Gets your heart racing a little being around something that can kill you, and on top of that you are purposefully trying to piss it off so it will hood up for you! Did I mention they are fast too? All those things aside it was still fun! :twisted:

That's awesome man! We have a reptile walk through around were I live and it's pretty cool. It let's you get closer than most zoos. Keep the pics coming.

Nope she is not, she is packing all the heat that god gave her.
Her eyes are kinda redish black (more black than red), but shes a Lucy so that is somewhat expected.

Wow, that is one beautiful cobra. I don't think I've ever seen an albino cobra before. There's nothing in the pics for scale, but she looks like just a baby, yes? How long?

Does "lucy" mean baby snake? Sorry, I don't do spines so I'm ignorant in here. :D
Leucism is a result of skin pigment reduction = white snake. Albinism is a lack of melanin. Two different things.

Google pictures for better clarification if you wish.

Hope that helps!

Great pics, Ryan!

Neat, Ryan! Any chance it's being displayed publicly down there in Oregonland?

My girlfriend would really like to get into some of the venomous snakes, but I've decided against it.

I get bit by enough snakes I dont need any deadly ones trying. =P

OK.. I have been wanting to ask everyone who keeps hots.. Do y'all feed live or F/T?

I understand why you feed a constrictor a F/T.. Its safer..

Is the same risk there for a venomous snake?

I would assume there is & kind of wonder if I am wasting my time asking this question.. But at the same time.. Being they are venomous.. Doesnt that lower the risk of them taking a bite from a feeder?

The risk is still there for injury, transfer of disease or parasites, etc.

Frozen/thawed is the only way to go.
