Just brainstorming...Anyone know some species that stay small?
Evidently there are several species that prefer the water, but in particular I'm looking at the Northern Water Snake..
There's always the false water cobra... But it gets big too...
Also, it's mildly venomous... Hmm.
Both could be fed live fish (livebearers) when young, but not really sure what I would feed a 6 foot aquatic snake...
False water cobras can be fed mice I am sure, and mildly venomous usually means like a bee sting :)
Not sure about the rest, thought I would chip in that!
well, it depends on how long you let it chew on you... It's rear-fanged so it has to kind of chew for a while... There are some reports of temporary muscle paralysis if enough venom gets injected. (nothing life threatening though, just in a limited area...)
Have you ever seen tentacled snakes?
Seriously strange snakes if you want a fully aquatic one.
Cool... I might have to look into that one... There's definately an advantage to it's size... Not sure what I'd feed a 6 foot aquatic snake. 35 inches is much more reasonable.
They are truly strange and interesting creatures. I know they can be difficult to source though and don't think they breed in captivity very well.
Anyone know of a good reptile forum?
