My daughter brought home a ribbon snake because the former owner didn't want it anymore and said they were going to release it ( this is third hand - she got it from someone else it had been passed to who didn't want it and also planned to release it in the spring). My daughter didn't want that to happen since it's so calm she feels it was captive born. It had been kept in a very small Tupperware container with no water or hide for at least 3 days so we put it in a 10 gallon with hides and a big waterbowl ( I know I need to get an escape- proof 20 gallon). He ate3 fish and spent most of his first day in the water. He's about 1 1/2 to 2 feet long. He's refused a f/t pinky. Is a diet of fish okay for him? Can we raise guppies for him ourselves to be sure the fish he eats are fed better? Any advice would be appreciated - the info on feeding I found online is a bit contradictory and confusing. Thanks.
