Morelia Trophy Club
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):

Results from 9 eggs: 2 jagpondros and 5 carpondros hatched, one jagpondro died 24 hours after hatch and another died in the egg (fully developed).
