Hi, I've never had a snake or any other reptile before but I've always liked them and was considering replacing my fish (which are getting to be a bit of a pain - won't stop breeding) with a snake. My current fish tank/prospective snake enclosure is (just copied and pasted from product specs. I...

Tonight I decided to go for a walk and kinda half-heartedly look for some herps... on one road, a friend and walked partially down, then turned around and started to come back. We noticed a snake on its back, with a very, very pale belly; only reason we saw it was because it was nearly white...

Hi all this is my first posting!! We live on the Illawarra escarpment and while not a snake lover or keeper we like to be able to identify the snakes we come across. One small snake is making this dificult. They? appear under the dog kennel grey in colour cream under belly? Never longer than 30...
I headed out to the Brigalow Belt in Queensland to meet some friends of ours and see what cool critters we could find. I've been out to this particular spot a few times, but have never managed to see a De Vis' banded snake (Denisonia devisi), despite this area being well-known for this snake...
I am interested in getting a common tree snake but have heard that in captivity they are buggers to feed and some will only accept frogs and skinks...
Is this true? or after some effort will they except mice?

Hi everyone, a mate of mine is buying an adult slaty-grey snake. it is about 5 feet long, not sure of it's age but it is apparently very placid and it feeds well on chicks and mice. So here's his questions that I couldn't answer:
1. is $500 a fair price for this snake? (i said it sounds good...
I'm curious to know of anyone that has any leads on a black and grey snake (no, not black and white...). I'm not fussed on species (assuming it'd be some kind of carpet anyway); just curious to know if anyone out there has anything like it.
hey everyone, could all you murry darling owners please post some pics?

I have seen the pictures around this forum, but havent seen too many, and i was hoping some people could post some, so i can see...
The Grey snake is a mostly harmless Elapid that is native to my area & is on the endangered list . So I'm very keen to do my bit & in a worst case scenario at least have them safe in a private collection . Can anyone help me out in aquiring a couple of these little fellas before it's too...

Just a quickie, i'm getting a snake real soon, first timer, open to suggestions on breeds, but at the moment really tossing up between a carpet (coastal), or a diamond.
I am aware of the size they grow to, i'm aware of the temperaments (even though...
I am currently looking for information on the clinical effects of bites by a range of snake species including:
Demansia papuensis and Demansia vestigiata (black whipsnakes)
Rhinoplocephalus nigrostriatus (black-striped snake) or any other Rhinoplocephalus spp.
Did anyone happen to catch tonights 'Snake Busters' program?
I think for once I have to agree with Ray Hoser in his assesment of Bruce Georges snake handling ability. The way they measured that scrub python was absolutely disgraceful. For those that didn't see it two adult men at either end of...
Following on from Pinkies little survey....what are the most overrated and most underrated snakes:
