My Colubrids

Post by CTravis »

While many of these are not rare or unusual, colubrids have been the snake to really catch my eye. Particularly that of cornsnake morphs. For the past few years I have began narrowing my collection down (from everything dart frog to leopard tortoises) to mostly just corns and colubrids... with a few acceptions.

All amazing snakes.
However, might I say that your array of Lampropeltis are EXCELLENT. The ruthveni and mexicana 'greeri' are simply stunning, as well as those locality desert kings.
Then again, I am a Lampropeltis kind of guy :)

I am growing quite fond of the mexicana complex kings, they are truly exquisite creatures.
Thank y'all for the kind words.

Thanks for posting!

You have an awesome collection of some great looking snakes!

We have about 10 snakes including 3 corns. Can't imagine how many mice you go through each year! Really nice to see what everybody else keeps.

The beauty snake on the post was nice!
