Am i right in thinking that you get bright green rat snakes? How different are they to looking after corn snakes? If i'm wrong, what would you say would be the best bright green coloured snake species for someone with about 9 months of experience looking after snakes (nothing DWA)? Are they readily available? Could i get one within my budget of £200? Pics would be great.
Thanks.

The Red-Tailed Green Rat Snake?
Not Seen Any of these in cpativity to be honest. (Others Probably Have).

And Seeing as there not very popurlar, i think they would be quite pricey. Even WC. Correct Me If Im Wrong.

A Other Good Snake Which is a gorgous green is a rough green snakes. They feed on crickets from a young age, and continue on crickets through there life time. These are usually wild caught and live for only a couple of years.

Let me know if u find a red tailed green rat snake! I'd be interested. Stunning :]

About £80. I've had one many years back and a few people here have them also. They're not too many CB about and WC stock don't acclimatise very well. If you can acquire a CB or a WC which has fully acclimatised then you're laughing:)

Assam green trinket snake (Elaphe frenata) is one.

I think the rest are all priced way over budget (other than red-tailed racers and rough greens or smooth greens) as far as green snakes go.
