Wolf snake help

Postby Buffelsdrift » Fri Nov 22, 2013 1:23 pm

Hi Guys

I am new here and need some advice on snake keeping.
I found this little wolf snake 2 nights ago. It is around 30cm in length. What an awesome and super docile snake. I would like to keep him for a while.
Will they eat anything other then lizzards? (like crickets, frogs, moths perhaps???).
If only skinks, how many and what size would be required per week?

O ja, and I would probably need a permit to keep or will I have to let this one go because it is not from a breeder?

No wild caught snake can ever be made legal, also wild caughts don't do very well so best to let it go.

I figured that after posting, too bad, it is such a nice little snake.

Yeah they are not keepers. Rather get a brown house snake.
