Where do you even get f/t AFS rats what

My best guess would be that you’d have to find a local breeder and see if they could give you some f/t ones.
But from what I’ve seen the people that breed them do it soley for picky ball pythons. Like REALLY picky where the notion of them eating f/t at all isn’t considered a possibility.

I’ve also heard they’re mean little buggers to keep.

But yeah, I’ve always found it weird that there aren’t more sources for them f/t…

This company sells them frozen in bulk. We have used this company in the past and their rodents are very clean. We have only had good experiences with them.

However, I agree with the person above. We bred ASFs for one of our very picky eaters and that was a horrible mistake. They are mean, they have a habit of eating each other, they chew through pretty much anything but glass enclosures, and it can be hard to get a snake to eat anything else after it is fed an ASF.


We have been wanting to add Vanilla to our collection for a long time now but we hadn’t come across one good enough. In 2013 we saw that Metal Monkey Exotics was pairing his amazing male Pastel Vanilla to his amazing female Vanilla. I immediately asked to be put on a waiting list for a baby from that pairing and here we are several months later… a 2014 male Pastel Super Vanilla will be coming home to us!

He is the one in the middle of the top photo. The rest of the photos are siblings and parents :) All photos belong to breeder.

  13. Super Pastel Spider, Banana X Normal

  16. RDR Lesser X Goldblush Mojave
  17. Clown X Axanthic
  18. Fire Sugar X Super Pastel Poss YB
  19. Super Pastel Spider X Pastel Axanthic

Final Count Clutch #1404

I suppose it is possible that the Lesser could have sired this clutch. I originally went with the Fire siring it because there were no Lessers but since the Dam was a Fire, that could account for the one Fire that hatched out. The odds were not in our favor for this one. We aren’t really disappointed though because the whole point was to shoot for a Super Fire or Lesser Fire in order to replace our single gene Fire but now we have two male Fire combos to replace him so it isn’t a big deal :) 

Clutch Outcome: 1.0 Fire, 5.1 Normal


August 22, 2014 - Today I am sharing my birthday with these little guys :) We got pretty bad odds on this clutch. So far there is one Fire and 3 Normals (all males). Pairing = Fire X Fire. There are 3 babies still in the egg.


This pretty boy marks our 8th new addition this week. It is so hard to resist pretty babies.

Our Male Fire Sugar came in the mail today and along with him was a birthday surprise for me! A Female Fire Spider :)

I don’t think any of our followers are near us but if you are, be sure to at least stop by and check it out! 

It has previously been a really small show and we are trying our best to get as much traffic as possible so they will continue to do shows here.

Today, as soon as I woke up I was informed that this male Fire Sugar will be coming to live with us!

The photo on the left is pre shed (snake on the left). And the photo on the right is post second shed. He will be home as soon as weather allows. This means our Male Fire and Male Calico will most likely be for sale soon.
