Over ten years ago, I had an adult male. He was stereotypical in his mild demeanor and predictable behavior. I enjoyed him for a long time, then eventually traded him for a another snake. At the time, I was a one-snake man. Like many hobbyists, I went down the path of sometimes trading snakes when something new, exotic or otherwise appealing was discovered.

Years passed, and I honed in on the traits most suitable & enjoyed by me: good feeder, curious & relatively active, tractable. North American species are preferred - since they are geographically more practical and less expensive. (I learned this after my Boa & Python phase.)

I interact with mine often, and exercise them outside in safe areas when I can. I also prefer naturalistic setups, with rocks and branches to maximize usable space and to encourage exercise & curiosity.

I settled in on my current "boys":

Gray Ratsnake "Oak"
Pantherophis spiloides

California Kingsnake San Diego Striped - High Spotted "Jack"
Lampropeltis getula californiae

Mexican Black Kingsnake "Fernando"
Lampropeltis getula nigrita

I hope to be posting photos soon!
