Occasionally, one can be convinced to eat waterdogs (really Ambystomatid salamander larvae that bait stores sell). Generally not though. Juveniles will sometimes eat tadpoles, or even fish.

They will eat sirens and amphiumas, if you can catch enough, but they produce slimy, foul smelling waste as a result.

I have actually read that some zoos have kept them by scenting mice with siren slime. Probably not worth it.

They also dehydrate very quickly. They must be kept somewhat moist at all times.

They are one of my all time favorite snakes. Anytime you find one it is cause for celebration! Admire it, and let it go.
