    Re: My Venomous Snakes

    I have a question. Did you get prior experience with venomous snakes before owning them in your collection? I'm interested someday owning some like you do. Obviously no time soon since I'm 17 and have no actual experience with snakes like this. Just curious how you got into it.

    Re: My Venomous Snakes

    I had a lot of experience with reptiles before I got into venomous but I was nowhere ready. I jumped in with an albino monocled cobra, which was definitely above my experience level. Thankfully, nothing bad happened but my advice to you is do this properly. Find a mentor close by, put a lot of hours in and get experienced first before buying anything of your own.

    How do you find the temperament on the Boulengerina?

    I like the use of leaf litter in your set ups. I'm surprised more people don't use it.

    Have you kept or are you keeping any other Australian Elapids, like notechis or p. colletti or p. porphyriacus?

    Great thread and snakes man. Thanks for keeping it going.

    Can I make a couple requests if you get a chance:

    1. Another valley of death picture. If possible. Not gonna beg for it if it's a PITA to get.

    2. Get in on the HOTM action. Your snakes are pretty and a couple of them take really good pics. *cough* cobras *cough*

    In my experience, they are very easy to deal with. They are active and somewhat food aggressive but when food is not present, they can easily be manipulated.

    Leaf litter is especially good for dry climate Acanthophis, they feel very secure in it.

    Nope, I only keep Acanthophis. Most other Aussie snakes have pre-synaptic neurotoxins, which I avoid.

    Thanks mate .

    1-I will try to make one with more adders but it may take a couple weeks as I am very busy these days and "Valley of Death" is not an easy task .

    2- What is HOTM? Yeah, cobras are very photogenic . Here is one I just took:

    Re: My Venomous Snakes

    Thank you for sharing these beautiful animals and your experience with us.
    Most of us can't or shouldn't own them but they keep us fascinated.
    Stay safe and keep those great pictures coming.
