: : : Does anyone have some experiences to share concerning keeping coachwhips (specifically eastern coachwhips) in captivity? I understand the aggessiveness/shyness aspects, but I'm looking for personal opinions/suggestions for caging and feeding these gems! I want to get some myself, so referrals are welcome for that as well! Thanks.

: : Rick: I recommend Reptariums, they are inexpensive and the soft mesh prevents alot of the nose damage you might otherwise get in a glass tank.If you keep a deep substrate of moss on the bottom, this will allow your snakes to stay hidden and they will aclimate faster.
::Rick: You might have to start with small lizards. If your snake is wild caught, you will have to be patient it may take him a while to aclimate. I wouldn't get too upset if he doesn't eat for his first month or so.
