A family of snakes comprising the boas, anacondas, and pythons. They occupy a variety of habitats through the tropics and subtropics and are arboreal, aquatic or fossorial (burrowing). Some are oviparous, others ovoviviparous. Contrary to popular opinion, they do not crush the bones of their victims: their coils exert enough pressure to stop a prey's breathing, thus suffocating it. There are five subfamilies: Boinae, Bolyerinae, Erycinae, Pythoninae, and Tropidophiinae. (Goin, Goin, and Zug, Introduction to Herpetology, 3d ed, p315-320)

Recovery of ranavirus dsDNA from formalin-fixed archival material. (1/81)

The extraction and amplification of nucleic acid from formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded tissues has become an important exercise in the collection of retrospective epidemiological data. A protocol is described that enables the extraction and amplification of dsDNA from fixed tissues within paraffin blocks and from specimens stored in 10% (aq) formalin. The procedure can be used for the examination of ranavirus DNA within archival tissues thereby providing valuable data for identifying the origin and tracing the spread of ranaviruses.  (+info)

Salmon: a new autosomal mutation demonstrating incomplete dominance in the boine snake Boa constrictor. (2/81)

An unusual and attractive pigmentation pattern mutation termed "salmon" has been identified in the United States in several captive colonies of the common neotropical boine snake boa constrictor [Boa constrictor (Boidae)]. Boa constrictors expressing the Sa pigmentation pattern appear to be restricted to regions of Panama. Animals with the Sa phenotype exhibit a sharp decrease in melanophore pigments (e.g., melanin) and an increase of xanthophore pigments (e.g., pteridines and carotenoids) throughout the body, including ventral and caudal regions. Moreover, the dorsal saddles (blotches) and lateral diamond patterns are greatly reduced and/or absent. Our study was initiated using a female B. constrictor born in captivity and expressed the Sa pigmentation pattern. Results from breeding experiments indicated an inheritance mode of autosomal incomplete dominance for the Sa and Wt alleles.  (+info)

Ventilatory and cardiovascular responses of a python (Python molurus) to exercise and digestion. (3/81)

To investigate the potential limiting steps of peak metabolic rates, we examined gas exchange rates ( vdot (O2), vdot (CO2)), respiratory exchange ratio (RER), breathing frequency, tidal volume, minute ventilation volume (V.e) as well as the heart rate, systemic blood flow and stroke volume of Burmese pythons (Python molurus) while fasting at rest, exercising, digesting and exercising while digesting. All measured variables increased significantly during exercise (crawling at 0.4 km h(-)(1) and at vdot (O2max)), highlighted by a 17-fold increase in vdot (CO2) and a 24-fold increase in V.e. During the digestion of a meal equivalent to 25 % of the snake's body mass, pythons responded with increases in vdot (O2) and heart rate similar to those experienced during exercise, along with a 4.5-fold increase in systemic blood flow. Interestingly, pythons hyperventilated while exercising, whereas they hypoventilated during digestion. The combined demands of exercise and digestion resulted in significantly higher vdot (O2), vdot (CO2), breathing frequency and heart rate than during either exercise or digestion alone. Evidently, the capacities of the ventilatory and cardiovascular systems to transport oxygen to locomotor muscles are not a limiting factor in the attainment of peak metabolic rates during exercise in pythons  (+info)

Isolation and characterization of an antigenically distinct 68-kd protein from nonviral intracytoplasmic inclusions in Boa constrictors chronically infected with the inclusion body disease virus (IBDV: Retroviridae). (4/81)

The relationship between a retroviral infection and the development of nonviral intracytoplasmic inclusion bodies was studied in a Boa constrictor model. Twelve juvenile age- and size-matched inclusion body disease (IBD)-negative boas were randomly divided into three groups. Each group was inoculated intraperitoneally with 1 ml of an IBD virus (IBDV)-infected liver homogenate or 1 ml of normal boa liver homogenate (sham-inoculated control) or was left untreated. All boas were monitored for development of IBD by daily examination and serial liver biopsy over 1 year. The 4 IBDV-inoculated boas became IBDV and inclusion positive by 10 weeks postinoculation. The average size and density of inclusion bodies increased with the duration of infection. Ultrastructurally, inclusion bodies <2 microm in diameter consisted of intracytoplasmic aggregates of granular electron-dense material that were not membrane limited. Larger inclusions (3-6 microm in diameter) were characterized as membrane-bound aggregates of amorphous to granular electron-dense material admixed with membranelike fragments. The sham-inoculated and untreated control snakes did not become inclusion or IBDV positive. Direct comparison of the protein electrophoretograms of IBDV-infected and normal boa tissues demonstrated a prominent 68-kd protein band unique to infected inclusion-positive tissues. Monoclonal antibodies directed against the 68-kd protein band specifically labeled inclusion bodies. The results of this study demonstrate that IBD inclusions represent an intracytoplasmic accumulation of an antigenically distinct IBDV-associated protein.  (+info)

