Red tailed green rat snake at work being a little curious of his future owner. This female seems to be more curious than defensive. The others have all been aggressive and had successfully landed kisses to a coworkers face. #reptilesofig #redtailedgreenratsnake

A #redtailedgreenratsnake tries a chick for the first time. She has only been eating rodents. Once she understood it was breakfast she seemed pretty enthusiastic! #gonyosomaoxycephalum #gonyosoma #lilysextendedminions

Here's another toy snake I repainted to look more like a species found in Singapore. This was used as a prop for a short course I conducted in June, sharing about the snakes of Singapore with NParks staff and other landscape industry professionals.

When I saw Safari Ltd's Rough Green Snake - XL, I knew I had to get it to represent a Red-tailed Racer (Gonyosoma oxycephalum). Fairly straightforward, even if it isn't perfect; the shape of the head isn't an exact match, and I'd painted most of the tail green before I checked my photo references and realised that more of it should be red. That's why part of the tail is a darker shade of red, where I'd tried to paint over (but couldn't totally hide) the green. The actual Red-tailed Racer often has black edges to its scales, and the green isn't uniform - the sides are typically a lighter shade of green compared to the dorsal surface, subtleties in coloration that are difficult to replicate. Still, I think the final result isn't too bad.

The Red-tailed Racer is a large non-venomous snake that grows up to 2.5 metres in length. It's restricted to forest habitats, and is usually found in locations like Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, Central Catchment Nature Reserve, and the surrounding Nature Parks. As its coloration suggests, it spends much of its time in trees and shrubs, where it hunts birds and small mammals.

The photo of the live Red-tailed Racer is by Mishak Shunari.

Fáfnir's already settling into his new enclosure, I'm very surprised how comfortable he already is showing himself around me; Níðhöggr and Jörmungandr hid for about two weeks before they started coming out of their hides with me around

Surprise! Meet Fáfnir, my new Red Tailed Green Rat Snake! Picked him up today from @tombardon and I'm in love!
He's named after the dwarf in Norse Mythology who was transformed into a dragon after hoarding the cursed gold of Andvari and his ring, Andvaranaut. He then breathed poison into the surrounding wilderness to keep away all those who might steal his treasure
Will be posting a tonne more pictures once he's settled! 🐍
