    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.

    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 :)

    View attachment 308005
    ^First time she ate at my place

    View attachment 308006
    ^ First time I held her, excuse the dog-butt

    View attachment 308007
    ^ Not too pleased being bothered while I clean her tank


    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.

    PS Could someone please tell me how to attach pics so they show on the page without you having to click on them? Thanks :)

    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.

    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...

    Hi tiger,
    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