Luminal and systemic signals trigger intestinal adaptation in the juvenile python. (5/81)

Juvenile pythons undergo large rapid upregulation of intestinal mass and intestinal transporter activities upon feeding. Because it is also easy to do surgery on pythons and to maintain them in the laboratory, we used a python model to examine signals and agents for intestinal adaptation. We surgically isolated the middle third of the small intestine from enteric continuity, leaving its mesenteric nerve and vascular supply intact. Intestinal continuity was restored by an end-to-end anastomosis between the proximal and distal thirds. Within 24 h of the snake's feeding, the reanastomosed proximal and distal segments (receiving luminal nutrients) had upregulated amino acid and glucose uptakes by up to 15-fold, had doubled intestinal mass, and thereby soon achieved total nutrient uptake capacities equal to those of the normal fed full-length intestine. At this time, however, the isolated middle segment, receiving no luminal nutrients, experienced no changes from the fasted state in either nutrient uptakes or in morphology. By 3 days postfeeding, the isolated middle segment had upregulated nutrient uptakes to the same levels as the reanastomosed proximal and distal segments, but it still lacked any appreciable morphological response. These contrasting results for the reanastomosed intestine and for the isolated middle segment suggest that luminal nutrients and/or pancreatic biliary secretions are the agents triggering rapid upregulation of transporters and of intestinal mass and that systemic nerve or hormonal signals later trigger transporter regulation but no trophic response.  (+info)

Adenovirus hepatitis in a boa constrictor (Boa constrictor). (6/81)

A boa constrictor was submitted for postmortem evaluation. At necropsy, there were no substantial lesions except in the liver. Light microscopy revealed severe multifocal to coalescing coagulative necrotic hepatitis, with basophilic and eosinophilic intranuclear inclusions in hepatocytes within the necrotic foci. The histopathological findings suggested a viral hepatitis. An adenoviral infection was diagnosed by means of transmission electronic microscopy and in situ hybridization techniques.  (+info)

Structural flexibility of the intestine of Burmese python in response to feeding. (7/81)

The small intestine of Burmese pythons, Python molurus bivittatus, undergoes a remarkable size increase shortly after feeding. We studied the dynamics, reversibility and repeatability of organ size changes using noninvasive imaging techniques. We employed light and electron microscopy, flow cytometry and immunohistology to study the cytological mechanisms that drive the size changes of the small intestine. Within 2 days of feeding, the size of the small intestine increased to up to three times the fasting value. The size changes were fully reversible and could be elicited repeatedly by feeding. These enormous size changes were possible because the mucosal epithelium of the small intestine is a transitional epithelium that allows for considerable size changes without cell proliferation. Histological evidence suggested that a fluid pressure-pump system (lymphatic, blood pressure) was the driving force that inflated the intestinal villi. The rates of cell proliferation were not elevated immediately after feeding but peaked 1 week later when small intestine size was already declining. In contrast to the current paradigm, we suggest that the small intestine is not part of the previously proposed 'pay-before-pumping' model. Instead, the size of the python's small intestine may be upregulated without major metabolic investment. It can occur even if the individual is energetically exhausted. An evolutionary perspective of the transitional epithelium mechanism suggests superior functionality compared with the pay-before-pumping model because it allows for long periods of fasting and depletion of energy reserves, while still enabling the snake to digest prey and absorb nutrients.  (+info)

Retroviral particles in neoplasms of Burmese pythons (Python molurus bivittatus). (8/81)

Neoplastic diseases associated with retroviruses were diagnosed in four Burmese pythons (Python molurus bivattatus) from a single collection. Snake No. 1 was a 7-year-old female with recurrent undifferentiated mesenchymal round cell tumor (lymphosarcoma) of the oral cavity. At necropsy, similar neoplastic masses were evident in the uterus and ovary, and there was diffuse involvement of the spleen. Snake No. 2 was a 4.5-year-old female that was euthanatized because of complications following resection of a segmental colonic adenocarcinoma. Snake No. 3 was a 5-year-old female that was euthanatized because of a large transitional cell carcinoma of the right kidney. Snake No. 4 was a 19-year-old female that was euthanatized following recurrence of an intermandibular fibrosarcoma. Ultrastructural examination revealed few to numerous extracellular and intracellular (intravacuolar) type C-like retroviral particles in all tumors. Tumors were about 90-95 nm in diameter, with an electron-dense core and bilaminar external membrane. The relationship of the intraneoplastic viral particles to the etiology of the tumors is uncertain.  (+info)

