Default Blood Python

Here is a picture of my Blood Python. We've had him for about 2 years and he has really grown a lot.

Beautiful python. I looked at getting one for a while but I only have room for my Red Tail since the frogs have have taken over the entire house. How old is he?

...and what lives in the tank he's on? Looks like a pretty nice setup!

I think he is about 2.5 years or something like that. He was a bit smaller when we first got him. I'll have to post pictures of my brazilian rainbow boa when he gets done shedding.

I've got two auratus in there. They've got it made for now. Someday I plan on having a small group in there.

Are they known to be aggressive?

Bloods are real aggressive for the most part, tho I've seen and handled some what docile ones before.

Bloods are like retics . . . the "old school" ones were all wild caught and nasty (mostly sumatrans) and this is where they got there reputation. The "new school" captive bred ones are much more laid back for the most part. The sumatrans (P. curtus) definitely seem to be a lot more flightly then the borneo's (P. breitensteini) or the malaysians (P.brongersmai). Awesome animals though . . . and for the one's that ARE mean . . . i really can't blame an animal shaped like a turd for being mean . . . hahah! :lol:

i got a large adult female this summer . . . a sweet heart!

sorry about the photo . . . i used my iphone!

Sorry about that MJ - just thinking out loud.

Nice blood you have there melas. Yeah, mine is real sedentary and doesn't move around too much. He can put a squeeze on you though and he's still small. Males don't get as big as females so that's good in my case. Mine isn't snippy much at all. I try to spend plenty time with him as well and that always helps.

Really beautiful snakes.

Yeah they are certainly not the most entertaining to watch! I actually feel bad for them when the move . . . it's funny how they kind of drag their tails!

Yeah just wait until your's starts to color up here in the next few years. I think you are going to have a looker! Mine is getting ready to shed and the pic was taken in a dark basement but she is REALLY red!
