Red Tailed Rat Snakes originate from Southeast Asia and are typically 60 to 70 inches long. These snakes can be a little defensive but gentle handling over time may prove to them that you are no threat. Humidity should be kept at 70 to 80 percent in their terrarium with occasional spikes a few times a week at around 100 percent humidity. Keeping a hide with a tightly packed, mossy inside is necessary. You should allow the temperature to be around 74 to 78 degrees Fahrenheit, with a basking spot of 86 to 88 degrees. Their terrarium should be about 36 inches long, 18 inches wide and 30 inches tall, if kept individually.
They eat small rodents appropriate in size to the size of the snake.
