Thanks again Merlin for ID-ing it for me. Does anyone have any experience with these snakes? I have read about 15 websites and am getting varying information. Some say they grow to about 3' and others say 5'. They're either very aggressive always or somewhat aggressive but will tame with handling. All of them say the bite is very painful (I wear gloves). I need help with food, I know they eat slow moving fish, frogs and can possibley eat worms and pinkies. This guy wouldn't touch a mouse but happily ate 2 gold fish. I gave him 3 aquatic frogs but he's left them alone. I know gold fish aren't good but what are slow moving fish? I'm hoping he'll take to dew worms, my garter loved them. I can get tons of little tree frogs around here but until spring. Thanks for any help.
