Re: Proper pronunciation of Agkistrodon

Thanks guys. The 'gk' combo was what was giving me grief. Couldn't figure out what to pronounce and what to leave out.

Proper pronunciation of Agkistrodon

Just a bit confused on the pronunciation here. Only ever seen it in text and was wondering the correct way to say it out loud. I know it can be a bit tricky to give pronunciation advice with written words but thanks in advance.

Re: Any Dart Frog Keepers on FHF?

What size viv are they in? I have found with leucs having a 2.1 (2 males, 1 female) is the best ratio for breeding... The additional male creates a heierarchy and promotes competition which I think the female likes... Plus, you get extra calling! ;) I have them in an 18" cube Exo. Got a ridiculously...

So, I see and read about these beautiful snakes on here quite regularly and I am unfamiliar with them(part of the reason I love this place, exposure to new and exciting things). I am very intrigued by them. Could I ask what the current latin is for them so I can do a bit more digging?? Thanks guys.
