I have a theory that there are few (if any) Amur ratsnakes being imported. I've been asking around to see if anyone had fresh imported stock. So far no one has. Schrencki have a very rapid metabolism (most of the time). Defecation after two days isn't unusual. As far as stench, it's hard to say which snake is most offensive. I think it varies by what they eat and when you find it.
Thanks. That's a photo of the male. He's much more yellow than his mate. Schrencki are fun. They're diurnal, calm and act like they're interested in watching us!
>>I purchased him at a local shop that buys from breeders & imports. The owner wasn't in, so I don't know where it came from. I assume they do import these guys? He's pleny fat(1200 grams)and I was told is eating well. One thing though, he deficated as soon as I got him home today and it looked normal but boy did it stink! And I thought my cribos were bad (or maybe I'm just used to them!) Are they known for this?
>>btw, your second pic is stunning!
