Just when you think you have seen it all,!! you come across this wild hatchling in 2015 NW coastal dry zone Sri Lanka. By far the most impressive Elegans hatchling in my opinion. NATURE AT ITS BEST!!! cmac3 what does your wife think of this one?? NO I DID NOT throw it in my Luggage!!! LoL !! it is still roaming the wilds of Sri Lanka.

If you are housing all these together, you are looking for a disaster. Different species should never be housed together. They can transmit diseases to the other species that my kill it. They have different enclosure requirements and different food needs. And, the twofemails you think are trying to mate with each other, well, that is a sign of aggression.
