Hi mate,
You can go to pretty any Joinery workshop, or any wood supplier with a lathe and request any size dowels of any wood, if you go for a really hard dry wood (that's non toxic) it will absorb any moisture from the wooden viv and give it better contact. I just used 8mm ash dowels i made my self and glued them also. It wouldn't really matter if it was toxic as it wouldn't come into contact with your rep if it was drilled and sealed properly, although it can't hurt to take precautions

First up is a sub-adult Arso Type

Stunning in the flesh!!


Neonate Aru Type

Then heres some updated photos of the other 2.

Male Yappen type
(Not sure if the locale labels were mixed on this one, stunning anyway)

Female Mixed Locale - Eugene Bessette

Stunning collection Kris. The Arso is my favourite. Is Arso a genuine locality type or is it an Aru x Sorong?

By the way if you still have that retic for sale early next year I'll take it. I'm waiting to move house right now so unfortunately I can't right now.

yes - the set up is an 18" exo so I would expect it to be ok for a good 6months or so
He played it left hand, but made it too far, became the special man

One of my Biaks (in shed) in a new reptile box. Terrible pics (you can't even see the black markings) and I really need to get some decent ones done soon.

Here is my 2004 big girly Excuse the shed this is how i got her and she has had a good shed since. She is 6 foot and the only Chondro i have that i wont handly. She like to be left alone. Her son below is as tame as a corn snake even late in the night.

And her Son 2007 and now her lover, seem wrong saying that! Those that have seen this guy will agree he is morw and better yellow in the flesh

I hope if all goes to plan i will have some nice High Yellows out of the clutch. The female has produced HY in the past with all green male Biaks. I know Biaks can hold alot of yellow fooling people in to think it a HY then it turns green but her 2007 clutch turned out almost all HY and i am in contact with there owners building up a family tree so to speak So fingers crossed....
