First i need help find a descent place to order a ribonSnake i have look every where and cant find some where to get them.
Do they make good pets and how big do they get.
What kind of materal do they like best in there cage.
Also would feeding them guppies and earthworms be a good diet if so how many a day or a week or what.

UM , yea they are the best pet snake in the world!
they can get 2 feet at largest.
um, feed them mostly guppies and they also eat large crickets when they are older. and every once in a while give em a pinky mouse. (crickets dusted in calcium supplement.)
give them UVB light and a heat rock and lots of burrow in and hiding places.
water bowl should be big enough to ’swim in.

I love garter and ribbons they are my FAVORITE!!!!!!!!

good luck

they never eat crickets or any insect other than earthworms(which is not an insect btw).a varied diet would consist of frogs,toads,minnows, rosy red minnows,etc but absolutely NO

they never eat crickets or any insect other than earthworms(which is not an insect btw).a varied diet would consist of frogs,toads,minnows, rosy red minnows, pinkies,etc but absolutely NO goldfish because they are very bad for the garter’s health. also dust food occasionally(like twice a month) in calcium dust.

with the corn snake, i would say on firsthand experience that they are better and easier to care for than garters.although they are usually nocturnal. but they grow up to 5 feet max. mine is about 2 and 1/2 feet long.
