No stress. Everybody is getting plenty caudalis, xeropaga and cornuta from Namibia these days. That too will become something of the past very soon. Believe me when I say Adrianx with his 1 Namibian caudalis is small bait. Enjoy it. It seems healthy.

You should sell the snake and buy a camera.

Now why say something stupid like this? Like I said in one of my previous posts, If you don't like it, skip my post and move on, maybe find yourself a coloring book to keep your fingers busy...

Don't get me wrong, I'm not that actually this big ass! I'm just growing tired of hipocrats and their criticism. If there is one thing that I have learned from sharing pictures and info online, it's there will always be that special person shooting you down for no reason.

The point I'm trying to accomplish is simple, I take photo with cellphone (not fancy camera), I transfer photo to computer, I upload photo to website, I share photo with public and other people that would actually appreciate it. So, it's not specifically aimed for your narrow-minded attention! That simple!

Understand me, If it weren't for "insignificant little people" like me finding interest in these wonderful creations of God and someday growing into these "hot-shot-know-it-alls" like you, this "hobby" would have never existed in the first place!

If I'm wrong, I apologize.
If I'm right then, UP YOURS BUDDY!

Yes, they are captive bred, apparently these are the 3rd generation. The guy that collected the first specimens did so a couple of years back, so I'm told..

You cant breed 3 generations in a couple of years! Three generations would mean at least 9 years in these snakes. Unless this guy breeds them at one year of age. I dont see anything wrong with what superciliaris said.

Did you read the post? I said "so I'm told" whether it's true I don't know. But, the guy I got from isn't into talking cr@p that often and a couple doesn't necessarily mean 3,4 or even 5 years ago. his words was and I quote; "nee f**, ek kan nie onthou waar presies in namibië ek die wyfie gekry het nie, dit was baie lank terug" and that was the specimen originally collected.

I can't seem to understand why you don't see anything wrong with what Superciliaris said, It's a plain forward cocky and unasked for remark with no relevance to the topic.

I took superciliaris' comment as a joke, nothing more. As for the female being collected, would that mean that the male was from a different locality? Or was she gravid when collected?

I understand that the female was gravid when collected.

Maybe it was meant as a joke, maybe not. But, it was damn rude!

How was that rude? He implied that you should get a camera that would take photos that would do the snake justice! We must have hit a nerve by doubting the origins of the animal. There are a few members on this forum that are experts in the field of Bitis. And by the way, you should look in the dictionary to see what the word couple means. You might be surprised.

Drama aside i think the yellow is lovely, very different in this species, i think with some good breeding genetics you could breed some very nice yellow specimens from this animal.
Good luck with her.
