Looks like they are available again, I thought I would add my two cents for anyone trying them. It seems that they and many asain snakes become immune compromised from the stress of capture and acclimation and are suseptible to common fungal pathogens. From my research to properly aclimnate these snakes you need a an antifungal environment. I would use black water extract and keep the water acidic 6.0-6.5. Also established aquariums with alot of algae growth seem do well. It I was going to try them again I would get U.V. filter just to make sure. Unfortunately Christmas has me wiped-out or I would try them myself, hopefully they will available for awhile. If you have experience with these snake, successful or unsuccessful please post!
