Calabar Burrowing Pythons- any experience?

Hello all!

I have recently become fascinated with Calabar pythons/west African Burrowing Pythons and was wondering if anyone had any experience with them? All that I have read says that the wild caught specimens most often seen in the trade are exceedingly difficult to get started.

I have not gotten any yet as I am just beginning to look into them but does anyone know of someone who is working with them? Can anyone give me some tips or insight?

Try the Facebook group "Rare and Uncommon Reptile Discussion Group", a few people in it keep them.

Thanks, I have seen that ad a time or too. Still looking into husbandry. I've heard they are difficult, especially feeding.

Like I said, mike at outback has had cb hatchlings so he could probably help you will care of young and stuff like that.

There’s not much info on them as there not really something that people are looking to breed and people just get WC imports when they can.
