Default Blackadder goes forth...

I thought some of you guys might like to see this....
We all drool over the foreign exotics, so how about a British born and bred exotic...
Blackadder
I'm waiting for the weather to break and planning a trip out to get some pics of the *forest* adders.... Don't worry I have a very good zoom lens... LOL

lol, beautiful snake though, I would love to see an Adder in the wild (something I am working on, I live in the wrong place though!), a melanistic one would be an awesome find... I would name it Edmund!

Good Luck!!

Graeme's right, Black adders are fairly common on some sites, and indeed nicer ones.

Fancy seeing you here . Had a melanistic berus on last Sundays herps cons task here in the Purbecks. Agreed, nothing unusual, certainly not rare - but stunning nevertheless - i'll never forget spotting my first one in the New Forest (and no, that wasn't at Martin Noble's outdoor reptilary i might add ). Have you got out lately and seen any of the 'locals' mate?, Al

Problem with that one in the article is its not a very nice one.

May so called black adders have white labials etc.

In 30 years I've only seen a handful of true Black Adders i.e nothing but deepest black all over!

Now they are something special!
