Hey all! Excited to say that I got a new snake at repticon a few weekends ago, and he is a GORGEOUS one! He is a Pastel Banana Ball Python, and he still doesn't have a name so I definitely need help with that! Please give me some suggestions!
He's not super friendly, but I'm confident I will be able to make him comfortable around humans and myself soon enough.. He's struck a few times but never to hurt, just to try and warn me off because he is scared still. He's currently in shed so both of these pictures I took are ot of him fully vibrant which is hard to believe! I'll try to get more as soon as he's done shedding

He's cute! I love baby bananas. <3 He's probably not friendly because it's stressed in a new environment. I'm sure he'll become a bit more tolerant once he's settled. c: What sort of name themes are you looking for?

Well, if you like silly names, I know a lot of people name their snakes after pasta. Fettuccine, Spaghetti, Noodle, etc. One of mine is named Soba after the soba noodles. lol If you want to go with the banana theme, you could call him Sundae or Pudding?

Hey guys ^^
I’m teaching in a lab of 2nd year undergraduates Thursday about snakes. I know the stuff I need to know to teach but I’d love to hear some really interesting facts or funny stories anybody has about different snakes so I can make it really interesting and not bore them with too much dentition, anatomy or evolutionary things. The snakes at the lab will be false water cobra, Cali king snake, western hognose, Nicaraguan dwarf boa, corn snake and an irian jaya carpet python ^^
Soooooo in short, any weird, strange facts or funny stories ye could tell me? I’d really appreciate ^^

Hey, so recently my garter snake died of unknown reasons, and I'm looking to maybe get another in spring.

I would feed them a combination of fish (minnows and guppies, stay away from goldfish) and worms (store-bought nightcrawlers and maybe some hand caught ones).

I have a few questions:
-I read I need to supplement an all-fish-and-worm diet because they aren't eating mice. What can I buy to supplement it?
-Will store-bought nightcrawlers (the kind used for fishing) carry parasites? Is that why my other garter died? He didn't display any symptoms..
-Would a captive bred garter be able to eat wild-caught worms? I'd think their immune system might not handle it, and then there's the risk of parasites..
-How can I avoid parasites in my worms?

Thank you!

howdy yall! so i got a big question

i have a 2 year old corn snake, he's lived in a 10gal his whole life but he's outgrowing it now and ive just purchased a 40gal tank for him. however i bought it secondhand and its kind of diety and stinky lmao. it looks to be in good condition besides that but im so so worried about it having bacteria that might harm my snake. how do i fix it? how do i clean the tank properly?

i have cage cleaner, i was thinking about rinsing it out with water first, then using antibacterial soap and water, then rinsing it again, the using my cage cleaner, then rinsing it a final time. is that thorough enough? should i use a bleach solution or chlorhexidine or something?

i just am super super worried and i dont want him to get sick :(

any tips on how to move a smake between tanks, as well?? i just have so much anxiety about doing something wrong

the only way to remove all bad things of concerns that could possibly affect your snake if there were reptiles in it previously would be to wash it out however you wish so that the surface is clean and then use f10 veterinary disinfectant or chlorhexidine. These are the only substances that will completely sterilize the surface for a new animal
