I'm sorry the snake is so thin. I recently acquired it from aomeone who had neglected it for some time. I have it feeding on f/t chicks voraciously though, so it should fatten up with consistent feeding.
Anyway, could anyone tell me if this is dendrophila or melanota? I'd love to eventually breed it once it is healthy, but I don't want to mix the subspecies. This is the best picture I could get without disturbing the snake, but if you need more pics(or better ones), let me know. Thanks.
