Bitis atropos "unicolor"

Postby Rob » Sat May 23, 2009 11:49 am

Who says Bitis atropos from Mpumalanga are ugly?
Anyone who says that has never actually seen one.

TP - No shes not obese, shes got a huge dump on board. I feed them one fuzzy every 3 to 4 weeks :-P

Really really pretty Rob. If you ever drop some babies then please forget me not.

Rob the areas where they occur have no sand whatsoever. It is soft soil and rocks. Possibly you should really give her substrate a re-think.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

BV - Thats not what I keep her on. That was just the same set I made for pics of my caudalis and cornuta.

I keep them on that fake grass that landscapers use, with hides that form rock slabs I made from polystyrene. Very unatural but it works very well. Looks ok and they seem comfortable on it.

Thanks
I cant say how old she is. I got her as an adult almost a year ago.
They have been mating so who knows. Its hard to cool them here on the coast but Ill certainly try.
