We never seem to take enough pictures

We never seem to take enough pictures of our Brazilian Rainbow Boas (Epicrates cenchria cenchria).

We never seem to take enough pictures of our Brazilian Rainbow Boas (Epicrates cenchria cenchria). This is one of our adult males.

This species has a reputation of being more challenging to keep because of their humidity requirements. In reality, the challenge may very well be more about understanding how to maintain humidity levels in the enclosure itself.
With proper planning, a good understanding of ventilation, and a substrate that holds humidity well (Coca mulch, Peat moss, Sphagnum moss), this species is very rewarding to keep.

What is your New Years Resolution?

What is your New Years Resolution?
Super Hypo Nicaraguan Boa (Boa sigma)

What is your New Years Resolution? Our resolution is to continue to learn more about our animals, and pass on our knowledge to the many keepers in this hobby. Weather your a new hobbyist or an experienced keeper, there’s always opportunity to learn.

We’ve been working with reptiles for many years now. In the last few years we’ve started keeping various lizards we’ve never kept before. This has been an awesome experience and it’s increased our interest in the hobby, and allows us to share these experiences with friends and other keepers. 😊

Happy New Year! For our first post of 2020

Happy New Year! For our first post of 2020Happy New Year! for our first post of 2020 we thought we would share a picture of a Solomon Island Tree Boa (Candoia bibroni).

Last week one of our females looked like she was building up some follicle growth. You never know, we may be fortunate enough to have some wriggling little neonates this fall. ❤️🐍

Our adult female Timor Python is looking

Our adult female Timor is looking as beautiful as ever

Our adult female Timor Python (Malayopython timorensis) is looking as beautiful as ever. This big girl doesn’t enjoy being handled too much. Generally she gets her her way, only photographing her while coiled up.

Sometimes in the evening before the lights go our we’ll let her cruise around he reptile room, checking things out. Allowing animals to have some enrichment. In our opinion, occasional enrichment goes a long way to the well being of our animals.
