She is gorgeous. I have never seen one in person but they do look pretty awesome. Very nice pick up.

That's a great new addition, false water cobra's are nice, does it hood up much? I've heard a lot of them are absolute nut jobs, what's this one like?

thanks for the compliments folks...

this 1 seems pretty relaxed tbh, was a long journey home last nite and she let me pick her up and sat on the hook for a bit so i could get a good look at her no bother, didnt hood at all then went into the viv nice as ya like...

think i was stressin more than the snake!lol! tho i think it might be a different story if theres food on the go!

Cracking addition mate.
I've seen Wayne's in City Reptile and they are lovely but as Marty says can be nut jobs lol.

Looks a decent size how old is she ?

cheers steve, yea was eyeing waynes up for a while myself, then a wee unexpected oppertunity came up to get this 1 and i jumped at the chance.

yea i have herd a few scare stories about these myself but fingers crossed this 1 stays as calm as she seems!

not sure on age but shes around the 6ft mark, sat and made an extension hook las nite to about 4ft before i went near it like!lol! but as i said she was so placid it was unreal.
