CB'12 Male



The name "kaouthia" is pronounced "Kee o tee ah".


     The 2012 male has an odd coloration as you can see in the photo above. He is getting lighter with every shed. The 2012 female is pretty much a "normal" looking Monocled Cobra, but since she came from the same clutch as the male with the aberrant coloration, I decided to keep her.

     Below are some progression photos of the CB'12 male's color fading.
