Marvel at the vibrant hues of the Pueblan X Nelson Milk Snake, a perfect blend of two beautiful subspecies. Known for their strikingly colorful bands of red, black, and white or yellow, these snakes offer a truly captivating visual experience. Their compact size, usually 2 to 3 feet, makes them a manageable and enjoyable addition to any reptile collection.
These hybrids inherit the best traits from the Pueblan and Nelson Milk Snakes, providing a harmonious balance of aesthetics, temperament, and hardiness. Their gentle nature and readiness to handle make great pets for beginners and seasoned snake keepers.
Basic Care Information:
Taking care of a Pueblan X Nelson Milk Snake is a rewarding experience. Their enclosure requires a temperature gradient, with a warm end reaching 85-88°F and a cool end around 70-75°F. A hide box should be provided at both ends. The substrate can be as simple as newspaper, but aspen shavings or similar substrates can be used for burrowing behavior.
The diet for these snakes consists primarily of rodents, with size and quantity based on the age and size of the snake. As a rule of thumb, the prey item should be about the same width as the widest part of the snake's body. Juveniles may be fed every 5-7 days, with adults fed every 7-10 days.
Humidity levels should be maintained at around 40-60%. This can be increased during shedding periods to help facilitate the process. Regular handling is encouraged to keep them accustomed to human interaction, but always remember to handle them gently and respectfully.
Give your reptile collection a splash of color and charm with the delightful Pueblan X Nelson Milk Snake!
