    *Antaresia ;)

    I know they're not as variable as the morelias, but I still think they can get super pretty...plus I love their small size and sweet temperaments. I also like the shape of their heads. :p

    +1 for aspidites

    My woma doesn't do any of that, but I still love her. My male BHP does the burrowing thing, and the girl sticks her head up in the air as if to catch the sun's rays.

    come on aspidites for the win :)

    @ rob_n_son , my female woma doesnt do it , and my male didnt do it when i first got him either it was just something that started out of no where , so hopefully it will start to put the show on for you soon try teasing them with the rat a little , like keep it just out of reach , that gets my boys head buzzing and tail wiggling

    I love all snakes but Antaresia just do it for me if I had the funds my walls would be snake enclosures so I could be surrounded by them LOL If snakes are anaddiciton then I am hoplessly hooked.

    When I first got her, she was a very nervous feeder. She would not take it from my tongs (still won't), and if I put it down she would not take it until she thought no one was watching. She has gotten a bit better, but still tries to drag it off into her hide to eat it.

    Mine have calmed their food response down with age, both of mine gently take their rat and half the time don't even bother wrapping around it... Unless I do a bit of tugging after they bite to get them really enthusiastic.

    Keep those votes coming!
