Beauty Snake Questions

Hey Everyone,

I've seen and drooled over your guys's pictures of Blue Beauties and Taiwan Beauties. In all honesty, I tend to go for the blues as I favor snakes with less yellow to them, but they are all gorgeous.

My questions:

Are those the only 2 types of beauty snakes or are those just the most common?

Any notable difference between the two (or others) other than coloration?

What is the temperment like in these guys as hatchlings, juvies, and adults?

I know they have different breeding cycles than the North American rat snakes, any other differences I should be aware of in regards to habitat, etc?

Average clutch size? Size of hatchlings? Average size of adults?

Any known morphs at this time?

Keep those pics coming, I love them. Sorry about all the questions, but I am looking to add a pair of these to my collection and would like to know what I'd be getting into. :D
