My work has been talking about getting a N. Water Snake. I was told that they have mites and in captivity the mites take over there body and kill the snake. This sounds unlikly to me. Has anyone had this problem? How would I go about correcting this problen if the snake did get mites?

Thank you for your help. Im just trying to get as much info as possible from experanced keepers so that I can bring the best info to our disscussion of the exibit.

Tom
