Do N. annulifera occur in Egypt? I thought the egyptian ones were N. haje.

BV, you are right. N.haje is found from East Africa up into North Africa where as N.annulifera is restricted to southern Africa

WW please correct me if I am wrong.

Is this specimen from Egypt then? The nose does look rather pointed, like a snouted cobra?

Maybe continue with pictures of a new one every day. We hardly ever get to see any animals from the Philippines so you will be busy for quite a while.

sure, the specimen is indeed a Naja annulifera, and she is not from egypt. the parents are from somewhere southern africa. i need to check my files to get the exact location.

Nice pic man. No collection is complete without one of these :D
I like candlelight dinners, romantic walks on the beach and poking dead things with a stick.
