Nice animals

Mitch always has great specimens. Mine was from Marty Peidl and 03 baby.

Keep in mind that Gabbys and especially Rhinos are deep rainforest snakes not accustom to direct sunlight. The Rhinos stress very very easily and then die. Put the Rhino in it's cage, in subdued lighting and try not to disturb it. Mine only comes out of his cage for a weight every 6 months or if he needs a soak. Put lots of silk plants and a natural substrate in it's cage. He should do fine. And for heavens and YOUR sake never put your hands in the cage with them in it. They will get you!! These was a recent fatality from a Rhino bite, even with A/V. The "experienced" but now dead keeper reached in for the water bowl.

Feel free to contact me for any other questions.

See my video of them and others in action. Bitis are so damn fast you have no chance of escape. Just think if the hook (in the video) was your arm or hand. They always surprise you as she did this time with me. She had never done that in the 3 years since her birth.

Here's some fangs she shed a few weeks ago. The scale is MM, 25.4mm/inch
