    The gift of life is the best gift of them all.. ('coz love is the greatest? @_@)

    Picked up this egg during my vacation in one of the tropical paradises in South-east Asia. Only God knows what's inside. I found it inside a hollow tree stump.

    3 weeks later... Boom! Thank goodness it's not a cobra! Lol

    A few hours after force hatching/egg C-section. The egg was starting to mold and catch a lot of unwanted fungal growths

    At 2 days old, this one's a hearty-eater :D

    Released the fella back into the wild. Sad to see it go but that's how it should be :D

    Besides, I already have an adult version of him/her. Right, Fido? :D

    The last photo is of my captive snake of the same species. The baby was released back into the wild just a few days ago :D

    But to answer your question, he's about 6 feet in length

    Nope. It means they're nocturnal and their eyes are meant to see at night :D

    Many things indicate venom, some being bright colors or and I think yellow and black together is poisonous I'm sure there's more signs to represent a venomous snake. How're there's things like cotton mouths that you can only really tell from the insides of their mouth, there's actually a snake that looks exactly like a cotton mouth but is as harmless as garter snake. Beautiful snake btw, so the eggs just hatch at room temp? That's really cool. I'd love to live somewhere like that with so much wildlife right next to you haha in Florida the only thing to catch is tree frogs, anoles, house geckos, black racers and turtles lol

    There are venomous snakes with really small heads like coralsnakes and mole vipers. No way to really tell except by identifying it. Most venomous snakes are obvious anyways i.e. rattling sounds, hooding up, red & black coloration (not always the case but good enough).
    Oh okay haha. It was about 14 inches long

    My mom is a diplomat and my dad works for the airline company I'm riding. So technically it's a free trip all the way, tax-free lol. I'm allowed to bring anything in as long as it is not mandated by international law lol
