Another difference: I was never bitten by girondica. Austriaca sometimes or often bites when captured.

P.s. Thanks Bero! ;)

Oh yes, it does. In most cases. Even if handled quite gently. And in a really strange way - it actually announces the bite! It quite slowly and "friendly" adjoins its head to your finger, sidewise, as if
fondling you - then you know a bite is to follow... and in most cases it does. No other snake, to my knowledge, does anything like that.

But after a few bites, it relaxes totally (and so does the "culprit"/"torturer" as well):

Yes, it's the same one, now quite tame...

Yes, it looks like a tiny girondica

BTW: I was bitten by a girondica just once. Was in october, with cold, under a huge Stone. It was angry and try to bite me many times, and finally it got it!
