Thrasops jacksonii

Postby Contortrix » Fri Feb 22, 2008 9:31 pm

Is there anyone on the forum that has been bitten by Thrasops jacksonii or know anyone that have been? Their venom is supposed to be very similar to boomslang (Dispholidus) but they have not the same advanced way of delivering the venom. I keep a pair that i'll try and breed later this yearm my female is the biggest and are totally calm but the male is really stressed out when handled and puff up it's neck but never tries to bite.

I want to hear stories, experienses and everything regarding Thrasops jacksonii.

Thanks. Ronny
