That is just magnificent. What a beautiful animal! (The photos are quality too!)

I don't feel there is any need to justify why we keep snakes.

That's a great beast. Takes me back years when I caught a male. It was quite a find in those days and I kept it quite some time. Do you intend to keep it and breed from it?
