Re: Artemis - Russian Rat Snake

prairiepanda, I was planning on getting black hatchling this summer, but I don't know if I'll have enough space. She'll be ready to breeding at around 4 years old so I still have the time to arrange everything (it's lucky that males can be a little younger).

And one picture of the escaping master - my boyfriend corn snake:

Re: Artemis - Russian Rat Snake

Corns are so cute! He's looking great considering how long he had been missing!

Re: Artemis - Russian Rat Snake

Ha, I found a pics from a day ONE! That's Artemis the day she arrive to us. Little worm






Unfortunately I don't have any new pics, she recently has a phase "Eat, go to the hide and stay there for 2 weeks until next feeding". She starts to looking a little too chunky so I'll propably change the feeding schedule a little.

On a better note, she starts to calming more... and to prove it she bite my boyfriend while the last feeding, haha! But it was our fault, because I always just put the mices for her on the ground, and my bf tried to hand feed her... and she just went totally crazy and grab his hand.

Re: Artemis - Russian Rat Snake

Aw, she was so tiny!! Baby rat snakes are too cute. Hopefully Artemis will come out sometime so we can see fresh pics! Are her yellows still getting brighter, or has she finished her colour change?

Re: Artemis - Russian Rat Snake

You know, maybe no lighter, but gaining more contrast, although it slows down. I think that she soon will be in her final "dress". Growth rate slows too, maybe that's why she seems to be more "fat". On the other hand I was having talk about it with some breeders, and it's normal, she's still rather small compared to others 2yo females.

And yeah, I hope that she ends her "hermit" phase soon

Orion - Russian Rat Snake, melanistic

Hi all,
here is thread for my second Russian Rat Snake. The first one, normal female Artemis is here ->Artemis - Russian Rat Snake

Hour ago I received that cute little black creature. 1,5 year old melanistic Russian Rat, I hope that he'll be male. It was really good deal, they are rather rare, and I paid only 50$. I'm sooo happy!

He's a sweet, curious one, no stress after the journey. He's also bigger than my 2 yo female, and that's cool too. Here are some pics (not the best but I wanted to give him a rest in his new enclosure.







As you see there are still some white markings, hatchlings are black with white bands, and as they grow the white is fading.



And I hope that it will not fade... under his head he has a really cute white tie... It's blurred in this pic, I'll try to take better pic after a few days.



Have a good day/night!

Re: Orion - Russian Rat Snake, melanistic

prairiepanda, at this moment it's just sterile glass tank with water bowl, two hides, and paper towels We'll soon build viv rack (you know, shelves with vivariums for each of our snakes).

El-Ziggy, Mikoh4792 thank you!

Re: Orion - Russian Rat Snake, melanistic

Sweet all around, beautiful snake for a great price and a good size. What size/age do they reach maturity? My 2 pairs of 18 month old DRMB's are easy to sex by sight now, the males are more slender, and they still have years to grow before they mature.

Re: Orion - Russian Rat Snake, melanistic

Obsidian_Dragon, if the US would be closer I'll be hapy to find and send you one!

toddnbecka, around 2-3 years old, but there are no visible differences between females and males unfortunately. They vary in size as adult like corns, some are just 4,6ft, when others are 6ft... It all depends on genes and parents lenghts. I'll gues that Orion's parents were bigger than Artemis, as he is really bigger and bulkier than she (and 6 months younger).

The size difference right now could also have to do with their feeding regimen. If they feed larger prey, or feed more often than you, then their babies will grow faster. The two could end up being the same size as adults; the rate of growth isn't always an indicator of how large the snake will become.
