    I'm in Lexington. I would love help, I just don't know what to do to get him more comfortable with me. If you're ever around, it would mean the world.

    As far as putting my hands in the tank, talking to him etc., he doesn't seem to grow much more easy at all, still very timid.

    This is all done on the snakes schedule. They will accept you when they accept you.

    Good to know. So it should happen with time? Should I leave my hand in there for an extended period of time? Maybe I'll post a video sometime to show his tank.

    I've fed mine small crickets from the pet store. I also have a ring-neck living with it and they r best buds. I don't know if they r male or female.

    What Joey said. Please separate the ringneck out.

    Also, neither dekay brown snakes or ringnecks eat crickets. They cannot digest them. The crickets are either burrowing or escaping the tank.

    Smaller does not mean that he can't try to eat the dekayi or stress him out. These two animals are not meant to be housed together.

    Let me rephrase: They cannot properly digest crickets. If you don't believe me, start a new thread and ask for opinions on it. That diet will eventually kill them.

    Re: Brown Snake/DeKay Help with Feeding

    Ringnecks are generalists and will eat pretty much anything, i'm not sure on their ability to digest crickets as it probably hasn't been studied since they've never been popular among people or the pet trade. So I wouldn't say they can't, but I will say a varied diet is better and an only cricket diet most likely isn't healthy and will lead to problems. They are often found in groups in the wild despite the fact they have been known to prey on smaller snakes.
