    Default 1.2 Rats

    I got a trio of adult Texas rat snakes in last week.

    Sorry for the crappy pictures, all three looked like they wanted to take my face off!

    They are so beautiful. The only one I've ever seen in person was a baby, so it's neat to see what they look like as adults.

    Thank you. The darkest female reminds me of an Indigo!

    The male is really, really nice! Funny what you take for granted when you see them all the time. When you see a ton of them each time you go look, you kind of get jaded to them.

    Thank you.

    I heard from people on another forum that normally the orange on these guys starts to fade after each shed. I'm glad the male kept it I saw the male & female #2 copulating the other day, so fingers crossed!

    It depends on the animal and locality. Some I find as adults are more yellow and red. Others are more gray and brown. If you like the Texas rats check out bairds rats. This is a young individual I found in west Texas while doing lizard studies.
