This active and arboreal snake did not get its name for nothing! The Tawainese Beauty is a breathtaking snake with a sleek, attractive look. These snakes spend much of their time off of the ground and in trees. A habitat would have to include decor to replicate the avid climbing they experience in the wild. A fairly docile snake, the beauty is great for intermediate reptile owners or beginners with a quick hand.
Feeding tip: It is always recommended to feed snakes in a container outside of their habitat. This is the best way to help limit any feeding responses from being associated with the habitat. This will also keep any substrate from being ingested while eating. A secure, small plastic container is most commonly used. By keeping this container dark you help ease stress from being moved from their habitat.
