    So I've been combating a mystery skin affliction since February and I think it's FINALLY gone!!!


    After Shed One:


    This is the second shed since this issue appeared. And he looks better than ever. He just finished shedding yesterday so I immediately cleaned his enclosure and soaked him in betadine.

    This was at least a pound of poop, and his perfect shed. Not too much of a mess this time.

    This is his vent after his shed in March. You can see his vent is still irritated.

    This is his vent yesterday! Perfect! There's a pink tinge, but he always has this after he sheds. It'll be gone in a few days.


    His lateral scales are all healed.

    A little blurry, but his central ventral scales are all healed.

    Monty reacts to head toweling the same way my dog does. He seems to enjoy it.

    He's 15 to 20 years old. :) I'm his third owner but this is his forever home. Right now he weighs about 70 pounds. He's still a little underweight. He came to me weighing 23 pounds about a year ago. He's 15 feet and as sweet as he can be. :)

    very nice snake, 23 LBS for such long snake is animal cruelty... The burmese is on my wishlist but the only problem are the costs and the enclosure size, when i buy a burmese i dont know which is more beautiful the albino or normal(i like those which are lighter in colours) cuz i don't think i will buy both:) .. I hope Monty a long life :D ... if you use Yahoo Messeger / Skype add my ID: calynutzu_4u

    His last owner definitely loved him a lot. He just fell on hard times and Monty ended up spending about 8 months in a 30 gallon sterilite container. Honestly, albino morphs of any snake species are going to be harder to take care of. They have much more sensitive skin. :(

    If you're serious about a Burmese, or any large constrictor for that matter, you had better act quickly. They're being outlawsd left and right.

    in EU i think it's not a problem because we dont have exotic reptiles released in the wild such in Forida, I am only almost 19 years old(16th July) and I am living with my family, first of all let them use to the size of and adult female boa and then i will see what i do, i didn't find a lot of the color pattern of adult burmese(i think like all snakes they tend to darken in colours and i think they won't be so beautiful like in the first couple of years as they grow) that's why i think i will buy an albino
    i like these color patters
    and the caramel albino

    not these ones

    if you cross albino x normal = 50% normal het albino but they will have lighten colours like this python ?
