A tough snake to frame in the viewfinder


My setup for a pair of Yellow-Stripped Rat Snakes or Common Malayan Racers (Coelognathus flavolineatus)

It's been a while lads and here's an overdue update

3/4 is filling right portion of the north wall. One more 50x80cm and a temp 2footer quarantine tank beside it still to come


The Update of Enclosures shown before...
ViperVille with 2.2.0 Tropidolaemus subannulatus

Thinking of ways to fix a siphon plug to the water tub for water change. Jez takes her food by the tongs now... and if she's got room to spare she'll hit mice, large frogs and even birds as shown here

This new girl also does well with tong-feeding but she seems to be doing find snatching loose geckos along with the lads

The Boiga Ranch with the B. cynodon and the B. drapiezii co-habitating it.

The both have their own fave branch perches an coil space on the leaf littler. For feeding I just chuck in live Euarsian sparrows with the flight wings clipped. The B. cynodon picks them off shyly in the dark of night. A mid-body bulge is the only indication. The B. drapiezii is given geckos by hand/tweezer. Both often remain hidden during the daytime. That real fern in the middle didn't make it and will be replaced by an artificial plant.

The newest Installment for the Mangrove (B. dendrophilla)... kept separate from the rest since it is known prey on other snakes; even adult vipers

It features a foward opening trapdoor boldted down with hinges and a shallow front-side lagoon which sufficient for wading. The favored perch is right up on the top right back corner in the nest artificial ferns. But I managed to get this peek shot by luck.


I'll close with a little panoramic of how Borneo Homelab AKA Reptile House Studios as my band uses this as our regular rehearsal space.


Cheers and best regards as always

FINALLY! Chanced upon the B. cynodon out on a limb in it's enclosure; cloudy-eyed itching to shed. My favourite and most difficult to photograph naturally, notice how it always tucks it's head.

Almost snuggling up to it on it's right was the B. drapiezii; as always charmingly curious at any commotion even the camera.

Again It's usually not advisable to mix different species in the same enclosure but these two seemed to get along very well

Cheers and best regards

Finally After many months of toiling and building.... my HOT-Herp wall is practically done... UPDATE


Starting from top left... Tank 1. - Viperville with 2.2.0 Tropidolaemus subannulatus


Bottom Left Tank 2. - Mangrove Pad for my Boiga dendrophila


Bottom Right Tank 3 - Arboreal Forest for my B. cynodon and my B. drapiezii


and lastly Number 4 which I named the Flooded "Temple" with no occupant yet




And this is how the shelf is situated in my room from an earlier photo...

The 4th Tank was still on the way, there's two big terrariums at the other end with 2 species of Asian Rat Snakes, my drumkit with some amps and guitars lying around as my band rehearses here every week or so....

Cheersssss and bessssst regardssssssss

Some recent updates, a friend of mine found me a 3rd Yellow-Tailed Rat Snake (Gonyosoma oxcephalum) which I have yet to photograph and the Mangrove has unfortunately moved on to greener pastures after succumbing to a respiratory infection.

It will be sadly missed. But the cycle of life goes on... nonetheless

Recently, another friend handed to me a Painted Bronzeback (Dendrelaphis pictus) he caught on the road, and I housed it in the old Mangrove tank. Though I've never seen it do so, the subsequent bulge indicated that it had taken some of the wild frogs that I had chucked in the tank. Roughly two weeks in, I found this at the back left corver of the tank to considerable surprise and amazement. Looks like its a girl.

This species is one of the more common snakes seen in urban backyards but being a very twitchy and skittish snake, it is very hard to run down. They are very fast with a panicky disposition; going into fits and convulsions if they see you pass by and don't take kindly to being handled so I haven't managed to take any good photos of her.

When I took the opportunity to recover the eggs to place them in an incubation tub, she did a number on me. All I heard was a slap of her tail, I turned my head to see if she had got out, but she was no where in sight. So much so that I placed the eggs, closed her cage door and saw that she was nowhere to be seen. That got me stumped but fortunately I sealed all the doors and windows before I service any of my snake cages. I eventually took out all the boxes at the bottom shelf and found her when I lifted the bottom shelf board. Indeed a successful recapture but she was missing for at least an hour and that gave me a sufficient scare. The next time I service cages for these I'm gonna make sure to box them.

Cheers ans best regards

Gonyosoma oxycephalum update: As mentioned in an earlier posts, I recently got a new Red-Tailed Rat Snake from a friend.

With 3 snakes, the enclosure is getting a bit crowded, meaning I'll have to begin work on constructing a larger one.

Here's two of them snuggling together on a basking spot.

Could be a pair but only time will tell.

Cheers and best regards

I am most fond of the Temple pit viper myself, but they're pretty dangerous. Do you handle Jezebel at all if I may ask?
