    Talking Jack the Russian Rat Snake/elaphe schrenckii (progression)

    Officially the tiniest snake I have ever owned or held. I finally got my russian rat snake! Born 7/17/17 from Zerkle, and his name is Jack! I wanted one for quite awhile, so I jumped on the chance. He's a wild type elaphe schrenckii. I've been trying to call them Manchurian Black Water Snake, as I think this name makes more sense.

    Not many pics yet as I want him to settle. And he is SO small, soft, and fragile! Amazing. I feel like if I breathe too hard, he would blow away. LOL






    And his current setup, just a 15qt sterilite. I'm afraid of putting him in anything larger, as you can see he is SO TINY in this tiny tub! I even lose track of where he is in here. I believe he would be able to live in this size for at least another 6 months. He's currently eating large mouse pinks.

    He moves in this twitchy way and I already saw him come out to drink water and hang out near the bowl for awhile. That tiny water bowl is like a pond to him.



    I'm super excited to watch him grow up, though it will take a couple years!

    I know a dude that breeds colubrids, he owns about 90 snakes. I will see if he can help me obtain one of these gems.
