A brief intro, and some photos

Hello, all. I'm new here, so I'll briefly introduce myself. I'm Brian, and I live in southeast Michigan. I'm 32, and a life long reptile lover. I'v kept a variety of herps, starting about 5 -6 years of age. At 10, I was bitten on the shoe by a small Eastern Massasauga Rattlesnake (not envenomated), and since then, I've been completely fascinated by vipers. A little over 3 years ago, I began keeping them, myself. Among the vipers, the arboreals are what I'm truely passionate about. Well, enough about me, here are some photos from my collection. Enjoy.








A couple baby Eyelash vipers that I produced last fall

Welcome to the forum. You've got some amazing snakes. Could you give the names of all of them? A lot of us aren't familiar with all the venomous snakes. Thanks!

Re: A brief intro, and some photos

These are wonderful! It's awesome to see some more hot keepers. I have not seen a hot I didn't like, though I don't own any. You've produced some beauties!

Im one of those. There is no way I will ever own a hot, much less a slough of them, but they are some of the prettiest snakes around and this applies to your collection as well. Thank you and welcome to this forum.
