    I think these beauties certainly need their own dedicated thread for everyone to centrally drool over :p
    So show us those beauties!

    The best, and one of the most viewed threads on this site, had hundreds of elapid shots. I just did a quick search and found nothing. This will probably be my last post on here then I guess.

    Hey Jack,

    That's only because unfortunately when the forum was moved to a new server some content was lost in the move, it wasn't intentionally removed.

    You'll notice quite a few threads with the same name as old popular threads that were lost as we all try and bring them back

    Sorry too hear you're considering leaving

    If you view the threads "issues requiring resolution" and "what's the matter with everyone?" You find more info :) I would link you too them but I'm on my phone

    Thanks everyone. Elapids have always held a special interest for me. I will upload some more photos when i get a chance. I really need to buy a good camera instead of using my phone :)

    Nice elapids, by far some of the most beautiful and iconic snakes of Aus. Luke, is that a bungaroides? If it is, please post more pics, they are one of my favourite aussie elapids!

    Luke, don't complain about your photos; they are excellent. Love that first photo of the coastal taipan.
    And Vampstorso, love the photos of your RBB.

    I am in love with RBB's they have such a presence and exude confidence, some of the most beautiful and biggest specimens i have seen were among the tin piles out the back of the old Agg college in Richmond NSW, they were silky shiny black with the most striking red bellies, i would love to own 1 but i'm afraid my reflexes these days would preclude that, very beautiful elapids guys keep them rolling in, [MENTION=1718]jack[/MENTION] sorry to here you are considering leaving because of a technical difficulty would be a shame to see you go but you gotta do what you gotta do. :) ........................Ron

    Loving these pics so far! [MENTION=41911]imported-varanus[/MENTION] is that a bitorquatus? [MENTION=4778]cement[/MENTION] lovely snakes, is this one a stephensii or a bungaroides? Are Cacophis and furina good to handle or more of a display animal?
