everybody thanks for your reply,
as for the charactaristics of this beastie,i dont keep N.mossambica myself but can tell you that this animal
is a very nervous one i really dont have anything here that compares....yet maybe my Naja.n.naja when they are adults.
but most people i know who have a pallida all say that its a laid back species most of the time.
guess i have an exception then :lol:
Cheers!
Kind Regards,

Hey Ralf, nice pictures M8!
But my pallida is also a nervous critter. My mossambica is layed back, with the exception with feeding (feeding frenzy).

It is far better to have a nervous snake because then you will never take a chance with it. When they are laid back is when you take a chance and get bitten.

With spitters the drawback is the spraying on the glass but the N. pallida I had never spat as easily as the mossambica did so maybe they are a little more laid back. A deep cage also helps to keep the glass clean.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.
