Hello, Can someone please help me identify this rat snake? which breed is this? Its around 7ft. Someone said its oriental rat snake but another person said its a "Coachwhip" snake. Now I am confused. Whats his/her gender? I am assuming its a male. Do I need to provide a heat source or will they do fine on room temp as told by previous owner? Also what should I feed it? I don't have access to mouse/rats as there are no reptiles shop here in my country. Previous owner told me that he will eat chicks or small birds like sparrow after 20 days gap. But someone on another forum recommended me a "quail" Picture Gallery : Postimage.org / gallery - IMAG1605, IMAG1606, IMAG1608, IMAG1609, IMAG1610, IMAG1635, IMAG1637 Your help will be greatly appreciated. This is my first snake Note : Don't worry about the gravel as am going to shift him to newspaper bedding.
