My male did come from Bill Reid, back in 2004. After he settled down and started thinking of mice as food instead of pets, he got around to attacking anything on forceps. He acquired the nickname of Cujo for his sweetness.

His brother, Buddy, is much less agressive. Cujo still likes to pretend he's a T-rex at feeding time, shaking a dead rat so violently that he often bounces off the front and back of his cage, which is 30 inches deep. Buddy just grabs and swallows for the most part, although it was Buddy who accidentally threw a rat across the room out the open door of his cage one time when he was going all Cujo on it. That's not typical of him--he even scoops dead rats off the cage floor sometimes if I leave them in to see if he's interested. Cujo likes his dinner to move before he commits so I wiggle defrosted rats and if he's ready it's an Emeril moment--bam!

Both are gorgeous pink coachwhips. I don't shoot digital although a friend does--maybe I can talk him into a photo shoot of my collection--lots of pretty stuff in here. If you want to see a coachwhip that looks exactly like Cujo or Buddy go to this link: http://southwesternherp.com/snakes/testaceus.html

Not only is the snake in the photo the spitting (hissing?) image of my males, he's showing that good old coachwhip chutzpah we all admire and maybe fear...just a little...? Speaking for myself....
