Green Snake Health Information

The Green Snake is often difficult to keep in captivity. They have problems with internal and external parasites, and do not easily adapt to new foods. In fact, one of the main problems with keeping Green Snakes in captivity comes from the fact that we don't fully understand their diet. Moths, crickets, grasshoppers, spiders and earthworms are a typical Green Snake diet.

In captivity, they should be fed a constant food source twice a week. Crickets are best, due to their availability, however, the crickets should be gut loaded with a special mixture. The crickets should kept with food so they don't nibble at the Green Snake. Green Snakes should never be given food that is wider than their body.

A water dish should be provided for the Green Snake, but they prefer to drink water drops off of leaves, so their cage should be misted once or twice a day. Green Snakes should be kept in a habitat with a temperature range from 75 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

The Green Snake is difficult to breed in captivity. Breeding occurs in the springtime. Nesting will happen in the summer. Green Snakes choose nesting sites that have sufficient moisture. Green Snakes lay between two to fourteen eggs. Incubation takes roughly 30 to 45 days. If the temperature is cold, the eggs can take 80 days to hatch. When the eggs hatch, the baby snakes will be four to six inches long. Green Snakes are considered to be mature when they reach a size of 14 to 16 inches, which takes about two years.
