    Congrats on your awesome newcomer!
    The one thing I found that you can count on about Balls is that they are consistent about their inconsistentcy.

    From what I understand carpets are a lot more busy and entertaining than GTPs.

    Don't get me wrong they, GTPs are beautiful but if you love your Bredli, a nice Brisy coastal will be wonderful.

    Just do it!!

    Thanks, bud. I gave him a day off and yesterday he picked right back up where we left off. I knew I was ready too.

    Tonight I fed him another rat pup. Good to see him maintain his schedule. He was moving around comfortably afterwards so I will get his weight again next week and decide if I go up in size or not.

    Yes, Reinz has done a great job documenting his coastals. Your pics of your Bredli helped solidify my choice!

    I think you got me mixed up. I don't have a Bredli.

    Just a mutt coasty.

    I am trying to get you to score a Brisbane coastal from Nick so I can live vicariously through you LOL!

    I have had 2 GTP's !!

    And they are anything but boring

    I was fortunate enough to be able to pick mine up in person at "Ophiological Services" in Florida. Back when the Bessettes still had mostly GTP's. Their facility was simply amazing. So clean you could eat off the floor. Beautiful setups. And a LOT of little GTP hatchlings.

    They made me clean all the hatchling GTP's tubs. hahaha!!! Great way to pick out your favorite. That is where I got my first bite!! Funny enough out of those many hatchlings, only one snapped at me. Of course it didn't hurt. They are truly TEEEENY tiny!!

    I was only going to get one, but I couldn't decide between a canary yellow one and a deep burgundy red one, so I got them both. They are so much fun to observe. They do not hide. They are draped over a branch and are stunning to look at. In the evening they "hunt".

    To watch the babies change colors from the yellow/red to green is amazing.

    Both of mine were 100% tame from the get go. Easy to handle. You just have to be extremely careful with the little ones, oh so fragile! You don't just pick them off of a branch. Rather what you do is put your hand sideways (as if you were to ask a bird to "step up") and then use your hand as a branch. You come from underneath and gently nudge the GTP from the branch onto your hand, replacing the branch with your hand. They will then loosen their coils and let you move your hand in between, while they will also start moving onto your hand.

    Removable branches are a must, makes maintenance so easy.

    Never ever EVER reach into the enclosure in the evening/at night. Its sort of funny. You stand in front of their enclosure and they just "sit there". Then you blink and they are closer. Then you blink and they are right there, on the other side of the glass.

    I didn't handle mine as much as the Ball Pythons, but when I did, they were not difficult to handle at all. Not as fast or flighty as some snakes can be. They do have long teeth (to be able to catch birds and bite through feathers) but mine never bit me so I can't tell you how bad it would be. For people enjoying "display" cages and living art, they are a must!

    But then, so are many others

    No, I know. What's funny is that the quote you have is from me writing back to Ziggy. But I did write back to you right after about the GTP and Brisy. I wonder if you saw that because it is now not showing in the thread. Strange, I did switch from the phone to the computer so perhaps it didn't stick but the quote you have is definitely a response to Zig.

    Alright, second attempt, this was basically my first response to you:

    I agree, a Brisy would be the logical next choice. Last week at the reptile shop there was a green GTP adult that had my wife walking backwards. They seem to have that "don't mess with me look" even while hanging motionless.

    If Nick has his 2016s around much longer I might have to pick one up. Definite locks for 3m beauties!
