Terrific species, one of my favorites. We had great success with adults in 2x2x2 (ft) cube cages, with higher perches covered with cork bark flats or tubes. Really a great display snake. Enjoy them!

Congrats Louis! These are very special.
Good luck with the incubation and rearing the babies.

Great stuff Louis.
If I'm gonna be an old, lonely man, I'm gonna need a thing, you know, a hook, like that guy on the subway who eats his own face. So I figure I'll be Crazy Man with a Snake, y'know. Crazy Snake Man. And I'll get more snakes, call them my babies, kids won't walk past my place, they will run. "Run away from Crazy Snake Man, " they'll shout!”

Thanks Ferdo !

@ it_bit_me, not at all. I prefer it as I need paperwork to send them (or any other snake for that matter) to the cape provinces.
