The beautifully-patterned European Whip Snakes have much in common with North America’s Coachwhip Snakes and Racers, and are just as speedy, active and high-strung. Threatened by habitat loss, European Whip Snakes are in need of attention from serious keepers, but their care requirements are not well-known. Large, undisturbed, planted enclosures and, for some, a supply of lizards, are essential.
