i used to keep t.albolabris and a wagler's when i was 11.. i got bitten when i was 14 so i was kinda traumatized LOL..

i'm focusing more on our local snake species now (which turns out that a great majority of them are rear-fanged) bounce

i'm getting a whip snake & a paradise snake this saturday. i'll post pics up once i get them Very Happy

That vine snake is a beauty, and pretty interesting looking. What's its scientific name?

Ouch...that sounds a pretty serious incident, if it was from one of those two.

Ahaetulla prasina or nasuta (disputes).. and it's a SHE.. I've read that they're a parthenogenic species, Well that's an event that i gotta see Very Happy


well yeah i've been hospitalized for more than 2 weeks. my arm swelled bigger than my thigh with pulsating pain at the site of the bite. what's worse is that there are no antivenoms here in the Philippines for this snake (which sucks big time!)

hopefully i wasn't tagged that bad but my right index finger is deformed now though >_<

Cool snakes!! I have a Western Coachwhip snake which was wild caught here it Texas. He looks like your Common Wolf Snake except he has bigger eyes.

I have handled an Asian Vine Snake in a pet store. I almost bought him but I was worried about getting him to eat frozen/thawed pinkie mice. I have heard that they usually only take lizards. What do you feed yours?

my vine snake love frogs. it could eat 3 frogs in a single night. actually all of them eat frogs thank goodness. i buy the frogs from a dealer at a very famous pet center here in our country that sells for like half a dollars worth each.

speaking of coachwhip, i'll be acquiring a keel-bellied whipsnake, which is a very rare snake in the south-east asian region & a paradise snake this sat. ooh i can't wait! both of them eat frogs too.

i'd love to feed them with geckos which are more common here but difficult to catch (not to mention embarrasing if someone sees what you're doing) lol

Hum that gets me thinking. Here where I live we have a lot of toads but they are seasonal. I'm not sure if they would eat a toad as well. They might be poisonious for the snake. I could look into that.

I have heard that sometimes you can get the vine snakes to eat frozen/thawed pinky mice. I remember reading somewhere that you should not give them mice with hair as the hair is not good for lizard eating snakes. Not really sure about that though. Have you ever tried a pinky?

nope. toads are poisonous and thankfully all of out toad species here are huge and a vine snake will find it virtually impossible to eat, let alone appealing. i offer frogs only since we have a lot of tree frogs and field frogs.

nope havent tried the pinky not becoz i dont want to but becoz its not available or commonly sold here.

or more like a nice fat gecko Very Happy

she's now about 2 and a half feet long and thin like a pencil. she has a max length of up to 5ft in the future and i'm pretty sure she's gonna be as skinny as she is now. an endemic snake and a vulnerable species too. oh and did i mention she's mildly venomous and parthenogenic? Very Happy

Parthenogenic critters amaze me. It just seems strange but I'm sure there is a good reason for it. Your whipsnake is probably rear fanged??? Isn't your vine snake also a bit venomous? The one I handled in a pet store was jumpy but did not seem interested in biting. Long, wispy snakes are cool!

yup they are rear-fanged and more venomous than the vine snake but their mouth is so small that they rarely pose any threat Very Happy

mildly venomous. she's rear-fanged you see. well apparently i confirmed early this morning that she hates being misted/sprayed at. she knows what the spray bottle looks like and she'll puff at it or strike lol..

having said that, she's actually quite docile when she's dry Very Happy

she'll tightly coil on the wood and just sit there. i usually hang her amongst the orchids on my veranda during early morning so she can bask herself in the sun
