New Species........ Any one keeping?
« on: March 20, 2014, 01:00:49 PM »
Bar the pygmy pythons and Brown tree snakes, has anybody yet got Water pythons and/or NWCPs?
Or is it still to early to ask? I have spoke to a couple pet stores about WPs and they said they maybe able to get them just want to know who has what and if these guys are available yet?

Dave collected everything bar NWCP and RSP.
There are a few NWCP on reg 16, And a bloke up in the Kimberly has one that was from DPaW or something. They are pretty rare and it wasnt even known they were in WA till the 80's apparently. I'm sure a taker will find some, but they would be crazy to let them go cheap. Keeping them and breeding them would bring in good coin for a quite a few season. I reckon there would be orders in advance etc...

So who is working towards license upgrades for RSPs and BTS apparently there has been little change in application numbers.
Are people put off by the apparent difficulty of obtaining the license?

It's more about reward for effort. The time and money put in to collect them, and being able to sell them and make a profit. You wouldn't spend say 20 grand to to make 10 grand in sales. If it was worth the effort, you would be up that way all the time I guess. Lol

How about WPs?
I know Dave got a few but that's all I heard of.

I have a male and female pair of East coast Brown Tree snakes air freighted in from Sydney and Brisbane. Lovely salmon colour underneath .

It's bloody brilliant Dave :)
Had its first slough last week and it all came off with no problems. I was a bit worried I may be keeping it a bit dry, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Feeding well, wont take food from tongs anymore, but if I leave it in then its gone by morning. I pull it out for cleaning and it tolerates a bit of handling, but mostly I leave it alone. It can move pretty quick when it wants too, so fast the pattern blurs into one colour.
Keen to get a male when I get the spare disposable income. Then I'll be chasing a B&W pair from you :)
I emailed BS to see what he had, but he said he is only collecting on orders and with a deposit down first.

Haha :) Yep, I really got looked after with this specimen. Lot of fun to keep, just so different to the pythons.
