Platinum Beauty

These guys always give me that “wow” factor when I take them out. Their metallic coloration reminds me of platinum.

The trans pecos is definitely a snake that has been on my bucket list for a while. But I want the wild look rather than any morph. It’s all in those gorgeous eyes <3

Their big ol’ eyes make my heart melt everytime!

I love the coloration on these guys. If you don’t mind me asking, what’s it like having one? There’s not a lot out there about how handleable they are or how to take care of them. Any tips on care or even where to find one? I am gonna look for an axanthic or silver like yours.

In my experience, they are by far one of the most calm tempered Ratsnakes I’ve ever interacted with. They’re even more docile than a Cornsnake, and less sporadic in their movements as juveniles.

Their care is very simple – equivalent to that of your other North American Ratsnakes. The only exception is that I keep their humidity a tad lower in comparison (usually around 45%) because they seem more prone to developing respiratory infections.

Very awesome snakes and by far a top ten favorite for me.
