over 15-ft and a Happy 2011 New Year..

Im just a small collector (and will keep it that way). Even if i have my own place & got lots and lots of space.(even if i have workers to do all the chores) I would really consider ever keeping a snake which can grow over 15-foot.
None, of the snake in my collection (to date) will ever to grow over 12-ft. I only predict my female brong will grow up to 10-ft.
.. a 24-ft long reticulated python.
Imagine, feeding it.
Imagine, handling it.
Imagine, the food.
Imagine, the waste.
(All the above, is situation, where you are the "only" keeper for such beauty)

Anyway, that is just me. I dont see, myself keeping them. Even tho, I love all snakes. I know, some of you out there, keep monster snake. So salute & congratulation for keeping them. Wish that snake, will enjoy a happy & healthy life as it is the owners responsibility to keep and take care of their pets, right.

Happy New Year 2011 to all the followers & readers of my blog. More animals, more pets & more snakes stories next year.
;o) Peace!!

Snake Biting!

Snakes biting, part of working with a lot of snakes or any animal for that matter is getting bit. Here at SnakeBytesTV and BHB we get bit a lot, but the truth is most of our snakes never bite. We want to show you the two major reasons that snakes bite and what we do about it when it happens. Remember snake bites happen, but as long as they are NOT venomous snakes, there is seldom anything to be freaked out about:)

I keep Pet Snakes which are non-poisonous.

Beginners Pet Snakes, includes Ball Pythons, Corn Snakes, Milk Snakes & King Snakes. They are beginners due to they relative small size less than 6 feet when adults. It wont over power you, and you can relatively handle them alone.

Then come, the Intermediate Pet Snakes, such as Hognose, Boas, Bloods. Boas & Bloods can grow up to 12 feet & they required at least 2 person to handle, cause at adult size, they sure weight alot and there are very powerful constrictors. Hognose on the other hand, are know to give an allergic reaction when it bites to some people.

And lastly, the Expert Pet Snakes, like Burmese Pythons, Reticulated Pythons, African Rock Pythons, Anacondas. These snakes grow more than 20 feet, at such giant length, these snakes have incredible power & weight, they can easily over power 2-3 full grown adult. Respect to those keepers.

My New Wish.. (Well, One of them..)

No, your eyes not playing a trick on you. Nor, this picture is photoshopped.
Left, het VPi Axanthic. Right, VPi Axanthic.

Axanthic is 1st produce by VPI in 1997. Axanthic is a simple recessive mutation.
The way the silver/blue highlights the contrasting black and The way the silver/blue highlights the contrasting black and white is truly AWESOME!......These snakes lack most yellow coloration/pigment.....because of this.........they do not have the normal brown appearance of a normal ball python.

Finally you ate!!

Hello, readers. Long time, no update. I was practically very buzy, and the last 2 weeks, my baby boy Rafie was sick, which then made me sick. Anyway, I'm recovering now, and I can update a few things.

As the title say, "Finally, you ate!!" I wasn't worried or anything, cause Ball pythons tends to fast ever now and then. And, again, her weight lost isn't that too worrying.
Added to the collection: 17-Aug-2010 at 1027-grams.
Finally ate : 02-November-2010 at 1006-grams.

Over 2-months of fasting, hope she will continue this trend.

Another DIY in process.

Long time no post. Been buzy with Hari Raya, working & DIY project.
If you know, me I plan things. Here's my DIY project.

I currently got 8 rat tubs & 36 mice tubs. Just enough to feed my collection of 42 snakes/week, with the extras sold.
With the breeding season coming, I dont want to be in shortage of mice pinkies & rat pinkies. So I start.. building the 5 stories tub 1st as a trial. (as its a trial, any mistakes will be noted & so the 2nd built will be much more easier to built)

1st 5-story tub DIY trial start: 2010-09-26

Planning to built 50-tubs altogether..

Reverse Okeetee Cornsnake.

