 Which is the sumatran and borneo?

I have a sumatran blood, and I have studied this snake for a year before I bought her. The one thing that I still to this day can not figure out is telling the difference between the sumatran and borneo. Send pics, or describe with great detail.

You mean sumatran reds? Or sumatran short tails (blacks) apart from borneo short tails? Aside from appearances between them all, the one big way they can all be told apart is the head scalations that each species has.

Thanx, for replying I have a sumatran red. If you could, can you give me more info about the head scalations. Thanx again.

Curtus, Breitensei, and Brongersmai are alll pretty easy to tell apart from eachother visually. Telling Sumatran reds from Malaysian reds takes a good eye though.
