Emerald star snake plant care
Emerald star snakes are kept in homes for the decorative purposes, but are actually poisonous. It is a common misconception that it is relatively safe to keep insect eaters in the same room as snake pets, but in fact the chemical in the snakes' saliva can harm the pet.
For an individual to maintain a healthy snake, taking care of it is a must. Make sure your snake is properly fed on an appropriate diet and has adequate space to move around. Regular snake handling helps to keep the snake in good health. When you sleep, your snake is also at risk of being in close contact with the furniture, which can cause its suspension to be weakened, which can lead to its death.
Feeding a healthy snake
Snakes need to eat three times daily. It is recommended that you feed your snake a small amount of live food (or freeze-dried insects) to keep it in good health. An adequate diet helps the snake to avoid diseases. It is important to feed the snake in the middle of the day.
The type of food it eats depends on its age and size. Young snakes eat vegetables and eggs as well as lizards and mice. Adult snakes eat insects, frogs, fish, and other small animals. When the snake is very young, it may eat crickets and mealworms. As it grows, it becomes more adventurous, eating small birds, frogs, and mice.
To keep your snake in good health, be sure to provide it with the following:
Fresh, clean water
Protection from environmental hazards
Promote the health of your snake
The ideal temperature for keeping a snake is between 85°F and 95°F. It is recommended that the temperature be kept between 50°F and 87°F. Keeping it in lower or higher temperatures can also cause stress, which results in poor health. Heating and cooling an outdoor enclosure may help your snake to maintain a comfortable temperature in the summer and winter.
Ensure that the enclosure it is kept in maintains sufficient humidity. A relative humidity of 40-60 percent is ideal. If the enclosure has been kept dry, add fresh moss or sphagnum to the bottom of the enclosure to encourage moisture.
The enclosure should be well ventilated to avoid humidity problems. There should be openings for excess heat or hot air to escape.
Petting a healthy snake
You can keep the snake in an enclosure all day. However, to prevent the snake from getting too stressed, it is best to keep it in the enclosure for about two hours in the morning and two hours in the afternoon. If you wish to leave the snake overnight, place it on clean, moist litter, store it in a cool, dry place, and do not expose it to direct sunlight.
If you do not want to have your snake in your room, a safe place to keep it is as far away from your bed as possible. A snake can be kept in a small paper bag or under a chair. However, if you are confident that the snake will not harm you, you can place it in a suitable box or cage.
Regular snake handling can help a snake to stay healthy. A snake may be able to lift up or bite its tail. This is normal behavior and not a sign of illness. However, if the snake starts to lift its tail before biting it, it is a sign that there is a health problem. You should take your snake to a veterinarian as soon as possible.
Handling a healthy snake
It is very important that you use “safe” snakes. It is suggested that you choose a snake that is not aggressive and has a calm temperament. The snake should be mature and should be around four to six months old. Avoid reptiles such as boas, and those that have a very long tail that can be lifted when the snake feels threatened or when it is lifted.
Never attempt to handle a snake by yourself. Never try to pick it up by the tail, which should be closer to its body. You should never hold the snake by the neck and should never pinch it or grasp it. You should never prod the snake with a stick or poke it with a stick. If you ever have to pick up the snake, you should place your hands in the same order as on a clock face. This will facilitate you handling the snake.
You should never feed a snake after handling it. If you are going to handle your snake regularly, you should feed it a small amount of live food, such as crickets and mealworms, after every feeding.
Healthy snake care
The snake should be kept in a quiet room with no other pets.
You should not place your snake in direct sunlight or near any heating devices.
The ideal temperature for a snake's enclosure is between 85°F to 95°F.
Humidity levels should be around 40-60 percent.
Avoid feeding it too much.
Ensure that the snake is housed in a clean, safe enclosure.
