Jeremy, I live in Tucson, AZ, and I have caught more night snakes than any other snake. I have probably handled a couple hundred of them over the past couple of years and have never once had one even attempt to bite! They are incredibly docile creatures, they will curl up between your fingers. Their "defensive" nature is to wrap its head up in their coils. As for keeping them, they like it very dry, and warm. Keep humiduty at a minimum and keep a heat lamp or such over one side of the enclosure. Loose substrate that they can burrow into of hide rock is needed, since (as their name implies) they are nocturnal. Feeding can be a toughy. I have always been able to feed them our native banded geckos (which are quite plentiful out here), but have had little luck getting them to eat anything else. They will eat other snakes, however, even larger ones than they are, so be careful! If you have any other questions about them, feel free to contact me at dalytek12@msn.com and ask. I don't check this forum nearly as often as I would like to. :O)
