    There was a time when it was believed impossible to keep diamond pythons alive in captivity, good luck to you. Please be generous with your new found knowledge regardless of success.

    There has been some headway made on them. I know a few people who have had their's going for years - one of which had them for 5 years before selling, and managed to get a cbb clutch from them at one point (poor hatch rate). Like most snakes of this nature, the real challenge is getting ones that are healthy enough to make the transition. I have no doubt that there will be more captive breedings occurring in the near future, so hopefully the offspring won't be as fragile and prone to stress. Right now I'm working with four females, which were in captivity for a month before being sent from Germany to the US. I've only had them for a few days, so it's a bit early to tell how they'll hold up. I am following the direction given by the only known captive breeder, though, so hopefully they'll do well.

    Re: Xenodermus javanicus

    Goldfish in the video. I'm about to set up tanks of various guppies/minnows for breeding, and a tadpole tank to quarantine them for a while before feeding. I'm hoping to ramp up dart frog production so that I can get a steady supply of those to offer as food, but it's just fish in the meantime.

    Btw, where in Louisiana are you located?

    Hammond. I live about 20 mins from Sean & Tim.

    I would avoid minnows, goldfish and a few other species due to thiaminase. In the long run it'll kill the snake.

    Cool, I'm about 5 minutes from Tim lol

    Definitely don't plan on feeding any of those exclusively - hoping to get them on a mostly frog diet. Thanks for the heads up. Also, I'm beyond jealous of the Rhino Viper.

    Re: Xenodermus javanicus

    Unfortunately I don't have a permit yet. I'm working on a ~500sq.ft. herp room, separated from my house. Once that's done I'd like to add a rhino, gaboon, and eyelash viper.

    I'll have to hit you up for some feeders - I typically just bulk order online, but I need a few things that don't justify an entire shipment just yet.
    When you get ready to get your permit let me know and I'll work with you so you can get the required hours. Rhinos and Gaboons are awesome, just deserve a lot more respect than most people give them. They mistake tolerant for docile and those bites can leave permanent damage. I don't have any eyelash vipers, but I do have more squams coming, I love those things.

    I was going to mention the goldfish but someone has already mentioned it. Good luck with these!
