Sounds great! Asian snakes are'nt commonly kept here. They're still "new" to this side of the ocean. If I named all the species I've heard of I could count them on one hand with fingers left over.
I agree, sipedon in all it's variations is a tremendous species. Taxispilota are real cool! Their eyes sit high on their head (I think like tesselata) and their heads are quite long. My sister just gave me an eighty gallon (240 litre?) aquarium which my wife is allowing me to put upstairs WITH the brown water snakes in it!!!! Over 25 years of married bliss and finally I can enjoy some of my hobby in luxurious comfort. I love her! Anyway, I'll try to get some decent pictures soon.
Natrix, maura, tesselata; be still my beating heart.
Michael
