    Re: Baiting snakes

    I am hoping that you are enjoying seeing these cuse I sure am having fun! I was a little warmer today and the sun came out so things were hopping (metaphorically speaking) in the “snake pit”. Big green came out and headed for the nearest window sill. She is pretty impressive. Not as ling as I originally thought, about 26 inches (66 cm). Guess I am not too good at estimating lengths (must be a guy thing). This is the first time that I have seen her in the sunlight. She is really striking, kind of a smoky green with almost no markings or strips. She is a real beauty!! Surprise surprise somebody new showed up today a youngeastern milk snake (Lampropeltis triangulum triangulum).

    Terry,

    I think you'd start a riot if you stopped posting your sun room pictures! We're hooked, and they're awesome .

    Cool Re: Baiting snakes

    Things indeed get better and better

    That Lampropeltis is also a very beautiful specimen.

    hey there Terry ... this has to be the coolest thread ever and I do check it DAILY !! I would love to see that green girl after a shed. I can see nice subtle color hues blending perfectly with her overall 'smokey' green. Nice little diverse community you have there.

    best wishes ...

    Sadly the day must come when you'll either have to feed them or turn off the heat lamp. After mating, and normally within about a month of emerging, they would normally disperse from the hibernaculum and set out in search of food. The higher temperatures from the heat lamp raise their metabolic rate and causes them to burn more energy. Personally, I'd offer some small chunks of fish in about a week, but you have some time to plan.

    It also gives you a chance to enter the witness protection program in case you decide to cut us off from pictures of your sun room .


    [International significance: The witness protection program is a program run by federal law enforcement officials in the USA. It is rarely used (as far as I know), but it protects, relocates, and gives a new identity to people who testify against major criminals in order to protect them from revenge].
