Hi I am just looking for some advice please. For the past few weeks I have being weighing up the options for a first snake. I have noticed that people are encouraged to keep a corn snake as their first snake. Has anybody got any experience of an Everglades Rat Snake? Do you know anything about their nature and feeding habits or difficulties? Not many people keep rat snakes. Any ideas why? Is it the nature of rat snakes that they are 'advanced' in some way to keep or thier availability? Just like the look of the yellow or everglades varieties, and am under the impression they are less 'nippy' than the Texas rats. Any advice welcome, regarding if it's a snake I would 'work towards' when experienced so to speak. Etc Thanks from Fiona.
