They are often se...

What you're talking about is probably a horned adder (bitis caudalis)

Re: Hedgehog babies

They make quite nice pets. The only downsides is that you can't exactly cuddle them :lol: but you can sit with them and let them run around a bit. They seem like slow animals but when i put mine into my outdoor aviary they run around like guinea pics. They are easy to house, all they need is a wire ...

Re: Solutions!

You could try the lure it out with food. Even though its winter and it will probably not eat the food, cobras are very inquisitive and it might venture a metre or so out of the hole to check out something smelling lekker.

Re: Parktown prawns - Libanasidus vittatus

On a good summer night I can find 5+ in my garden. I thought about breeding them but they are very cannibalistic, well when I put them in a tub together they immediately start biting each other, how do you prevent this when breeding them?
