Very pretty snake, represented well with a great picture!

I am yet to see a red/brown cornuta in the wild, but I hope to do so some day.

Thank you for sharing Henco.

Thanks mate.

I've seen so many pictures of red/brown cornuta and always thought they are something special... until I saw it for myself...

AMAZING I reckon it would be the same feeling the day I see my first red rubida.
