    Nick, Michael, and a friend of theirs were the first three in the USA to obtain Rockhampton locality coastal carpets. I believe that original group of animals imported to the US was hatched around 2006-07. So the parents are currently 12-13yrs old, F2 cbb, making the 2019 hatchies F3 cbb.

    Dad.
    Both Nick and Michael seem to say this northern locality stays a bit smaller than other coastal carpets, reaching around 7í give or take. Also lighter bodied when compared to southern localities like Brisbane.
    Without further ado, here is the newest member of the herd at my place.


    Typical baby carpet attitude. Bit me probably at least 9 times before I got her into her tub but didnít even break the skin. Sheís in shed so probably wonít attempt a first feeding until she completes shed cycle. Was told sheís on large mice pinks and can move up to fuzzies soon.
    Super pumped to finally be working with Morelia. I feel like this decision was overdue by about 15yrs haha

    I wish I had my phone with me last night. Jewel was all perched up similar to this picture. This shot is a couple of years old.


    She's much bigger now but I think she's topped off. She hasn't shed in ages.

    You will really enjoy your full time cage with that one.

    Carpets are great display snakes.

    Not as active as retics, but you will see them doing something on most days.

    I'm honored to have been the first to know brother!

    Welcome to Team Morelia.

    Glad to have you on board!


    Also, I'd love to see more pictures of your snake.

    Honestly I feel like Aussie pythons are different than all of other pythons. They, IMO seem actually social.

    Once theses guys are acclimated to their new environment, they seem to adjust and thrive.

    Once I scored my Coastal , I was not able to pick a favorite snake here. I was completely dedicated to my locality boa.

    I think the perfect collection is a mix of boas and carpets.

    JM scored here and he as a LOCALITY snake. which is very rare in the carpet world

    There are very few breeders that focus on the Mother Nature animals.

    JM, you have something special!

    Thatís exactly why I picked her, Gio. Even though I donít have any immediate aspirations of breeding my animals Iíve come to greatly appreciate ďMother NatureísĒ paint jobs in recent years. Thereís something special to me about keeping an animal that is very close to its representation in the wild that strikes a chord with me.
    Makes me think back to how things were when I started keeping ~25yrs ago when you could only get normals and maybe albinos of any given species. I still think morphs/mutations are amazing but have shifted my personal focus to keeping more locality specific animals.
    As Iím typing this sheís coming out of her hide, hopefully to shed, as her eyes have cleared up. Will post more pics soon post shed/first feeding

    I love to look up pictures of carpets in their natural, or in some cases, man made environments.

    You'll see them perched in trees, hanging off gutters on a home and up in the structure beams of a tin shed.

    They seem to adapt well to change and their are a fair amount of folks from "Down Under" that actually appreciate having these guys around their homes from what I've read. Free pest control!

    This would be pretty cool to see right out of your door.

    Seeing your girl perched made me think of this for some reason!

    Oh yeah! She's off to a great start! I hope it only gets better. I just noticed her sweet head stamp too!
