Its a 3 way tie for me between the Black Mamba, the Papuan Taipan and the Many Banded Krait. [Yeah I'm a big fan of deadly elapids!]

Well at the moment it's a Leucistic Texas Rat snake ( which I own ) but all time favorite, I would have to say a Leucistic Ball Python.

I like them too... I had the opportunity to hold one in new Delhi at the india gate. They have 'snake charmers' who use them to make money - I think the mouth was sewn closed if I'm not mistaken... can't stand that.

What they normally do is pull out the fangs with anything they can get,then it will get in some infection etc.. Its a shame to say that most of that "money making" snakes only survive for a few months and then die of starvation :(
