I hear ya......I've actually gone through a few southern copperheads a few years ago....they were ok.....didn't really excite me though. I think I did find my little "niche" with the small colorful tree vipers.......except now, I've had a LITTLE hankering for a rhino. LOL but I know they're a whole nother beast.


:Take it slow bro, all good things come in due time. I would suggest a small (as always) copperhead of any ssp. They are awesome animals, very hardy, and usually problem free captive. If your into the aboreals maybe some popes or atheris to kick it up. Other good hots would be small viridus ssp like great basins, north or south pacifics, etc or if your looking for elapids maybe a coral cobra. Just take your time and eventually you will find the genus of hots that most appeals to you, good luck

::I got my first banana yellow eyelash viper a few weeks ago.....I want more. LOTS more, and I can't help it!!! My pythons/boas are now BORING compared to the awe and respect I feel for my new captive. Help!!!! Also, any recommendations for my NEXT captive are welcome.
