:: maybe can be urged to pot some pix. Cheers/Dick
Yes, Dick, Thanks. I have photos for all to see. Hey everybody, having met Dick for the first time he is a riot. Totally fun to have met him and had Subway with him.
I like the aestivus. They are beautiful.
The Philodryas patagoniensis are more agressive, but they are very intelligent snakes. The ones we have are stock from Treinta y Tres region, where I suspect they are somewhat different. In this region they have two white stripes not found in populations elsewhere. By the way, local people believe thy feed on poisonous Bothrops. I can't say more about this but they will eat other snakes, as well as anything else. WC adults play dead. My breeder indicates he has seen this behaviour with his own eyes!
Both types are apperantly hotly trade in the European market and are in high demand both for beauty and rarity in collections. We hope you'll click on the links above to see the images.
