Copperheads are pretty nice too... I saw one small one down by the pond in my backyard. Gaboons are my favorite though.

Very nice Kevin.

Of all the baby bitis I have had to take care of, they have all been "water bowl stupid" and every cleaning ending in putting their heads in the water.

In time get some river jacks and make coolest hybrid there is.

bitis naiscornis goes by a few names. river jack, butterfly adder, and rhino viper.

the hybrid is gabino's very cool snake.

you can cross gaboons,rhino's, and puff adders.

puff rhino crosses are really rare.

Beautiful snake! Not something I'd want in my house but they are still remarkable to me.

Fantastic looking snake ya got there. I've always loved Gaboons, even before I started really paying attention to exotics. They are one of the coolest looking vipers, and they get giant! I bet that guy will be quite a handful when he gets up to adult size.

Do hot snakes stay pretty docile when raised in captivity like boa's, etc do, or do they stay snarky because they aren't handled?
