Recommended Setup: A 24x18x18 vivarium minimum, if you would like to purchase a vivarium suitable for your snake for several years, or even for life, then consider our 36x18x18" (£135) and 48x18x18" (£160) Nocturnal Setups. If you would like to provide as much space as possible, consider our 48x24x24" (£190) Nocturnal Setup. These are diurnal snakes and benifit from UVB lighting though it's not strictly required. This species doesn't do as well in a starter kit as it's hard to get the temperatures stable in a plastic enclosure.
Details: Western Hognoses are rear fanged and as such produce a mild venom. You may want to spend some time researching or discussing this before this snake is handled by children. Whilst under normal circumstances a bite would result in mild swelling and localised pain, everyone responds differently and it is possible to be allergic to the venom, like a bee sting.
These hognoses were bred here at Reptile Cymru.
