Those eyes are enchanting... one of the nicest if not THE nicest spotted I have seen so far!
Do you have Childreni as well?

Cheers Sra,

Nah, just the spotted mate, never been a fan of the childreni as they tend to lose their markins with age.
I would’nt think that this locality specific form of the Spotteds would be easily available over there or are they?

HAHA....

If this tells you anything, I didn’t even know that Maculosa HAD different locales.
Just like the Womas here, localities are not kept in check... kinda wish they were. I’ve seen some on aussie forums that just blow these american ones out of the water!

That’s a shame, womas here have such a variance in their size colouration and traits depending on the localities they come from. 90% of Aussies keep locality specific specimen, we’re pedantic like that lol. We like keeping bloodline pure and tend to not get swept up in the whole "morph" mentality, if anything most of us are totally against it. The variance in the traits and colouration of most Oz native snakes is so great due to their large range that most of us make a conscious decision to try and preserve that, whether for future studies, pride or preservation of something that someday may be re-classified as a separate sub-species.

I commend you by the way for your comment on "mutts" on the carpet forum, wish more keepers shared the same view as you over there.

Well how do you think I felt when I found out that snake in particular wasn’t what it was sold to me as! I kept waiting for her color to come in, guess that’ll never happen lol.
I so wish I could move to OZ, there are so many places I would like to see and so many animals I would love to catch out in the wild, study and then release. Aussie pythons are my favorites, Olives, carpets, womas, blackheads, antaresia... if only I wasn’t sitting on so many boas I could have more room for pythons. Of course with all the legislation here it’s hard considering new animals.
I only have a few "morphs"... the rest are pure (pure as the supplier says they are ) boa localities. I love the classic wild looks of different animals, but on the other hand I do have a couple morphs here and there... just for kicks.
