Very nice, tyrantqueen! :) Strangely, this one lookks as if it was one of the few AAA reptiles that may be a sculpt rather than a cast from an actual specimen. ???

Thank you :) Why do you say that?

Great photos. I suppose the model does look a little bit rough around the edges, a bit less detailed than if it was cast from a real specimen. Maybe they just did a bad job creating the mold :)

Thank you :) Why do you say that?
I wouldn't say the sculpt isn't good, it's just that the scales - especially the scales and shields on the head (e.g. supraoculars and supralabials) - are a bit generalised compared to the scales in a real snake, e.g. in this drawing of Crotalus horridus. The ventral scales seem a bit simplified, too (their lateral margin has been ignored).

That makes sense. Guess I need to brush up on my snake anatomy then 8)
