Yes, it has a good temperament but you need to know how the permit system in the western cape works, as far as I know it is illegal too keep any indigenous snake without a permit. So you cannot just take one out of the wild.

mgiddings you seem to be a fast learner man.
He is correct you need a permit to obtain one. They are easily available so you shouldn't have too much trouble getting one.

Jip. Very nice snakes! Getting permits is not that hard at all, its just a mission when it is a WC snake. If you get a CB one you will have no problems! I was told it was nigh on impossible to get a permit in the Free State, it was a lot of run around, but not that hard to get the permit once you actually find the Natcon offices!

Please won't someone organise the kid a snake!! And help him to get a permit.

I have Brown House eggs at the moment but I would need an export permit to send one out of KZN too, I would be happy to give you one Crested gecko if you organise the permits on your side and pay for courier (Last time it cost me about R124,00 rand to Cape town so I'm hoping someone there could help you out sooner because this is a bit much for a BHS. I must stress though that you will have to show me that you have the right setup for it and you must promise to look after it..

Klein Karoo Nationale Kunstefees. Never been, but sadly its not a reptile expo. Bhs are the best species for a beginner and it cultivates a keen interest and love for our indigenous herps. How old are you Crested Gecko?

honestly though, just in response to herpetologica's comment, I recon the best 'all round house snake' is an olive. They have beauty, size and are just that little bit less common. Olives get my vote!

I still prefer brown house snakes over any of the other. Keeping them is fun and it has alot less hassle then some of the other house snakes.

Besides DK you know auroras are the best looking house snakes.

A nice bug eye looks just as good.

Hi Crested gecko

I have a mate here in CPT that has a gravid Albino BHS that should be laying in a week or two, the guys are right, you wont have a problem with a permit if the snakes are captive bred. I can put you onto him if you're interested.

Cheers
