Most reptile enthusiasts have seen photos or footage of the amazing Egg-Eating Snake in action, and many (especially those adverse to rodent-eaters!) have longed to add this remarkable creature to their collections. Success varies….some individuals accept the easily-obtainable quail and zebra finch eggs, but others seem determined to hold-out for the eggs they would encounter in the wild. Folks with access to eggs from a variety of small domestic bird species are the best potential owners for these unique but sometimes frustrating little snakes.
