In addition to being spectacularly-colored, the 5 Flying Snakes have the astounding ability to glide and to actually control the direction of their “flight” somewhat. What reptile fan can resist that?! Unfortunately, they are rear-fanged, venomous species and often refuse all food other than lizards or lizard-scented mice.

Bites seem to cause only mild reactions in people, but individual sensitivities and other factors can greatly bite severity. A professional herpetologist and a doctor should be consulted before one acquires a Rear-Fanged Snake of any species.
