Kofiau Island

This is a newly found form of green tree python.  It is reportedly from the island of Kofiau which is part of the Boo Islands.  It is situated north of Misool Island off the western coast of Papua.  According to reports, some of these specimens retain the yellow color throughout their lives.  In our experience some do develop a few green scales scattered over the body and some develop a light green "wash" over the entire body.  These typically have bright yellow eyes and some animals develop lavender dorsal and tail markings. The throat and ventral scales of the neck also display yellow coloration.  Scattered white scales can also be found on some individuals.  Only time will tell if these incredible looking snakes actually retain these bright yellow colors throughout adulthood.  We have acquired a small group of these unique animals and hope to be producing offspring in 2006.


Female ID# 04153

Indonesian Import

This female is a young adult and I'm hoping to try a breeding project with her in 2006.

In January 2006 we began pairing this girl with our male 04156.  Below are a couple images from the initial breeding attempts.

    

We bred this female to Gary Schiavino's black headed Canary male 06013 in 2007.  She produced a clutch of 13 eggs on 21 June 2007.  Click here to view images of the female and her clutch.

This female is being paired with male 05031 in 2008.  It looks as though she has ovluated around 15 April 08.  She laid a clutch of 17 eggs on 27 May 08.  Click here to see images of the female and the clutch. 

This female is being bred to a locality cross (Sorong x Biak) male, ID# 02100, in 2009.  She laid a clutch of 16 eggs on 27 May 2009.  Click here to see images of the female and the clutch.
