Alia is a 2015 Bredl's python. She is a big girl at just over 7' long and has the beautiful, primitive head shape that Bredl's are well known for. While care has to be taken to let her know when a hand, not food, is approaching her, she is a giant sweetheart once her food response has switched off.

Argo is a 2016 Miami axanthic bullsnake. He is a stunning boy with a lot of contrast and is just over 6.5' long. While his outgoing nature is endearing and fun to interact with, his insatiable appetite keeps us on our toes while we handle this big guy.

Beren is a 2018 calico black rat snake. He has been a favorite of ours from the time we brought him home as a tiny, pink baby. At nearly 5.5' long, he is not done growing and is already an impressive snake. His personality is kind of like a giant, lazy, hungry dog. The only time he moves quickly is if he smells dinner.

Cinny is a 2014 hypo Honduran milksnake. She is about 5' long with a lovely personality but a wildly dramatic food drive that often results in her partially leaping into the air to grab whatever she thinks is food. Thankfully, she mostly has good aim.

Elathar is a 2016 hypo Baird's rat snake, about 4' long. He is one of our most laid back snakes and has an incredibly calm demeanor. So calm that I'm sometimes tempted to check if he's still alive... he always is, he just really loves to zone out and relax.

Jinx is a 2018 male Kunashir Island Japanese rat snake. He holds a special place in our hearts and has grown into a stunning snake.

Kalika is a 2019 female Vietnamese blue beauty snake. She currently measures about 6' long but still has more growing to do and will likely end up 6.5-7' long. She is a nervous and shy girl but has a strong appetite and triggering her food response has allowed us to help her gain confidence in other situations. She remains largely a display only snake but is very fun to see out and about. She will not be bred until 2023.

Father

Picture #3

Phoenix is a 2020 male Vietnamese blue beauty snake. He is large for his age, nearly 5' long already, and we anticipate him reaching or passing 7' long. He is an incredibly feisty boy, not tolerating handling without dramatic defensive displays and plenty of bites. We worked initially to try and calm him down but with no improvements made, we now leave him in peace as a display only snake. He is bold and outgoing within his enclosure and gains even more confidence when he see food. He will not be bred until 2023.

Mother

Saffron is a 2017 Gulf Hammock rat snake, just under 4' long. She is a hilariously over confident girl, making up for her relatively small size with a vibrant and spunky personality. Her appetite knows no bounds and often leads to her launching herself with reckless abandon at whatever she thinks is food. Luckily, she calms down very quickly during handling and likes to perch on shoulders.
