It’s been a busy old summer, so busy in fact that I have not had time to update this site.
New acquisitions to the collection have included an adult pair of Caulker Cay Boas. We were advised that the female was 100% gravid, but it is quite clear that she is not. However, we will get her ready for breeding for the end of the year. We also bought a trio of adult Tarahumara Boas, two females and one male. Again we hope to have one pair ready for the end of the year.
We were able to swop a trio of our 2014 pastel babies for an adult pair of spotted pythons. I really don’t know why these very small snakes are not more popular in the hobby. They are a beautiful pair, easy to handle, very small, but very inquisitive.
Immediate future plans include a pair of 2013 Corn Island Boas, a pair of 2013 Ecuadorian Boas, and a 2014 pair of Costa Rican Boas. We are very excited at these prospects as they significantly broaden our collection.
Breeding this year has been a little disappointing after the excellent start with the Pastel/Sharp pairing and the Sand Boas. Our pairing of Coral and Salmon did not result in anything, nor did our Pastel/Hog Pairing. However, we have witnessed multiple locks between our Motley and Hypo Jungle. We also believe that our pair of het Blonde Albinos may be parents, as the female is beginning to swell up.
On a sadder note, our female Jungle passed away, unfortunately as a result of complications in her pregnancy. This is a big disappointment as she was one of our favourite snakes. Sadly these things happen.
We will be attending our first show in Hamm in September, and are really looking forward to it, not just because we are collecting the Costa Rican and Ecuadorian Boas, but also to meet up with some of the breeders we have been corresponding with.
