    hey, i'm somewhat decent at identifying snakes brought in from people, but this one stumped me. So if anyone knows that type of snake this is, that'd be awesome.




    Thanks.

    Sure looks like a rat to me.
    The only difference between tattooed people and non-tattooed people is....

    ....Tattooed people don't care if you're not tattooed.

    Hmm, The people that brought it in didn't tell you where the exactly got it from?
    Did they catch it from outside? Or Buy it?
    Nice Aspen by the way.

    It's wild caught. They just said southern indiana. And it has my owner stumped because he hasn't seen a pattern like that on a snake from indiana. so he's thinking it was a pet of someones and he just got loose and someone found him.
    It's actually pine.

    I know I said I left the forum, and I have ... but I still read it.
    Since no one has told him yet and I don't know why no one hasn't ...

    It's debated as to whether it's okay or not. Many breeders have kept snakes on it for years and say they've had no problems. I personally stay away from all soft woods (cedar, pine, fir) just to be safe myself.

    It's a good idea to avoid substrates high in phenol. It's strongly suspected, but not conclusively proven, that high phenol levels (such as you'd get with pine, cedar, redwood) are toxic to herps are they are to small mammals such as rodents. One animal may not appear to be affected at all, another might display neural symptoms. Your snake/s might be fine in a pine box or on cedar shavings, but with all the options available, I'm not personally willing to take the risk.
