My new addition - atheris ceratophora

I recently acquired this atheris ceratophora male. One of my favourite atheris species. He is doing great, eaten 2 pinks so far without too much effort. Here are 2 pics - hope you enjoy http://www.sareptiles.co.za/gallery/albums/userpics/15879/small1.jpg http://www.sareptiles.co.za/gallery/albums/us...
