Some Telescopus pics (Tigersnake)

Ok, here is one of my dhara (Egyptian tigersnake) and 4 of my semis (T. semiannulata : Common tigersnake)

as you can see from the semis, they are highly variable. I have bright orange to a washed out "hypo" phase. Much breeding happening

What a pleasure!

Best of luck in breeding them and raising the babies.
