Natural Habitat
Colubrid Page

The family colubridae is the largest and by far the most diverse of all snake groups in the world, there are more than 1,500 species. The majority of all colubrids are harmless to us, although research has shown that a fairly large number have mildly venomous saliva, with one group, the opisthoglyphous colubrids, include a number of rear fanged species such as the vine snake and the blunt-headed tree snake that pose very little threat to humans.

Captive Breeding of Colubrid Snakes

This document, written by Steven T. Osborne, was originally published as a 4 part series in the 1982 edition ( Volume 4: Number 3,4,7, & 9 ) of the San Diego Herpetological Society Newsletter.

Captive Husbandry of the Sunbeam Snake

The sunbeam snake (Xenopeltis unicolor) is native to Indonesia and is often encountered in rice paddies. This species garners its common name from the incredible iridescence of its scales, a trait difficult to capture on film. The ground color of the snake's dorsal side is a dark brown, almost black, with the ventral side being a white or cream color.

Kingsear Reptiles - Sweden Private breeding of colubrids Colourmutations, Patternmutations & Wildcoloured


We are a private breeding facility located in the San Joaquin Valley of California. Although our main focus is Colubrids, (mainly Cornsnakes & Kingsnakes) we also breed select Boids as well as various lizards. Plans are under way to open our own retail reptile shop in the very near future. Currently the majority of our sales are via the internet and reptile trade shows.

Unusual Albino Snakes

I am a private hobbyist who would like to share with you through this site my collection of snakes. I have been involved in keeping and breeding reptiles for around 25 years, and started out like many others with cornsnakes. It was my goal to have all the corns that were pictured in the colour guide to cornsnakes. I nearly got there too, having over 100 adult cornsnakes I soon had a house full of them. Trying to stay ahead was very difficult, no sooner had you got the latest in corns, than another new colour phase was born. It was time to move on, cut down, it was going mad.

Rat and Corn Snake photos

I lived in south Florida from July 2000 until June 2003 after having lived mainly in Chicago. On 10 June 2003 I moved from Homestead Florida to Valdosta Georgia. I am fascinated by all the wildlife in the SE USA, so I have been taking lots of photos and putting them up on my website.
