Hi Andy,

My personal experience is that except for Chrysopelea ornata which will eat rodents, the C. paradisi and C. pelias show a definite preference for lizards. Taking this into consideration, getting their preferred prey may be a problem.

While I've had a friend who managed to captive breed his paradisi, it's most likely that those which are exported are WC. Good luck!

:I was looking at a few on the classifieds. Seem pretty, and definitely one of a kind as far as species go. I assume they are arboreal or at least semiarboreal. They are said to be feeding on mice. I have experience with WC chondros so I am wondering just how much worse these could be heh. Anyway, any housing info along with temps and humidity readings would be great. As well, I heard the venom is nothing to worry about, but I just wanted to make sure before I brought it into a house with the family's dogs and my brother and parents(def. not snake people). Well...that is about it. Thanks for any help yall can give. Andy
