    I am in the process of setting up a 55 gallon aquarium environment for the Leucistic Rat Snake I am going to get after it is ready. I would like to put live plants in there to make it more natural. Are there any plants that are specifically better or worse for a Texas Rat Snake? Any they will destroy or whatever? Any help here would be appreciated. I am creating a black rock wall 3D background for the back and sides and using Flukers black aspen bedding over the soil or small pots inserted under the bedding. The idea is to create a mostly black environment with green plants, climbing trees and vines to really show him off.

    This might help get you started. Obviously your snake wont be eating the plants but these should all be safe around it. Up to you to do the reasearch on which ones might suit your setup best.

    Anything soft the snake is going to destroy by crawling around over them.
