Finally, after a long search and wait the opportunity came up to get some Liasis fuscus. I got hooked when I saw fuscus for the first time at a friend about 25 years ago. Really happy that I finally got myself a pair. They originate from Fogg Dam Northern Territory bloodlines.

Thanks for the nice comments.

@Nicko,
yes, they are a male and female. I would not mind to breed them once or twice in a few years time, as captive bred babies of this species are not that often available (at least I am not aware of it). But I have to admit breeding is not my main goal anymore. I "just" want to enjoy my snakes.

Beautiful snakes, how much do they go for? I take it they are quite rare in the hobby.

Yes, as far as I am aware, they are quite rare. Also, I think, there is not a lot of interest in this species (and most of the other Liasis species). They have quite a bad reputation for being very aggressive. Most of the adult fuscus I saw were not too bad once out of the vivarium. So, fingers crossed my two little ones will also calm down a bit as they grow.
