Stunning looking snake. They always look better under natural light in my opinion.

Lol, sometimes it pays off to lose your mind and end up with something like her.

I'm sure it does. Just Hot snakes is not something I'd feel comfortable keeping at home.
I had the chance to take a Vipera berus couple of weeks back that a friend had found and brought it for me to ID (he thought it was soome type of colubrid Bang Head ) but I refused.

Ya, know what you are saying. There is always a chance of a bite and it happens more often than not.
Chances of the snake escaping these days are very scarce but it could still happen and you dont want a venomous snake loose in yout home. Family are very vulnerable at this moment and it makes you feel quite uneasy just thinking about it.
This is why my snake room is always locked with rubber strips on the bottom of the door and all my venomous snake cages are locked.
Vipera berus are awesome looking snakes! They are pretty scarce in the hobby over here and very expensive.

+1

So are V. ammodytes (the second "hot" sp. in the wild here). Both are really not available for hobbyists locally, you would have to import a CB one with documents from central europe, as these are locally protected and keeping any WC specimen is punishable by law.

Sounds the same as over here, in my province you cant keep any WC specimens and all CB reptiles need permits to keep. In other provinces in my country people can catch indigenious reptiles and keep them without any permits which is a bit stupid as I think the whole country should have the same law concerning reptiles.

We don't need permits for reptiles or inverts. But some reptiles need to have proper documentation to prove they're CB. And they must be registered at the ministry of environment. These incluse most (or all - I'm not sure) hots, all boidae, monitors, iguanas, etc... colubrids and geckos,for example, do not need to be registered.

Thanks guys.
Lol, that coral is a real clown. When he gets mad he does the hood and strikes at you but most of the time he just lands on his face Smile

Nice snakes, the Whipsnake reminds me of a Boomslang a little(which I'm trying to get) and the Shieldnose looks like a cobra. I really like the pattern on the head of the Brown House Snake as well. Do you keep any other reptiles? I'm going to be taking pics of my snakes tonight so I can update my post in this section.

Thanks man! Hope you come right with the Boomslang, they are notorious for not feeding on rodents and are very difficult to breed so good luck Smile

Cool snakes! Are the Brown House Snakes usually calm to handle when captive born?

Thanks man. Yes, they are very chilled snakes. Mine have never struck at me but they are one of the most aggressive feeders in my collection.

I love aggressive feeders that don't bite! I have a carpet python like that. She will NEVER miss a meal and just about comes out of her cage to eat when she smells a rat. However she is very docile. My 10 year old daughter carries her around on her neck like she is a necklace.
