    I can remember looking into these a while back but I couldn't find any of the snake so I forgot everything, but there are some in the local reptile shop so I'll lookinto them further and report back to this thread.

    Azza

    EDIT: so far I've found: males up to about 3 feet. females to about 4
    can survive in a 10gallon thrives in a 20l, feeding is normal. babies may be somewhat reluctant to eat.
    temps are around 80-90F and dry humidity. but when shedding higher humidity

    Hope that helps

    ive got 6 animals now but the breeding is somewhat troublesome as the different intergrades(although apear similar) do not hybridise, and finding outwhat you have nis a nuisance to say the least.
