In Reply to: New to this Forum, but wanting a colubrid...... posted by Whalesong on April 28, 2003 at 16:07:41:
Plenty of folks are breeding yellow rats. They should not be very expensive, either. Any reptile shows near you? That way, you could handle a prospect and see if it seemed at all calm for starters. I would think that once you get past the potential juvenile jumpiness you should stand a good chance of having a very easily handled pet. 15 long will be too small eventually, but there's no reason you couldn't start a hatchling out in it for awhile. Check out BHB or Dwight's obsoleta page, if you want to have one shipped. But if you could find a local breeder and/or a local reptile show, you might be able to pick one up for less than the price of shipping. I saw some recently at the Columbus show for less then $20. Good luck. The North American Ratsnakes are great!!! Duffy
:I am usually not on this forum, since all I have are Ball Pythons, but I love all snakes and am interested in expanding my collection.
:Anyhoo, I met a goregeous Yellow Rat Snake while I was out for a walk in a palm hammock, and it was SO beautiful (big too!). I wondered if anyone breeds yellow rats in captivity, and if so where, how much for one, and what sort of temeprment do they have? And would one be OK in my 15 gal-long aquarium?
:Thanks in advance.
