In Reply to: BGF looking for info on Genus Dendrelaphis(bronzebacks) posted by JustinM. on September 18, 2002 at 22:22:57:
:I recently purchased the book "A Photographic Guide to SNAKES and Other Reptiles of Pennisular Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand" by Merel J. Cox, Peter Paul van Dijk and Kumthorn Thirakhupt.
Excellent book. What a regional field guide should be but rarely is.
:The book has photos/brief descriptions about the Genus Dendralaphis. The Genus has some very beautiful snakes called bronzebacks(particularly the elegant bronzeback D. formosus and Cohn's bronzeback D. striatus). Can you tell me if anyone has successfully kept this Genus in the U.S. and anything about their venom? I'm assuming they are rear-fanged like most asian snakes...........LOL. Thanks for your help:)
Venoms not an issue and they are easy to keep (lizard and frog feeders but you might be a larger one onto pinkies). Neat snakes.
