    hi .... the annual reptile and pet expo is on this weekend... plenty on display and many awesome specials on livestock and dry goods for sale...

    from spiders to snakes to even chichillas and much much more

    besides our usual jhb pet stores there will also be breeders from places like durban,pe etc.. interesting things to see for the whole family..

    **** i really doubt there will be much for marine guys so pls dont expect that ...

    It's not albino, it's a leucistic form of the snake. It looks like a boa constrictor. You get many animals that have leucistic characters which can be either bred or genetic malfunctions. Very rare form of the snake, and they fetch a pretty penny. We think fish are expensive, came across a Leucistic gecko once that was selling for 30k.

    Nice Carlos ... its a blue eyed leucistic ball python. ... not albino....unlike humans, albino in the reptile world is not white, it's mainly yellow and sometimes orangy pink. ..
