    Re: Is my set up ok?????

    Thanks chaps and chapette will probably pick up a Rub at work tomorrow, might have to find another shelving unit as there not much room above the vivs, as for the heat what if I get a stat and move the mat inside the viv?

    also can I ask you for you opinion on king snake set up?

    king snake set up? Wooden Viv at least 3' long, Kings, like Corns need plenty of room. House one snake per viv ( they aren't called kingsnakes for nothing) Substrate as for most terrestrial snakes. Hide and water dish, logs/branches, etc..... Ps: On the whole Kings are OK but they can be tempremental, Ok one min, Hissed off the next. Milksnakes are nicer, more colour variety and easier to handle and need the same sort of set up. They also cost about the same some time a little more depending on species.

    Do not put the heat mat inside the viv, Mark...they are not intended to use inside...that can definitely lead to a burned or dead snake. Very pretty king snake!

    Lampropeltis-mexicana-thayeri-Straw-Yellow-Leonis-Phase-510x342.jpgLampropeltis-mexicana-thayeri-Straw-Yellow-Leonis-Phase- It looks like one of these? Thayers Kingsnake or Variable Kingsnake. I thought it was something else, a gloden variety of the San luis potosi Kingsnake. Did the guy in the shop not tell you what it was? What ever it is it is very nice.

    Keep in mind that most Kings are snake eaters.
    Holding the garter and then holding the King may get you bit and vise versa might put the garter on edge.
    Also housing them to close together might put both snakes on edge. Predator, prey thing.

    Just a thought.

    They are not just snakes. They're garter snakes.