Systemic blood pressure of Python molurus is similar to mammals and considerably higher than in most other reptiles with the exception of varanid lizards (e.g. Johansen and Burggren, 1980; Burggren and Johansen, 1982; Shelton, 1993; Hicks, 1998; Burggren et al., 1998). Pulmonary arterial pressure is, on the other hand, lower than in any other reptiles, including varanid lizards. Recordings of intraventricular pressure established that the pressure differences are generated within the heart and the contraction of the CA seemed to precede CP, although ejection of blood into the pulmonary circulation occurred before the systemic valves opened (Fig. 3). The substantial pressure separation persisted in the face of large changes in systemic blood pressure induced by sodium nitroprusside or phenylephrine (Fig. 2). Collectively, these observations suggest that the CP and the CA are completely divided during the entire duration of systole so that the cardiac physiology of Python molurus strongly ...
Fig. 1. Schematic dorso-ventral representation of the tongue of Python molurus and its extrinsic muscles. (A) Abbreviations: cbr, ceratobranchial; m, mandible; dsh, distal tongue ensheathing; ggl, m. genioglossus; hgl, m. hyoglossus; psh, proximal tongue ensheathing; sh, tongue sheet. The dental bone forms the local coordinate system of the head. Although the head is highly deformable during feeding, the lower jaws do not deform during tongue flicking. The position of the ceratobranchials is assumed to be fixed to the skull during tongue flicking (e.g. Bels et al., 1994). The mm. genioglossi and the mm. hyoglossi are able to protract and retract the tongue relative to the mandibles and ceratobranchials. Proximally on the tongue, the mm. hyoglossi are ensheathed. This tubular tongue sheet encloses the tongue distally up to the tongue tips, inverts into itself and connects to the tongue at the distal tongue ensheathing (McDowell, 1972). The outer tongue sheet is connected to the muscles and ...
As one of the 6 biggest kinds of snakes in the world, Burmese pythons can weigh up to 200 pounds and grow up to 20 feet long. The largest pythons are always female. They can grow from 13 to 20 feet while the typically smaller males grow from 8 to 17 feet. However, most Burmese pythons in general grow to a length of around 12 feet. The males and females can be distinguished by external features. In males the anal spurs on each side of the cloaca are much more developed than in females. Its unknown how long the Burmese python will live in the wild. The snakes body and its organs are long and thin. Pythons are constrictors, therefore they dont have fangs; instead, they have rearward- pointing teeth, and they are non-venomous. Snakes usually only have one thin lung. However, pythons have two, one of which is considerably smaller than the other. They lack eyelids. However, they do have a thin, protective epidermal membrane covering the eyes. The lighter-colored amelanistic form of this snake is ...

Exceptional and extreme feeding behaviour makes the Burmese python (Python bivittatus) an interesting model to study physiological remodelling and metabolic adaptation in response to refeeding after prolonged starvation. In this study, we used transcriptome sequencing of five visceral organs during fasting as well as 24h and 48h after ingestion of a large meal to unravel the postprandial changes in Burmese pythons. We first used the pooled data to perform a de novo assembly of the transcriptome and supplemented this with a proteomic survey of enzymes in the plasma and gastric fluid. |br| We constructed a high-quality transcriptome with 34,423 transcripts of which 19,713 (57%) were annotated. Among highly expressed genes (FPKM|100 in one tissue) we found the transition from fasting to digestion was associated with differential expression of 43 genes in the heart, 206 genes in the liver, 114 genes in the stomach, 89 genes in the pancreas and 158 genes in the intestine. We interrogated the function of
Burmese pythons are frequently found in or near the water, although they are capable of climbing. Occasionally, pythons are seen in the water during warm months, but most pythons are found crossing roads at night during summer and fall.. During cooler months, Burmese pythons can be found on levees along the edge of canals. On cool mornings, pythons will often lay in the edge of vegetation on the eastern side of canals; after warming up, they will move away from the edges later in the day.. Breeding takes place from January through April. In these months, females and males can be found together in the fringe of vegetation on the edge of canals with permanent water. Breeding females are typically larger than males; after laying eggs, females will guard the nest for weeks until hatching.. ...

