    Aquatic species?

    Been doing some research about more aquatic species. For now ruling out anacondas. So looking at 3 species.

    1. Elephant Trunk snake. Main issue is cant be handled much and are almost purely aquatic only leaving the water to bask for short period of time.

    2. Puff-face water snake. Semi aquatic but eats fish as primary diet. Can be bitty and most are imports.

    3. Cerberus (dog face). Not much info around on them but another mildly venomous species and most likely be ruled out purely for that reason.


    Please share your experience and thoughts.

    Water python, liasis fuscus. Semi-aquatic like anacondas, good eaters, mid-sized as adults range from 6-8 feet, CBB babies are available, reportedly very curious and tolerant of handling.

    Tentacle snakes are aquatic -- I remember seeing a display of them at the St. Louis Zoo a couple years ago.

    If you want aquatic, what about something like a tiretrack eel? I had one for years that was about 2' and as fat as my wrist. I could hand feed him.

    You really are a thrill seeker.

    Not a thrill seeker at all. Just learning and asking questions.
