Do these require any particualr care? what price should they be?
I've seen one and hope to get one though probably not until next year.
Is 150e very high for one of these?

Do you mean a banana phase cali king?

Whatever, milk or king, their care is similar to corn snakes - similar temps and viv size, and same food (mice/rats).

150e might be a touch high, but then again you live in ireland so it might be an ok one.

It has a rattle like tail, pale pinkish light line along back I'll get pic
I was told that's what it was, maybe that explains the price though it doesn't look like the ones on google

No not starting out Corn snakes are further down my list

Garters - what i started on (always trying to find more)
Boa- Recent addition
Python- still waiting on
Egg eating snake-stil waiting on
Banana Phrase- seems to be a King snake (Always love the black ones also)
Milk snake- maybe (Simileon)
Emerald boa- No idea where to get one

Ghost Corn snake- cheapest here is 85e
Rough snake- a thought

My list :)

the snake in your link Zirliz is your standard albino californian kingsnake but 150 pounds does seem a tad extreme for the animal..your best bet is try finding a breeder of kings
i keep kingsnakes(best snakes about btw :wink: )and i keep them a little cooler i do cornsnakes and give them plenty of hiding spaces and youll be fine and feeding them is definately not a problem as are greedy feeders but is best not to offer anything too large as kingsnakes jaws aren't as stretchy as most other commonly kept colubrids and ive had no bites from any kingsnake :)

Yeah definite albino....

this is my 5ft male albino



Bananas do have a stronger yellow colour and your cheapest bet is buying from a breeder rather than a shop.

Weelad. The one in your pic i would have said was albino banana aberrant thats what our breeder labels them as.
