    Lol, poor choice of words. I smack him, but it's relative to his size, wouldn't wanna hurt him, just let him know what he did was wrong :)

    Btw, before I got my own snakes, I've been a long time watcher of your YouTube videos. I was amazed by you handling your tigers like you do mate, balls of steel. I was surprised when I saw you posting on here :)

    Pre-ocular = before the eye I'm guessing,

    Sub caudal - behind head? I know caudal is toward head and dorsal is toward the *** end. I am a vet tech student, still much to learn.

    Am I right with these two?

    You said that you were 'glad' about it's actions.

    Why are you going on about this? I thought we sorted it out?

    Sub caudal= under the tail.
    Dorsal= on the back.

    Caudal, from latin cauda....meaning tail. Dorsal, from dorsum.....meaning back.

    Pre-ocular......correct. :)

    I said "in this instance" meaning if the dog and a snake happened to have a run in, I'm glad the dog won. I never said I was glad that he attacked the snake.

    You're the one going on, I replied to snakeman who outlined what he thought you meant, and I apologised to you with my nee understanding of your post (which was wrong because you were talking about my attitude, not my dog) and then you made another post regarding my attitude.

    Anyway, as I said a few times, spud is a timid little dog and he usually leaves stuff alone. He probably stood on it or something and it reared up. If those were the circumstances, I am glad my dog was the victor.

    I have to do more Study -.- lol. Cheers

    You should have said that in the first instance and then we wouldn't have had to go through all of this.

    You replied= you're going on about it. I said OK then and you kept going...

    Some people on here, they know who they are, should seriously get a life, this forum is not here to ridicule and torment people that are on here, he asked a simple question and all you have in return, you know who you are, is to pick apart his post and b*@#h about anything you can get an argument out of. GET A LIFE !!!! Some people on this forum make me sick.

    oh boy - another dead horse to flog. I love when these zombie threads lurch back to life and wander down Internet threads crying out "BRAIIINS! BRAIINS". They rarely find any too!
    BTW - Keelback - I've left an image with a subtle hint pointing out the loreal scale on the animal. The head shape is also a tell, though the colourization is closer to the standard roughie than the standard keelback. If you do try and ID a snake on APS please state the reasons for your identification rather than wasting time and electricity with a guess (as if people are going to listen).
