Hi there

My husband has the oppertunity to buy a 2 year old 5 1/2 ft male bull snake (white). He said hes friendly and eats well.
Im not sure, Ive read there moody and need alot of time + I think there ugly, but Matts pretty interested.
What do you guys think of Bull snakes?

Pretty much any snake can be moody, and supposedly aggressive species can be docile - depends on the individual.

I believe they can grow to about 8ft so you'd need space for a decent sized viv - probably 5x2x2 if it reaches that size.

I've kept Bulls, I wouldn't have said they are ugly snakes, as for them being moody, they are all huff and puff I've never been bitten off one, as for feeding they eat like pigs and also get quite big some reaching 8foot, Looking after them is like looking after your average kings, corns etc.
Thats my verdict and Ive owned a few Bulls.
Hope this helps.
Good Luck :D :D :D

I have a pair of bulls the male is 6-7 ft and the female 7-8ft both are very easily handled and have a rough/tough look and feel about them.My pair have bred for the last few years producing 17 young this year.The hatchlings are very hissy and are not afraid to bite repeatedly although they lose this if well handled.I think a 2 yr snake that is of good nature would be an ideal buy for someone who wants somthing a bit bigger than your average corn/king
.I have just fed mine in the last 5 mins or i would pull them out and post some pics! but PM me and i will tomorrow if you want!

Bullsnakes are fantastic snakes, really it shouldnt matter whether you think theyre ugly if youre partner likes thrm! Aged 2 it should have a decent disposition, youngsters are the worst. Lots of bulls hiss like steam trains but you are given PLENTY of warning before you get bitten!
Nice and easy to keep these guys, hardy and a good size. 8ft? Hmm maybe at a stretch, theyre not really all that huge and most can be kept in a 4ft x 2ft viv, though 5ft woud certainly be appreciated if you have the space.
