Indigo eastern Health Information

Adult Eastern Indigo snake should be housed in a large terrarium. One side of the tank should have a hide box and they other should have a warmer basking area. Hide boxes are important as this species spends much of its time in hiding. A large water dish should be placed in the tank, and it serves a dual purpose. Water will provide a good soaking spot as well as increase humidity in the enclosure.

Eastern Indigos are diurnal snakes and should therefore be fed in the daytime. They have fairly fast metabolisms and should be fed frequently. Once a week is usually sufficient.

The Eastern Indigo is bred regularly in captivity. They usually breed in the fall or winter, and as with all colubrids, they are egg layers. The eggs should be incubated at 78 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit and should hatch in approximately 90 days. Hatching occurs approximately 200 days after the snakes have bred.

Breeding ease is reported by some keepers to be easier and more difficult than many colubrid species by other keepers. This seems to be related to proper diet, care, and housing. Specimens without the proper conditions are less likely to successfully breed. Most people have found them to be more difficult to breed than other colubrids. Before breeding it is important that they have been well fed and have good body weight. When attempting to breed these snakes the enclosure should be cooled slightly to simulate the onset of fall/winter.
