PostSubject: My reptiles   Sat Nov 13, 2010 4:05 am

The facebook link is really easy for me to do, and it stays good even when I update the albums, so the following links are for my,

1.1 bearded dragons: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=28581&id=100000524518076&l=e901c7b6ec

1.1 western hognose snakes: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=38439&id=100000524518076&l=0849c89cd9


0.1 sulawesi mangrove snake: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=9999&id=100000524518076&l=0922f0e353

My bearded dragons are awesome, as bearded dragons tend to be. if you own any, then you know what I mean, and if you dont own any, then you should.


the hognose snakes are really awesome, but very squirmy, always looking for food. I wonder if they would eat till they get sick. the little male is very polite bout hand feeding, the female, she is happy to take a rat pinky, or 3 and maybe some fingertips if your not fast enough to let go. she just charges like a freight train its so funny to watch.

the mangrove snake has become quite exceptional over the last six months, and is now pushing about 5 and a half feet long, and is now very calm, even at night, and can be easilly handled during the day, and even at night, if she has a full belly. I regularly take her with me to the pet store to survey the menu, as I generally feed her golden, white spot, and tokay geckos, and she recently ate a 18-24 in. garter snake. Occasionally, I make her "rough" it with a mere mouse, and now she actually pulls the mice into the branches rather then dropping from the branch. Really a wonderful snake that can be very rewarding with proper care.

Beardies are amazing little lizards, aren't they? Can't beat their personalities. Smile
Your hognose is gorgeous! I've tried twice now to raise hoggies and was miserably unsuccessful both times, so if you don't mind, I'll live vicariously through your experiences. Hopefully I can maybe pin point what I was doing wrong.
Now, I've admired Mangroves for years. Can they be completely on a rodent based diet? Or do they need the diversity to stay healthy?

And I'm sorry to hear you lost your Uro. I had an Ornate Uro (Salvador) that I lost and I was heartbroken. Another lizard that ranks right up there with Beardies for cuteness and personality.

Mangrove snakes will do just fine on rodent only. I feed mine predominately other reptiles because they contain more nutrition, and are easier for her to digest because of the lighter bone structures, and quite frankly, it's just friggin way cooler to see. Several times, she has swallowed a gecko backwards, and that is always interesting because her venom is more like a semi effective paralytic angent, I have seen geckos grab on to her jaw in an attempt to pull themselves out of her mouth, not to mention that tokay geckos will grolw and bark the entire time.

Yeah, he was a bity little terror, but after two days, I had him calmed down and wearing a harness, then started leash training. The whole leash training thing isnt working quite so well though, he kinda goes where he wants and at the pace he wants. I believe this particular one is somewhere between 1-2 years old, possibly older. I got him at the pet shop for 200, he has been bought and brought back a number of times because inexpierenced people dont do their research before buying the animal, then later on realize that keeping it is slightly beyond their abillities, so i think im actually the 4th owner of this particular tegu. ofcourse, he seems more interested in hibernating then anything else right now.

Are you setting them up in an incubator? Or letting mama take care of them?

That is such a beautiful snake. Is she poisonus? Is she rare and will you sell all the babies?

well, the jury is out on rather or not woma pythons are venomous, were venomous, or are evolving to become venomous. They are rare, they are listed as endangered but not threatened, the species may not survive in the wild due too the two very small areas of austrailia that are shriniking due too the usual human growth. the intrest of zoos and hobbyist will keep them around though. I intend to sell all of the babies, and hopefully make more next year.

I don't know about yours, Jon, but my two are like big old noodles. Even more docile and complacent than my ball pythons. Sweetest natured snakes we've ever owned!

well, my female has been a little surly lately, but i figure the gravid and just laid eggs issue accounts for that. She just took down two small rats though. On saturday, i bought a nice female ball python, and introduced it to the woma cage, the male is allready spurring her, and ball pythons are coming into season, so with any luck i will also produce wall pythons this year.

Also, a note on woma care, they do come from deserts, but they also come from a coastal range,now that i have moved, all my pets are in one room, and it is warm and maybe 60% humidity in that room, my womas seem to be doing a little better with shedding, and have not exhibited any respitory problems that might indicate the humidity is too much. will be interesting to watch and track though, this is the end of week one

You can breed ball pythons and Woma pythons? I know you can do some parrots and gt some splits and hybreeds but I never thought snakes would do that.interesting

Theres tons of hybrids out there. Saw a really nice looking Carpondro (Carpet/Condro cross) a few months ago. Its always been a subject of debate on the ethics, but theres been some pretty interesting animals created.

when it comes to breeding hybrids, i understand some people are concerned with ethics, i have no idea why though. dogs, wolves, and even cyotes will all happily create hybrids on their own. the pictures i have found from previous woma/ball breedings have looked mostly fantastic, I havent seen any more breeding behaviour from either animal though, so i might not get hybrids this year. ofcourse, its raining today...

So, 7 baby womas hatched, 3.3, with a 7th one who has some kinda funky eye deformation, so were waiting to see what happens with it. I am also happy to report that 1.1 of them have deposits on them, a very interested 3rd one, and another possible 1.1 sold. My snakes just paid for themselves.

some of the baby womas seem to think they are burms, and will rear up, and open their mouth and hiss oh so quietly to threaten me. one bit me. i think. it might not of been big enough to get its mouth around my hand. they are so funny like that. I had to seperate them, because one would accidentally hit another snake, and then it would strike back, and pretty soon it was a little whirling ball of yellows and browns bralwing. one of the babies is really awesome though, just kinda expects that you will hold her.

also got a clutch of 10 healthy eggs from the hognose snake, and they are due to lay another clutch in a month or so. the first clutch is approximately a month from hatching as well.

I have 6 snakes, ranging from the 65 dollar ball python to the 500 dollar woma python,
3 lizards, 1 frog, 2 toads, and assorted neighbors. thats not counting the 6 woma python babies, (one sold, the eye problem lost the eye but is other wise a healthy little girl, if overly defensive, and i named her trouser) or the hog nose babies that just started hatching. 3 of them so far, with two more heads poking out, and the other 5 eggs could have hatched today for all i know. A Reptile Room here in fresno is perfectly willing to incubate any and all reptile eggs, so i dont bother with a home incubator, espeacially since the babies all get sold at the reptile room anyways. that and if the eggs go bad, or sometimes even after hatching, whats left can be, well, "what a wonderful smell youve discovered"
