It is an important factor if you do not want to have a huge aquarium in the living room. The temperature required for this species is between 75 and 85 degrees.

The issue of feeding is not a problem. The ones living in the wild usually eat small rodents but also birds eggs reptiles amphibians and invertebrates. They also may eat other snakes like I mentioned before. In captivity the most common prey are mice. For young snakes - pinky ones for adults - adequate to their size once a week. Cue the common adage is your refrigerator running? only this time don t fall for the joke.
But if this is your first pet snake you might want to consider purchasing a king snake or a milk snake. There are numerous sub-species that fall into these two closely-related snakes; this means you will have a variety of different colors and patterns to choose from. In addition these snakes are generally non-aggressive and easy to care for. Getting to Know the King Snake and the Milk Snake King snakes and milk snakes are interesting creatures for a number of different reasons. For starters the colors and patterns found on some of these snakes can look very similar coral snakes which are very venomous snakes with yellow and red bands of color. In fact the only real difference in appearance between a coral snake and a king or milk snake with the same coloring is the act that king and milk snakes have a line of black touching the red bands.
You can find some good information regarding how to identify reproductions along with some pictures of known reproductions from various online sources. If you are interested in learning more about these bottles there are two books currently available that provide some excellent information about how they were made and used along with some basic pricing information. The book are titled "Udderly Beautiful" and "Udderly Splendid" by John Tutton. Both give some rarity and pricing information but because of the large number of bottles produced they don t cover even a small fraction of the bottles produced. Both can be found for sale on either eBay Amazon or in some antique shops. Other sources of information are The National Association Of Milk Bottle Collectors and the individual web sites many of their members maintain.
