Best ones are in books. Try Mike Swan, keeping and bred ding Australian pythons as the section on olives is very good.

Well it's about keeping them in captivity in Australia, so the book tends to miss out details that we need to know in England, but It's still got good info in it

Pythons of the World Vol 1 is hard to come by and expensive when you do isn't it?

yes it is hard to come by these days and yes i paid £80 for my copy 14 years ago!! but a very good read also the line drawing are out standing and the centre plates are stunning photos!

put a deposit on a cb11 male to pick up in a few month. I reserached these guys last year made notes etc etc but moved house 2 weeks ago and have lost them. i know about sizes they reach, temperament etc etc. its just the general care, temps, humidity etc it took me a few weeks last time just to find this sort of info.

thats the reason i didnt get one last year because i couldnt find someone/ a shop within a decent distance of me until my local rep brought 3 back from hamm, two were sold instantly ( a m & f pair) and i jumped at the chance of the remaining male.

Thanks bud
