I ordered determination tests for 3 of my Monocold Cobras ( Naja kaothia ) that I plan on putting in a breeding project in the next year or so. It is inexpensive and less dangerous for everybody. I don't want to take my snakes to a vet for probing as the vets in my area have very little to no experience with venomous snakes, and to be quite frank.. the snakes are too small to even probe.
