i am looking at buying a childrens python but after research i read that they can be cages in 2's or 3's. i already have a 4 foot cistern and a licence but havent decided one what species.
i have had a snake and solely want 'one' that is calm and friendly.
Hi Monkey !
Yes you can buy newly one Children's Python (Liasis Childrenii) Snakes are generally solitary creatures anyway, however - if you want to carry more than one - they can be housed together so long as they're the same species and similar sizes.
there is a species of python called the Childrens python. this species is a very small species.
but whether you are wanting to know what kind of python would be good to have beside children here are a few.
Red tailed boa (large but very calm personality)
rainbow boas (nippy when young,but soft as adults)
black headed pythons
those are the top boids that i think of as good unemotional snakes
snakes are animals that do best when housed singlely
also what do u mean by cages in the 2's or 3's. do u aim by feet or what? please clarify
i reread the 2's and 3's. snakes can be keept in groups but it usually is for breeding purposes. within fact keeping multi snakes in a cage could be dangerious for other other snakes during feed time as two snakes can eat on the same prey and end up drinking the other snake.
Childrens pythons will do greatly well alone -- its not mandatory to have more. (As a matter of reality, the only reason I'd put more than one in a single viv is for breeding purposes and explicitly a whole 'nother book!) They are pretty docile and make good pets.
I'm assuming you are talking about the Children's Python from Australia, named after John Children?? Keeping one of these snakes contained by a habitat by itself is perfectly acceptable. In my experience, unless two (or more) neonates (baby snakes) have be raised together since hatching it causes undue stress to introduce and maintain more than one specimen per enclosure. Just because more than one snake can be kept in an enclosure does not propose they should be. Breeding season is, of course, a different matter.
The Children's Python is, generally, a docile snake approaching you are looking for. They stay small and, with a little bit of work, tolerate people fairly well.
Good Luck and enjoy your new snake when he arrives!!
if you have children i don't recommend Burmese pythons because they can get up to 16 feet or maybe even bigger and bring back aggresive. I've never owned a python but I've been around them a few times and I know a little bit about respectively snake. I've heard that corn snakes is good for a household with children. same near king snakes. I own one of those and its calm and laid back and will run before it bites. I'm not certain about other snakes though. if you want something that will get up to conceivably 4 feet and not be aggressive I would take a chance on California king snakes. but whether you want something that's not going to get that big i recommend a corn snake. but im sure a ball python will be merely fine as long as you house it properly and feed it in another enclosure other after its cage. and handle it for about 20 mins or more a sunshine. 2 or 3 in a cage is fine they'll curl up together and all that. but whether you decide not to get a python and consider a king snake. IT WILL EAT ANOTHER SNAKE THE SAME SIZE AS IT AND WILL EAT ITS OWN KIND.
check out this website. it helped me opt what to get and how to take care of the snake the best i could.
Answers: Why do people deduce such stupid things? The previous answers were unbelievably silly
Anyway before I start ranting - I haven't personally kept children's python but I run a reptile rescue so have to be prepared for acceptance one any time. What appears to be a good website for them is this http://www.antaresia.com/
I think you should find all the answers you require in that
Its a wild animal you can't predict docille or unreserved especialy with snakes or any reptile cause sooner or later you will grasp bitten.
