That will be about the only way someone will own one.  LOL

I just skinned out a striped ball python.  I will finish it once I get back from the World Show in May.

I made a silcone mold so that I can make repros and paint them anyway of the 100's of ball python morphs...and have fun with irresdescent powder paints like I do on my fish scale tipping.

Piebald would be fun.

It will go over really well at the reptile shows that I go to...all those ball python breeders will need one  LOL

I think it looks pretty darn good.Replicas are hard to paint well and you certainly have figured it out.I like the posing of your snakes also.Nice work.

I've seen live California red sided garter snakes for sale before Kerby ,the cost was around $150.00 for them. the San Fransisco is the impossible ones to get a hold of .  i'm looking forward to seeing your ball python replicas . using the irresdescent powder sounds cool.  i really  like the way the bumble bee morphs look ,i was wanting to work on one but  i ran out of resin so I'll will have to wait to get on it. though i was looking for something to paint  and found a old timber /canebrake replica i made a while back that was full of casting flaws  but did it up anyways, i  think it looks pretty good but does it look realistic ? thanks

gator, since it has a ton of flaws and the paint looks so bad, why dont you tell me a price for it, i am sure i could find a use for it  ;D

Little customers iguana i just mounted with cast hand painted head. still have to do a body wash to blend tones, but you get the picture. the artificial head only goes to the lower jaw line. The dew-lap has a slot and is part of the skin slotted under the jaw

Very cool mounts  guys . Kerby whats the king snake doing eating the rattlesnake ? have any close-up of it.  your  Cuban Rock Iguana  looks awesome .
heres a ball python replica i recently finished painting.

Wow! I sleep 2 feet away from 4 Ball Pythons (needless to say I know what they look like), and I wouldn't have known the difference if it hadn't been told to me. Absolutely perfect, Excellent!!!!  I can't say enough good things about this rep!
