Re: Artemis - Russian Rat Snake

Chilling








I must finally take her/him to reptile vet to determine the sex... In a few days are my birthday and I'm currently looking for an melanistic Russian, and it would be cool to have a pair and breed them in future There is a few people in my country that have some melanistic so there are some chances! Hope that Artemis is female, males are easier to find (and cheaper, haha!).

Re: Artemis - Russian Rat Snake

Is s/he breeding age now, or are you looking into the future? I'd love to see some melanistic russians on here :P Are they born all black or do they change with age like the normal phase does?

Re: Artemis - Russian Rat Snake

prairiepanda, no s/he is only 2 years, females are ready at 4-5 years, but I want to know now, so I'll be able to find her (or him) a nice partner
And I'm not sure, I know that as an juvie (around 1 year old) they are all black (normal phase in that age is still brown), but I never saw an melanistic hatchling...

Talking Re: Artemis - Russian Rat Snake

Awesome rat snake! Thanks for sharing. The pattern on h/her body reminded me of the chain kingsnake.

Re: Artemis - Russian Rat Snake

Do they hiss really loud?? I remember going to a snake breeders house and hearing a Russian sounding like a radiator over blowing steam....

Re: Artemis - Russian Rat Snake

KingMilk, huh, Artemis never hissed... so I don't really know, she is rather "fly and hide" when disturbed.

Re: Artemis - Russian Rat Snake

Kink Milk, maybe it was Korean Rat (elaphe anomala, formerly it was subspecies of Russians)? They are more shy and nippy than Russian Rat's, so hissing will be really likely to happen

Update:
Artemis shed two days ago, we contacted one of the breeders in my town, and we're going to him and try probing Hope that s/he turns out female!

You're probably right. I didn't ask the breeder (in depth) questions about it. That sucker was loud as hell, I just wanted to by my snakes n leave... Lol

Re: Artemis - Russian Rat Snake

That's great news! And she's looking gorgeous! I know she's not breeding age yet, but do you have any idea when you'll be getting a male for her? I'd love to see this forum flooded with more Russian rats!
