In Reply to: Does anyone have information on Atheris Hispida? posted by viperman on April 28, 2003 at 17:29:58:
took the male to a zoo vet and had him started on flagyl and panacur. he has small black parasites in his mouth that could not be identified. maybe flukes? waiting on return results. the female is getting fat, possibly gravid. we force fed her a pinky and started her on the same treatment. we are going to try to keep the parasites at bay until we feel the snakes have acclimated. they love to be misted, we actually get to mist them in their mouths. they are very curious and calm. after pinning and force feeding we could never get a strike. if anyone has information on the times they give birth in the wild would be greatly appreciated. we have had them 29 days and counting!
