    Don’t we all need just one more?


    That is a stunning snake...what type of rat snake? I’m not as familiar with them as there isn’t much of a selection in this area other than corn morphs and the occasional grey rat snake.

    I used to raise Taiwan Beauty rat snakes...they ARE beautiful & they can get quite large (9' in some cases), coupled with being fairly active snakes. When
    raised from hatchlings, they are nice to handle (without bites). They feed eagerly on f/t rodents. There's a recent thread here about a Blue Beauty rat snake...
    these are very close cousins. I cannot imagine trying to handle a wild one! Fortunately these are easily captive-bred, & hatchlings are quite large. They are
    semi-arboreal, so a huge cage with branches (or trees ) would be really awesome. Maybe you could convert your bathroom...you don't really need that do ya?
    LOL

    I saw the post on the Blue Beauty, and that is one pretty snake. And I see that true to form on this site, in no way are you trying to dissuade me from increasing my collection. LOL

    In all seriousness, Iím looking to add another ball python when the weather breaks early next year. Weather is starting to get unpredictable now, so I would be hesitant to have her shipped. Sunday and Monday were both near 65F for the highs, today 40ís, tomorrow possible snow flurries.
