Species:
Egg Eating Snake (Dasypeltis sp.).
Origin:
the Egg Eating snake is from Most of sub-Saharan Africa and parts of the Middle East.
Size and Longevity:
A fully grow Egg Eater grows to a size of 60-76cm (24-30 inches) in length.
General Description:
This snake is sometimes mistakenly identified as a Night Adder, due to the similar markings. Most are light brown, spotted and lined with black. Teeth are not present in the mouth, but they do have teeth like projections along the backbone to help saw and break the eggs. These teeth start from the base of the skull and continue for approx. 3 inches in adults..

Habitat and Cage:
start with a 20 gallon tank this species of snake is very active during the bird-breeding season, climbing through tree branches in search of freshly laid eggs. Provide a daytime temperature of 28-30C (82-86F) with a drop to 25C (77F) during the night. It's best to place a hide/box for humidity, using vermiculite with moss on top. The snake will enter the hide while shedding of the old skin.



Feeding:
No more defrosting rodents, they eat nothing but fresh bird eggs, be this finch, quail or small chicken eggs. You can feed this species two ways, a few eggs per week or allowing them to eat as much as them want for a few months, then no food while you simulate a wet season. In the wild, these snakes will only eat during the breeding season and must eat as many as they can, even if these means several eggs in one sitting. Then during the rainy season, they basically hide away until the breeding season comes around again. You can feed your snake a few eggs every week if you are not planning on breeding. Leave the eggs in the viv for a few days and then remove to prevent the eggs from going off and attracting bacteria.
