Finally done Wolfgang??? ƒº
I¡¦m glad that its finally done with the ?genus? Pailses , knew for sure that it was Pseudechis . I have seen them appear from the egg grow to adult, I also know they are quit Ophiophag, I had have it many times that I needed to safe a specimen of being eaten when they were together for mating. In behaviour Yes, they act like the many Pseudonaja species I have handled when I was in Australia. But aggression or better said defense is not the thing to create a new species of snake that looks like a kingbrown in small. He I¡¦m not a scientist, but just the nutcase that enjoys snakes.
Some pictures of my Pseudechis , gorgeous snakes,
With Best Regards,
Richard Mastenbroek (Mr Taipan)
: It is with profound gladness that the demise was announced today of Pailsus, oldest genus-level offspring of Raymond T. Hoser, and elder sibling of Katrinus and Lenhoserus.
: Pailsus was weakened from birth due to insufficiently developed scientific evidence. During its short life, it was dogged by controversy, and, in its weakened state, was unable to resist a brief attack of DNA sequence analysis. Experts now fear that a similar fate may befall its siblings Katrinus and Lenhoserus, which suffer from similar congenital birth defects.
: Additional memorial services will be held in the near future in the peer-reviewed literature, and will be announced here and elsewhere. Contributions in the shape of reprint requests will be gladly accepted at that time.
: A preliminary post-mortem report may be consulted at the link below.
