Thanks. I like the skaapie pic also.

The aulica has been with me for quite a few years now. He lives a secretive life, spending most of his time hiding away. He eats a live pinky every now and then. Dont feed him often, but he never refuses a meal. These snakes shed cycles are far and few in between. They also never loose the bad attitude they where born with, incredibly feisty snakes. Slender and beautiful. I've tried selling this snake on in the past, but in hindsight I'm glad on one took it, coz it would have been my loss.

Dean, please post a full length pic of the Skaapie, he is too good looking for just a head shot.
