Thanks for all the interest, it's always nice to be able to show off the family!

Here are some close ups of the three juveniles I have: All were born in captivity from pregnant females rescued from the wild.
Two (Magenta and Rifraf) were born around September 2006, the third, (Constantine) probably about six months later in March 2007.

I know everyone says Candoia are easy to sex, but I had great difficulty until recently: I think they were simply too small for me to see (must need stronger glasses). But now I am sure that Magenta and Rifraf are male, the jury's still out on Constantine.
What I'm trying to work out is when they will be large enough to mate with that black female...

Hope you enjoy, there are more random pics on pacificboasnakes.blogspot.com

Hmmm.. not sure why but, I can't post the photos I just uploaded here: maybe it takes a while for new photos to register. Here are the gallery links to the pics of the juveniles, I'll try and post again later.
