Brialliant pics and tattoo. Just watch out for your flash and saturation, you don't want to lose the detail on those pretty things! Your ball pyhtom is so beautifull!

That Oligodon looks nice and chubby. Do you breed them?

Possibly the red lights in the cages should be switched off when you photograph so that it does not look as if the snakes have lipstick on them. Oh yes cool tattoo as well.

BV - I was going to breed them 2 years ago and my female I had got gravid but died when failing to lay the eggs :-( I have still not found a new female to try and breed with them.

Controtrix that is such a pity. They are awesome snakes to keep. I also lost my female and could never find a mate for the male who died about 9 years later. I hope you have more luck than what I did.

Hi! Gorgeous pictures. I am an undergraduate student at Whitman College working on a new entry for the Encyclopedia of Life for the Thrasops species. I am looking for pictures of the snakes to go with the entry. If you are interested in having your images on a published site, please let me know because I would be so grateful! If you have any more images of Thrasops, I would love to see them. Let me know ASAP if you would be interested: kiskadep@whitman.edu. THANKS!
