In Reply to: Tarahumara Mountain Kingsnake....pointers??? posted by apfjavi on April 04, 2003 at 17:21:50:
:I just got a Tarahumara Mountain Kingsnake (lampropeltis pyromelana knoblochi) and I was wondering if anyone had any tips in taking care of them. She's maybe about 8 months old and very pretty. I keep her in a 10 gallon tank and the temp is about 85 degrees. I haven't fed her yet because I'm letting her acclimate to her new digs but I do have some frozen pinkies lying in wait. Any tips or tricks on handling her and caring for her would be much appreciated!
I recently acquired a pair of Knobs. They are still hatchlings. Around 12" long. They are very beautiful. I think they might be the most docile snake. They dont tail rattle or musk. And they are not flighty too. The 2nd day i had them i fed them pinky mice and they bote ate it almost immediately. Unlike what other people say, its the first thing i do to my snakes to check wether they are eating mice. I wouldnt want to wait a week or so only to find out that they wont accept mice. In my line of thought, the earlier i know the better. At least i could start looking for alternative food for them. I suggest you do some research about them. I find that they are easy to care for, not much different from other milks and kings. Hope this helps :)
