Hi All

I know someone on the forum who has possible het scaleless Puff Adders, but I haven't seen any of the Corns of Texas Ratsnakes locally, which are common in the US.

I saw a photo of a scaleless brown house snake found earlier this year, so who knows what might pop up in the future!

A little interesting read. I also wanted one, up until I saw the £/$ 1000 price tag...
