: Hi everyone... I've been trying to get my mom to let me get a king snake for a long time but it's been a year and she's still saying, "Megan, they eat mice! I don't think I can deal with mice live or frozen in this house!" So, we went to the pet store just to look around and there were some Green Vine Snakes. My mom thought that since they ate crickets that I should get this kind rather than a king snake, which the pet store owner would have to order. The thing is I know absolutely NOTHING about vine snakes other than that they eat crickets. Can someone fill me in? Or has anyone had experiences (good or bad) with vine snakes?

: Thank you for atleast looking!

If it is a true vine snake you plan on purchasing. the are actually venomous. they are a rear fanged colubrid from southern texas and mexico. but it may also be the rough green snake from the souther east coast. These make good pets for the beginer and they only feed on insects. but make sure that it's cage is high enough, they spend most of their time above ground. e-mail me anymore questions you may have
