How Tiny is a Dragon Snake?

Thought I would share a good size comparison of our juvenile dragon snakes (Xenodermus javanicus) next to a dime. So much cute in that tiny little face! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts::snake:

They are so small, somehow I imagined they’d be bigger (maybe because of their name being dragon)

No matter the size these are definitely one of the coolest snakes around!!

Goodness! Reminds me of the first Dekays I ever saw in person. Smaller than you’d think.

Extremely cute! I just love those velvety heads and jet black marble eyes.

So much adorability (that’s a word, right? Lol) in such a small package! They really do have the cutest little faces.

Is it still true that they do not survive very long in captivity?
