Well, you can always tell when hatchling season arrives. Facebook starts blowing up with outstanding clutch shots & hatchling photos. Lots of amazing ball python creations being produced right now. Very exciting times! If you are lucky, you can also witness some nice catfights and hissyfits over this that and the other thing. Reality & drama posts are also so much fun to read! Can't wait so see who goes toe to toe this season, lol.


Freedom Breeder just had a 4th of July sale on a compact FB70 line rack for $800 shipping included. I simply had to snatch one up after a quick 2 seconds of consideration. Pretty sure I can find some females to fill it up rather quickly. I hope to upload some pick's when it arrives. All my Freedom Breeders are more than 10 years old, so this will be a nice thrill to set up a new rack once again :-)

Until next time, take care...

I was contacted recently by my good friends from The Southern Nevada Herp. Society to present a Ball Python Lecture, at the end of summer. I'm really looking forward to get out into public again, maybe I'll take a few goodies to show and a nice raffle item as well, more details coming soon!

Hatchling update: My first two clutches of this season have pipped. The babies are just sitting in the eggs sucking up all the remaining nutrients before they are ready to explore. This is going to be the start of a record breaking season for me. I had to order new hatchling racks, and can't even remember the last time I got a new rack, the anticipation is so exciting! The 2013 Hatchling photo page will be up in the middle of July-ish? Cheers!

Green Ghost with het daughter, I believe this is one of they key elements needed to create a blue ball. Think about it, mixing blue & yellow make green, well why not take the yellow away, what's left?

100F + from now on here in Las Vegas. Good thing I installed a new swamp cooler in the reptile room, it's holding a flat 88F so I can shelf incubate all my eggs also :-)

Very long work day today... just wrapping up an email to my good buddy Marc and finished with this sentence, "Thanks again for emailing Marc, I just checked on the snows for you and found another snow female layed a surprise clutch bred to a snow male :-) Thought I was going finish up the emails, take a shower and hit the bed, guess not?" Nice! ;-)
