    Now that my own hot collection is growing back beyond where it use to be, I cant imagine having to drop them again. Sad to see your venomous has shrunk so much, but always understandable.

    Cheers

    Mate, it really is painful. Most of all, I miss my white cobra. But I gotta say I like my human baby more than the snakes .

    In the meantime, my water cobras are getting fat for the upcoming breeding season. These are adults now, I raised them from tiny hatchlings and they are still very calm animals...

    These animals come from the Samar Island in the Southern Philippines. Although they are true spitters, adults rarely do so and this is a nice spitter to work with. Also, their colors are so amazing, this just makes them the most beautiful Naja species in my opinion and they stay around 3ft range, less than a meter in most cases. The only problem with them is their 'attitude'. These guys are always angry and they do not take prisoners. Someone I know used to say that if they were 6 ft instead of 3, we would probably be all evolved from them .


    Ok, here is my female, which is a whopping 1.3 meters, very large for this species:

    I cannot go back to venomous snakes yet, having a super inquisitive toddler, who is already crazy for all the animals he sees. I need 4-5 years at least for a collection like I used to have. But I took the risk to get one Gila Monster baby to satisfy the itch to a degree. I think he is absolutely gorgeous and we love him to bits...
