It's the time of year when I pair up the pythons. So here's some images of pairs of pythons. Pythons.

Still more to pair and others not taking pics of.

Hope everyone has a good season!

Thanks Fraser! Same to you
Hopefully at least one of the Angolan Pythons (2 females paired up) and some Royal Pythons (4 females paired up) go this year. Unfortunately I don't think either of my two Sumatran Pythons will go onto produce this year although having said that, I think the problem is with the male not being mature enough.

The Wide Mouthed Agamas are showing good signs and the Egyptian Tortoises, well - they have never actually stopped!!

Best of luck with the savus! Don't seem to see them around much.
Thanks, both my female savus did produce last year. Though due to fertility and some issues with one of the females health, I only hatched 1. The 1 hatchling is going to a friends place soon and the female that had health issues is being retired from breeding.

Sounds good, Angolans would be great. Awesome species. I miss my black bloods, if you do get any I could be tempted.

Forgot to post these here.

2 clutches of Antaresia maculosa, both laid beginning of April.

I did provide a laybox for her, but she decided the substrate was better.

Nature Mixture Sand Wood Soil


13 eggs total.

I didn't get a pic of the other female on her eggs, not as good clutch with about half being infertile. Odd as she did a decent clutch last year, maybe she needed more food. Only 6 fertiles

Nature Mixture Sand Chemical compound Soil



Macklots are due to hatch within the next 3 weeks. Also a lot of the other female pythons are in shed, suggesting they're up to something. Time will tell.

Update on the papuana female.
I took the male out around 13th April as I hadn't seen a lock for over a week, which was quite unusual. They'd also been avoiding each other.

The female then went into shed, this shed lasted a very long time and was quite thick. She eventually shed on 28th April.
I offered her a small meal around 1st May and she took it, and then another meal this week on the 10th.
She basks constantly and basically looks like this at all times. Time will tell.

*as mentioned previously; please excuse any poo/urates/shed in her enclosure as I am trying to leave her alone as much as possible. This species is known to stress easily.
