This is interesting, so cool to see a new species to the forum.
How long can they stay under water? Do they have adaptions that enables them to extract oxygen from water?

They can stay down up to 40minutes before they rise their upper body and stick their head over the water to get some fresh air.

I will take some more pictures of the snakes when i get back home with my camera wich i have left at work.

Cheers, Ronny
