten expo in years tbh. 2 purchases there but both picked up at the door. They had them in Hamm, was atleast 7 years ago but I came for other things

Re: New purchase - Liasis olivaceus (olive pythons)

Beautiful additions, I really like the uniform colouration of them. Keep us updated on these. Never seen one in person but couldn't house a giant like that.

Re: New purchase - Liasis olivaceus (olive pythons)

Picked up the olive pair today. Such beautiful creatures. Couple of quick photos before they go in their quarantine tubs. Female top then the male...
