Question Calabar Burrowing Python (Calabaria Reinhardtii)

We have just aquired a Calabar Burrowing Python (Calabaria reinhardtii). As far as we know this is a fairly rare snake. We have been looking at care sheets and we've tried searching on this forum, but we have not found alot of information. We have her in an enclosure according to the care sheets that we have found on the internet. What we were wondering is if anybody in this forum keeps this species or knows anything about them. We are looking for any information on breeding, feeding, and specific behaviours of this species. Any information would be appreciated.

0.1 Python Regius (Casey), 1.0 Heterdon Nasicus (Piggie), 0.1 Columbian BCI (Jolene), 0.1 Calabaria reinhardtii (Sienna)

I had a female a few years back and she was a real joy. Not the greatest to be handled though that could have been just mine. She was a good eater and stuck with fuzzies (mice )most of her life ( 3 years ) she was about 2 ft long . Certainly liked to hide under and in things and was VERY good at escaping...for weeks at a time sometimes. ( a few locks fixed that problem lol ) . Unfortunately i was only 12 when i had her and knew very little about her despite my readings. ( she was a wild caught ( as most are i understand ) and she died due to parasites ) A lesson learned on my behalf, and im sorry it cost her life. A good, qualified Vet will be able to give you information. And i strongly suggest that you get her checked out, stool sample and with any other animal. But youre right...not too much is really known about them and not many ppl keep them. I hope that you have a great experience with her and find the information you're seeking
