I wish!

Indigo or cribo is on the wish-list.

Seriously the best things you can keep. I have my blacktail female now but will be adding .2 yellowtail and another .1 blacktail this fall. Gonna grow the females a bit first as the males get a bit overzealous occasionally when breeding

I've never heard the name drymarchon. What sort of snakes are in that group?

Drymarchon( means emperor of the forrest) is the genus containing cribos and indigos. Super intelligent, large, high metabolic snakes that eat whatever fits down their throats... absolutely incredible animals to work with

0.1 D. couperi, and 1.1 D. m. erebennus. My favorites of all of my snakes by far.

Re: who all keeps drymarchon?

There are a number of people over on Facebook that keep both Eastern and Texas Indigos as well as cribos. https://www.facebook.com/groups/575798276086719/ I know one that has two very nice looking Eastern Indigo snake clutches he is in the process of hatching now. You will of course need a permit to keep Eastern Indigos, that and probably a small snow shovel for all the crap they produce.

Ah, OK.

That's a good looking snake, by the way, SB.

Re: who all keeps drymarchon?

I just got my "couperi" the other day after waiting for three months for the permit to ship it...now it's in shed and I haven't seen it other than a head coming out to look around.

Maybe once it sheds, and I get it out of the quarantine viv and get it into its final home, it'll be more active.

Re: who all keeps drymarchon?

I still have my D. couperi. I'll have a D. melanurus some day. That will probably be my next non-native snake. But, I'm currently toying with the idea of focusing on the overlooked local AL snake species and trying to keep my reptile collection small.

It appears I let my ongoing Loki thread lapse and get locked, so I'll post my most recent videos of him here.

Oh, you know, just around. I still have my little collection. My job moved me off base to company headquarters a few months ago, so I've been getting settled in with that. Just got back into the jeep world also. Those things, along with all my other hobbies, have kept me distracted a bit.
