    As I've seen it stated a few dozen times; Google is your best friend when researching any animal you're interested in. That being said, I've never heard of a dwarf Burmese until now. Only the dwarf and super dwarf retics. Google, here I come!

    Re: Dwarf Burmese python

    Dwarf burms most certainly do exist.

    I don't know much about them that doesn't apply to burms in general, except that they are smaller, not as easy to find, and pretty pricey compared to a normal burm hatchling.

    I think Twin Cities Reptiles (a local reptile pet store near where I live) has one however, sure is a looker!

    As far as how they are ? Biter / hisser.. Its a toss up really kinda like most snakes they all have their own personallity. Sometimes you win and other times ya don't..lol
    Depends also how much time you hold and interact with your snakes.

    Re: Dwarf Burmese python

    Dwarf Burms do exist, but there are a few issues...


    -They are 90% WC
    -They only get about 6-7 ft
    -There is NO Pure dwarf burm morphs.
    -They are biters, and do not make great pets.
    -They are quite expensive for a WC snake.

    This being said, they do not have the same patten as a normal Burm at all.
    normal Burms have saddles, where the dwarfs have more of a labyrinth feel.

    You can get CB Dwarfs...I do have one that will be breedable hopefully next season...

    There are Half Dwarf burms out there...But much of the morphs need to be bred down using the pure dwarfs as the base...

    Once again, be very careful because there are only a handful of breeders with actual half dwarfs...Many are selling underfed/sized burms as dwarfs or half dwarfs...

    Let me know if you want to know about where to get some dwarfs and I can point you in the right direction...

    AND YES, THEY CAN BE VERY PISSY (many refer to them as the "Spawns of Satan" or "Demon Seeds")!!!! I'm lucky and have a girl that is pretty good, little hissy, but that's it for now...But like all snakes, things can change down the road...

    I absolutley agree-the dwarf burms are pissy.
    They are hissy, puff up, and tend to be flighty. To keep them calm the best thing to do is give them hide boxes and crumpled up or shredded newspaper so they get that feeling of security.

    They may be cheaper but that is because they're no longer as rare as the dwarf burm still is, plus they do still get considerably larger. in dwarf retics you're still looking at 10-12ft in length where as a dwarf burm you'd see a max of 7ft. much like the SUPER dwarf retic which is again higher in price right now and, for the most part, stays within the lengths of a Ball or barely larger.
