Hey all --

I have the opportunity to possibly purchase a young mud snake. This snake has been in captivity for at least 8 months, and has been eating tadpoles and frogs. I haven't decided whether to buy it, but I'm interested.

I'm well aware of their dietary preferences and semi-aquatic nature. I've also read some threads here on kingsnake.com in which keepers were successful in converting young snakes to pinkies. However, I can't find any mention of TEMPERATURE requirements.

Is anyone here currently keeping mud snakes? Any advice? I do think these guys are awfully handsome, so info would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
