The snakearound site is intended for beginners and novices who are starting out in terrariophilia with a Pantherophis guttatus, or simply for those who want resources on how to maintain their snake.
For a more personal presentation, my name is Wendell and I have done a lot of research on the maintenance of the Gutt, to prepare for the arrival of mine. It has been a long time of research and reflection, so I wanted to make available all the information and answers to the questions I had asked myself.
My first Gutt arrived in April 2015, I now own 4 of them as well as a Boaedon capensis, a Gonyosoma prasinum and an Elaphe climacophora. Compared to some enthusiasts, this may not seem like much, but it is the result of a choice. Each Gutt is currently housed in a 120x60x60, I wish to give each animal a large enough living space and try to reproduce their natural environment. For that, I need space and means, both in terms of time and money. So I limit myself in my desires and the species I wish to maintain to concentrate on my favourites. Thus, I hope to have the means to keep my animals in the best conditions during their life at home.
The blog section will contain feedback on my snake experiences, personal reflections on terrariophily and news on the wheat snake.
The site can be rectified according to this experience. But the information here is the result of research on multiple sites, forums, Facebook groups … So feedback from other people.
Terrariophilia is a practice that each person manages differently, so opinions often change from one person to another. That’s why I tried to collect all possible information so that you can weigh all the solutions and choose the most suitable for you.
If you disagree with certain information, or if some topics have not been discussed, do not hesitate to contact me via the contact form. All feedback is welcome, and the site will be updated regularly.
I hope that you will find all the information you need, and long live our passion for the wheat snake.
