Those pictures never came then?

How often do they feed as adults?

Weekly, fortnightly or every 10 days?

Great caresheet, I know very little about bloods. I am starting to research them as I hope to get one in the new year. What about pricing for the three distinct species? How common are each of the species?

Which is the best of the species to keep, in your opinion?

Price wise, they're all pretty similar, Brongersmai and Breitensteini you can pick up for £100+, Curtus will cost a little more, say £150+. Brongersmai and Breitensteini are more common than a good Curtus, but all 3 are equally as nice. If I had to choose, I'd pick a Curtus for overall size, temperament and looks.

They are a great snake, my second snake was a Blood Python and I have not regretted it one bit.

thanks for this caresheet, i'll be editing my care tactics after reading...i've been keeping waaaay too humid! good to know before anything bad happened.
bloods are lovely, and in my experience of one snake quite docile even when warm! a tad wary though.
i'm quite pleased to see them gaining in popularity.
my girlfriend Jax is getting one off you too, so she (the snake) may herself become a girlfriend for my curtus when they're older!
i will stop this ramble now but must say that if you wrote a book, i would buy it!!!!!! the internet is fine, but having a book with pictures and all is still my preference.

I love onions!
This caresheet is actually quite outdated by my standards, I'm still working on my mini book, it's approx 30 pages at the mo! Will hopefully have it finished and published by the end of the year, shame it's taken 12 months longer than I estimated

Thanks for the comments, I am still writing a book.
Jax' little girl is doing great, feeding like a champ and getting huge! Soft as muck when no rodents are around!

With humidity, I keep my room at least 60-65% humidity, and offer large water bowls, this is perfect providing your temps are spot on.
