Re: Artemis - Russian Rat Snake

Beautiful. I've found a breeder of Russian rats not too from me who has an excellent reputation so may well add on to the collection.

They're rare in the US. It took me over a year to find breeding stock. My guys have more growing up to do before they're ready to breed yet though.

Watch Fauna Classifieds and Kingsnake for ads, and if you see one you like pounce on it because it will be gone in a heartbeat. I got really tired of hearing, "Already sold."

Re: Artemis - Russian Rat Snake

Yesterday Zerkle posted their for sae list and there were Russians, so I really recommend checking them! But they were 150-200$ each from what I remember.

Re: Artemis - Russian Rat Snake

I looked at Zerkls facebook page. Wow they have some nice looking snakes. I just saw the Chinese king rat. Yellow and black. Oh wow. I think I want one of them even more.

Wow that expensive? They're not popular in the UK and can be had for $25-30! I'm going to see if the breeder is at the reptile show on Sunday to see if she has any currently as I'm very tempted.

Re: Artemis - Russian Rat Snake

Works for me them being cheaper though . Particularly wild types-makes building the collection more achievable.

Re: Artemis - Russian Rat Snake

Exactly This year I know that few other breeders around the world were having het. melanistic too, but the prices went sooo high as to more than 500$ for a pair... Personally I sold one pair for 200Euro, single male 80Euro, and the three that are still looking for home are now 90Eu each if someone would want all three of them... But I'm sure that if someone would be decided then I would sell them cheaper.

And I still got some opinions that I'm selling them below their worth and I'm "destroying the market"

Re: Artemis - Russian Rat Snake

If you open the door of Russian Ratsnake enclosure and she's not immediately checking what you are doing - it can only be death.

Our beautiful 9yo Callisto died in the night, I guess she must have been a lot older (or really overbreed in previous owners care).

Re: Artemis - Russian Rat Snake

This year we won't breed any of our snakes, as they are either too young or in case of Artemis she has a one year break for regeneration. But, here are some new pics of Arty and a few taken last summer of our two holdbacks. I hope it'll be warmer soon as I would love to take a good, new pictures in natural light.