Wang, T.; Axelsson, M.; Jensen, J.; Conlon, J.M., 2000: Cardiovascular actions of python bradykinin and substance P in the anesthetized python, Python regius
The postprandial period in Burmese pythons (Python molurus) is marked by a large increase in oxygen consumption (up to 40-fold in animals fed 25% of their body mass) and significant hypertrophy of gastrointestinal organs. Previous experiments have described a rapid (within 48 hours) and pronounced (40%) postprandial ventricular enlargement, but recent work noted the absence of cardiac hypertrophy under a similar experimental protocol, and suggests postprandial cardiac hypertrophy be considered facultative rather than obligatory. We hypothesize that postprandial cardiac hypertrophy serves to augment cardiac output and oxygen delivery during a period of peak oxygen demand, and experimental reduction of arterial oxygen content should therefore stimulate more pronounced ventricular enlargement. In this study, we delivered meals equivalent to 25% of body mass to Burmese pythons and allowed them to digest under environmental normoxia, environmental hypoxia, or experimentally-induced anemia. While ...
Inclusion body disease (IBD) in the boid family of snakes, particularly Boa constrictor, has been recognized since the mid-1970s. It is so named because of the characteristic intracytoplasmic inclusions which are observed in clinical examinations in epidermal cells, oral mucosal epithelial cells, visceral epithelial cells, and neurons. In the 1970s and 1980s, the disease was most commonly observed in Burmese pythons, Python bivittatus. From the 1980s till the present day, it has been most commonly observed in boa constrictors from South America. All boid snakes should be considered susceptible to the disease. Many zoos quarantine boas specifically as a result of this high risk before introducing them into their permanent collections and (breeding) programs. While the disease has not been identified in non-boid snakes, it is yet unknown whether non-boid snakes harbour the virus. The primary host of this virus has not yet been identified, but mites are thought to be primary hosts or at least a ...

After looking at locomotion and musculature, they examined the relictual hindlimbs that are present in pythons. Members of various snake lineages retain pelvic girdles and hindlimb remnants*; boas and pythons possess spurs that are used in male-male combat and in courtship [Burmese python spurs shown here, visible on either side of the gaping cloaca. Photo by Joy Reidenberg, used with permission]. Embryology shows that pythons start out with hindlimb buds but that limb development is aborted as the apical ectodermal ridge - a thick epithelium rim that normally forms at the distal end of developing limb buds - fails to develop (Cohn & Tickle 1999). The spur present in an adult python is apparently a relictual femur with a cartilaginous tip that is sheathed with a claw. * Typhlopids, leptotyphlopids, anomalepidids, Anilius, Loxocemus, Cylindrophis and the many taxa traditionally grouped together in Boidae have pelvic girdles, but only leptotyphlopids, Anilius, Cylindrophis and taxa traditionally ...

Selecting a Snake. Before you acquire your snake, you should do some research on the particular species that you are interested in. Different species have varied husbandry and dietary requirements, physical appearance (such as length), temperaments, and environmental considerations. Some snakes, such as boa constrictors and ball pythons, have gentle and very docile temperaments. Others, such as the reticulated and Burmese pythons, are unpredictable and tend to be aggressive as they mature. Anacondas rarely adapt well to captivity. Some snakes reach very large sizes in captivity: for example, the boa constrictors and pythons can grow up to sixteen feet. It is illegal (and foolish) to house venomous/poisonous snakes unless you are an experienced herpetologist with a license from the DSE to do this. Select a snake that looks healthy and is eating regularly. Never buy a snake that looks sick, even if the price is a bargain. You will end up paying more in veterinary bills.. Housing.

Although traditional Burmese cuisine is unique and neither similar to that of the Indians nor that of the Chinese, many foreigners easily conclude that Burmese Cuisine is somewhere between Chinese and Indian cuisine. The main reason for that is: for many foreigners, real Burmese cuisine is out of their reach because cook books on traditional Burmese cuisine are extremely rare, and very few good restaurants serve traditional Burmese meals. Thus, it is no wonder that traditional Burmese cuisine is like a closed book for many foreigners. Apart from that, there was a huge Indian immigration into Burma during the British colonial era and some Indian influences can be traced in modern Burmese cuisine even today. Since most of the modern cook books are based on hybrid-cuisines, one cannot get the real information about traditional Burmese cuisine. Reading those books may even lead a foreigner to jump to the wrong conclusions.. To conclude, I have presented this article in the spirit of genuine good ...
I have a ball python which I ve owned for the past 3 years. He has always been my most difficult ball python, going off food for over 3 months at one point. He is now off food again. It s been 40 days since his last meal. He doesn t look skinny at all, but has lost around 25g ( he is 1250 grams). He just shed yesterday and he seemed to have a little diarrhea as well. I m assuming that it is from him not eating. Does anyone have any ideas? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Only very few species of snakes are physically capable of swallowing an adult human. Although quite a few claims have been made about giant snakes swallowing adult humans, only a limited number have been confirmed. In 2017 in Indonesia, an adult was discovered inside of a 7 metre long python,[39] and on June 14, 2018 a 54 year old woman named Wa Tiba was eaten by a reticulated python, which had slithered into her garden at her home.[40] Large constricting snakes will sometimes constrict and kill prey that are too large to swallow. Also, multiple cases are documented of medium-sized (3 m (9.8 ft) to 4 m (13 ft)) captive Burmese pythons constricting and killing humans, including several nonintoxicated, healthy adult men, one of whom was a student zookeeper.[41][42][43][44] In the zookeeper case, the python was attempting to swallow the zookeepers head when other keepers intervened.[44] In addition, at least one Burmese python as small as 2.7 m (8.9 ft) constricted and killed an intoxicated ...
Aspergillus caninus (synonym: Phialosimplex caninus) is an anamorphic fungus species associated with systemic infections in dogs that has been transferred from the genus Phialosimplex to Aspergillus. Here, we report the first case of canine A. caninus infection in Japan. A castrated Japanese Shiba Inu (6 years old; weight, 12.5 kg) was referred to the Yamaguchi University Animal Medical Center, Yamaguchi, Japan, in June 2017 showing vitality loss and depression. Computed tomography revealed iliac and splenic hilum lymphopathies, and histologic examination of an iliac lymph node by biopsy revealed granulomatous lesions with numerous oval to round yeast-like fungal cells. Aspergillus caninus was isolated from the biopsy samples, and in vitro susceptibility tests of the isolate to the antifungal drugs amphotericin B (AMB), fluconazole (FLZ), itraconazole (ITZ), voriconazole (VRZ), and micafungin (MCF) were performed by the E-test method. The isolate from this dog exhibited a minimal inhibitory ...

