Hi
Yes they can be a handfull or more. Very interesting and also intelligent snakes, that can give you plenty of fun observing. They are easy to keep as captive bred. WC I newer tried and would not recommend due to parasites, infections and poor condition. They also have an attitude.......and a serious bite too. Captive bred animals are easy and calm down fast. Only problem is the tendensy to like eating other snakes including their own species.
Keep them in a large terrarium under conditions like cornsnakes. One funny think we have learned here in Denmark is that they actually like freshwater fish ( schrencki too) some animals éven prefer them to rodents.
A friend of mine is keeping them, and I have the eggs in my incubator. I will post, when they hatch.
All together BEAUTIFULL animals with plenty of activity. Unfortunately not so common within the hobby.

Best wishes
Søe
