There was someone on here selling a pair for £90 so they usually sell for around £50 i reckon... Taiwans are really good looking snakes, grow a decent length but don't have the bulk of biods!

Hurrah!! Taiwan Beauty....lovely :lol: I used to get mine for £25 each....but that was 4 years ago so...I reckon around £50 ish for a hatchling.

Dont get a Royal...Tai's have a much better character, are more active, get to a nice, large, handleable size...and they eat anything...Mine were my dustbins. If one of my other snakes didnt eat Id throw it in with my adult female and itd be gone before you had the time to blink!

Iv got three Royals now, and 2 Blue Beauties....and I really cannot wait for my Beauties to get large...which isnt going to take very long! I find that I prefer my Royals just to know I have them, rather than with the Beauties where you can handle them alot more, and are more of a pet...If that makes sense...

Beauty Snakes all the way! Everyone should have one!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I know someone with a clutch hatched last month and they're not that small as babies. Perhaps you saw a Chinese Beauty Snake which looks the same but is only about half the size of a Taiwanese. If you need a contact name for a baby let me know.

I kept mine in 2ft vivs til they were about 6 months old, and they had plenty of room. Shelves and things help with increasing surface area.

I had 4 and they were all kept in small vivs when they were young, and to be honest...I wouldnt have had it any other way, because they were fantastic feeders, always shed brilliantly, had excellent temperaments, and I found it easier to regulate the temps and humidity they needed.

When my female was adult though she had a 4 x 2 x 2 and used every single bit of space she had available. The younger ones got upgraded to 3 ft vivs before I had to sell them.

If its for a couple of months a 2ft viv will be fine, but they do grow extremely fast and will need upgrading quickly as it is 3 months old already. :lol: :lol:
