    WOW! I love "Grizzly" - I've never seen one speckled like that!

    I can see why you would want to focus on that species - they are absolutely GORGEOUS!

    Thanks for sharing :)

    Is Grizzly going to remain speckled like that or is it a transitional coloration?

    Thanks Merlin.

    he is a nice fellow, isn´t he? and has a funny story.

    I saw him in the (11th October 09) Snakeday show in Houten, The Netherlands, and he was priced really low for a HY tricolor GTP, because he was a terrible feeder that would only eat every 2-3 months and after lots of teasing, so the English seller said.
    The seller also told me he didn´t remember if he had eaten for the last time in August or September.

    I didn´t worry about that at all and grabbed him before somebody else did. He was around 1,1kgs (very big, for a male) so he had been eating enough anyway.

    He didn´t eat at my home for around 4 months and I didn´t worry (breeding season). I kept ofering every other week, with different techniques. I noticed that if I teased him he would retract; if I just showed him the mouse and pulled away, he would show interest and move forward towards the prey. So, he was a "chaser" !

    Then, one day (mid February) he decided to eat again, just like that: I showed the mouse and he seemed interested; I pulled the mouse away a few inches and he did a perfect strike and constriction.

    From that on he resumed eating. Now he eats like there´s no tomorrow on a clockwork schedule: every 14 days; 1 to 2 jumbo/xl mice.
    And he doesn´t eat more because I don´t offer him.

    So, I´m very happy with my "cheap terrible feeder"...
