One of Gavin's Sri Lankan Palm Vipers dropped last night, so thought I'd share some photos. These are the ones he took out this morning - she's had a few more since. The babies are gorgeous, and nice and big :D

Beautiful!
You know, you can touch a stick of dynamite, but if you touch a venomous snake it’ll turn around and bite you and kill you so fast it’s not even funny.

Such nice snakes.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Thanks everyone.

I'm not sure how many babies this particular female had. By the time I left for work this morning, she had dropped 9.

Congratulations!!! These are supposed to be sexually dimorphic in color? In the first pic are there 3 females and the bluish male underneath?

Those are a good size! nice and healthy, most neonates iv seen of this species have been small and for the most part weak in comparison.
Well done Gav!
