My brother and I have kept snakes since the late 60's. Besides USA species, we have kept Asian and African
Cobras and other Elapids, OZ/PNG Elapids, and Vipers from Africa, Asia and S. America. We have always liked
Asian Cobras the most, so a few years ago, we decided to
specialize in them. In early 2013, we decided to get back into
African Cobras. We do continue to keep one very big and
old Eastern x Western Diamondback Rattlesnake we
received in a collection we bought in 2001, as well as a
CB'99 W. A. Gaboon Viper we got as a baby, and my wife
is getting into Eyelash Vipers.
We now have 8 of the 11 recognized species of Asian Naja in our
collection, and we have bred all 8 species we currently keep.
Two species are not available legally, and the other,
Naja philippinensis, will be acquired at some point in
the future. We are also now keeping 7 species of
African Cobras. We are still
looking for specimens of the species we do not keep, and mates
for the single specimens we do keep. Check out our "Specimens Wanted" page at the link above to
see what we're looking for.
