Excellent mate, great that species.

I do also have some schneideri's in my collection, and their are just absolutely great animals - so sweet and cute 20 centimeters :-P

Have had the red morphes with blue diamond markings, and grey-brownish ones form another locality - unfortunately the red ones didn't accept food, and didn't survive - but the grey ones are absolutely great animals and perfect eaters, they take everything they can kill and swallow.

It's soo cool, really love your pics - I can't get enough form those little adders..... :-P :-)

Seems like it's a red thing cause the babies which BV had also never ate. Always needed force feeding.

The big female eats though, and she is very pretty. Maybe he can post a pic or two again. (hint hint)

Thanks for all the nice comments everybody!

I have never kept reddish ones. But I have found some red nice populations on the west coast. Marco - I think I know where yours came from... ;).

I have only ever worked with the brown/cream/grey coloured ones and they always do well.

Yepp I'am sure you know where my schneideris come from ;) let's see if I can meet him or also someone else in Namibia this year. Will be there between End of October till about of November. So if someone's there I would be happy to have a mate for a picture hunt :-)

Will try to take pics of everything that moves :roll: :cool: Especially Dwarf Adders.

Are there any specific places and locations you can recommend ?
