    Another one of my top favorite snake, Dryophiops philippina. Not as brightly colored as most conventionally kept snake species are and maybe some of you have only heard of this snake until today but i assure you they are a delight to own. A similar looking cousin, Dryophiops rubescens, exists in Thailand.

    It moves in a semi-sidewinding movement on the ground and sways its head side to side to mimic a twig blown by the wind.

    Always alert and quick to escape

    Even as matured adults, they are just as thin as a pencil but grows to almost a meter long. Way thinner than Asian Vinesnakes (Ahaetulla) :D

    Happy Thursday!

    Actually it's the Philippine Whipsnake or Keel-bellied whipsnake. I do have yellow vinesnakes. I breed them personally and ship them to eastern europe. I used to have the orange and gray vinesnakes but they were more delicate than their green counterparts as they need a specific altitude to thrive making them suitable in places like Baguio and Bukidnon where i had 2 pairs shipped a few years ago :D
