Banded Water Snake
In store price: 14.99
Banded Water Snakes originate from the southern part of the U.S. They can be either extremely nervous about handling and bite every time or they can become very tolerant and docile and may accept food out of your hand. They can grow anywhere from 30 inches to 4 and a half feet long. Fresh water in a shallow dish is necessary. They primarily eat small fish every few days as they are very active and aren't known to eat a lot at once. They should be kept in a terrarium at about 77 degrees F during the day and slightly cooler at night. While their terrarium should be mostly a humid environment as Bandeds are often aquatic, there should be a dry side of the tank in order to provide the opportunity for proper regulation and to prevent skin infections.
