    Well my boyfriend rescued another snake today. This time a Tangerine Honduran Milksnake. Excuse the shape of his tank, I got the pictures before we started cleaning the tank.

    We welcome any and all suggestions since we have more experience with Ball Pythons & Boas. Speedy is as the name suggests very fast and he's aggressive. (more info about Speedy)

    Huuuunnnh!!! David like!!! That orange color is so captivating! I wonder if I could convince the wife that we need to move to Idaho. I can't believe that there are so many snakes to be rescued out there-I haven't gotten a call in almost 3 months- and that was a caiman that I have since adopted out.

    David:

    Try Craigslist. We get a lot of snakes just responding to ads placed on Craigslist.

    Merlin:

    What kind of substrate is best? We use Eco-Earth exclusivly for our ball pythons. since Speedy doesn't require the humidity that BP's need, what is best to use?

    does he need multiple hides?

    Temps? The care sheets we've read say 76 - 80 Does he not need a light? UTH?

    That's all I can think of at the moment. More questions later I am sure.

    I would use aspen. And I just give the one hide. as they can burrow around in the aspen.
    76-80 will do as an ambient temperature but give a basking spot of about 90 degrees
    My smaller colubrids are on undertank heaters. I user human type heating pads. But mine are the kind without the auto shut off feature.
    They do not need special lighting, just a day night cycle. The ambient light in the room will do.