Python 3 is intended by upstream to be the future of Python, but we have many critical components that use Python 2. Python 2 and Python 3 are sufficiently different that we need both (try writing print in each). Python 2 will be around for a long time. An interesting summary of Python 3 adoption can be seen here: http://renesd.blogspot.com/2009/09/py3kpython3-more-than-one-year-on-096.html How to do this? I propose that Fedora shall have separate, parallel-installable Python 2 and Python 3 stacks. I believe we can get things to the point where on a Fedora box youd be able to install both stacks, and have some processes running python 2 code, and some running python 3, simultaneously. Where I would draw the line is on having both python 2 and python 3 running within the same _process_: the two libraries share most of their symbol names, but with differing implementations, and the result of trying to dynamically link the two into the same address space would be highly unstable. As an example, ...

Burmese python (Python bivittatus) females are capable of making exact ZW female clones of themselves, using a mechanism that is functionally similar to but distinct from that used by obligate parthenogenetic species like the Brahminy Blindsnake. The python offspring are all females and are mostly viable, having suffered no loss of genetic information. In both boas and pythons, the sex chromosomes are monomorphic, meaning that the Z and the W chromosome are approximately equal in size and indistinguishable from one another. It has been suggested that this method of reproduction might help species circumvent limitations on lifespan and establish new populations when individuals are isolated for long periods of time, although this claim will require more evidence to evaluate because parthenogenesis has not been observed in wild boas or pythons. However, new data from molecular ecologist Warren Booth has resulted in a reinterpretation of some of the conclusions of the original description of ...
Washington, DC 20503. Dear Secretary Jewell and Administrator Shelanski,. We are writing to request that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) move quickly-and with support from OMB and the White House-to complete its ruling on large non-native constrictor snakes by issuing a final regulation listing the reticulated python, the DeSchauensees anaconda, the green anaconda, the Beni anaconda and the boa constrictor as injurious under the Lacey Act.. These snakes pose an unacceptable and preventable risk to the safety of the American people, and to some of our most treasured natural places. Since 1990, 12 people have died from encounters with pet constrictor snakes, including a two year old Florida girl and a three year old Illinois boy who were both strangled in their cribs. Dozens more have been injured or sickened. Further, these snakes have shown that they can adapt to, invade, and severely damaged native ecosystems, as we have seen with the Burmese pythons decimation of mammal ...

I live with lizards. Ive lived with snakes, too. Boa constrictors, ball, reticulated and Burmese pythons, anacondas, pine snakes, rat snakes, and more. The only reason I dont have snakes now is that I cant give them the care and attention they deserve. My lizards are demanding!. Here is an excerpt about meeting a snake from LIZARD LOVE.. I didnt know where I could go and be okay. I walked, not caring which way I went, watching the lines of my swimsuit blur into the grass until I saw that I had come down the path where the brambles used to be.. I stopped and held a tear between my eyelashes. It was like peering through a tiny prism. For a second I was back in the tunnel of green light, the way it used to be before Bob Ellis cut away the brambles. I squeezed out the tear and saw the snake, right there at the edge of the path.. His neck was curved, because he had seen me and was being careful about coming out of the tall weeds. He held his head up, watching me, but I could tell that he ...
Giant pythons capable of swallowing a dog and even an alligator are rapidly making south Florida their home, potentially threatening other southeastern states, a study said. Pythons are likely to colonize anywhere alligators live, including north Florida, Georgia and Louisiana, said Frank Mazzotti, University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences professor, in his two-year study. The pythons thriving in Florida are mostly Burmese pythons from Myanmar that were brought over as pets and then turned loose in the wild. From 2002-2005, 201 of the beasts were caught by state authorities, but in the last two years the number has more than doubled to 418, Mazzotti said in his study published on the university Web site. The largest python caught so far in Florida measured 16.4 feet and weighed 154 pounds. Mazzotti said the serpents, despite their awesome size, are not poisonous, but are excellent swimmers and able to cover great distances in little time. Some, trapped and released with ...

