I have 3 left now, the others were sold or traded. My largest baby is doing AWSOME. He readily feeds on domestic crickets, he'd eat every day if I let him and hes growing at an astonishng rate, its pretty amazing. The other two are a little stubborn, I'm still feeding them on small house spiders and house flies, but they're plugging along and take a hatchling cricket or two once in a while, they should switch over soon. With the rate the biggest one is growing, he should be adult size by next summer, although I dont know about the other two, they might need another year before they're full grown. They are also making great pets, they're really hardy and they really tolerate being handled, despite the fact that they can barely wrap around my thumb twice. I'm thinking of getting some other water snakes soon, I never knew how much fun it would be to keep them, all other snakes I've kept before or keep now are just plain boring, pretty, but boring. I'm gonna keep my eye out in the classifieds for some CH babys or CB ones, they're also popular at our reptile shows.
