    2018 0.1 Brisbane Coastal Carpet Progression

    Hatched 7/25/18 by Nick Mutton. Arrived safe and sound at 9:50am, though understandably nervous and defensive. Not many pics yet as I want to settle her in before working with her too much.


    Pick sent to me by Nick


    Right out of the box


    Love her pattern and colors. That lateral stripe and blotched back pattern is so beautiful


    Nailed me three times on the fingers and twice on the forearm. Well get her settled down in time.

    That's a very attractive phlebotomist, by the way.

    Great new additions, must like the taste of your hands. Should soon settle with some careful handling sessions

    I was lucky enough to be getting realtime updates from JM. I'm not only excited for him, but very envious as that beauty is in my top 3 list.

    The little love bites come with the territory, and JM being a former retic man, was not likely phased by them. They do however appear to be a tad more than what a hatchy delivers.

    I'll be very anxious to see the progression of this animal. A PURE locality, Brisbane, Coastal.

    Congrats sir!

    JM gave me a heads up last night to look for a thread today. He kept the secret so I was stoked to see, I knew it would be good... and he DID NOT DISAPPOINT!!!!

    I'm waiting a while before adding anything new, but I'll be eagerly watching this thread.

    Definitely more intense and hard, clamping delivery of a bite from this one than previous or current critters here. Honestly I only got tagged by the retics a couple times including a full bite and wrap from one of them at ~6', but the carpet bites aren't bad, though they are definitely more plentiful haha! Being a year and half old though, yes, her love bites are much more impactful than my Rockhampton's bites who's only barely drawn blood once.

    This is very likely going to be my last addition for sometime given current events and how that will change the economy and life in general. It's tempting to get a male to pair with her down the road, but with how spending habits may change for many folks I'm not sure how I feel about bringing more animals into the world that there might not be much of a demand for.

    I just kind of selfishly had a "treat yo self" moment recently for a bday/job promotion and couldn't resist another carpet python. In Nick Mutton's words when on the phone with him the other night, "Have you ever opened a can of pringles, eaten one, and then put the lid back on? NO! IT IS FUNCTIONALLY IMPOSSIBLE! That's how carpet pythons are!"

    Looking very forward to growing this animal up.

    This species is really wonderful. I think for folks that are somewhat curious about reticulated pythons, but don't want to deal with the size or the possible aggressive tendencies of a male retic, a coastal or bredli carpet may fit the bill.

    JM scored here and I'll bet there are many exciting updates on the horizon.
