PostSubject: Wanna see another cool vid?   Fri Dec 16, 2011 5:43 pm

This is my Acanthophis laevis (PNG Death Adder) feeding. WARNING!! CONTAINS GRAPHIC IMAGES OF A LIVE MOUSE BEING KILLED AND CONSUMED BY THE DEATH ADDERS. Unfortunately my death adder refuses f/t mice and I must feed him live ones, it's the only ones he will eat.

Interesting. It's strange to see a venomous snake bite and hold-on. Too use to pit-vipers. Have you seen your death adder tail fishing (caudal luring)?

The enclosure does look really nice. I'm so used to seeing constrictors it was weird. I have to feed my ball live rats, he refuses anything else, and they have to be of a certain size (not over 200 grams) he will not touch it, he let one cuddle up next him and sleep once...it was pretty funny.

I try to keep most of them natural looking. It's kind of a pain. I'm seriously considering a rack system and giving up the aesthetics for practicality.

Yeah the death adder will bite and hold, which is characteristic of cobras too. makes sense since they are both elapids. I have never seen him actually perform caudal luring but I have seen him perch in a manner where his tail is directly in front of his face. But he's never actually "lured".

Check out this vid of my palm tree viper...another snake that bites and holds on. Interestingly enough, the bite of this tree viper immobilizes the prey almost immediately. Much quicker than the death adder, although the death adder is considered much more dangerous than this viper. I'm questioning that.... check out the vid. CAUTION, ANOTHER LIVE ANIMAL BEING EATEN BY ANOTHER LIVE ANIMAL. Smile I apologize in advanced for the crappy video quality.

Maybe a pain but the visual impact is so nice. I keep racks there easy but don't compare.
