There are a couple people working with them (they are on Facebook), and I have an adult pair of Lystrophis pulcher that should breed next year. They both started out as tricolors, but the male has lost his red (he's now black with white bands) and the female has lost her white (she's now black with red bands).

My experiences have been good so far, as my pair has very good feed responses (both eat fuzzies/hoppers). They stay buried 90% of the time, and both use their moist hide regularly (just a plastic tub with moist sphagnum moss). I have mine set up in a rack and they appear to be thriving.

From numerous conversations with people who have owned them they reportedly don't like to be too hot, and their eggs require cooler incubation temperatures than most colubrids. Mine have a hot spot of 90 degrees, and the cool end is around 75 degrees. They have large tubs which provide plenty of options for thermoregulation. The female tends to stay towards the warm end while the male seems to prefer the cooler end.

I really like these critters, and look forward to the challenge of breeding, eggs and babies.
