I was planning to wait and pick up some cb specimens, but I gave in when I saw these for sale. Both were labeled as females and I initially thought one must be a male due to the coloration, but it appears that they are both females. So I guess I won't be breeding them to one another, but I'm not certain they came from the same area anyway (just thought they might since the seller only had a handful). I'll get some better pics up soon, including shots of the undersides so you guys can make sure I'm right on the sexes. This is the girl that really caught my eye when I initially thought she was a young male redback. Her coloration is a much more vibrant brick red in person.


This girl was an extra addition that I decided to splurge on since I was already paying shipping. I'm glad I did now because I really like the looks of her even though she's not anything very flashy. She has a great personality too-very curious and laid back already.


I checked them immediately when the package arrived at my workplace, but was careless re-tying the sacks they were packed in when I put them back in the box to head home. After I got the box in my reptile room and went to put them in their new home, I realized one sack was empty. I went back out to my vehicle and the darker girl was on top of the back seat soaking up the sun.
