    Hello everyone,
    My name is Derek Roddy and I'm a blackheaded python breeder in South Florida.
    I've seen some questions regarding BHPs here on the forum and thought I'd post some of my collection for you to see. Some of you may have seen my stuff on other forums as well.

    This has got to be one of the cleanest BHPs I've ever produced....or, seen for that matter.

    And, here's hoping for more Hypos this year...

    Anyway, if anyone has any questions about them....fire em off. I'll be happy to answer them.

    Cheers and happy herping.

    Those guys are really cool!
    How big of enclosures do they need? What temps do they like?

    Hi, beautiful snakes and well done for successfully breeding them, I didn`t even know they were available outside Oz until now (I lead a very sheltered life)! ;)

    They are beautiful. I'll be looking for the answers to enclosure and personality too.

    That one with the solid dorsal stripe is awesome. Don't think I've seen one like that before.

    Do you know the reason for an all black head?

    It is theorized that the black head enables the snake to warm its entire body by sticking just its head outside its burrows.
    Sort of like their own solar heating panel

    Those snakes look amazing. I had never even heard of them until now.

    OMG!

    Please answer the questions about Size of Habitat, Personality/ Handling temperment, and eventual snake size.

    I've been admiring these for awhile, and been itching for one for about a year. -_- I smell a purchase in my future...

    You're going to have to do that research yourself. The OP has been banned.
