Geez!
Evolution is an imperfect and often violent process. A battle between what exists, and what is yet to be born.

Stunning.
And God has Created every animal from water, of them are some creeping on their bellies, some walk on two legs, and some on four. God Creates what He wills, for sure God has Power over all things. (Noble Quran 24:45)

Nice photo of a very interesting house snake.

In my experience they are very timid, highly strung and frighten easily. Like spotted house snakes, they are not snakes one can handle. They are very elusive and not many seen, unless you know where to find them.

Don't mean to hijack your post Johnny, yet i have some pics of 2.2 I have had at some stage. I think they have such gentle looking faces.

Hey I remember those.
Such pretty snakes.

Hi Fooble, I had one feeding on pinks and the other on geckos. In the past i have had some that refused all types of food.
