Bad news:

Due to numerous reasons I recently decided to get out of hots and sold off my collection of Jumping Vipers, Desert Horned Vipers, Wagler's Vipers, and Coral/Shield-Nosed Cobras. I enjoyed these species immensly and was sad to get rid of them but it was the right thing to do.

I still technically own a pair of Mamushi's but they are on permanent loan to a friend of mine who keeps hots.

Good news:

Before I got rid of the collection I brought in 3.3 Gonyosoma oxycephala (normal green-type) and this is all I have at the moment. Fortunately this is my favorite species and always has been. Why I waited so long to work with them again I do not know.

I also traded the last of my hots for a male Emerald Tree Boa - a species I've never owned. Looking forward to keeping him during his quarantine period before he is sent off to spend some quality time with my friend's female. I may bring back his male Morelia viridis for a while - another species I've not worked with in years.

Where the collection goes from here I do not know. Right now I'm enjoying working with a small group of this notoriously difficult species.

BTW, Scrubs are awesome.
