A little break in the weather and finally able to get this girl.

100% Pure Super Dwarf Retic


I will let her settle and take some size comparison pictures, she hatched May 2013, consider I have a couple female balls that hatched June 2013 I'll have some good comparison photos soon.

To give a size reference shes about 3' in length and 107 grams

Shes a little ball of energy, I can tell she has a feeding response and let me tell you shes 100x quicker than any of the balls we have.

The pure SDs hit around 6' in length and not as much girth as a Ball Python.  Super Dwarf morphs are pretty awesome, hoping to get an Anery SD female also this year. But I really wanted a nice normal SD female from the best SD lines.

She came from Travis Kubes, who I've known for years and have watched become one of the top guys in the business.

You can see here
Super Dwarf Born May 2013 - 107 grams
Pastel Butter Born June 2013 - 350 grams

The super dwarf is a little bit longer, but she is so tiny in comparison overall to that of a Ball Python.

The albino het stripe is September Hatchling and shes 220 grams already.

The camera makes her look much darker, shes got a great iridescence and is amazing looking. I think my gf is already hooked on retics lol.

And finally with a fat belly she calmed down.

Are super dwarfs from Jampea lineage or totally separate?

Completely separate, when you hear the term Jampea, Selayer, Sulawesi (considered the largest growing in general of Retics), Buton island etc etc these are all separate localities of Retics.

Jampea have been considered dwarf for quite some time. Jamps get large, Several 14-16' and one guy with a 19' pure Jamp female.

The girl I have when the original lines came in they didn't come with a locality, the original WC female was in the 5-6' range wrapped around eggs. And as far as I know the breeders that got original line animals most of the adults are in the 5-6' range some may peak slightly over. And have seen adults in the 4.5' range on eggs.

Other retics considered to be Super Dwarf are Kalaotoa, Kayuadi, and Madu (these typically get a little larger in the 7-8' range)

It's quite confusing

I'm trying to encourage a few of the Locality Gurus to compile everything into a list.

I'm trying to learn as much as I can about the localities, I may even plan a trip to Indo in a couple years.
