I have a red tail and she is about a year and a half. She is mean and I need to know how to deal with this. Any information would be great.

    It would be a good idea to try and hold her more often as this time with you allows a bond if she is small enough do this on your own so she learns your smell and touch.

    The best advice I would say is if she bites-use gloves and handle her every day or every other day-not just during feeding times. Gradually, you won't need the gloves (hopefully) and she will get used to being handled even for a little while. You really don't want a 7-12 foot boa who is aggressive-though it does happen. Hope that helps.

    Play with it more often. Or maybe your not feeding it enough.
  • Daniel - 2011-04-01
    Everyone's right so far. Feed her more often in a separate location. (''example'' a bath tub) also it takes about a year for snakes to remember a smell. "like you" so, play with her often.

    Hey John, I found that you have to handle them often, give them attention. At least once a week. I try to handle mine as much as possible.

    Let it sit on the floor and don't let any pets be around it.
    Don't touch it.

I am wondering if anyone can tell me what the difference is between rough and smooth green snakes? I
think the one I have might be rough. I live in Arkansas and they are supposed to be more common here than the smooth ones. I found her (think it's a her) two weeks ago, and she ate a grasshopper on the second day. I have her in a clear tank that used to have a hamster in it, and the bottom is covered with potting soil and a few small plants. I also have a 40watt day, and 40 watt night lamp, and keep a small dish of water and mist daily. Is there anything else I need to do to keep her healthy. I tried keeping these types of snakes (we called them grass snakes) since I was 11. I'm 31 now and this is the first one that would actually eat, so that's a good start I guess. She's about 2 feet long so she's mature.

    The difference is the scales. If the snake feels rough, then its a rough snake. If it feels smooth, no roughness at all, then its a smooth snake, and being about 2 ft long it could be either.

I found a blue snake I thought. I guess it turns out to be a rough green snake. I'm from unity maine. I'd never seen one before, it kinda freaked me out at first, thinking there's no such thing as a blue snake. It's pretty cool. About a foot long. Found it in my garden, not sure how it died. Didn't look like nothing was wrong with it. I guess I'm one of the lucky ones to see it. Thanks for letting me know what it was.

    Probably was a garter if you found it in Maine.
  • melanie - 2011-05-02
    If it was blue and dead, then it was a green snake, probably a smooth type since your in Maine. I don't think they are rough are up that way. For some reason, I can't remember exactly why, when green snakes, die, the yellow pigmentation goes away leaving behind just the blue. If you remember what the scales looked like you can tell whether it was smooth or rough. A rough green with have a rough feel and keeled scales (small raised ridges on every scale) and a smooth with be just that, smooth, feels like a really old basketball.

    They will probably look a little like mom and a little like dad, same way as us humans. Of course they will have about 30 babies so hang on daddy your going for a ride.

Hi I'm Daniel and I have a 5 year old RTB that's about 9 feet long and very healthy. My question is, can she regrow teeth? She was a little hungry a few months back. One of the small cats I had at the time got on her tank and my RTB tried to eat her. She got her teeth stuck in the tank cover and I had to break them to get her unstuck. Will they grow back? Please reply to (xxxthevilxxx@cox.net) Thanks for your help.

    There is a good chance your red tail boa will grow back its teeth. Teeth can be lost during feeding, which necessitates that they have a way of replacing them. Most snakes have several sets of teeth come in throughout their lifetimes.

Look for rescue groups. Here in VA the group is called VIIPER. You can get a python for a $30-$80 adoption fee. I just got my first albino female. My wife found her on CraigsList at a good price. ($375 for everything but a heat pad) So look around, there are deals everywhere. Snakes are great pets. They are more fun than one would think especially the right breeds like this one. Just do your research.
