    Mandarins are gorgeous!!! I love the black and yellow, it just pops so beautifully.
    Mangroves are another I'd like to see more commonly in captivity. Another example of beautiful black and yellow.

    No Steelers fan here either (Go Pats!!) but I am a die hard Boston Bruins fan! So the black and yellow works there!!

    I was doing reading about gaboon vipers, and they have the "highest venom yield of any snake."

    That might be what you're thinking of.

    Savu pythons and Mandarin rats have already been mentioned but I will echo them.

    I would love to see more species of Oligodon other than purpurascens enter the hobby. Would be nice to see Rhamphiophis become more readily bred in captivity as well. Would also like to see alterna get back some of the respect they used to have back in the day.

    Re: Uncommon/Underrated Snakes?

    Someone mentioned African House snakes and I agree... super under-rated and easy to keep. An albino African House snake has been on my list of wants for a bit, but I need to get my reptile room/office reorganized first.

    I used to think, for the most part, all snakes were beautiful looking in their own way, but then I saw the Elephant Trunk snake; not all snakes are beautiful looking in their own way. That little bugger just looks wrong. They are uncommon, not sure about the underrated part.

    Does anyone know/like these flabby skinned creatures?

    Ha! Great reply! And I gotta agree, those buggers are, well... less than pretty. It almost looks like they never fully evolved or developed, hahaha.

    Re: Uncommon/Underrated Snakes?

    Once I find a stable supply of quail eggs, (looking at a few stores nearby when I get a chance). I'm going to try to pickup

    a pair of Egg eating snakes, they can be housed together , and eat strictly smaller eggs. Chicken eggs are too big. hopefully next spring maybe

    still working on getting the 2 baby pythons I acquired a month ago stable and going before adding anymore.

    But I think these guys are really Cool.
