Product Description

Gopher Snake For Sale  

Pituophis catenifer

Joining the same genus as the Pine Snake and Bull Snake, the Gopher Snake is a powerful Colubrid and one heck of a hunter, virtually pirates of the prairie, invading rodent holes, consuming the residents, then calling the new digs home until they feel like moving on.  Sometimes exceeding six feet in length, they are both reasonably large, and incredibly strong, but despite a pretendency toward aggression, they can be easily calmed, becoming gentle, tractable pets.  Their care requirements are simple, needing only a loose medium in which to burrow, access to water, moderate to low humidity, and a nice secure top!  Their color patterns can vary, but are often similar to that of a Corn Snake, until you arrive at the face, which is more blunted, and with a characteristic set of eyes that is immediately recognizable as a member of the Pituophis genus.  Easy to breed and oviparous, the Gopher generally hibernates in the winter, but will not need to if conditions are kept consistent in their captive environment.  An excellent choice for any beginner, and anyone who appreciates the rugged milieu of the American Southwest and its resilient denizens.  Individuals available are young juveniles.

Bottom Line?  

A strong, hardy, attractive, beast of a Colubrid, the Gopher Snake is a mammal eating extraordinare, with a rock solid appetite, tractable disposition, and reasonable price tag to boot; a beginner could certainly do worse!
