The word "reticulated" means "net-like" and refers to the beautiful network pattern on these big Southeast Asian snakes. They are often killed for their skins when found in the wild.

In 2004, we acquired 5.5 pure Super Dwarf Reticulated Pythons from a Canadian breeder.. The parents of these animals are extremely tiny by Reticulated Python standards. At 5-6 years of age, they ranged from 5 - 6.5 feet in length, about the size of a Carpet Python. The babies are about 1/2 the size of a normal Retic hatchling.

I am currently working with a group of Dwarf & Super Dwarf reticulated pythons that are from an insular, Island population that are much smaller and will not attain the large size of the mainland Reticulated Python. I am working with genetic morphs that will be bred into these smaller animals.

What started out as a childhood interest and then a hobby, has become an addiction over the years. In the late 1980's, we were breeding burmese pythons and various colubrids. Since then, we have kept several species of reptiles. By 2002, our collection had outgrown our house. It was then that we decided to purchase a 3500 sq. ft. building. With this new facility, we now have more control over the environment our animals are kept in. This also gives us room to expand and increase our collection. This business has given us the opportunity to work with something we love.

More Info.
Reticulated Pythons By: Bob Clark (some info on Dwarfs)

I like snakes. Actually, I love snakes. Bigger is better, and that's one reason why I've got so many retics. Reticulated pythons are arguably the largest of all snakes. As far as I'm concerned, that's a large part of their appeal. In the last few years, more and more people have come to share my feelings about these incredible animals.
