Prosymna stuhlmanni, East African Shovel Snout snake info?

Postby Snakeguy5 » Fri Nov 07, 2014 9:58 pm

Does anyone on here know any care information for these snakes? An importer here in the USA recently got some in and I thought they looked interesting.

Any help would be greatly appreciated :D

Avoid them like the plague!

Yes, they look interesting, but their diet is extremely unique; they only eat gecko eggs, possible the eggs of other lizards too.

Not the easiest diet to recreate in captivity.
