African House Snakes (Boaedon fuliginosus)

2015 Male & 2020 Female, Kenya Red locality - $600 for both

Male (pic 6) is full grown and came to me as an adult, weighs ~95g and ~2 ft. Coppery red colour. Flighty attitude like a typical house snake, he'll act nervous if you try to approach him. He was not handled much previously but can be held if you are patient. Eating hopper mice 1-2 times per month. Imported from Karsten Kamke @ Snakeguy in the EU. Female (pic 5) is unrelated to him but also imported from the EU, she weighs ~12g and eats pinky mice 3-4 times per month. A bit darker red than the male. Small fast and feisty, she is currently under 1 ft but will grow up to ~3-4 ft as an adult.


2019 Male Zambian & Female Ugandan Green locality - $450 for both

Male weighs ~13g (pic 1). Female weighs ~17g (pic 2). ~13 inches for both. Both are Green locality house snakes but are from unrelated lines so they look a bit different from each other. The colours of the male appear as a brighter yellowy green and the female being a deeper green. Green house snakes can noticeably shift hues over the course of the day & night, sometimes appearing lighter or darker than the last time you saw them. Both are eating pinky mice 3-4 times a month and have the same attitude as the reds do. Both are imports, male was produced by Rolf Dennison @ Ultimate Exotics and the female came from the EU.


Olive Snake (Lycodonomorphus inornatus)

2019 Female - $500

Weighs ~30g, ~15 inches. Dark green (pic 3) with a lovely sheen to her, she also brightens and darkens throughout the day. She can look almost black at her darkest and lightens up to a velvety olive green (pic 4). She requires access to a cooler, more humid environment with moisture-retaining substrate or humid hides. Would do very well in a bio-active setup. Shy but watchful lady, she'll poke her head out from her hiding places and observe you as you go about your day. She is sensitive to being touched, gloved hands seem to work better if you want to hold her. Not aggressive but may musk you if frightened, so best to be gentle and patient with her. Eating large pinkies/small fuzzies 3-4 times per month. Will grow to between 3-4 ft. She was also imported from Rolf Dennison. I don't mind if she stays here.


All snakes are eating F/T rodents, mite free and in good health. All snakes live in "basic but useful" housing with access to hide boxes, substrate to burrow in, branches and/or other objects to perch or climb on, some have humid hides as well. If housed in very minimal setups that don't offer them any features they make regular use of, they may gradually fail to thrive, and I cannot offer any guarantees under those conditions.
