So cute. And the plus is no feeding thawed out rodents! I looked them up, as well as my childhood favorite, Madame Garter Snake.
I'm considering it and it's all your fault!;)
I've heard they will take other stuff, but my python gets frozen/ thawed, so I'm going to keep these guys on the same thing. just much smaller lol. he also sells frozen feeders

Yup, pinkies, then fuzzies, thenadult mice, probably small rat at full grown. my python gets small rats atm
Eeewwww. :hungry: Actually I think when I get mine, I'll stick to nightcrawlers with a touch of supers and a goldie or two. Gotta think how to rig up a goldie tank.

SO CUTE! But I cannot wait to get my Everglades Ratsnake out of the pinkie stage.. there just cannot be all that much nutrition on an animal that drank milk for a day or two before dying LOL

Do you mean goldfish? They are HORRIBLE feeder animals.

Keeping a snake on anything else with ZERO mammal food is asking for a malnourished snake.

From what I was reading about the little brown snake and the garters is that they eat worms, minnows, locusts. Correct if they're wrong, magicmed.

Little brown snake... Do you mean Dekay's brown snake, Storeria dekayi? Those feed almost exclusively on nightcrawlers, slugs, and snails.

Yes, that's the little beast! Storeria dekayi.
I can handle the snails and nightcrawlers. Just need to think how I'd get the terrarium to be best for the little cutie.

Oh I've been researching those guys like crazy for the past few months. I want one, but they aren't native here and it seems no one is selling. I did find someone that'd be willing to get one for me though, so all I gotta do now is wait. :)

A terrarium... let's see, I'm gonna do a topsoil substrate with two hides, one moist, one dry and leaf litter on top of the topsoil. Maybe some moss near the water dish and maybe another dish next to the water dish where I'll place food. Either that or take the snake out and feed it in a separate container. I'll be adding springtails as well, to keep it a little cleaner.



Oh and there's this for garters...:
http://www.gartersnake.info/care/feeding.php

"Goldfish should be avoided at all costs; it’s essentially a junk fish with poor nutritive value. And other species of fish contain an enzyme called thiaminase, which destroys vitamin B1 (thiamin) and gives your snake a potentially fatal vitamin deficiency"

I fed my california kingsnake frozen mice. It's gross to thaw the mice out, that's just me. I'd rather feed insects. Yes, I'm a wimp.

There is a huge difference between snakes that feed exclusively on those prey items and forcing a mammal-eating snake to only eat those items (;

I'd actually rather do frozen/thawed mice, but my parents are very strict: no mice! So S. dekayi for me!
