    Awesome. Just think of how many undiscovered species, of anything let alone herps, are still yet to be seen...and that's speaking solely of species on earth. I'm pretty comfortable with mortality, but it kills me (no pun intended) not knowing what I'll miss when I'm gone.

    I was just reading about this. They are calling it Matilda!
    Just when they think that they know everything about everything, something comes along and slaps them up the side of the head!

    It is a gorgeous snake. I think it is very sad that they have to hide its location. I understand wanting pretty herp, but and endangered one? People annoy me at times. :mad:

    It's sad that we sometimes don't discover a species until it is almost too late.... At least it says they have a small breeding colony established, so there is hope for the preservation of the species.

    Yeah, I read this night before last. My wife tends to find all these reptile related stories and she sends them to me. I read about this one and thought That is just the way it is- being named after his seven year old daughter. At least the snake is beautiful and there is hope the breeding group works out.
