Thanks for all the info, from what I have heard they sound interesting to keep.
thankyou for sharing your knowledge and pictures with us.
here is a couple of my personal favorites.
i keep mine in a variety of ways, tubs and terrariums.
i think my next colubrid will be a night tiger all your pics have got the juices flowing hahaha
I have never kept them as pets I had one in care for a few weeks and I just fed a couple of regular feeder fish. Been thinking of getting a colubrid maby a brown tree would be awesome.

@NicG, stunning snakes! Love your setup too. All very inspiring
I can't credit for the set-up in the photos. That belongs to Mason, of which I am quite envious.
As for the snakes, I can only really take credit for breeding the green one; I purchased the other two.
Hi Colubridlover, I figured I'd take you up on your offer and post some pics of my CTS Eden

Are the first and second black snakes you posted the same one? They're stunning! Also I love the "bathtime" pic, do you do that to help with shedding or do they seem to enjoy it? Mine basically ignores her water "bowl" (more like a baking dish) though I caught her drinking from it for the first time yesterday, so much cuteness!!! I'm wondering if an occasional swim in the bathtub would be good for her or if it would just stress her out, what do you think?
Do you catch your CTS staring at you? Mine is ALWAYS staring at me... like a stalker... a very cute stalker.

Bumping up Team Colubrid with some new pics of my GTS Eden
...oh and anyone know what the heck am I doing that's making my pics turn sideways?
Someone asked about localities the other day. Here's a nifty one....
Where does one get hold of a keel back? Id love one but i never see them for sale. Are they common? are many people breeding them?
I have posted these photos in a herping thread but want to post them here as well. I found these on the Gold Coast whilst herping.

They are not a common species but not super rare either. The hardest part in getting them is tracking down a breeder of them. From what I know only a handful of people are breeding them. I got mine 2 years ago when I saw an add come up but I have not seen an add since then for them. There may be some come up for sale soon depending on how the breeder goes getting them feeding, but majority may have already been sold through word of mouth.
these are pretty cute
same type of cute but with attitude
nice little keelback
Fantastic guys. Nearly time to start cooling, who is giving this breeding a crack?
Not me. [MENTION=39985]colubridlover[/MENTION] and any other colubrid peeps, is it normal for a CTS to spend more time in hiding during this season EVEN THOUGH you're keeping the temperatures the same? I'm on the Gold Coast and we've been getting a weird pattern of warm-freezing-rainy-warm and I'm wondering if the change in amount of daytime light is affecting her since I haven't been using the UVB lately.
She shed recently which I thought was the reason, but even since then she's been very secretive and she actually refused a feed yesterday (left it in overnight, no dice) so I'm a bit concerned. Thanks for any help...
What are you basking spot temps?
this time of year most snakes and pythons will be hiding away, I use UVB to create a day night period, a lot of people say not essential with tree snakes but I think UVB is
