well u will need a water dish that is big enough that he can swim in, and u will want to change the water every other day, also u will wanna put about six rosies in there every 3 or 4 days after he eats the first 6. put reptile bark in for the substrate. Good Luck!

you should clean the terrarium every week or so. eddie sells reptile bark for 6 dollars. the snake is mildly tame but hold him for an hour or so each day and he will get perfect in a day or two (i havent had the time to handle him much)

aspen bedding is a really good substrate. it’s cheap and it reduces stress because they can hide in it and it is pretty much dust free.i have the cage 1/4 reptibark 3/4 aspen bedding.

alright good kill an inocent norhtern.

your going to have to catch it on your own though.

good luck!

[your not going to be very enthusiastic very long.......... when youve got a 4 foot long aggressive water snake its not going to be very much fun]

no you fool.

quinn wants you to have it because he wants you to get bit and stuff.

he told me this personally.

im pretty sure he likes me more than you and hes just making this up.

thank you for condemning this snake to death.
