I love Deinagkistrodon, always have! Unfortunately I dont have any so i can't share pics. I am working on getting some nice hypomelanistic ones though, :smt017 so watch this space, maybe.

My Deinagkistrodon story

Postby Bob H » Fri Nov 14, 2008 4:35 pm

I thought this might be the place to share my Deinagkistrodon account. About 4 yrs ago, I picked up a nice pair of sharp-nosed vipers. The following year they bred and produced a nice clutch of eggs, but the male prolapsed one of his hemipenes (left) and noting I could do (soaking in sugar solutions, hemmorhoidal salves, etc)could get it to go back to normal. Within a couple of days, I was forced to surgically remove it. Hey, he still has one right! Recovery was uneventful and for the last two years he has courted the female for days, but he just must have been left handed (I mean left hemipenised) because both years he was unsuccessful at impregnating the female. Maybe this year???
