    Jungle Carpet or Bredli Carpet

    I want another snake and since I already have a ball python I want to go a bit bigger.I heard Jungles and Bredlis stay 6-8 feet and since they are semi-arboreal they won't be as thick as say a ball python.So the question is, which would you prefer a Jungle Carpet or a Bredli Carpet?

    Well as I just said in your other post, my next snake is a jungle carpet, maybe a coastal carpet. I have to get some hands on experience with an adult before I decide. Luckily I a good friend of mine has a good friend who keeps a few and produces a few clutches a year. So at my friends wedding this summer I hopefully will be meeting the breeder of my next snake.

    I said Jungle because I just like them And I have one! I can't fairly say I wouldn't like Bredli Carpets just as much, though. I've never met one.

    Re: Jungle Carpet or Bredli Carpet

    Both! They are both great pythons, so it is hard to pick one (at least for me). Guess it depends on what kind of attributes you want in a carpet python. Jungles are smaller, but they tend to be a bit more high strung, while bredli get to be 8 ft, but are very placid and mellow as adults. Jungles can have beautiful yellow and black patterns, which is very visually appealing, while breldi can have some awesome reds and creams that I enjoy. The bredli will also change colors to some degree lightening and darkening with various temps, seasons, and maybe moods. Jungles often prefer to eat only mice, while bredli will eat ANYTHING! They are both relatively easy to keep and breed, but bredli take a little longer to mature. The decision is just too hard for me, so I have lots of both. Make sure you get something that you really like and good luck.

    Re: Jungle Carpet or Bredli Carpet

    Jungle if your prepared to keep humidity above 50%

    Bredl's if you want a hardier snake with no high humidity requirments.

    Both snakes are awesome, I plan on getting a bredl's for my next snake.

    Bredli's are great snakes, so laid back. Their colors are great too, they have some of the best looking, deep red tones in them. Beautiful!

    Re: Jungle Carpet or Bredli Carpet

    I keep bredli and jungles the same as far as humidity is concerned. I don't think my humidity gets above 20% in my very dry state (UT). No shed issues with jungles. Balls on the other hand will have minor shed issues at my place from time to time, depending on the cage, but carpets very seldom to never.

    Re: Jungle Carpet or Bredli Carpet

    I am leaning toward bredli but I heard they are a bit heavily bodied compared to other carpets and is this true?Because my dad says nothing over 5 ft. but since carpets are so slender you do not really notice how long they actually are(loophole.)

    Re: Jungle Carpet or Bredli Carpet

    I've posted these pics before and I'd love to do so again. Same day, and set up as you'll be able to tell.






    The jungle is a Will Bird animal from 08 and the Bredli is from a breeder with the initials CP. Only information I got on him besides claims to be "high cream." Bredli has went to a personal friends collection and is thriving very well. Jungle is staying here with me until I am completely consumed by the chondro bug. If the Bredli would not have went to people I talk with on a weekly basis I would have regretted my decision very much to let him go.

    Both are great animals as long as they are quality. Please see Nick Mutton's collection of Bredli at inlandreptile.com. You will not be disappointed. Justin has some very nice stuff as well. I've spent a bit of time familiarizing my self with his site over the past few months.
