Thanks for the response, Doug.

I've been living in s. AZ for the last 4.5 yrs, and the winters here are good for Mandarins. We get cool temps from about Thanksgiving to April Fool's Day, which is nice for brumations. I've been fixing up the Back Porch (AZ Room) to be good for my snakes and last summer added a heating/cooling unit. I can keep exact temps year 'round now.

I don't remember the exact years I kept Mandarins in MI, somewhere bt. 1998 and 2008 I'm sure. The Sichuan form was one of my favorites though. I'll see if I can find a pic.

>>Hi Terry,....

>>Glad to hear that you are going to be getting back into these interesting snakes. I wish I could remember more sources, but I know Randy Whittington and Tim Gebhard (Vivid) still work with them. There are a few Mandarins in the KS classifieds right now. There was a couple on "FC" as well.

>>Best of luck getting your new Mandarin acquisitions!...
