Some pictures from my female Naja pallida.
She's pretty defensive and spitts a lot But after that, it's a great animal to work with ;)

Now this snake will keep her colour. I like it. The ones I have seen locally look too brown for my liking.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Nice little beauty!
Reminds me on my placement in the Berliner Zoo in the eastern region when i was 16.
I have worked there in the Reptile section.
And in the quarantine they had the little red Spitter neonates.
I spent all my breaks in the quarantine room just to watch the little beautys.

A beautiful snake indeed. How old is she? It seems she's very active.

She is CB 2009. She is about 85-90 cm long.

She is unlike other pallida's very defensive and also spits directly several times.
Working with two hooks is hard to do, she will be easily and instantly fall off the hook.
I'm glad she's almost big enough to secure tail, it will be easier going.
Even though she is rather difficult to handle, but I'm very happy with her. ;)

@ Eyelash.
Breeding was/is never been my priority. First I would buy a few other snakes
and if I still have some money left, then we'll see...

Very nice snake. I love that first pic of her. It looks like she has a personality of her own.

I see, it's a yearling and it seems they grow quite fast. As I recall it, these snakes become about 1.5m as grown ups.
