In my opinion this is the one of the top 3 of the most beautiful snakes in the world. Their natural iridescent colors are what give this snake it's name and it is truly worthy of it. They are absolutely stunning and photos can never do this snake justice, they always look so much better in the flesh. As far as keeping this species, they are fairly easy and straight forward but some can be very snappy so they might not be the best option for a first time keeper but for experienced keepers this is a highly recommended species to keep. I have always loved this species and I'm sure that will not be changing any time soon. Not many snakes rival them in beauty.
