Good stuff. The little snake is a blackheaded snake. Good find. I have to say Im not impressed with the condition of the rattlesnake enclosures.

LOL, Well if your gonna keep the snakes you have to take proper care of them including cleaning. In addition at least one of those snakes is in need of some feeding, it is unhealthily thin.

While I agree the cages could have used some cleaning, the snakes were almost all in good health(one was recovering from a respiratory infection). I personally did not notice any under-fed snakes...

i just got back from texas. i saw way too many things. more tarantulas than i care to count and scorpions.. just too much. i also hiked out a bairds rat snake, 2 copperheads, and later that same night out in some flats, found 2 subocularis. west texas has some amazing animals.

Of the 6 sidewinders I have found at different times of the year, they were all at about the same level of feeding as those snakes. So yes, I did look at the sidewinders, but no I dont think they are underfed.
