Those are very handsome animals and I hope they have contributed to the captive Drymarchon gene pool. To have locality data on an import is rare indeed, no doubt an interesting story for both of them.

How have they adjusted to captive conditons? They certainly look well fed and "glowing" with vigor. Some imports are pretty nervous, how is their temperment compared to captive breds you have raised?

With the huge range of Drymarchon and the great difficulty in locating, accessing, importing, there are no doubt great and exciting discoveries to be made with them, and we are occassionally treated with photos of wild ones the likes of which I have never seen in captives. Thanks for posting these rarely seen photos. Vic