A new study has found that native mammal populations in the Florida Everglades are--literally--being wiped out by invasive Burmese pythons. From this AP story in |a href=http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2012/01/30/MNDT1N0IJV.DTL||em|the San Francisco Chronicle|/em||/a|:|br/| _|br/| A burgeoning population of huge pythons - many of them pets that were turned loose by their owners when they became too big - appears to be wiping out raccoons, opossums, bobcats and other mammals in the Everglades, a study found. The study, published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, found that sightings of medium-size mammals are down dramatically - as much as 99 percent, in some cases - in areas where pythons and other large, nonnative constrictor snakes are known to be lurking._

Conventional wisdom held that pythons and anacondas suffocate their prey. Instead, the predators cut off their victims blood supply, a new study says.
The Gold Ring Burmese Danio is a very attractive fish that is sure to add personality to any community freshwater aquarium. Boasting a silver-gold body and spotted pattern that stretches from the gill to the end of the tail. Gold Ring Burmese Danios are found in a variety of habitats, ranging from fast-moving streams to slow-moving, nearly stagnant ponds. In the home aquarium, this member of the Cyprinidae family prefers a well-planted aquarium with large, open areas for swimming. House the Gold Ring Burmese Danio in an aquarium of at least 10 gallons or larger aquascaped with live plants, rocks and driftwood. Darker substrate will help bring out best coloration. For best care, keep this peaceful fish in small schools with equally non-aggressive fish. The Gold Ring Burmese Danio is a highly active swimmer, especially when kept in small schools, so additional water flow provided by a powerhead will be greatly appreciated. Male Danios are generally more torpedo shaped, while females tend to have a ...

So ten years ago I spent a lot of time - hours stretching in nights - in the waiting room of the Animal Medical Center on East 68th street in Manhattan. I spent enough time there to learn the painful curvature of the plastic chairs and to get friendly with other vigilant pet-owners, and their animals. I met a small girl and her rabbit, named Whitey. Whitey had stomach cancer. A young man, who always sat at the farthest possible distance from everyone else in the waiting room, had a boa constrictor with a strep throat. I asked him how, initially, he was able to tell that his boa constrictor was unwell. I forget his exact words, but the gist was that it was obvious to him as Brunos discomfort was to me. In that waiting room I saw parrots, gerbils, and dogs and cats of every size and permutation. One morning a team of photographers from PEOPLE magazine showed up to do a shoot on the range of exotic animals and their equally exotic owners. Bruno, a Springer spaniel, and I did not qualify as exotic ...
This dialogue has not moved me past my open-mouthed admiration at the size of python eggs (larger than an old-fashioned meat ball) as well as the 87 eggs this 164.5-pound 17 ft. 7 in. female developed in the three months she was tracked. In comparison, an average clutch of eggs for Burmese pythons is 40, according to Robert H. Robins, senior biologist at the Florida Museum of Natural History. Just one more thing about the pythons that Robins explained: The eggs are tended by the female, who surrounds them with her coils. ..[and] may employ shivering thermogenesis to regulate the temperature of the clutch of eggs. Upon hatching, the young and female part ways. This female, according to USGS sources, was recaptured and removed before she laid her eggs.. Is studying pythons useful?. The python was tracked with microtransmitter devices that recorded everything she did. In science, knowledge is power. Revkin reports details from Kristen M. Hart, a research ecologist with the survey: The female ...
Chikungunya virus is an emerging arbovirus of significant human-health concern. Little is known about its sylvatic cycle, including whether ectothermic vertebrates are permissive to infection. In this study, individuals from ten species of reptiles and amphibians were inoculated with chikungunya virus and samples of blood were tested to characterize viremia and seroconversion. Viremia was not detected in cane toads, house geckos, or American alligators, but most of the green iguanas, red-eared sliders, ball and Burmese pythons, leopard frogs, Texas toads, and garter snakes developed viremia. Peak virus titers in serum of up to 4.5, 4.7, and 5.1 log10 plaque-forming units per milliliter were observed for garter snakes, ball pythons, and Texas toads, respectively. These results add to those of other studies that have suggested a possible role for ectothermic vertebrates in the ecology of arbovirus maintenance and transmission in nature.

