The most beautiful snakes in my opinion.... and amazing to handle

Who'd have thought you could have the most stunning snakes and not have to endure aggression in getting bitten! These snakes generally have a wonderful temperament, very docile with regular handling - if anything shy at times.

The iridescence is gorgeous - something that really gives them the 'wow' factor - not to mention the rich oranges and reds you can get in different morphs - they definitely impress!!

Something which I found was that they seemed to quite enjoy climbing when given the opportunity to - and for this reason I think it's important to give them the ability to do so - so something with height and length would be fantastic.

They like humidity too, I used to have a reptifogger set up which looked FANTASTIC - especially with lots of moss and stones and other decorations. This they really love!

My snakes were good feeders, I had trouble with one at one time but eventually managed to coax her onto rat weiners through the 'braining' technique... it's a bit gross, but can really help those tricky eaters.

Thoroughly recommend this species - something for the intermediate keeper but I'd even say beginner if THOROUGH research is done before acquiring the animal. :)
