The rarest of all Super Dwarf Reticulated python localities, the Karompa Retic was first bred in the US right here from this pair last year (this clutch is only the 4th clutch ever), and it has been amazing to see those first ever CB babies start to mature! These Retics are said to be the smallest of all Retics, with a very calm demeanor and great attitude (even as wild caught specimens), and also to have the most extreme color contrast and aberrant patterns among the localities. Hailing from a tiny island south of Sulawesi, this race of mini Retics is inherently always living on the brink of extinction. The very conditions that created this island form in nature are also their greatest threat.
Last year, when we did this breeding we were pleasantly surprised with the first ever captive bred Anerytheristic baby Karompa (we got one, which we sent home with the owner of the dam Aaron Metcalf). In this years breeding, we were delighted to have produced a second one to keep for ourselves!
