    I have been wanting a snake for years. Been binge watching breeders etc on YouTube . Are there any Australian snake YouTubers ???
    I'm also in Tassie, how hard is a white lipped for a first snake ????

    Quite difficult as they're lizard feeders...

    K brothers is a good aussie youtube channel, but they haven't put any new videos up for a while, Crittacam with Peter Birch is great for antaresia. I have some videos on youtube as well, but mine suck.

    Yes, it's really sad, K Bros is where i first realized that Australia had a great variety of morphs and genes.

    Yes, they predominantly eat lizards (and sometimes frogs). They're fairly sensitive little snakes which can quickly succumb to high temperatures (a brief hot spell just once can kill them, and it doesn't take much to heat stress them) and they can dessicate to death fairly quickly too. They're fabulous little snakes but I don't know if anyone has ever had long term success with them. I'm not even sure if anyone has ever completed two full life cycles in captivity, despite a few people trying.

    The bite is very mild, but anaphylaxis is always a risk. Anaphylaxis can kill you within a few minutes. If you're willing to put the time into being careful they're quite easy to work with without being bitten.
