    Are you ready for kevin?

    This was a very difficult choice as I was debating between a potential Pokigron, BC and also a Brisbane, Coasty.

    Having had to re-home my insulant retic, Wallace, there was an opening for another animal. A deal that I simply couldn't pass up fell into my lap. There was a big push from JMCrook on this one as well. (Thank you sir) He and I were dabbling with the Brisbane idea at the same time, but I didn't feel ready to move.

    Then he got his animal and we started communicating more and more. I felt replacing a male python that was very arboreal, with another male python that displays similar behaviors was a good more.

    The really nice part, other than the price for an animal with this genetic package, was the fact that this snake (Kevin) is a September 2017 animal.

    I'm skipping some of the baby snake stuff and I'm OK with that.

    I could go on and on. BIG thanks to Nick Mutton at Inland Reptile. What an all around great guy, and excellent keeper/breeder.

    Let's just say hello to my new friend, Kevin.

    His specs.


    Here's Kevin's lineage:


    Federal Express caught me off guard. They popped in an hour earlier than the delivery estimate. I was plenty OK with that.


    I do this with new snakes and it has worked well. No bites from this guy. The "Acclimation Branch".

    Our first interaction was wonderful. So far the generalizations made about the species being mellow hold true.


    Going near my hand without fear.


    Nice head, a bit blurry here. He's a mover!


    Thanks for checking out Kevin!

    You picked the winning ticket there, brother! Love to see that hes still got some of the darker coloration in the latter 1/3 even with being 50% hypo blood. Looking incredibly forward to updates on Kevin!

    I am too. I initially wanted a "normal" but Nick made this deal too sweet to pass up. This guy will be 3 years old in September so I'm dealing with a fairly confident animal.

    Nick told me if I could imagine the "perfect, most beautiful normal" it would be this.

    I dig him so far and am surprised how "retic like" his behavior is in certain aspects.

    I'll get some photos when he's settled a bit.

    He's a stunning snake for sure! Should make a great display animal as well as a fantastic pet.

    OH HELL YEAH!!!!

    Awesome pickup my man!!!!! Kevin is a handsome dude!! His colors are awesome. I dig the hypo a lot, it's beautiful, especially once they lighten up towards the front but maintain the dark back section.

    Fernie is in shed, I'm expecting Wed or Thurs night. I can't wait to see her new colors.


    I'll be keeping my eyes on this thread for sure!!!

    Congrats!!!
