Just got him late January after a 20-year search for the Right snake for me to keep, based on behavior & traits.

I prefer alert, active, curious, good feeding.

My hatchling was more fun his first 3 days than my Everglades has been in 3 months (generally also tru of other Rat Snakes I've kept).

He loves to be out, baskss on the front, highest branches, and is CONSTANTLY active, even late at night. He handles like a dream.

He prefers:
live food over cooked (I boiled his FT pinkies too long once)
fish tank water over clean, distilled water

He is so alert & intelligent (almost scary) that it is more like raising a small child than a snake. He's actually that engaging.

So far, he's a Wonder. Will post photos later when available.
