Re: Storeria dekayi/Dekay's Brown Snake Availability

I have a rough green snake that I got as a CB baby. He is so neat! His name is Lima Bean. He eats all sorts of bugs, mostly crickets. These guys do well in a natural style terrarium. I have him in a bioactive, planted 55 gallon with a screen top. I have lighting for the plants, a heat lamp, and UVB lamp since I have a stowaway anole living in there as well and she needs the UVB (I had inadvertently reused some moss that had been in my anole cage, and a baby hatched out!). He doesn't particularly enjoy handling, although he is pretty docile. I don't really handle him and just have him as a display snake. I mist the tank daily. He honestly needs less maintenance than my other snakes.

Good luck with whatever you decide!

All can eat worms I believe. Ribbons I believe eat fish.
Garters eat fish, frogs, and worms

Re: Storeria dekayi/Dekay's Brown Snake Availability

Lots of good advice already, but I'm going to give you another suggestion...

Don't rule out snakes that eat rodents. I keep tarantulas, and I've kept mantises. I've kept all sorts of lizards and other insect eaters. Feeding one frozen thawed rodent once every week or two is SO much easier than dealing with insects.

I don't mind the tarantulas because they eat so little, but once we sell off all my daughter's leos, I'm not interested in ever having anything again that eats insects daily. This will be the second, and last time that I've made this decision.

Anyway, snakes are easy. If you're interested in Dekay's, get a garter. There are some truly beautiful garters out there.

Maybe, but shipping is questionable this time of year. We have the odd 40F heat up but have already seen below 0F and usually get worse in Jan. I've also never shipped anything alive.

Try the kingsnake classifieds or fauna classifieds. Or maybe go to a expo or reptile show?
