Does anyone have any wise words on the difference in temperament between a Russian rat snake and a Dione's rat snake? I have read about the inquisitive, active, calm nature of the Russian, which just sounds perfect, but would the Dione's have the same characteristics in a smaller package?
2012 pair of Diones rat snakes (bred by A C Snakes)
these are gorgeous snakes and it was a difficult decision to put up for sale but having taken on my sons snakes when he lost interest I need to reduce numbers and after a great deal of decision making I decided to keep a pair of his snakes...
I've just started to bring my little Diones out of brumation this last week or so, however I have noticed it is moving less than freely. It seems to struggle to get itself out of a coil and to slither in a straight line, with particular difficulties in the final third of the body towards the...
