Tanzanian striped housies

Postby marc bt » Mon Jul 20, 2009 11:51 am

Goodday guys & gals,
lately i have been so interested in house snakes that it has caused me to go seeking for something a little different.
I have contacted a breeder in PE that has some captive bred Tanzanian striped house snakes, so i will be getting a pair when soon.
All i need is the following info:
What kind of heating should i go for, any at all?
Substrate?
Is there anyone else that keep these, if so what are they like to keep and any other demands that i should know about?
Any other info welcome. :-)

Have you asked the guy who bred them how he keeps his? Id say do what he does.

The true lineatus is amazing. Think it was mentioned that they can be temperamental buggers. I would love some.

They would make a nice addition to any collection.

Just becarefull when dealing with breeder you don't know, there is alot of striped capensis floating around.

@jka: This guy is well known by some of the keepers in KZN and i have been reassured that he is trustworthy.
thanks for the concern though.

I just can't wait to get these beauts!
Will post pics when i get them.

These so called Tanzanian striped house snakes i find quite often in namaqualand :roll: I would love to know where they actually originate from (the "Tanzanian" ones that is :D ). Right here in SA there are about 10 different colour/patterned BHS, from the "albino" right up to the patternless with iluminous eyey brows. Pretty awsome bu ti hav enot been able to keep them alive for longer than 2 years :(
