It's been pretty busy around here! We've had our first gecko egg hatch and two more laid and I've decided to scour the world for a mate for my Dino leachie and this means I have to sell Stella to pay for a male. Too bad, as I'd like to keep both of them, but of course, space is limiting. Missed my chance to get one in February as Mark was making a trip to pick up some geckos and I wasn't ready! The little baby chahoua is amazing and I might end up keeping her as she will be the tamest gecko in history!
Also in recent events, my first reptile expo as a vendor went Very well!
I sold a number of baby corns as well as my pair of hognoses. They were very nice, but it is better to consolidate my species list a bit more. Although I have been very distracted lately by the idea of the pygmy pythons (Antaresia perthensis), or the small Stimson's pythons (Antaresia stimsoni). They are pretty and only 2-3 feet long! This means, smaller cages and smaller prey! I like! Only trouble is the rarity and price... I believe that only Henry Piorun of BC is breeding them now in Canada. The children's pythons which are related are almost as small and much cheaper, but not as pretty.
