I have changed my mind. This afternoon we were in the wetlands of Natal and we came across a 4 foot long Gaboon Viper. The head was the size of an adult man's fist and she was as thick as my bicep! The guide pointed out that lazy and slow as she seemed she was fully aware of us and had 4 to 5 cm fangs and a lightining fast strick. Now that's a dream snake!

I do like how creative some people's list of snakes are. Also, the gaboon viper that Greg mentioned, very beautiful snake and very deadly.
While I like the venomous snakes I'm just to much of a chicken to ever consider keeping them. If I could find a adult green tree python that was completely yellow. As majority of you know they all start out yellow or reddish, but as they age they go through there color change and turn green. While there is a few of them out there that retain a lot of there yellow through out the years there isn't very many.

I like GTPs too, but I like ETBs just as much, if not more.

But if I was ever going to get a strictly arboreal show cage, it would definitely be filled with a couple of these:


Blue Chondros!!!!

Im with franky on this one. The ETB are awesome snakes but there usually aggressive. Not to forget about there teeth. Your almost better off to call them fangs because of the length and how they fold them back.

Yeah, but they're soooo beautiful. And I'd love to have a display only cage full of them <3

Would you believe there is a shop in SA that specialises in venomous snakes and they cant keep with the demand for black mambas and diamond back rattlers. A King Cobra has awaiting list of over a year and sells for around a cool R50 000.00!

How much is that in US dollars I wonder? :S

Sadly, I've seen my first ever hot vendor here in Louisiana .... and I didn't like what I saw one bit -.-' ..... The snakes were HELLA cheap .... Like ... about as affordable as a leopard gecko kind of cheap!! ((I realize that most of them were natives to Louisiana anyways and could be found in any back yard, but the temptation is a LOT less when you're dealing with one in your back yard and don't know how to handle it, than if you have one for $40 in a nice neat little package that allows you safe handling sitting right in front of you)) And not only that, they weren't very secure. I was very unhappy with that vendor. And worse off still, my boyfriend's four year old kept tugging on their netting, trying to rip it down, and they didn't even say a word to us or to him about it. We corrected him for it, of course, like good parents should, but still .... I wonder what would have happened if he'd have slipped out of our sights for a second, ran to that table and ripped down that netting without us knowing. Would the vendor have even TRIED to stop him?
