Sorry I never saw this

It is relatively small and its remarkable beauty belies the fact that it is highly venomous, capable of inflicting some serious, if not fatal harm to any photographer silly enough to get within striking range..."

It's very pretty indeed.
Got a real angry look to it though...

This picture has been edited in Photoshop or something, it’s been saturated with the blues pushed up and yellows dropped, to make the snake seem blue or turquoise with excessive amounts of white, I can assure you that white-lips do not have a blue colour morph, well at least not as far as I know of.

Wow,

If that was possible, it would've made a lot of people very happy...

But it's like steve said, no morphs in whitelipps, yet...

I would assume photoshop too but stranger things have happened. A blue snake like this would just need a reduction on yellow colouration which is not unusual in other snake morphs.

If it is not photoshopped, it is one of the most beautifull snakes i have ever seen!

here.....without any effort i just dropped the blue in the pic a fraction and it almost looks normal. If i had the energy i could open it in photoshop and get it 100%... but it is a fake for sure.

I was watching "Austin Stevens: Most Dangerous" this morning and he pulled a little white lip out of a tree that was blue. Not as vividly coloured as the one in the pic but blue nevertheless.
