Nice Jack. Its quite difficult to get an idea of the red color from a photograph.

Where do yours originate from? Were they cb in US when you got them?

The ones we find here are a nice shade of red, although some tend to go more towards the orange shade...Stilll, Excelent Snakes to keep...

From Limpopo, on a SARCA trip, check out a better picture Marius took in the new book, Reptiles of Southern Africa.

All of these were imported from Tanzania. There actual capture locations are sketchy but they are all wild caught animals. Two were via Don at Mfezi.com and two via another source.

I got my female from Reptile Wonders in Vredenburg and the male I got from rubida on this site.

Thanx, jka, can you give me an email address or phone number.

It would be great if you can PM the information to me.

alexander,

I really like that snake, almost more pink then red. Where is it from, do you have it now or is it still in the wild, etc.
