Stunning animals you got there. Love the forest cobra.

A quick tip: Some of the members are not that clued up on snakes and thus it would be appreciated if you give the common and scientific names of the animals next time you post a photo.

How many cobras do you keep?

I'd also be interested what material the hide out is made off.

Man I'm inlove with those Forests! I have to echo what Eyelash said, how big are the Forsets?

Are those banded Snouties, I see a tail there with some bands or maybe its just me needing to get glasses ;).

Im curious to find out what else you have.

Great setup, looks very healthy from what I can see, looks like their been eating their veggies.

@Wolf777 sorry guess i got a bit carried away(: will do next time. I have 3 Forest cobras and 3 Snouted cobras. The Snouted cobras are not banded unfortunately. The male is that awesome chocolate brown and the female, which you can only see the back half of, is a mottled yellow and brown (best way i can describe it). They are both in the 1.2m range, so still pretty small.
The Forest cobras are a bit bigger, the female is roughly 1.6-1.7m and highly dislikes being measured while the males are 1.2m give or take.
The cage setup is just E-mulch with large pieces of bark that have been baked in the oven for a while, simple but attractive. Il take some pictures of my enclosures over the weekend.
Other venomous species are Cape coral snakes, Puff adders, and Natal blacks (which is another species people seem to under appreciate). I have a few other non and mildly venomous species but i will post those under the correct sections.
Thanks for all the compliments guys, im glad my photos were ok but il get better ones sometime dont worry(:, these dont do the critters justice.

Cheers

Awesome, thanks for sharing! Looking forward to the pictures of the enclosures...

I love the SA forest, I only keep the Uganda Forest with the zebrastriped faces
My way of keeping snakes and the way I handle them is my way and not to copy or taken as example. Working with venomoussnakes can be risk with deadly ending.
