Usually not that dark. More an olive green with those specks. They usually loose them as they get older.

What is that... looks like a Herald that saw a ghost.

Interesting specimen.

Wow now that does not look like our heralds at all. Reminds me of a file snake.

My first thought when seeing this picture was, mmmmmm, Hybrid - Herald x File. Nah, couldn't be, or could it.

Thx for your reply. I own 1.1 own these snakes. Hope to breed them in the next years, they are absolutely problemless and eating fine.

@ Nexus - Are they on Pinks, if so, was it difficult to get them onto pinks?

No chance of it being a hybrid Roland, because rather then mate with a herald, I'm almost convinced a file snake would much rather eat it! mmm...

Not a hybrid. A picture looks sometimes different, they have some nice whitelipps..
They eat sliced frog from a asiamarked (frozen).
So there is no necessary for me to twitch them at the moment.
