    Default World's Most Colorful Snake? - The 100 Flower Snake (Moellendorff's Ratsnake)

    Hi, Frank Indiviglio here. I’m a herpetologist, zoologist, and book author, recently retired from a career spent at several zoos, aquariums, and museums, including over 20 years with the Bronx Zoo.
    Although various American ratsnakes have long been pet trade staples, Asian species have received far less attention from snake enthusiasts. Among them, however, we find a fantastic diversity of colorful, interesting species, some of which are now being bred in captivity. My favorite is the magnificent Moellendorff’s Ratsnake or 100 Flower Snake (Orthriophis moellendorffi). It’s other common names – Red-Headed Ratsnake, Flower Snake and Trinket Snake – are a testament to its striking coloration. Considered by many to be the most beautiful of all ratsnakes (“designer morphs” included!), Moellendorff’s Ratsnake care is now fairly well-understood…and it may well become the next “break-out” species from Asia!

    Hello Ted - You hit on one of my handsdown favorite snakes!..I was lucky enough to see Tiger Rats in the wild, and that did it for me! They need lots of space, but are well-worth it in my opinion; Here's some info: Captive Care of Latin American Ratsnakes - The Tiger RatsnakeThat Reptile Blog best, Frank
