Rat Snake Yellow Health Information

Because they are native to the warm Southern states of North America, during the day, Yellow Ratsnakes will require a cage temperature of about 80 degrees Fahrenheit, with a basking area about 85 degrees. Drop the temperature to the low 70s at night. Yellow Ratsnakes are also arboreal, which means you should provide them with lots of sturdy branches and shelving so they can exercise.

Yellow Ratsnakes are fairly easy to breed and some do not need a cooling period, judging breeding season instead by the length of daylight. Before breeding, the snakes should be very well fed. The female Yellow Ratsnake should be introduced into the male's cage and removed if they do not breed, being re-introduced after a few hours or each day until copulation occurs. March to May are prime breeding months for Yellow Ratsnakes. Using newspaper as a substrate in the breeding cage will allow you to look for drops of sperm, which will indicate that breeding, has occurred. Give the female a plastic nestbox filled with damp sphagnum moss, peat, or vermiculite. Sometimes, the Yellow Ratsnake will indicate she is ready to lay by shedding. After one to two months, if breeding was successful, the female Yellow Ratsnake will lay about 18 eggs, which will be stuck together in a clump. Do not try to separate the eggs from each other or the surface to which they are glued, as this will damage them. The eggs should be kept at about 85 degrees Fahrenheit with 75 to 100 percent humidity. Hatchlings, which are about eight to ten inches long, will emerge after about two to three months. The young Yellow Ratsnakes will shed frequently and should be fed on pinkie mice. Yellow Ratsnakes are good breeders and may double clutch.
