Saw people are posting their black milk snakes so I wanted to show off one of my babies. Hard to believe he will be totally black someday

Oh, that's so cool! I didn't know that they started out with the original coloring! How do they transition from colored to fully black? Typically how old are they when they begin to transition?

The black tipping on each of the red scales slowly starts to spread until the snake is totally black. So each she'd they get a little bit darker. The color change can happen at different rates for different snakes but I believe even the slower changing ones will be all back by 1.5 -2 years

They turn sooner rather than later, you'll see it darken each shed

What a looker! Where did you get him?? I was never into Colubrids, but I think this species has forced me to give them a chance lol

that's absolutely not true.

why are you feeding outside of the enclosure?

that bite had nothing to do with being fed in the enclosure. your current routine is likely to cause stress and regurgitation.
