Nice.

Nice - I wish the pictures were a bit bigger though.

Beautiful Bjorn. They look in lovely condition.

Good luck with breeding them. Nice to see CB animals doing well.

Hello Rob
Yes I must say I have a lot of fun with them.
They are very active ( maybe more than other Dwarfbitis) and eating like hell. So far I can say, that they are easy to keep. I hope they still doing well in the future but I´m in confidence.

Thanks so far to all

Thanks. Much better!

I love the subtle pinks in the first specimen.

I'd love to describe those snakes, but I can not think of any suitable words to possibly describe something that beautiful. Is this species bred in South Africa? Other than in Natal(permit issues)

They are priceless in the wild Louis. I have recaptured four females over 50 times now ' getting good data on reproductice cycles. Sadly had 8 roadkills last year, two were known to me.

Do not try and collect from my site or my baboon buddy will kill you; and if he doesn't then my Ostrich buddy will get you!

Hello Mr Phelps

Ok ok I stop collecting from your side and fly back to Germany. I already collected enough from your side. Next time I go to West Coast Nat Park I promise. So you can leave your barboon frind where he is. I'm not sure about your Ostrich to be earnest I had Ostrich for dinner looked like yours sorry but so much collecting makes hungry.
