ZebulonHoover - If you are serious about educating and breeding local species in captivity for conservation then I'm very much willing to help you.

DianaJ.Limjoco - I hope it's not yet late but this particular sp. is from Bicol province. They are not so common in the pet trade (at least now) since they are very hard to keep in captivity and mostly feed on frogs and house geckos and very few will take mice or pinkies.
They are also fast striker and they carry hemotoxin venom and I don't think we have antivenin for that :-)
