that's why I have one myself. Quite an attitude too but has calmed down somewhat compared to what he was in the beginning. I can now pick him out from the cage and although he will hood up, he will usually not bite. But once in a while, he'll do so just to let me know. :)
My present collection is:
0.1 Reticulated python
1.0 Mangrove snake(Boiga dendrophila)
1.1 Corn snakes
1.0 Gonyosoma oxycephala
Besides the above, I also have 4 tarantulas - 2 Old World species and 2 New World species.
: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.
: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.
