Bull Snakes

I finally got around to posting some pics, here's a few of the relatively new female bull snake I picked up last March. About a year younger than the male fire bull, no clue on origin, she has done quite a display a few times. Generally she's a bit on the flighty side in her enclosure, but once she's picked up she just relaxes and hangs out. The male is more eager to slip out of his tank and doesn't mind being picked up, but wants to keep moving. Oddly, the female likes to soak in her water bowl, and almost always poops there. I was afraid she was infested with mites, but that wasn't the case. Whatever the reason, she spent several weeks in the water much more than not, but only soaks occasionally now and rather briefly.

First pic was when I brought her home, already had a bit of size, not a small baby like the fire bull.


This one was just taken Sunday, she's growing nicely.


The fire bull has grown quite a bit larger in 18 months, here's a pic from last July. He's in a 75 gallon aquarium.

Re: Bull Snakes

I picked up the fire bull from someone at a reptile show last year who had taken him on trade. No clue who produced him, he was the only one available. I just liked his colors better than the normal bull and gopher snakes I saw at the show that day.
