The only thing I know is that someone has been selling them as Dice snakes! (See the Grass snake thread on this page)!

I keep a young pair, I really couldn't recommend them enough as a species! Mine have proved very simple to keep. I keep them with a very slight heat spot of around 82F, which they really seem to enjoy. I've found this to increase their activity and also feeding response. From what I've read, they tend to be fairly fussy feeders, although (fingers crossed!) I've not found these with mine at all, and only really found a slight preference towards smaller food items. I first kept them in a large faunarium, and they're relatively soon going to be moving into a 4x2x2. On important thing that mine really appreciate is a humid hide, where they spend a lot of time.

And now for some pics:

Beautiful snakes. Are they an active species?

They are not particularly fast but they do climb around a lot and are active during the day so they are usually in plain view. They are quite curious and gentle snakes, really nice pets and great in a tall terrarium with some nice big branches.

I spent my childhood finding them in France and northern Spain, and recently acquired a pair of CB animals. Here they are in their naturalistic terrarium (which still requires a bit of planting).















They are extraordinarily hardy snakes, easy to keep and very interesting to watch.

Regards,
Francis

Very nice snakes,Thrasops
Are they common in the hobby?

My adults ended up in a 5"h x 3"w x 2"d viv and spent a lot of time climbing.
I'll have some young for sale shortly if you're interested?
