Japanese Rat Snakes

So Monday I got a new pair of Japanese rat snakes (Elaphe Climacophora). The guy got them from Kim and Mark Bell. How he described them and the pics he sent me, I was expecting hatchling size with hatchling colors. I was pleasantly surprised when he pulled them out of the bag. I saw yearling size snakes with their colors just starting to come through. I'll have to get some belly shots for you guys, their bellys are blue. Needless to say, I am happy with them and they seem to have great curious attitudes so far. I haven't handled much so time will tell with that.

Anywho, here they are. Not the best pics but I didn't want to mess with them too much. I wouldn't mind some help with names too.

Awesome. Something about the color/pattern reminds me of my Spot.

Re: Japanese Rat Snakes

Thanks all, Alessia I'll definitely get those belly pics in time, just have to let them settle in a little more.

They do kinda have a granite look to them don't they? Didn't even notice that, maybe now I won't have to get that granite carpet haha.

Godzilla might work out, but I'll have to see what else comes up before I decide.

Re: Japanese Rat Snakes

BEAUTIFUL! I LOVE Climacophora. I had an old boy a while back for a few years after his "retirement". Best guesses put him at around 22 years old when he passed.

Re: Japanese Rat Snakes

Holy Crap! 22 years old is good for a snake. My guys are only a year so it looks like I have a lot more time with these guys. I really like the striped ones too but I haven't seen any here in the states, all the ones I've seen have been in pictures from over seas.

I hadn't heard of striped ones! I got my guy back in 2007 as a LTC from the guy who had originally imported him "way back in the early 90's". I just thought he looked cool, and I got him for a great price because he was a retired breeder. Loved that old boy. I'll see if I can find some pictures of him.

hehe yea man, i would even go as far as saying exquisite taste lol. Lovely wee things they are like, good luck with them. I had a tiny baby in my hand but decided against it, kinda kicking myself now as its away now.

Though i do have something to take the pain away coming soon. Met a guy recently, actually the boy i got the racer off, who can get his hands on pretty much anything and he has some CB baby sulawesi mangroves coming next month. To say im excited is a bit of an understatement, been after some boiga sp for a long time...
