Hi all,

This chondro has been known about for a while (amongst those in the know :lol2:) but it recently cropped up again on one of the specialist chondro forums that I post on so I though I'd show you guys what is, for my money, the wackiest chondro ever produced. This animal resulted from a "Glaser" x "Glaser" pairing and was bred by Markus Riehl ( a "Glaser" animal being a sorong x biak cross from the breeder named Glaser).

Just to reiterate, this is not a hybrid and it is 100% green tree python.

Enjoy!

That's also a stunning looking chondro but to me that looks like an animal that is mid-way through its colour change. My guess is that he/she started out as a red baby and will loose a lot of that redness as it completes the colour change process. Having said that, it does already have the blue (adult colour) dorsal stripe so that may have finished changing.

Do you have any info on that snake?

cheers

cheers. Very interesting :) Striking looking animal that.
It certainly is. Initially there was (and to some extent still is) suspicion that it is not a chondro but rather a chondro x carpet hybrid but most of the well respected breeders now accept that its a pure chondro.

I've always found it a bit strange that it was never mentioned in Greg Maxwells book but my understanding is that the animal hasn't so far been bred so we don't know if that look is inheritable in the way that we'd hope with designer bloodlines.

I suppose it just goes to show that we can never be 100% certain what's going to poke its head out of an egg...

which is a very nice though considering my sorongs have just started pipping! :2thumb:
