    Re: New blood on the 1st.

    The first day I put the substrate in there it was moist but I let it dry out some. I do try to keep some moisture in there and she has access to water. She hides most of the time and I have spend a few minuets a day handling her some but I leave her alone for the most part. She is doing well with handling but gets stressed if I hold her to long right now so keeping it short. 2 to 3 minuets at a time. She is awesome and calm for a blood.

    Btw nice looking snake. I would get one too but they are just too chunky for me.

Richard Crowley's book(which is a must have short-tail/blood keepers imo), and The Blood Cell to name a couple sources. In the book, he talks about the existence of naturally occurring hybrids between the Sumatran Shortail and the Sumatran Blood pythons because their territories overlap. A Blood python(brongersmai) can come from Sumatra, which might be why the OP was told his was Sumatran. This is not my opinion, nor am I any kind of expert, but this info comes from people that have spent decades keeping, researching , and breeding them.

    That is not a sumatran. It is either a borneo or a blood, sumatrans are much darker in color.
