Hello everyone. I'm hoping I can get a little assistance from some fellow keepers of O. hannah. I acquired what I thought was a male Malaysian King Cobra around 8 feet long in September 2008. After successfully getting it established and feeding regularly I've noticed that its is gradually getting darker almost more like an Indonesian specimen. For those of you who keep both variants have any of you seen this? I'm pretty sure that my husbandry including temps and humidity are up to par but I'd like to get the opinions of those who may have more experience with this species. Thanks in advance for any assistance.
