Where do you even get f/t AFS rats what
My best guess would be that you’d have to find a local breeder and see if they could give you some f/t ones.
But from what I’ve seen the people that breed them do it soley for picky ball pythons. Like REALLY picky where the notion of them eating f/t at all isn’t considered a possibility.
I’ve also heard they’re mean little buggers to keep.
But yeah, I’ve always found it weird that there aren’t more sources for them f/t…
This company sells them frozen in bulk. We have used this company in the past and their rodents are very clean. We have only had good experiences with them.
However, I agree with the person above. We bred ASFs for one of our very picky eaters and that was a horrible mistake. They are mean, they have a habit of eating each other, they chew through pretty much anything but glass enclosures, and it can be hard to get a snake to eat anything else after it is fed an ASF.
So here’s the little boy! I gave him a tissue box to rest in for a time while his hide dried from a wash. He liked it too much so it’s just chillin there now.
behold snake followers this is my friend’s blog about her first time bab!
Nice pick up!

At this point probably my salmon blood for hypos DH bloody leopard. I may still pick up a VPI T+ PP motley in the future for her to try for T+ Eclipses. She’s got a couple more years before she’s up to size so we’ll see.
Alternatively I could put her to Deep Eddy and make some salmon jungles het leopard - the leopard causes a ton of chain link striping that looks pretty sweet. Or I could try for leopard super stripes, that could be a sweet combo (and makes sense with the brunt of my projects focused around SS’s).
Lots of options basically and I probably won’t know what I’m going to pair her with until that season rolls around.
Quick video of Spitfire.
Spitfire - Salmon Leopard (boa constrictor imperator - BCI)
Caught her in light phase today! She ranges from super dark rusty reds/browns/black with a stark salmon belly to being a really nice light bright rusty pink-orange with a nice bright underside.
I haven’t weighed her yet but hopefully she’ll be fit enough to go this season. She’s definitely old enough and large enough to do so, but I want to make sure she has ample stores and good muscle tone going into it. Counting down two months until she’ll be paired, and hoping Malibu will be up to the task.
Blue Moon - WT (boa constrictor imperator - BCI)
If all goes well and the weather holds up this girl should go out next week. She’s such a sweet tempered snake.
The quickest, crappiest video but I couldn’t not capture the wiggles.
I made some easy to remove PVC perches for Peridot this afternoon. Now I can pull him out of his tub and wield the mighty python scepter whenever I please.
