    Hi Al,

    Hope your good. Just messaging as I said you had bred you lineaticollis pits in the past, and wondered if you were planning on doing it again or had/knew of any available? Also, I know most people assume female snakes always grow longer than males, but I have also heard that is not true for some genus. Whats your thoughts in regards to pits?

    Hi Al,

    I've also emailed you to see if you have any of the 2016 Jani still available from your blog page?

    Hi Jonathon,

    Unfortunately there is not a book that covers pituophis nicely like there is with just about every other snake species
    I do own a copy of the Stull book you refer to, its much more on the scientific side and has no pics, but still a good reference point.
    Patricks a good guy and his site is very up to date info wise.

    Just been on Patrick Briggs' website and that is quite impressive but I do like books! I would appreciate your opinion - Are you familiar with "Variations & Relationships in the Snakes of the Genus Pituophis" and is it worth the money?

    Al, I just picked up a hypo San Diego Gopher. Is there a good book on gophers, especially one which details the various subspecies? Jonathan

    sounds like maybe he's very nervous from your description,and maybe try feeding last thing at night just before the temp drop.set your stat to be at least 8-10F lower at night.
    The only other thing I can think of is maybe a flagyl/ worm prob (picked up somewhere beforehand),this can be easily addressed using beaphar products.
    hope this helps for now.

    I was wondering, everyone goes on about how well the pits eat, but our gopher strike, constricts and then lets go of the food and doesnt bother with it, we have to leave him to it, covered up for 10 mins, he seems disinterested, his temps are fine, hes not due a shed and apparently hes always been like this the rep shop said :/

    Really not sure, we feed frozen and thawed adult mice, warmed in warm water and dried a little. We've tried braining the mouse but it makes no difference!?

    Thanks xxx

    Hi Amy,
    he's not a morph just a nice example of a normal/wild with pattern/colour.i have some that lean more towards the yellows,others orange.I guess it comes down to locale/ lineage and other factors.

    Thanks for checking him out! i looked on the site you linked me to, he looks like the wild type, but hes much much brighter and has red patches all down the bottom half of his body, is he a mixed morph or am i just a lucky owner of a fancy wild type? ^_^ Cheers Amyx