Here is my oldest snake in m collection. I keep her since she was a baby 5 years ago.
Did I mention, she was also my 1st snake. Before I buy a snake, I did my research before purchasing her. I research on their food, ease of keeping, temperament. You can find all these in google since we are all in this internet technology.
In summary, A very easy & a total beginners pet snake to keep. I have over 40-plus snake in my collection with 6 species of snake (i got blood python, boa, ball python, cornsnake, milksnake & hognose), I would put my word that corns are easier to keep. I ever keep kingsnakes species before but they are more temperament, not that i cant handle their temper or habit. I want to keep snakes that are known to be docile & not easily provoke.
So to those of you who wants to keep a pet snake, I highly recommend a cornsnake as your 1st snake. They will readily almost eat, cause compare to ball pythons, they do turn a meal down, which could hinder the eagerness of a new pet snake owner. Females grow up to 6-feet (well, that's the record), and males grow up to 4-feet. My Smygle (yeah, that's her name), she is just 5feet 10inch.
Then again, there are people keeping poisonous cobra, which will be putting himself at risk, not to mention the people (family) around you. Or why keep a Retic (Ular Sawa), they are cute when babies, but what will you do when it reach 10-feet or more, will you be able to feed it? Feeding mice or rats to them, that will take more than 20-mices or 10-rats to keep him full. where will you keep it? Do you have a friend standing by if you handle them, a snake over 8-feet, you need 2 person or more for supervision.
Be a responsible pet snake owner. There are enough stray cats and dogs around from irresponsible pet owners.. boo.

Python Brongersmai in September-2010

Let me update on my Brong or commonly known as the Malayan Blood Python.
Superb coloration, and temperament. Honestly, a blood feels very different than holding a ball python or a boa. Guess, you just have to experience it to feel the difference.
She is nearing 800-grams, yeah!!

Woma Ball Python

A woma ball python is almost similiar to a spider ball python. Infact, a spider breed to other are simpily stunning. As a example, a spider breed to a pastel will produce a Bumblebee. A stunning morph indeed.
But why did i get a woma. A woma breed to a pastel will produce a woma pastel. Not as stunning a bumblebee (hands down..), but wait till a woma pastel breed to a yellow belly or a butter or a lesser. The triple morph offsprings are simpily stunning, i could say more stunning than a spider triple morph.
Well, i might be bias, but you can check out what woma morphs becomes when incorporated to others. Booya!!

Sumatran Blood Python in September-2010

Every shed, this black beauty turns more beautiful.
He's about 600-grams plus, pounding on 1 rat per feeding. I dont want him to grow up too fast, i adopt a 7-14 days feeding regime for him.

I have no breeding plans for him at the moment cause I'm more concentrated on my other snakes. But stay tuned..

Which Pastel Ball Python would you like?

There are a lot of Pastel Ball Pythons. Some breeders will grade them, with Grade-A being the most beautiful, and Grade-E being the least.
Pastel is a color mutation in Ball Python. Where on a Normal, its just dark color snake, whereas on a Pastel, its obvious Yellow coloration.

Even then, there are some Normals which looks like a Pastel. Dishonest breeders/sellers will sell Normals as Pastel. Typically, a Pastel cost more than a Normal, due to the co-dominant advantage on a Pastel. So, get your money worth.

A Normal breed to a Normal, will always give 100% Normal babies. While, a Pastel to a Pastel, will give Normals, Pastels & Super Pastels. A Super Pastel is a more intensely color snake. The beauty of a Super Pastel is when breed to a Normal, 100% of the offsprings will be Pastels. If a Pastel to a Normal, will give 50% Normals, 50% Pastels. So a Super Pastel is a great snake to have in a collection, when you have a future plan set-up.

There are a few ways to identify a Pastel. 1st, its Yellow coloration, but some normals do show yellowing coloration like a Pastel. 2nd, is a clear belly, most ball python morphs have clear belly. 3th, Pastel got Green to light Green eyes. Normals dont. Last, most pastel have a faded clear head. A few Breeders will go for the last method (including me), not as an indicator as a pastel, but they use this feature for future breeding purposes.

