Basic Care Information:
Indo-Chinese Rat Snakes are an active species that thrive in a spacious enclosure with climbing options. They are climbers by nature, providing plenty of branches, vines, or similar structures. A coconut fiber and bark mix is ideal for the substrate to mimic their natural habitat and retain humidity.
Heat your enclosure with a gradient approach, maintaining one end warmer (around 85°F) and the other cooler (around 75°F). A humidity level between 50-70% is optimal, with an increase during shedding periods.
Indo-Chinese Rat Snakes are keen hunters in the wild, feeding primarily on rodents and birds. In captivity, they fare well on a diet of appropriately sized rodents, with feeding frequency dependent on the snake's age and size. Nighttime temperatures can drop slightly but should not fall below 70°F.
While these snakes are not typically considered a beginner species due to their size and fast-moving nature, they can be a rewarding pet for those willing to meet their specific care requirements. Not typically a handling species, they are best appreciated for their aesthetic appeal and natural behaviors, bringing an exotic flair to any reptile collection.
