Can someone tell me the species of arboreal, not venomous snakes that don't require high humidity (so no tree boas/pythons). Thanks.

I have a carpet python (Jungle/Diamond intergrade) that, although not strictly a treesnake, does spend a lot of time climbing in her cage. Also, some of the Elaphes (Baird's Ratsnake?) will often make use of climbing branches if you put them in their cages. Depends on whether you want an animal which will never use a hide, and always be visible on branches, or whether you're willing to go for one which is semi-arboreal.

Yeah, but notoriously difficult to keep and I am not sure if its availible in Europe. The article mention yellow rat snakes which are easier and may be availible in Europe. They are quite cheap here. Perosnally, I like yellow rats, Elaphe obsoleta quadrivittata.

I've thought about ratsnakes, but, uhm, I don't know where to get them and if I really like them that much to start a breeding colony. The fact is that the viv I got some weeks ago (150x50x100 cm) is made in cheap wood and has cork sticked on the inner walls. I thought to treat the floor and ceiling with silicone and to seal the gaps between the cork sheets to make it humidity proof. I'd like to start a little breeding colony of Amazon tree boas (I like them a lot). Now I'm afraid that the humidity could penetrate the cork enough to make the wood mold. Any ideas if this can happen?

That's it.

Same here as said in the previous post. I like them, but not enough to start breeding. But thanks for the idea.

I heard that yellow rats are pissy about being handled and will express their displeasure by biting, is this true?
