    Okay that's what I was confused about. He said he had never dealt with N. Christyi which are the ones you have correct? I know the genus changed but what confused me is that the only two Boulengerina were the annulata and Christyi(which are the ones you have?) so I figured the size may of been an assumption by him. I know the information on wiki about them is a bit off.

    There are three species mate:

    N.annulata
    N.christyi
    N.sp "Congo"

    The confusion is due to both christyi and undescribed species coming from Congo.

    What I have is the undescribed species, smallest of all three.

    That makes even more sense. I wish they were more studied and available.

    I love cobras! Do water cobras have a 'hood' that fans out like the typical cobra everyone thinks of?

    Water cobras have a very narrow hood and they hardly ever display it, very though to catch on camera.

    Here are a couple of the cobras, which I had when I was in the States hooding:
