The Bull Snake is a large Colubrid that is strong and robust. They are very fast and can be quite defensive and bite if they are not accustomed to being handled frequently. They are amazing snakes to keep and are voracious feeders. Adults do well on a diet of medium sized rats every 7 to 10 days. They are relatively easy to breed and breed well when wintered for 60 - 90 days each winter. I would recommend this snake for non venomous snake keepers that are looking to keep a more challenging non venomous snake. These snakes are lots of fun and games and you will definitely enjoy keeping them. They do however grow to about 180cm long so a cage size of a minimum of 180cm x 60cm x 60cm will do you well, making it easier to clean because it won't get dirty so often and at the same time provide the snake with ample space.
