"I teach 6th Grade Science in Virginia. I'm the sponser of the very popular "Snake Club" that meets every other week at the end of the day on Wednesdays. I thought Rough Green Snakes would be a good addition/replacement for what I already had. Boy was I right! I love these little guys and the kids do too. They are very active and for the most part are agreeable to being held. I ordered 2 yearlings and 2 hatchlings from Don Scolara in Florida. He sent me great ones and threw in an adult as a bonus. I've had them now for about 2 months. Unfortunately the two babies just died. I'm going to learn as much as I can so that when the female yearling that I have lays eggs next year (I hope), I will know better about keeping them alive. In the last two months, I have been tweaking their cage environment and find that they like 20-50% humidity and 70-90 degrees in Temperature. They eat crickets but they should be small crickets b/c they can't digest hard exoskeletons. My big one ate a huge spider. They also ate moths. The more soft-bodied insects we can get them to eat, the better. They do well on a varied diet from what I have read. If you feed them crickets than gut-load them by feeding them cricket food and collard greens and carrots. I too am shocked that these aren't more popular in the pet trade."
