Thanks for the great reply!

Although I collected my sharptail in Santa Cruz county I reside in Santa Barbara county, I was just up there for a veg sampling workshop and decided to do some herping after it let out I'd wanted a sharp-tail for quite some time, so I was pretty ecstatic when I found "him". I actually have no idea on the sex, I assume that are only sexable by probing?

When I initially acquired the snake, I tried worms, small insects, a clutch of duds from a sagebrush lizard and small snails in addition to slugs. The slugs were the only things that disappeared. Since then, I've been maintaining him exclusively on slugs. I've yet to see him eat, but the slugs gradually disappear and he's shed twice and doubled in size since I got him, so he must be eating

Out of curiosity, what kind of set up have you maintained yours in?

Let me know when / where the species description gets published; I'd love to read it!

-Alice
