:and one final quetion, what do you know about the rufous beaked snake?
Sorry for my delay in responding, as I was out of town for the Thanksgiving holiday. I don't have any personal experience with beaked snakes, aside from hearing BGF say that their venom is something to give a little respect to. I can't remember the person's name, but someone has posted a few pictures of his/her beaked snake on here rather recently, and the lighter one especially an incredibly gorgeous snake. They are certainly on my list to consider trying to breek at some point. As to husbandry though, try contacting the person posting the pictures as he/she should be able to help you.
