On the Twelfth Day of Snakes...

On the twelfth day of Snakes

I bring to thee

Those in the genus most dear to me...

The Liasis genus is one that I am particularly passionate about. The natural beauty of these patternless snakes is second to none for me.

I will start off with an adult male of the smallest subspecies within the genus; Savu Pythons (Liasis mackloti savuensis). At hatching, they are typically pale orange in coloration and as they mature turn a dark chocolate brown. Adult's eyes also turn white. My adult female has maintained some of her orange, but she was being camera shy.

The next one up is a Water Python (Liasis fuscus) of the New Guinea locale. This is one that hatched here this past sseason.

Third up, and the adult size continues to increase as we go here, is a Macklot's Python (Liasis mackloti). This is my adult male.

And last but certainly not least, is an Olive Python (Liasis olivaceus olivaceus). This is one of the babies that hatched here this past season as well.


And these conclude this year's edition of the 12 Days of Snakes.

I wish you all a happy holiday season!
