If you’re feeling down, know that this cute little Dragon Snake is here to help cheer you up! We added some more of these awesome guys to the family, including some that are the smallest/youngest we’ve had the chance to keep and study. As with the rest of our group, these little fellas are wild caught since viable CB offspring has yet to be produced – but this season we are putting a majority of our focus on breeding Dragon Snakes. I’ve been busy studying, observing, charting, documenting, preparing, etc. and this season will be 100% dedicated to breeding our Dragon Snakes. Believe it or not, hatchlings are even smaller than this! Hatchling heads are about the size of a pinhead, it’s crazy.
I would estimate this little guy to be about 6 months old. I’ve only ever kept ones that were at least around a year old or older because, well, I can’t imagine these little guys are easy to find! I have a couple others that are even smaller – probably only 3-4 months old, maybe even younger. It makes me wonder if perhaps the exporter came across a den of them (similar to how some Rattlesnake species gather in dens). I plan to study Dragon Snakes in the actual field within the next couple years. There is just so much to learn, so many questions to find the answers to! I just love this species. Nature is the most beautiful artist.
