Hannah- a Labrynth burmese python. In this photo with Deuce the golden child reticulated python.

Hannah is one of our well behaved and great for kids temperament burmese. She is also used to being a show snake. We were so lucky enough to have her in our collection of pets-

These snakes are not a beginner snakes. If anyone intends to purchase one as their pets, i highly recommend you read up about these beauties. Take all the notes you can and understand their dispositions, husbandry, temperature and feeding- also know what kind of morph or type you prefer to own. These snakes do become big and heavy and perhaps long for what you’re expecting.

Thank you for visiting!

Miss Sunshine

‘That one who brings the sun-in our home’

Miss Sunshine is amazing and stunning. Her colour is perfect and I couldn’t believe how bright her colour is- That perfect head and that gorgeous pattern-

Miss Sunshine- is an Albino Burmese Python. There are different variations of her species- Burmese Pythons  are amongst the largest snakes in the world-  She is growing rapidly and is a beauty to look at. She will be a gentle giant and is already a socialite. She enjoys being out and about in our home- She enjoys the company of people-

Did You know? Habitat depletion, continued demand for Burmese pythons in the pet trade, and hunting for their skins and flesh have landed these graceful giants on the threatened species list.

 

Happy Reading 🙂

Hydra- Burmese Python

The Beauty of Hydra

~ ♥ ~ ♥ ~ ♥ ~

I was lucky enough to capture this gorgeous yawn from Hydra.  Sitting right in front of her cage, as she finished the last part of her meal was amazing, rewarded with one of her phenomenal mouth-wide-open moment was spectacular.  I couldn’t ask for more- So here she is, enjoying her time amusing me with her beauty.

So, as you all know, Burmese Pythons are not beginner snakes. Anyone who wants them as a pet needs to know what they are getting their selves into. They are one of the biggest snakes in the world, due to their size, weight and girth; they require a large enclosure and consistent feeding habits.

Lucky enough my husband is fond and experienced with huge snakes. So, I have front line views when it comes to learning how to handle huge snakes. I have been petrified of these huge slitherings since I was little. I remember telling my husband, “I am moving out the day you move snakes in the house”- well look who’s buying and collecting more than she expected.

Anywho, albinos and morphs are my favourite snakes- something about their patterns and colour is just amazing to me!

Thank you for visiting!!!

What a rescue-

We received a call and was asked if we could pick up a seven footer, Burmese Python.  We weren’t told of the nature or condition of this reptile.  We were only told that they (owner) are moving somewhere and are not allowed to have their reptile.  Shortly after my husband left, he telephoned me and said that he has arrived and will tell me later of when he finds out anything.

An hour has passed and I was getting worried, he never takes this long to pick up a reptile, especially when it’s only a short distance from our home.  So I rang him and was quickly dismissed by saying, “I will be home shortly sweetie”, and the line went dead.  About twenty minutes later, the car rolled in the drive way, I hurried up to the car and saw the disappointment written all over his face.  I thought to myself, ‘this is not good’.

Finally situated inside the house, my husband told me of his eventful journey upon collecting this reptile.  The neighbors were sorely afraid of the snake and even named the Burmese ‘the child eating snake’ and how happy they are for someone to take the monster away from their neighborhood.

So my husband unlocked the lid of the container, slowly he opened and then my heart sank.  This beautiful Burmese is burnt from neck to about a quarter off its tail.  The story then flowed and I knew it must’ve been the reason why they are letting go off the Burmese.  It’s sad to know that there are people out there who are uneducated about caring for their pets.  These people don’t have any idea of the negative impact they have created for people who makes their living selling or breeding reptiles.

It is always helpful to have some knowledge before setting yourself up to such unimaginable situations with reptiles.

It is important to always search for information regarding any reptile you plan to care for.  Be aware of their size and weight at full growth- make sure you are ready and is fully commited to taking care of these loving creatures-

cuddly Scarr

 

As you can see, this gentle giant is no ‘baby eating snake’- I have longed to someday have a foundation for these creatures. They too need love and attention, just because they are cold blooded doesn’t mean they don’t need to be loved-

playtime

 

There was a time in my life when I was sore afraid of snakes, preferably these giants. I remember when I told my husband ‘the day you move snakes in the house, I am leaving’- You can say that was a lie- well, half a lie. I wanted to overcome my fear of snakes, after I learned all I need to know about them and read about them, I decided i’d give it a try.

So you can see where this is going- Yes! I will tell you that story in another blog-

 

TAKE CARE EVERYONE!!!
