Gonyosoma oxycephala are considered "rat sankes" even though they are not Elaphe. They are a bit more racer-like, but in general can be cared for like a rat snake (a bit warmer, though). They can get 5-6' long and are from SE Asia and Indonesia where they can vary greatly in color (grey, tan, yellow, green) between islands. WC imports usually do poorly and have large parasite loads. CB babies are great, though they can be a bit nippy. Ideally, they need a tall, semi-arboreal setup with a hot spot and high humidity (misting 2-3 times a week). They will usually eat rodents of appropriate size. Go to the rat snake forum and you can get a lot more info from people who keep this awesome species (I don't).
