: i need some basic info on the coachwhip... like what it feeds on.. tank size..temperature... humidity... and temperment of the snake...basin info like that.... thnx alot in advance...later...KYLE

Well, of course the cage should be somewhat reflective of the size of the animal. For a 3-5 footer, I would recommend something at least 2x4.
I would keep humidity very low, but they can adapt well to higher.
I would use a smaller water bowl, or a very heavy one, being very large and active they can over turn many water bowls ane make a nasty mess.
Plus they dont drink much standing water
I would provide lots of cover and good basking light (full spectrum as well as a spot lamp are great) they are very alert active animals, you will want to put them somewhere where they will not be stressed out by excessive activity in the room. At least at first, after awhile they can become very curious. I had some that would come to the cage door to see what you were doing if you opened it (not agressively, more feeding response) but that was after several years in a living area of a house. I hope to find some later this week when I go on a photo hunt.

hope this helps.
