I haven’t seen any recent posts about blood and short-tailed pythons, so I thought I would share pics of mine and invite others to do the same.
This is Red Riggs (Riggs for short). He is my pride and joy. He’s a 2016 T- albino with genetic banding and I’ve had him since he was 6 months old. Definitely the most colorful snake in my collection and also my largest curtus complex animal. I love him, but he does not return the favor. I think the white tail on T- albinos is really cool.
This is Huffy. She has the most “challenging” temperament of any snake in my collection. She is a VPI “Super Red” het T- albino. I chose her for Riggs because she is also banded, and I think they will make awesome babies.
This is Tito. He is a year younger than the rest, hatched in 2017. He is a northern orange-head Sumatran short-tailed python, het for VPI caramel albino. In general, Sumatran short-tails, or black bloods as they are sometimes called, are smaller and calmer than other curtus complex animals. Tito is the calmest of the group.
This is Cake, the most valuable of the group. She is a visual VPI caramel albino Sumatran short-tail. She is also a big girl and is never defensive, but can be bitey at feeding time. I paired her with Tito this year, but I’m not sure that the pairing will be successful since they are both still pretty young.
