This is the female of the pair we got today. She is smaller and calmer than Zuko. Unfortunately the previous owner was out of town for a few days and only got back just before we came by to see them and Mai had had a terrible shed while he was gone and he didn't have time to help her with it before we came by. So she got a sauna as soon as we got home. These are terrible covered in stuck shed pictures and out of focus to boot but hopefully we can get some decent ones of her soon.

Ah! I love these snakes. ATB's are one of my favourites, I hope to own one some day (when I have the room for an arboreal enclosure!!)

Nice! Is this one going to turn green?

No, those are Green Tree pythons that turn green. These should stay more or less about what they look like right now.

One of these days... One of these days. So many snakes I need to get when I get a bigger place, the ATB is near the top of the list. One of my favorite snakes, I love the way they ribbon their body and dangle off of things. Plus they have some of the most evil looking heads/faces.

Glad these two ended up in your hands. Not sure about the seller, but it always pains me a little to see a snake with so much stuck/dry/broken shed.

Mai finally got all of that horrible stuck shed off, so I grabbed some pictures today. Was having a terrible time getting all of her in focus, so still not super great pictures but tons better than those first ones!

Just want to know what the temperament are on these guys. I don't mind the biting and all that, just want to know first hand from a keeper of them how they are?

I've heard of some that are puppy dog tame but most are not. They are fun snakes, so intelligent and aware. But I wouldn't suggest getting one unless you don't mind being bitten regularly or of having to be on guard against being bitten.

Oh I'm jealous. Yours is prettier than mine. My girl is yellow with a light chocolatey pattern. My Garden male is much nicer than she is.

In my group of potato snakes, meaning calm lazy and "tame" the amazons are a thrill. Every time I spot clean, clean their water or any time I have to interact with them I just keep saying "I love you don't bite me" while they stare me down.
