    Thanks, rattlesnakes are the best! Recently bought two more :)

    I've only got a pic of my Az blacks enclosure at the moment, will have to take more later.

    Most are actually with my iPhone lol. Lighting makes the biggest difference.

    Thanks :)


    No I don't. Irrespective of whether they're aggressive or not, if I wanted to handle a snake with my hands I'd buy a python or something.

    Depends what species you keep. My white lips were in a nice planted viv. But I've exchanged them for some rattlesnakes now :)


    Thanks! The two I have are B.rhinoceros by the way. Western Gabs, one strip on face and horns (when older). Eastern Gab, two stripes and no horns - B.gabonica.


    My male Gab is ridiculously laid back, very sweet natured. Just like any other snake really, some are more defensive than others.

    Haha, not yet, no. But they are given away for free here :) one of the most commonly kept venomous snakes.

    I will keep them eventually but I want a particular natural coloration that isn't seen in private collections in Europe. Rather than the run of the mill ones.

    The ones I want are pink. Like this (not my picture), stunning snake.

    Thank you.

    You're kidding right, I have been up close and personal with a few of these guys and I think they are definitely one of the most evil looking snakes out there and the temperament is not much better :(

    No, I know exactly what you mean. It's why I love baby rattlesnakes so much, because they look so angry with their angular face yet they're so tiny and cute!
