    Recieved my first Apodora Papuana Female

    So I just received my first Apodora from Joe Switalski with JS Reptiles. Great guy. I am super pumped to have the privilege of owning one of these amazing critters.

    The one thing I found that you can count on about Balls is that they are consistent about their inconsistentcy.

    Re: Recieved my first Apodora Papuana Female

    I'm guessing between 2 and 3 years old. She is an import so it is hard to tell. I have to go off of her size.

    Re: Recieved my first Apodora Papuana Female

    She's gorgeous Rage. I'm loving her shimmering iridescence . Keep the pictures flowing with this one. I've had a yearling male Australian Olive for about 6 months and he's quickly becoming one of my favorites. Like your girl, he's very nice to handle. The biggest difference I've noticed so far between the 2 Olive species is the shorter snouts on the Papuanas. The size and coloration are pretty similar. I'm very curious to see other similarities and differences as they grow.

    Yeah the head structure is completely different. But other than that they seem similar.

    Head shape is interesting in these papuans. This quote is part of Dave's response to a question sent to VPI. Link below for full version.
    The Papuan pythons from the eastern half of New Guinea are bigger and have a longer head than the Papuans from the Western Papua end of New Guinea. I haven't seen specimens from Biak, but the few Misool animals I have seen look the same as the Western Papuan specimens from the Sorong area that are the variety most commonly encountered in captivity.
