Terry-- Wow that is a hard question. Every old wolrd ratsnake in my collection is a favorite at one time or another
it is amazing when you stop and look at each one, and see things that you just love about them. If we look at bigger
snakes then the Caves are right there at the top. If we look at smaller ones thats tough because there are so many
cool one hohenackeri, conspiculattas, mandarina, coxi, diones bimacs etc. I just can't just list one. Maybe thats
why I just have to have them all.

Thanks Rick

:Those are excellent choices. It amazes me that when there is a "what is your favorite rat snake" post, there is quite a list of different species and subspecies. There doesn't seem to be a big focus on a particular rat snake. There is something there for each of us. I think mandarina had a slight edge in Old World last time, but it was just an edge. I can't give in to Terry Cox yet. LOL. Good luck Saker.

::Old world: E. p. Coxi

::New world: Elaphe (bogertophis) Rosalie
