2018 Spring Photoshoot

Hello friends!

The long cold has broken and spring is here! (Yes, it’s still spring for a few more days). I’m sorry for the big gap in posts, but I do still exist and I am still breeding blue tongue skinks.

I’ll post more about the 2018 breeding season shortly, but for now I wanted to share some photos of the 2017 and 2016 animals living here at ME. Some of these are my personal purchases/holdbacks, and some will be available for sale (I will work on updating the Available Page ASAP). For now please enjoy the photos (click for full size) and stay tuned for more updates and posts in the coming days.

Many thanks,
Mel

A New Bloodsucker

Happy Wednesday friends,

I just wanted to give a quick update here and introduce one of the new faces here at ME.

Update: I am, as of this moment, caught up on all my emails and the available page is up to date. I’m sure my nice clean inbox won’t last long, but it’s a nice feeling for the moment. If you have emailed me and I didn’t reply please email me again, as I did not receive it.

And now, introducing:

Leech!

Unfortunately I only have terrible basement photos of him right now, but I still wanted to share. This is Leech, my new Blood Python. I have wanted a blood for a while now, and when Leech came available (as a tame adult male) I jumped at the chance. He arrived last month (pictures of him in the tank) but was in shed, and then he had to eat and digest, so Monday was the first day I got to take him out for some handling. We’re still getting to know each other of course, but he enjoyed some time checking out my basement, and I enjoyed snapping some pictures of him. I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I enjoy having him here 🙂

2016 Blue Tongue Photoshoot

As promised, today’s photoshoot was for the yearling blue tongues living here. Again, some are available (see the available page), some are my personal holdbacks, and one is a a new animal to join my breeding group.

Tomorrow I may post some of the new, non-blue-tongue additions that have joined the ME family recently.

2017 Blue Tongue Photoshoot

Good evening friends,

After a bout of illness and a week long work trip, I’m back with some new baby skink photos. I took photos of every 2017 blue tongue living here – some are available (see the available page), some are on hold, and some are my personal holdbacks/pickups. Tomorrow I will be taking pictures of the yearlings as well.

I will be answering emails tonight and tomorrow morning. To be honest I think most skinks are probably spoken for at this point, but I will try to update the available page tomorrow. I will also note that I have 2-3 more work trips happening in the next month, so updates and responses may continue to be sporadic. I apologize in advance. If I haven’t replied in a couple of days, feel free to send another email.

Many thanks,
Mel

More Babies for Sale from Justin T

Hi friends!

As you see on my Available Page, I’m running low on Northern blue tongue skink babies (still have some Irian Jayas left). But there is good news for those who have their heart set on a Northern; another Canadian breeder has a few beautiful babies up for sale and is able to ship in Canada! See below for some of Justin Tricoci’s skink photos and contact him at justintricoci@gmail.com.

Responding to Emails

Hey guys,

Just wanted to say that I’m currently working on responding to all the emails I’ve been getting (I apologize for the delay for some of you – I went out of town and then got a bit of a head cold).

I hope to have them all replied to by the end of the day. If you haven’t received a reply by the end of today, or if you believe you need an urgent reply, feel free to send another email. Make sure it is to MelanieJPratt@gmail.com.

I’m also trying to keep the Available Page updated as I go.

Many thanks,
Mel

Available Page Updated

There are now babies and yearlings available for purchase!

Check out the Available Page to see what’s available – I will try to keep it updated as babies are purchased – and how much each baby will cost.

There are an additional dozen babies that are not listed as available yet as I work out trades and pick holdbacks, so at least a few more will be added to the available page in the future.

Local pickup is available in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Otherwise shipping is available across Canada with Reptile Express (usually costs around $100). And for the first time ever I will be exporting some animals to the USA on August 15. It’s an exciting new adventure for ME 🙂

If you’re looking to purchase an animal don’t forget to read the information I provided on the Available Page and check the Purchasing from ME, Pricing and Discounts, Terms of Sale, and Shipping pages.

Once you’ve looked at the animals and read all the information about them, contact me at MelanieJPratt@gmail.com.

Photos of the 2016 Yearlings

I took photos of my yearlings (born 2016) today. These guys were not made available last year and ended up brumating for over 4 months after the move to the new house in fall. They’re awake now, eating well (they’re always happy to clean up the extras from the new baby meals), and aside from needing a manicure they should be good to go. These litters are fairly special, and as such will mostly only be made available to select groups for breeding.

Again, there are no babies available just yet. Thankfully, these were the last photos I needed to take, so I will be updating their availability ASAP. For now, please enjoy the pictures.

2017 Baby Photospam

Good evening friends! I spent this evening taking a million or so photos of all the baby blue tongues here. I still need to compile the photos properly and make an availability page, plus get photos of the remaining yearlings here, but in the meantime please enjoy these photos.

Note: These babies are NOT available yet, but most will be very soon. If you’ve sent me an email in the past month or two, I will be sending an email back soon as well. If you haven’t yet, feel free to send an email to let me know that you’re interested in purchasing a 2017 baby. But PLEASE DO NOT tell me which one you want or such yet – some may be holdbacks or being traded for new bloodlines – PLEASE WAIT until the available list is officially posted. Thank you very much!
