In Reply to: Grayband exhibit at the Philly Zoo posted by Tom Anderson on September 20, 2002 at 09:21:59:

:I went to the zoo Philly yesterday and they had a great grayband exhibit that looked like a little peice of West Texas in a box. They kepted four or five graybands in the same exhibit ranging in size from a yearling, about eighteen inches, to a full grown female, about forty inches. I ask one of the keepers about housing graybands together and they said they have never had any problems keeping graybands together, and had been doing so for years. The keeper said that they do not eat snakes in the wild and consume mostly lizards and some small mammels in the wild.

:I am thinking about setting up a similar naturalistic display for some of my graybands. Any thoughts?

Hatchling alterna will sometimes cannibalize their siblings - I had it happen this year...