Both adults had Burmese parents and should be I/i. The kitten has to be I/- to have silver and we believe the light spot to be silver not white. The only conclusion can be that she is a narrow band . We also suggest that the likely reason it shows be due to the sepia gene. This white chest patch is an issue on some Burmese. We postulate most and not all Burmese are golden, narrow band (. i/i. wb/wb). Those that show white patches are likely silver narrow band (I/- wb/wb). One breeding of a locketed Burmese to a golden tabby would prove the point. We therefore believe Robinsons p151 on Lockets needs clarification. We suggest this may be undesirable but should not be a disqualification factor in either the Burmese or Burmilla if we are correct. We understand that the Berrington gene (and we hope we have spelled it correctly) may be related to this same I/- vs ii discussion. The light Champagne Burmese is often said to have the Berrington gene and we think it may just be an I/- Burmese. ...
VANCOUVER, B.C. - The tragic death two years ago of a woman killed by a caged tiger as children looked on helped spur the British Columbia government to implement new rules to ban dangerous pets that could harm the public, says Environment Minister Barry Penner.. Penner said Tuesday that the new Controlled Alien Species Regulation, which came into effect this week, identifies 1,256 species that pose a serious threat to public safety.. The list includes black panthers, lions, tigers, boa constrictors, pythons, some poisonous frogs, monkeys, chimpanzees and caimans.. We are determined to do something to improve public safety while also protecting these species from improperly being brought into British Columbia, said Penner.. He recounted the horrific incident in 2007 in Bridge Lake, B.C., when Tanya Dumstrey-Soos, 32, was clawed by a Siberian tiger owned by her boyfriend and bled to death.. Despite that animal being inside a cage it was able to get its claws get through the cage and sever an ...

written on Tuesday, February 1, 2011 One of the perceived features of a dynamic programming language like Python is the ability to execute code from a string. In fact many people are under the impression that this is the main difference between something like Python and C#. That might have been true when the people compared Python to things like C. Its certainly not a necessarily a feature of the language itself. For instance Mono implements the compiler as a service and you can compile C# code at runtime, just like Python compiles code at runtime.. Wait what. Python compiles? That is correct. CPython and PyPy (the implementations worth caring about currently) are in fact creating a code object from the string you pass to ...

Although most people arent as familiar with the types of animals (snakes, stingrays, crocodiles, and ostriches) killed for this single pair of sneakers as they are with the cats and dogs we share our homes with, these animals are highly sensitive living beings who try hard to avoid capture and suffer enormously when trapped, netted, speared and skinned alive, a spokesperson said on Wednesday.

Reports of successful predator attacks on primates are rare. Primates from all major radiations are particularly susceptible to raptors, carnivores, and snakes. Among New World primates, reports of snake predation are limited to medium- and small-bodied species. Here, we report the first documented case of successful predation of an atelid by a snake-an adult female Purús red howler monkey, Alouatta puruensis, that was subdued by a ca. 2-m-long Boa constrictor in an arboreal setting at a height of 7.5 m above the ground. The victim belonged to a group composed of six individuals (one adult male, two adult females, two juveniles, and one infant) that inhabited a ca. 2.5-ha forest fragment in the State of Rondônia, western Brazilian Amazon. The boa applied the species typical hunting behavior of striking and immediately coiling around its prey and then killing it through constriction (probably in less than 5 min), but the entire restraint period lasted 38 min. The attack occurred around noon. ...

Today has been my favourite day in a long time. My mum and I arrived at Blackpool Reptiles & Aquatics. I knew that I wanted one or two pretty royal pythons. The manager, Dean, went and brought out loads of baby snakes for us to look at. I picked some out that I loved the look of and Dean explained how all the genetics worked and the possibilities of crossing the different combinations of snakes. He answered all the questions I had and his sense of humour made the experience even more enjoyable. He also let me hold one of his adult royal pythons which was happy to slither around me whilst I was choosing my snakes. We finally narrowed it down to three snakes, a male and two females and I decided to get all three. Dean offered me a fantastic deal for all three and then kitted me out with the supplies I needed. The snakes are happily relaxing at home now, switching between laying on their heat mat and swimming in their water bowl. The atmosphere at Blackpool Reptiles & Aquatics was so relaxing and ...
Parrots, and certain snake and lizard species are desirable animals to have as pets. Unfortunately there is associated criminal activity that involves illegal capture from the wild and sometimes exportation of these species. In addition, illegal importation of animals closely related to native ones can possibly lead to the introduction of foreign diseases. It would be of great benefit to have a system by which individual pythons and goannas, their relationships and sex could be identified quickly and accurately. Such a system, a form of DNA fingerprinting, is now available.. The development of a DNA fingerprinting system for pythons and goannas will allow two aims to be addressed. One aim is to gain a better understanding of the evolutionary relationships between species and sub-species popular in the pet trade . A second is to assist in the protection of our natural ecosystems and captive specimens from harm or disease.. To identify the geographic origin of a python or to which family lineage ...

