Carpet Pythons Available Now!
year was really light due to our facility move, but I got really lucky with the
three clutches that I did produce. Bullwinkle, the 50% Irian Jaya Jaguar
pictured above, produced two smoking clutches of 75% IJ Jaguars this year.

75% Irian Jaya Jaguars
This 75% Irian Jaya
Jaguar is about 11 months old in the photo and already a stunning example of
what can be accomplished through selective breeding of the Jaguar gene.
His pedigree goes back to my GQ line and my original striped Jaguar.
My 75% Irian Jaya Jaguars were produced by breeding a male 50% Irian Jaya
Jaguar (the infamous "Bullwinkle") to a number of pure female Irian Jayas.
In addition to a smaller adult size, the Irian Jaya Jaguars also seem to have
richer color and a further reduced pattern...as well as that popular pinstripe
running down the back.
For 2008, I used the same male
(Bullwinkle), but I bred him to my original Gary Quirk (GQ) female and one of my
GQ x Wild Caught productions from 2004. Both clutches are doing great, but
I've decided to hang onto them a little longer in order to see how they turn out
(some look pretty unusual).

This new website
is a joint project between myself and Reptiles by
Andrew Hare. The idea started
about four years ago to build an extensive carpet python resource website.
We decided to install forums several months ago and now that the resource website is nearing
completion, we've decided to launch the forums and get things rolling.
