    Default Candoia sp.

    Anyone keeping any candoia? I got my first candoias this weekend.
    1.1 Candoia paulsoni tasmai and 1.0 Candoia aspera.

    Very happy so far. Try to get them to breed next year.

    I do and love them. I have Candoia carinata paulsoni.





    Tough to get started on mice, but taking readily now. Was a rescue, but I was just looking for one when it came to me.

    female went off feed for almost a year solid and just randomly decided to pick back up and strong. eats a large mouse every week like clock work. male is being super picky so..?

    I've got an adult candoia carinata paulsoni female and I love her to pieces. Awesome temperament and tears up rats and mice like no tomorrow.




    And one of her babies
