Freshly shed pic of my hatchie
« on: September 16, 2013, 01:05:27 PM »
I seem to get the camera out every time this one sheds because I love the pattern so much. Had her out on the weekend and took this of her having a stretch.


Tip of the trade... make sure that your partner is just as addicted to reptiles as you are! Then the only argument you have is "OK, but where will we put them?"

Geez. You just know who ever bred that must be equally as awesome. :p
Another great photo by the way!

Hahaha :) It's actually bred from a male snake I got from Adderboy. Good specimens seem to produce nice offspring. I was lucky to get two from Adderboy some years back. It's always worth the extra effort to track down nicer looking animals I think.
If he pairs carpets again, definitely try and get one of his hatchies!!!

That is usually how genetics works :P.. Although I have seen some stunning hatchies from ugly parents… hard to know what wild caught will throw I guess. I've seen the greenough pair you got from him on APS I think. The yellowish/green/brown pair.

Yeah those Greenough specimens came from Stencorp on here. They are nice too :)
I agree you never know what lollies they will throw, especially with wild caught. That one in my avatar came from the Greenough pair and it looks nothing like them.

ahhh right, yes I remember now. Have you got a pic of the pair you're talking about up somewhere? You know the rule....if we haven't seen them, they don't exist :P

I'll have pictures of the female somewhere on this site. But I don't think I have any of the male. The male is even nicer than the female with a very yellow/green sort of colour belly on it. I'll try and get some new pics next shed.
Actually come to think of it there is an old picture of them both on this thread>

ah, yes I remember seeing that thread.

The male is beautiful... really nice. Reminds me of the one that Vixen has, which is a stunner.

Yeah, you can see a bit of similarity to its offspring (like your one), but still a little different. That's what I really enjoy about breeding them. Seeing how from one clutch they can all vary a little bit in colour and pattern.
Someone sent me a picture of a SWCP from my first clutch and it looked awesome. Made me wish I had of kept it! :) I'll see if I can find it. It's a half brother to yours.

haha awesome! Gotta love that. I'm sure they're very happy that you didn't :) I'd love to see a pic if you can find it.

This is one picture. But it doesn't do it justice. Just really nice clean light spots.
I'm happy with how yours is looking too! :) Just cant keep em all, I don't have enough room!
