Mollena x Gamma5 2016 breeding results

I am sorry to announce that majority of the pythons in my collection have tested positive for nidovirus, a potentially fatal respiratory virus.  I have closed my collection at this time and will not be selling any pythons in the near future.   I have separated the negative testing pythons from the positive testing pythons in my collection and placed them in separate rooms.  I am keeping these two groups separated indefinitely.  In Spring 2018 I will re-test the negative animals to determine if they have remained negative for nidovirus.  I might then release some of these negatively tested animals.


For a recent article on nidovirus in Morelia pythons, check out this publication in the Journal of Virology (2017):
