Check out my new Borneo! I got her on Oct 25 and she weighed in at 103g. She's a normal x marble and was born June 6. I don't know what to name her yet..

Out of the 3 females I picked from, she was the smallest (only slightly) but had the nicest patterns/colours. I'm hoping that her size when young doesn't dictate her adult size cuz I want a big fat girl lol I'm gonna start her on a 6 day feeding cycle with rat fuzzies/pups.

Already a little stocky at her size




She has such doofus eyes!

Nice animal definitely fun to work with if they're anything like my blood was:D.Just be careful with the feeding, blood pythons are prone to obesity in captivity.

sorry for all the late replies!!!

Dyn, I love them because of their short fat bodies haha girth of a giant without the size.

Novak, I usually shoot with a D300 but my dad took it to china for a couple weeks so I was shooting with a D40 and 17-55/2.8 for those pics.

jere, I've heard of their tempers but this one has been a real sweetie. I'm handling her for a few minutes about 2-3 times a week to condition her to be used to human interaction. I actually had a BCI that was way more nervous (snapped at me once) than my borneo : P I guess it depends on the individual.

I didn't mean they were aggressive.For the most part they're not anymore.The reason they have that reputation I think is because they're just recently being bred a good amount.Before most of them were imported and a little bit more than grumpy now most of them are CB so aggression is not that big of a problem.

Yeah mine's CB : ) And she's a borneo.. They're supposed to be nicer than the bloods. I hope to pick up a couple albino bloods in the future though to start a project. There's not many people working with short tails in Canada at the moment..
