After reading the issues our forums are experiencing because of social media and people not posting as usual I thought I'd start sharing everywhere again :D

Facebook just doesn't have the same impact compared to a forum !

Enjoy !

Thanks guys ! They are incredible snakes but scary fast and a bit nervous compared to the other species.

Crazy scales.

Glad to see they are doing so well.

What I find strange about the scales is not so much the large size, but the fact that adjacent scales have differing sizes, especially evident in the last photo.

Amazing animal! Those scales look like pop-up shading, should be called Graffiti!

Amazing as usual Louis :D And these are way more impressive in person than on the pictures. The pictures do not do them justice
