Cape Coral???

Postby Dasypeltis_SA » Mon May 28, 2012 2:34 pm

A friend said he has a Aspidelaps l. lubricus (female), but if I saw the snake, I would say it is a bastard of an Aspidelaps l. lubricus and A. l. infuscatus or it is maybe a Aspidelaps. l. cowlesi. So what have we got here? Can someone help. http://www.flickr.com/photos/dasypeltis/7255245162/in/photostream/

It does look like a bastard. Would you like to breed this snake.
If I'm gonna be an old, lonely man, I'm gonna need a thing, you know, a hook, like that guy on the subway who eats his own face. So I figure I'll be Crazy Man with a Snake, y'know. Crazy Snake Man. And I'll get more snakes, call them my babies, kids won't walk past my place, they will run. "Run away from Crazy Snake Man, " they'll shout!”

If it is for sure no bastard, then for sure not with my Aspidelaps. l. lubricus, I have here at home. But here it is hard to find a male. Aspidelaps l. cowlesi is not much common here in our Terrariums.

There are plenty of A. l. cowlesi in Germany. I am making the assumption here that you are from there.

Advertise that you are looking for them and use the old name too as many people still call them A. l. infuscatus. I found quite a few on http://www.terraristik.com just use the search button.

Jep I'm from Germany and I was not looking for another one (male). The snake is not mine, its from a friend and he bought her as a Aspidelaps l. lubricus.
