Topic: Jampea Dwarf Reticulated Python

This one snake has totally changed my wife's attitude from just putting up with  snakes to actually liking a couple of them!!!!

For that this snake is "PRICELESS"

Yeah I really LOVE Retics.  I can't keep one, toooo much snake for me! Love their colors, patterns & irridescence.

I'm about to have an abruptly.

Re: Jampea Dwarf Reticulated Python

Russell, I hope this doesn't come off the wrong way but I just have to ask. Are you sure that's a Jamp? All of the Jamps I've ever seen, both in pictures and in person, have had a rather distinctive look. In fact, all the true dwarf locales I've seen have all had a different kind of look from their normal mainland counterparts. This one is gorgeous to be sure, but it doesn't look like a dwarf to me based on the color (not silver enough) or pattern. I'd double-check the background and maybe post pictures of him/her on the Kingsnake retic forum and see if any people better versed in retic locales could give you some input. I just don't want to you to continue thinking you have a dwarf on your hands and end up with a monster! lol

Re: Jampea Dwarf Reticulated Python

Yes im sure its a Jamp he was produced by Harry over at Monster Snakes in Harrison Ar.   The Dwarfs  max out at 15 feet so its going to be a big snake anyway plus the burm I've got.      I've kept big snakes 10 ft + plenty over the years.

Re: Jampea Dwarf Reticulated Python

Harry does produce some gorgeous snakes. I've seen his female Jamp and his other dwarves, and to me they all have the "dwarf" look. Hard to describe.

If I may, let me steal some pictures from Google image search.

Here's a typical Jampea dwarf:

And another:
http://www.reptileforums.co.uk/forums/attachments/snake-classifieds/18763d1281374917-dwarf-jampea-reticulated-python-jampea-male-2.jpg

And another (yes they do get big):
http://www.mccarthyboas.com/images/Jim_Gaspar_Jampa11.jpg

They all have that silvery coloration, more random neck pattern, and an overall more net-like appearance.

Anyway, that's what all dwarves look like to me. If yours is part dwarf, that could explain the discrepancy in the color and pattern. It is good that you're anticipating a larger snake.

Re: Jampea Dwarf Reticulated Python

Russels snake is 50% Jampea...I sold it to him and got that snake as a baby from Harry back in late May of 2009. The sire is an Albino Tiger. Dam is a 100% Jampea.