Figure 5. ExoFlow-ONE dyes multiplexed with antibody-conjugated dyes are able to identify subpopulations of EVs. Murine-derived EVs were isolated and co-stained with Emerald Green ExoFlow-ONE and an APC-conjugated antibody against a cell adhesion protein (A) or Emerald Green ExoFlow-ONE and a PE-conjugated antibody against a macrophage membrane protein (B). In panel A, right, two distinct populations of EVs can be seen (Emerald Green axis), each of which expresses a range of the cell adhesion protein (APC axis). In contrast, in panel B, right, while the two distinct populations of EVs can still be seen (Emerald Green axis) the EVs do not appear to express the macrophage-specific protein. Thus, ExoFlow-ONE dyes multiplexed with antibody-conjugated dyes can be used to easily detect subpopulations of EVs. ...
When Tim Blake founded the Emerald Cup 14 years ago, he had no idea it would become one of the worlds premiere outdoor cannabis-growing competitions. In 2013, the events popularity led Blake to remake it. Originally a small, sometimes secret event in Californias Emerald Triangle - an area that includes Mendocino, Humboldt, and Trinity counties - the event became a public affair at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds. Last year, the Emerald Cup drew 30,000 attendees for a weekend devoted to music, education, and the best bud in the business.. When we first came out to Sonoma County, Blake recalls, the farmers thought I was a traitor.. Farmers from the Emerald Triangle - long regarded as the largest cannabis-producing region in the U.S. - were understandably keen to keep things local and off-the-radar. Decades of raids and fear-mongering from law enforcement have left many growers in the area with little interest in increasing their public profile. Far from wanting to alienate a community that ...

module allows the Python programmer to create weak references to objects.. In the following, the term referent means the object which is referred to by a weak reference.. A weak reference to an object is not enough to keep the object alive: when the only remaining references to a referent are weak references, garbage collection is free to destroy the referent and reuse its memory for something else. However, until the object is actually destroyed the weak reference may return the object even if there are no strong references to it.. A primary use for weak references is to implement caches or mappings holding large objects, where its desired that a large object not be kept alive solely because it appears in a cache or mapping.. For example, if you have a number of large binary image objects, you may wish to associate a name with each. If you used a Python dictionary to map names to images, or images to names, the image objects would remain alive just because they appeared as values or keys in ...

One of the first projects for a beginning Python Bioinformatics coder is to construct a dictionary holding the genetic code and use it to translate genes. The other day I posted code for a module defining a class that constructs a Python dictionary holding the Genetic Code using list comprehension. The same class makes a reverse codon dictionary where the keys are amino acids and the values are lists of synonomous codons. It also makes a third dictionary where the keys are codons and the values are lists of synonomous codons, but without the codon that is the key ...

... was in 1964 named by Yang Zhongjian. The genus name combines a reference to the Junggar Basin with a Latinized Greek pteron, "wing". The type species is Dsungaripterus weii, the specific name honouring paleontologist C.M. Wei of the Palaeontological Division, Institute of Science, Bureau of Petroleum of Sinkiang. The holotype is IVPP No. V-2776, a partial skull and skeleton. From 1973 more material has been found including almost complete skulls.. In 1980 Peter Galton renamed Pterodactylus brancai (Reck 1931), a form from a late Jurassic African formation, into Dsungaripterus brancai, but the identification is now commonly rejected. In 1982 Natasha Bakhurina named a Dsungaripterus parvus based on a smaller skeleton from Mongolia. Later this was renamed into "Phobetor", a preoccupied name, and in 2009 concluded to be identical to Noripterus. In 2002 a Dsungaripterus sp. was named based on a wing ...

The result of the rapid growth rate of Salvinia molesta has resulted in its classification as an invasive weed in some parts of the world such as Australia, New Zealand and parts of America. Surfaces of ponds, reservoirs, and lakes are covered by a floating mat 10-20 cm (in some rare cases up to 60 cm) thick. The plants growth clogs waterways and blocks sunlight needed by other aquatic plants and especially algae to carry out photosynthesis thereby oxygenating the water. As it dies and decays, decomposers use up the oxygen in the water. It also prevents the natural exchange of gases between the air & the body of water the plant has invaded causing the waterway to stagnate. This can kill any plants, insects or fish trapped underneath its growth. Its ability to grow and cover a vast area makes it a threat to biodiversity. Large infestations covering a wide area may also pose a problem to migratory birds as they may not be able to recognise an infested ...
