Just a few pics of my little caudalis. He's about 15cm and weighs a whole 20 grams... Still a tiny fellow.

Thanks everyone!
Oh, and I meant to put she. It's a little girl. Sorry bout that.

@Whitelipp: Great news. My female Gabby sometimes gets very moody aswell and then deceides that she would much rather have been born as a Puff Adder... It's rather frightning! At least your girl should eat well. Enjoy them!
I think my caudalis was born around November last year.

@nvlooi: Got her from Creatures & Critters.

I had a caudalis about 7 years ago that I got from pietersburg and it was basically a blueish geyish color with litttle to no pattern. Does anybody know where that pattern is from? sorry no pics-I gave it to a snake park about 2 years ago.

Western Cape? I have seen them from there grey with feint markings and blue down the sides.
Those were found around Beaufort West.

The one above is typical Limpopo province
