I really enjoy watching her strike when she can be bothered to - surprisingly quick and powerful for such a docile animal. Quite often, though, I just end up laying the rat down and she'll cuddle it for an hour or so before eating it.

I have kept all three species of 'blood' python and my favourite is the Sumatran 'Short Tailed' Python aka Black Blood: P.curtis.

I have been working with this particular species for over 10 years and due to one thing or another have never managed to breed them - I hope that is about to change as one of my females has been locked with may male several times over the last month or so.

I have 1.2 (one male and two females) of the Southern Form which is sometimes known as the Melanistic Form for obvious reasons.





Although I no longer keep the Northern Form (also known as the Mahogany Head) - here you can see the contrast between the two.

Batik is the morph, it's a co-dom gene - this little guy is also HET T+. Next season should be fun!

My SSTP is a , not the norm from what I gather from a few people. He's also only 3ft long at 3 years old, maybe he has "little man syndrome" I dunno.

Very rarely I'll get a day where I can handle him for 5 minutes, then he reverts back to having a soul the same colour as his scales like most days.

Stunning animal though, brilliant to feed and certainly keeps me on my toes. Love the little chubster.

Here...have a picture where he's in shed, because I've been too lazy to get any decent ones since...

Here's my 2013 female brong Ruby, from Dave at Bloodball.

Bloods are certainly interesting to keep! Mine has an amazing strike response, loves her food and is also good to handle. I do find I have to be more 'aware' when handling her compared to any of my other species though; if I'm a little too jerky in my movements she gets pretty hissy. Nice and slow and she's as sweet as any of my royals though

I'd seen bloods but never handled one before getting her, and considering I'm a pansy when it comes to the idea of getting bitten I do pretty well with her and she only struck me when I originally picked her up and hasn't done so since

Love these snakes more and more every day, thanks for all the input people

Not going to take the plunge just yet though, would like to handle a few and find the "right" snake for me. No rush
