We had a fabulous trifecta day at our local reptile store show casing our snakes. Our friends had a wonderful time in the thirty minutes of down time. We were able to take amazing photos and enjoyed the trifecta-
We have also met future customers and built clientele… its been a great day altogether 🙂

Thanks for stopping by everyone 🙂

Just hangin’ out with friends

Today has been a gorgeous day. So what do we do? We show our reptiles 🙂 First thing we did was clean our house- then tackled the snake cages and the most fun part of the day- taking photos. We all love this part, don’t you?!?! 
So this afternoon, our friend Tucker, came to visit. We enjoyed our friends company so much- we’ve taken photos, talked about snake history and their locales and…well you guys pretty much know what we do- we talk a lot about snakes. Here’s a few pics to share

Tucker with sasha

Here is Sasha with our friend Trucker.  Sasha is about 15ft long now- she’s the ‘mainland retic’ so she grows up to 30ft long- (the longest retic according to their locale)  Sasha is 2 yrs old and is growing even more- She is gentle and sweet-

Maia with Nikolai

Maia is a Jampea Platinum- she is technically a dwarf retic.  She is about 6ft – 7ft long and is 2 years old.  She is very beautiful and a sweet snake 🙂

Deuce with Nikolai

Deuce is a golden child- I don’t really know how this name came about, but this golden child is amazing.  We enjoy the iridescence of his colour, and of course his sweet temperament 🙂  We cannot wait to breed him with the Jampea Platy (Maia) and Tiger retic (Sasha) this season-

Olympus the great

So here is Olympus- super salmon boa. He is my most gorgeous neonate. He’s 3 weeks old and he’s just so precious- our friend Kevin did a good job caring for him, until he was shipped to our house last Tuesday 🙂

Please read up more on their history and origin, should you care to own one.  have a wonderful Sunday everyone!

Deuce- ‘the golden child’

‘GOLDEN CHILD’

Who would ever think that a snake can be classified as a ‘golden child’- I’m with you on this one. It’s amazing how we people can come up with names to classify something out of the ordinary.

Anyway, here is Deuce- our golden child- purchased by a friend from Prehistoric Pets during the reptile show (inturn, we purchased from him)- He is amazing and sweet tempered. I can’t explain how gorgeous his colour and pattern is, unless you own one yourself or have seen one in person.

all of him

His iridescence is so amazing, pictures can’t really capture what the eyes could hardly see 🙂  His colour changes, when he is outside or when he is inside 🙂  Deuce is spectacular either way-

Thanks for stopping by mates!

Jampea Platinum

Posted in Pythons, Reptiles, Snakes with tags , on 10 May 2013 by rainforestexotics

We were so lucky to have Maia- our beautiful jampea platinum retic. Maia was produced by Jake Klotz in May 2011 and was purchased by Kevin of KGconstrictors. Maia’s lineage was from 100% jampea and a platinum tiger. Kevin has shipped her to our home and she has adjusted fairly well to her new husbandry. She’s very sweet and enjoys the great outdoors as well as human contacts- we are so lucky to have her in our family, the children enjoys her company very much-

As you can see Maia is such a great addition to our family. She has adjusted well and has entertained our neighborhood children. We have taken photos and will soon be filming her activities with kids and at home- be sure to visit or subscribe for updates.

INFO- I have changed Maya to ‘Maia’ for personal preference.
