this photo honestly made me go "wow". That is a really unusual colour scheme!
Great, aren't they? The colours are superb.
I was just doing a bit of a google search to see what I could find out about these (which wasn't much as it turned out). They have several other common names, including red-headed ratsnake and mandarin ratsnake both of which are fair enough, but a very odd name used on several sites is "100 flower ratsnake" or "hundred flower ratsnake".....anyone know the reason behind this?
Just came across this great shot of some very young O. moellendorfi from a German website. Love the eyes.
the colour of 100 flowers is my guess!
Maybe the rosettes look like flowers to them?
Separate names with a comma.
