You don't get stupid questions mate, only stupid answers.i dont want to sound stupid, studying to be a herpetologist and all, but how dangerous is the snouted cobra? i kno its deadly, but i mean like how much of a chance is there that you'll die?
Newbie question: What's RTB?For a good starter Elapid, Snouties and Monocled cobras.
For a good starter venomous, a Copperhead is not a bad choice.
For a good starter snake, a RTB or a corn snake.
I think that is apsolutly amazing! I guess owning a blue-ring was always a childhood dream of mine, but I never thought you could acctually do so. How was it housed/secured? How did you go about caring for such a creature? And were on earth did you get one, much less two and breed them?I used to have a stonefish and blue ring octopus. The stonefish grew to be around a foot. They are the deadliest fish in the world. And I actually bred the blue ring octopus. I ended up destroying around 100 of their babies after they were a few weeks old, because I couldn't keep them all and didn't want the responsibility of giving them to other people.
oh they will defintly bite either way,if they feel threatend ofcourse,i had a het for albino monacle female venomoid(she was a rescue) and she would bite either way hood up/down she was very defensive,other wise once she was out of the cage she was fine, but only sometimes she would press her mouth against my wrist and then she would bite down hard then let go like nothing happened,plus were i used to work they had "hot" cobras ive worked w/them aswell, diff.sp. and some were very quick to bite with their hoods up or down. very interesting snakes,and pretty smart too:clap:Ok, since we are on the topic of cobars, I've always wanted to ask this question.. I forgot where I heard it from, but is it true that cobras will never bite with their hood down? I'm guessing that it's some kind of myth or just false information, but who knows..