Here are my own Pastel collection. From a low grade to a very good Grade of Pastel.
1st, my very 1st Pastel Ball Python. I was once a newbie, so I didnt check for good grade Pastels.
He got nice yellow color, green eyes, but the faded clear head is not that great. I grade him as Grade-C.

2nd, one of my Female Pastel. This is one beautiful Pastel, very high Yellow coloration, faded head is also noticeable here. I grade her as Grade-B.
Lastly, a very Good grade Pastel Ball Python. Infact, she was sold as a Blonde Pastel Ball Python. Why blonde? There are a few very good lines of Pastels. NERD, Blonde, Lemon to name a few. Good thing is most pastel, brown out with age. With blonde, the yellow coloration stays till adulthood. Here she is, what do you think?

Her future is to be breed to a Pastel Yellow Belly, a Ball Python with 2 morphs. I'm not sure, what line, the Pastel Yellow Belly is, but i'll grade him as Grade-B. The Offsprings will be Normal, Pastel, Blonde Pastel, Yellow Belly, Pastel Yellow Belly, Blonde Pastel Yellow Belly, Super Pastel/Blonde & Super Pastel/Blonde Yellow Belly. Hopefully, I plan to bred and get a pure line of Blonde Pastels. I see, not a lot of breeders around here, emphasis on this importance. But if you know me, I'm more details on the work I done. Call me serious, but I want is customer satisfaction & my own reputation too.

Why i elaborate on the importance Pastel lines in a collection. If you want to do breeding in the future, like say, you want to produce a Bumblebee, thats a Pastel breed to a Spider. If you use a low grade Pastel, the Bumblebee, you produce will also be a low-grade one. Where a low-grade Bee, which is beautiful as hatchling, will brown-out with age. But if you use a good line Pastel, with that Spider, the Bumblebee you produce will be much more better, and the color stays bright. It will even have a new name, a BlondeBee.

1.0 Coral Albino Boa.

My third monster snake. I call them monster, cause they can grow more than 8-feet, and require 2 person to handle when they reach 6-feet or more (for safety purpose) Be an educated & responsible snake keeper. Hope this is my last Monster snake purchase.
Eddie HM holding a Male Coral Albino Boa. Why a male, cause males grows up to 8-feet, while female can grow up to 12-feet. He's steadily pounding 1-2 rats/week. His future is a breeding with a Female Albino Boa, which will produce Albinos & Coral Albinos offsprings. Will keep you readers posted.

Genetic Stripe & Super Mojave Ball Pythons.

Genetic Stripe Ball Python & Super Mojave Ball Python.

A Genetic stripe is a recessive morph ball python, breeding it with a Normal will produce all Normal 100% het for Genetic Stripe.

The Super Mojave is co-dominant morph, produce by breeding a Mojave to a Mojave.

The Genetic Stripe has always been in my collection. Been keeping her a year plus now. She grows more beautiful with time, I was really surprise that, she's the public favorite as everyone who sees her, says she's a absolute beauty. Its a wise spend, even though I haven't produce het Genetic Stripe, but when the time comes, picture will tell a thousand tales.

The Super Mojave is NOT mine, instead its a friend. Made a deal with him, to breed the Super Mojave with my Male Butter. Predicted offsprings would be Normals, Butters, Mojaves and the stunning Blue Eye Lucy (in this case, a Butter & Mojave). A Blue Eye Lucy, is a completely white snake (Ball Python), infact more whiter than the Super Mojave. As the name says, it does have Blue Eyes. An absolute stunner, when thinking of a white snake, with brilliant blue eyes. Stay tuned for their breeding outcome.

Caramel Albino Ball Python

Another recessive morph ball python added to my collection.
A caramel albino is different from an albino, a caramel albino is also call an Albino +, while an albino is call an Albino -.
The Caramel Albino, describe as a wash out normal, with all blacks absent, like an albino but leaving a yellowish, brownish, lavender color, which you got to see it yourself. It one of the rare morphs that maintain its color through adulthood.
The combination morphs that can be achieve by breeding the Caramel into others are unlimited.
But working with recessive is a long way journey, but I guess, it will be very worth it in the end.
