A few snakes


I thought this forum needs a little attention. Sense I don't post to much in the other sections as I am still a learning about planted tanks, I figured I would post a few pictures here. I hope you guys enjoy.

Sweet chondros!

Well - as sweet as chondros can be . . . What localities are they? Or are they just cool tree-snakes??

Those are gorgeous tree pythons. Too bad they are illegal in MA and have such a snappy temper

Don't really see green tree yearlings that dark in color.. Most I've seen are more orange.. Beautiful snakes though.

The first yellow ones are (Merauke/Biak) x (Merauke/Biak). The last red one is a pure Jayapura.

People over exaggerate there tempers. Yes they can be highly aggressive, but I have found with all snakes if you approach them with confidence, are slow and deliberate with your actions it lessens your chance of getting nailed. Usually one out of there cage they are fine. Its just getting them out is the fun part. That's why I have removable perches.

Its actually barely 5 months old. The designer lines and some highland animals actually produce some damn near black neos.

Very pretty I saw some in a reptile show but never saw them in any pet store.


Hard to keep?

Thank you for the comment. What temp are you guys keeping it at? Is there enough cover for it to feel safe? Often they will get aggressive if they don't feel secure in there enclosure.

Thank you. They are not hard to keep. They just require specific heat and humidity ranges. If you give them less then ideal conditions they deteriorate quick. More so then other reptiles.

Im not sure of the temp,. but we have him in his own little plastic kritter keeper inside our fairly large Emerald Tree Boa cage. basically just made a miniature verson of the ETB enclosure inside the little keeper.

That's a huge problem. The gtp is not getting the proper tempeture gradient it needs. Snakes can sense when other snakes are around. Im not surprised that the snake is acting aggressive.

This seems to work the best for us at the store, weve had difficulties keeping them healthy when we kept them in small glass terrariums that are exposed to all the stresses involved with kids and people walking past all day long.

What would you suggest? keeping in mind we arent exactly a megachain store with unlimited resources towards housing.

EDIT: i texted the person working just now and they took a temp on the far side to be 79 and the side closest the heat source to be 83

I keep mine in plastic shoebox sized tubs. I use radiant heat panels with a thermostat. I cover three sides with black contact paper for them to feel more secure.

83 is to cold for a basking temp. It needs to be closer to 87. I have a feeling if you guys correct these husbandry issues the snake will do alot better.
