December
25
The last two juvenile from the September 29 litter started eating today (a real Christmas meal..). I didn´t worry to much that they didn´t eat over the last three months because they´re relative large.
The beautiful red one bought on the Snakeday turned out to be a problemfree eater.

Two out of six from the October 25 litter did eat. 
The other four are not interested yet.

 
November
24
I bought a breeding couple Morelia Bredli from Frank.
Beautiful animals!
 
November
13
Both females started eating again after delivery; 
Female 03.09 after 30 - and female 4.10 after 20 days.
 
October

I allways make pictures of all juvenile. This is an easy way to monitor the colour change after several sheddings. This one (born on October 25) suffered a lot of stress during the photosession. He turned on his back and showed his belly. This behaviour is described by several species but I never heard of Corallus using this defence strategy..
October
25
Female 04.10 produced offspring today. The score is: 
6 juvenile and 9 dead. The juvenile are relatively large and divers in colour. The dead animals all have their colour and markings so they must have died over the last days.

One of the juvenile shed his skin immediately after being born. Remarkeble, I never saw this before...

October
19
I´m working on my terraria. For that reason I did put my oldest couple Morelia viridis together for a short period of time with immediate mating as a result.
I saw matings on 12,  16 and 18 October.

October
11
I sold an adult male (03.13) on the international Snakeday in Houten. He did produce several litters and I kept some offspring for future breeding programs.
I found a beautiful red juvenile on sale on the Snakeday. This little one is only 2,5 weeks old and probably a female. I decided to buy her although she didn´t eat yet. 

September
30
Pregnant female 04.10 refused food again. She had here last meal on August 9. Promising behaviour..  
September
29
Female 03.09 did give birth to nine relative large juvenile today. They´re all yellow with orange saddles. What a site to see..  beautiful animals reacting very alert!
September
04
Pregnant female 04.10 stopt eating. She had her last meal on August 10. Over the last weeks I find het a lot on top of the heating bulb. Looking at her size I expect a large litter. 
July
23
Both females are pregnant. Their colour changed over the last weeks to a darker red and their belly grew over the months. 

Opposite you see female 04.10. She remains a regular eater. Normally she eats 6-8 weeks old rats, but during pregnancy I offer here rats of 3-4 weeks old. These are accepted without hesitation.
 

July 
23
This is female 03.09. In contrast with the pregnant female 04.10 she doesn't eat much during here pregnancy. She ate two rats (three week old) since Februari 10. I don't find her on the hot spot as much as the other female. 

This female did give birth two a litter in 2007 after a pregnancy of ten months. (see logbook 2007).

The photo show Corallus 07.04. I bought this animal, just a few weeks old, on the Snakeday 2007. It was a poor eater over the first year, but the eating improved over the last few months. Consequence of this poor eating is that the animal has the size of a nine months old Corallus.

Very young animals sometimes show the typical balling posture (better known from Python regius). I never saw a two year old animal show this behaviour.
 

March
10
Both couples are seperated again tonight. After Id did put together two and a half week ago just a few matings were seen.  
February
22
I did put both couples together again tonight  
February
15
Over the las week I saw both couples mate five times. The last two days they don't show any interrest. I decided to seperate them for a week.
 
February
08
I introduced the males numbers 15 and 20 to the ladies. Both did mate within a few hours.   
January

This year I'll try to breed with two couples.
See under " breeding" for the details.
