Cerastes cerastes care

Postby Scorpion » Mon Apr 16, 2012 2:56 am

Hi,

I have kept many non-venemous species for quite some time, so I have general snake care knowledge. I would appreciate those who have experience keeping Cerastes cerastes, if you would share your knowledge of best conditions for keeping this species. Temps, Humidity, Feeding, Watering etc

thanks
:)

There are many discussions on their care, your best bet is to make use of the search function.

You know, you can touch a stick of dynamite, but if you touch a venomous snake it’ll turn around and bite you and kill you so fast it’s not even funny.

It_bit_me mentioned this in a earlier Cerastes cerastes post that you keep them much in the same way as the small bitis spp.
