    I'm looking into possibly getting a Honduran Milk Snake, and I was wondering where I could find a reputable care sheet, and if anyone has any info on them. :)

    Just follow the basic care for corns and kings.;)

    That's easy enough! The guy I'm looking at getting is a beautiful hypo who's about 2 years old. The breeder says he hasn't been handled a lot, but he doesn't bite. What kind of challenge am I looking at in order to get this dude hand-tame? This is the guy I'm looking at. After talking to Loren of Sundial Reptile extensively last night, he told me that this male is much larger now and is feeding on f/t small mice. As much as I trust Loren as a breeder, how does this male look? Thanks!

    Looks healthy to me. In my experience, the young tend to be a little nippy, and will even out a bit with age. If he's fairly docile now, I wouldn't count on him turning into an aggressive monster. He'll probably be quite alright with a minimum of effort.

    Thanks for your help! I've actually decided to go with a corn snake, as I think that it will fit my personality better. As gorgeous as this guy is, I just don't think it's in the cards.

    Awe.. Corns are great snakes I've kept a great many of them over the years. Though have always love the look of the hondros but never got around to getting one till today. I'm a weak man, what can I say.

    I totally understand your "weakness" I am the same way! I would probably have hundreds of snakes if not for my pillar of strength(my wife)- she keeps a roof over our head and groceries on the table. ;)
