Fan-shaped Jelly Fungus

Hypomelanistic Honduran

Honduran Milksnake

Lampropeltis triangulum hondurensis

The most popular large milksnake in the hobby. Due to a significant amount of color and pattern variability, selective breeding will continue to expand the possibilities of producing currently unseen morphs. These snakes can get up to six feet long.
$100-$150 each

Albino Nelson's

Nelson's Milksnake

Lampropeltis triangulum nelsoni

The intensity of colors has to be seen to be believed. This is the easiest of the albino tricolors to get to breeding size in 18 months - and the most likely to double clutch. Increased availability and lower prices insure that this snake will become a staple in colubrid collections.

Pantherophis guttatus

These are the most popular snakes in herptoculture, and with good reason. Corn snakes are moderately sized, tame and inexpensive. They are also beautiful and hardy pets available in an array of different colors and patterns.
$40-$75 each

King Snake

Western Black King Snake

Lampropeltis getula nigrita

An all-black snake, this is one of my favorites. It is less nervous and more easily handleable than other subspecies of common king snakes. They make excellent pets.

Pine Snake

Pine & Bull Snakes

Pituophis sp.

These big snakes typically get 6-7 feet in length and are heavily built. Pine snakes and bull snakes are often the "next step" for people who keep corn snakes and kingsnakes. No one can accuse these snakes of not having personality!
$75-$100 each

Rat Snake

Rat Snake

Elaphe sp.

Larger in size and with more "attitude" than their relatives the corn snakes, rat snakes are a good choice for individuals who have had some snake keeping experience and want to try something a little different.
$50-$100 each

Garter Snake

California Garter Snakes

Thamnophis sp

These snakes start off eating fish, but eventually can be switched to rodents. They are quite colorful and do great in naturalistic terrariums. I work with three different species.
$50-$150 each
