I went to a reptile show today panning on coming home empty handed but that was not the case. I manage to get a pair of Leucistic Monocled Cobras that I finally paid off and have been planning on for a while. The unexpected part was also bring home a pair of Red Eyed Leucistics as well. The cost was great but they are some of the most stunning reptiles I have seen. Here's a few pics I snapped while unpacking them will get some better another day did not want to stress these guys to much.





The pictures are terrible but had alot to do getting them all set up and comfortable. LOL

I even got to visit with Al Cortz for a while. Always a treat to chat with Al. I know he kinda raises and eyebrow at me but always respectful and helpful.

Love the calender by the way.
Thanks
Eric G.

Thanks!

I have been after a pair of leucistics for sometime and must be Christmas cause I got those along with the red eyed leucistics. There are only 7 red eyed leucistics in the world and I now own 2 of them. Diamond reptile breeders have the other 5.

I'll have to let them settle in but at this point seem alot calmer than the albino monocled cobras. I was exspecting them to act the same. Time will tell.

very nice. Also, may i ask you, are you a profesional herpetologist or herpoculturist?
I'm a Herpetoculturist if you must have a label for me. :lol2: This is just my hobby. I do it cause I love reptiles and venomous snakes play a strong role in my interests. No real reason for me to keep them other than the one listed above.

Thanks Terry! These guys are cream of the crop in my opinion. I have wanted these guys forever it seems. I still have to go look just to make sure their really there lol I just wanted the blue eyes never thought I would have the red eyes also. It will be a long time before I can add anything else to my collection. I think beaded lizards are in the future.

There still fairly rare here in the USA the regular leucistics with the blue eyes are some what hard to find for sale. The red eyed leucistics are pretty impossible since these are 2 out of 7 in the world.

I have no idea what's available in the UK so you might see the blue eyed leucistics more often.
