Re: Does anybody keep/breed rear fanged species?

None of the Boiga sp are particularly good starter snakes.. if anything then likely a B. cyanea of ~1+ year would be best. They need both vertical and horizontal space, not just vertical, that's just the general interpretation of most people who read "arboreal".

I'm also looking into Boiga and a few other rear fanged species to keep, but at this moment the Boiga's take the last spot on the list because of the care required and what they return..

- it is not a species that you can "wait out" when they refuse to feed, especially youngsters
- they may need specialist diets, all rodent isn't a good choice (too much fat for them), which may be hard to come by or expensive
- they stress really easy
- they generally have an ******* disposition
